Hello! Well… yesterday I didn’t get to run in the morning, because hubby had to leave much earlier, he has Bible Study on Tuesday mornings, at 6 a.m. so he leaves around 5:40, so yesterday I had a friend over for coffee in the morning and I made a cake, I made a “Honey Bee Cake” and then just to go with it I made a brown sugar whipped cream. I had a bite from a thin slice that I gave to my littlest one… then after my friend was gone I made lunch, did dishes, etc… you know, the “normal” (and most basic) stuff around the house, I then got on my rowing machine and did 30 minutes of rowing, but in the evening I got to go running with my friend, again, we started walking, to warm up, we walked 1.5 miles and then ran the same distance back, I felt like I was suffocating! I was panting, getting lots of air in but felt like no oxygen at all… It was hard but I did it… this morning it was harder to get up to run, it feels like “I just did that!” because I pretty much just did! I went running last night so… it was hard to get myself out of bed to do it all over again, I couldn’t run the same amount, I think we only ran 1 mile today, although we still went the whole same distance walking, this time I didn’t feel like I was asphyxiating, just my legs weren’t responding as I wanted.
So… let’s see how I did yesterday with numbers:
12645 steps taken
5.89 miles traveled
2724 calories burned
1,467 total calorie intake
Calorie Deficit = 1257 calories… and they all go towards my weight loss efforts! Again… I hope I see some results on the scale too! But I am not going to obsess on that when I am already seeing results in my strength and just how I feel… but scale and measuring tape would help too! Yesterday I got on the scale and it showed +1.1 pounds! Yes … I gained weight! again! I am at 179 pounds and I am hoping it’s just a fluctuation, from that big dinner I had on Sunday but something that will soon go away because otherwise it doesn’t make any sense.
