Well, yesterday my goal was to burn the massive burger I ate on Sunday, along with the french fries and the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp! It was a great day, I got up at 5 to go running with my friend, it was cold and it felt “too early” with the whole time change, I didn’t get to see the sunrise but I still managed to run 1.5 miles non-stop and then walk the rest. It was a total of 3 miles. Then I stayed active during the day and went to the store (which is very close) just to get more steps in my day and later, when “the Biggest Loser” show started I got on the rowing machine and did 40 minutes IN A ROW! After the rowing I ate a protein bar and I felt great! Hopefully my body will start to show soon what I am doing, I promise there won’t be any more massive burgers, fries and shrimp like that… I can’t afford it! I really can’t! and I need to remember that… I am a little afraid because now my birthday is coming and then Easter but I know I can still make good choices, for my birthday we’ll go to Chili’s though… I know they do have good, healthier choices there so I am already committing to stay on “the good side” of the menu! Anyway… just for some numbers, my day ended like this:
13,560 steps taken
6.22 miles traveled
2698 calories burned
1341 calories eaten = 1357 calorie deficit (which could’ve all gone to my weight loss efforts but they have to go to making up for the huge dinner I had on Sunday)
Now… about The Biggest Loser, it was great, it was the last week at the Ranch and I love that week because they show the contestants, individually, the highlights of their journey, from beginning to end and then they show them a part they recorded at the beginning of the show where “the fattest version” of the contestant is speaking directly to him/herself saying “Never go back to this! Remember the sadness, depression, etc… you felt!” It’s very emotional and real! I am looking forward to watching “the BIG Live Finale” next week! it’s going to be GREAT! I am rooting for Danni! She truly deserves being THE BIGGEST LOSER! To the last week in the ranch not only she’s lost TONS OF WEIGHT, she’s also gained 19 pounds of muscle! 19 POUNDS OF MUSCLE! in 3 months! That’s awesome! and so inspiring!
Ok… that’s it for now… today I didn’t run in the morning because on Tuesdays hubby leaves at 5:30 a.m. so he wouldn’t be able to watch the girls, so I am running in the evening! I can’t wait!
