I wasn’t dead … I was just partying

Weird title huh? That is the translation of a Mexican saying “No estaba muerto, andaba de parranda” …. and we usually say it when … we haven’t been around for a while somewhere and just want to say that “nothing was wrong… I was just busy” or something like that… So… here I am… I have had some pretty slow days to be honest… My whole routine got a little messed up because I had to cook for a group of ladies and it took the whole day, I ended so tired that I didn’t exercise (plus the cooking/baking) absorbed all of my day… then I had dinner with that group of ladies and I ate the same thing I cooked for them… including a slice of a Mexican dessert that is just MARVELOUS! (I had a very very thin slice) but I was actually worried when I got on the Wii balance board … Thank God my weight didn’t change! then after that I got my period (yesterday) and … well… I get hungrier… so I’ve been “snacking” a little more and lazier than usual so I haven’t had my exercise as tough as I usually do! -sigh- but today… I did better and when hubby came home from work I exercised for 45 mins. (at least!) 15 mins. on the elliptical (60 calories onlyCOME ON!!!) and then when a treadmill was available I ran for 30 mins. at 4.5 mph so that was good! It felt great (burnt 362 calories) … It’s amazing to see the big difference in burnt calories when you are thinner! I remember I would’ve probably burnt 450 – 500 calories for the same run when I started at 223 pounds and now… I only burnt 362 but that’s ok! It’s for a good reason! I am lighter and that’s great! I can actually MOVE MY ARMS as I run now unlike in the beginning I had to hold on to the railing of the treadmill while walking!!!

So…. my weight is the same 182.8 pounds! I will go back hard at it to leave the 180’s behind me soon!

  1. You probably burned some calories woring in your kithen all day if you were so tired. You only had a thin slice od that mysterious dessert so you did good I think. See that as a day off diet and then move on 🙂 You can run 30 minutes! It’s great. I don’t know why running scares me. I see that as something impossible for me…I don’t know why… 🙂

    • I then attributed the “being so tired” to my period coming… but you are right! I don’t think I sat all day long that day! So I probably did burn many more calories than I thought! … Running has scared me my whole life… I will probably post about it in my next post… you’ll see 😉

  2. I never thought I could run either…. now look at me. 🙂
    I have an elliptical at home, and it kicks my butt EVERYTIME! I always think I’ve burned way more calories than it shows. I think my heart races more and I sweat more when I work out on that, than when I run. The switch up with cardio is a good thing. Your body burns more calories when you keep it guessing. Even with your little sliver of dessert, I don’t think you have to worry much about the scale. Try to think of exercising and calorie intake as a weekly average. Somedays a little more, somedays a little less….
    Good to hear from you again. 🙂
