Calorie Intake Update
Monday, May 02, 2011
So last week I set a new workout schedule for myself and updated my fitness goals. Some of you read that SP raised my calorie intake. This past Saturday finished out a full week with the new workout plan and new calorie intake. I did lose 1 pound, but I never felt like I was burning it. I don't know how else to say it... When I'm eating right and working out, it's like my whole body is geared differently. I think differently, feel different, act different.
So anyway, the new workout schedule is working great for me. I feel like I'm making progress. My calorie intake has been reset. Turns out, I hadn't changed the weight goal in the correct place. So the program was setting my calorie intake for someone who didn't have anything else to lose. I still had 4 pounds to lose. My calorie ranges is now back to 1200-1550.
I like this range much more. It's easier to eat right and stay in that range ( she says after 5 months of doing it). Now I have 3 pounds to go!!! I'm really liking my new workout schedule. In the mornings, I do 30 minutes of strength training and cardio. In the evenings, I'm doing another 30(sometimes 45) minutes. It FEELS easier to work into my day. Plus my mind and body get "reminded" twice a day instead of once.
I guess that's all to this update. I'm starting to gear up for vacation in 10 days-
We've been surrounded by flood waters since Sunday morning. All roads leading into town have been under water more than once in the past two days, but the sun is due tomorrow.
Good night, Friends!
