Check-in... Day 6

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Well, I almost caved. But I didn't.

1572 calories for the day... and that included 2 cookies (and some batter). That also included gravy which doesn't have nearly as many calories when you remove the fat. In fact, for 1/4 cup of gravy, you only dish out 100 calories by skimming the fat off before you make it. A turkey can have over 1000 calories of fat sitting in the gravy! Wow! Plus the gravy is a lot smoother and doesn't have that greasy feeling on your lips. We save the the fat in the freezer for stir-frying.

I only had 4 servings of fruit and veg today.

Calories burned? 420+. For 21 minutes I walked and ran at one minute intervals. I walked another 27 minutes, too a break, then walked the dogs for half an hour. My knee is starting to hurt so the rest of this week will be a little easier.

How is this only day 6???

Goals Mon-Fri: Burn 300 calories/day. Aim for 10 jogging minutes. Eat under 1550 calories.

    Keep it up! I was scheduled to do a 20 minute jog a couple days ago, and I was pretty intimidated by that! I think you even gave me an extra push of encouragement :) I actually surprised myself by how easy it was! Get some good music pumping on that iPod and stride to the beat! (Or... just fall away into the scenery around you.)

    I like how you're blogging.. maybe I should do that more!
