Sunday is my lazy day. After going to the gym for 6 days straight, my body needs a day to heal. It gives me a chance to sleep in, to putz around the house, run some errands, or maybe go on a adventure.
After running out to the Great Outdoor Provision Company to drool over kayaks that Dave claims he is close to buying ;), we went out and found some coconut oil and coconut milk to try and make the super healthy no bakes. We also found some whole wheat graham crackers as I attempt to make a lowfat blueberry tart for Dave. At some point I'm going to have to share a blog entry about the Raleigh's Farmer Market and how it is one of my favorite things about living here in North Carolina.
Looking back at my weekly mini goals... I didn't do too bad! :) I went to both of the weekly BodyJam class and enjoyed the upbeat hour of cardio. According to the exercise page, Body jam burns close to 500 calories a class! I'm planning on keeping it in my weekly routine since it fits in nicely with my fall class schedule as well.
As far as keeping a food journal, I have to thank my friends Jessica, Sarah, and Cheryl for giving me some online tips. I ended up going with Cheryl's suggestion of myfitnesspal.com since it was easy to track food and exercise. I like the graphs it creates, lol. I feel all scientific and mathematically nerdy! My only concern with tracking everything is that I am becoming a little obsessed. I have a new goal for next week to take my mind of the numbers game.
The breakfast goal was good for the most part. I mean, every morning I ate something, but it wasn't as consistent as I could be. On the days were I would only scarf down a banana, I would be starving and miserable later. Lesson learned, breakfast DOES make a difference!!
As for the weekly calorie count? My tracker is already set to help me lose 2 pounds a week. I was under my calorie count every day this week. I had an extra 2269 of calories I could have eaten! :-P As for exercise? According to the tracker, in order to lose 2 pounds a week I need to do 150 minutes of exercise and burn at least 1290 calories. I managed to exercise for 337 minutes and burn 2904 calories. :) Hopefully the scale will be friendly with me tomorrow!
