Holy Moly Exercise
Sunday, January 22, 2012
I didn't eat the best today. Still have almost 550 calories I should eat. No room left for fat. And I should still eat 14 more grams of protein. :( I'm more worried about going over my fat than I am about the protein though... but I'm gonna look for some no-fat dairy & veggies for supper. Time to get creative.
Since I ate so bad though I got a tiny tummy ache. But I said I'd do my exercise today so I did. I told myself that all I had to do was 10 minutes and then I could stop. But then after 10 minutes I felt good enough to keep going & didn't want give up. So I kept going. I immersed myself in the 2nd episode of The Biggest Loser and next thing I knew I had done 30 minutes. I was getting a little tired and wanted to stop but then I asked myself if I could give it more. I thought I could. So instead of watching the timer on the machine creep along I covered it & just kept going until I really felt fatigued. Then I peeked & saw I was over 45 minutes. Well I have this thing about stopping between 5 minute intervals so I had to go to at least 50 minutes, being the longest I've ever been on the thing, and covered the timer back up. Peeked a little while later & it was at 58:25. I was pretty tired now & watched until it hit 60 minutes & finally stopped. I EXERCISED FOR 60 WHOLE MINUTES! So I told my husband who kinda scolded me for pushing myself too much (I was hoping for a "good job" but I know he means well). But I'm feeling ok now only about 10 minutes after. I'm not having any pain or anything, my muscles just feel tired. I think I've been underestimating what I can actually do. I logged my minutes into my Fitness Tracker & its told me that if I keep this up I'll have to modify my nutrition to meet the extra calorie needs. My thought on this is... more food, yea! But before I go modifying my nutrition I'm going to see how I feel tomorrow. I don't know if I can keep this up but I'm proud of my exercise today.
