My Accountability - Update for 1/24/10 & 1/25/10

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

My biggest downfall in 2009 was not being consistent with tracking my food and being accountable for what I am eating.

My goals for 2010 include
1. Tracking Daily
2. Going to the Y 2-3 nights a week and Strength Training 2-3 days a week.
3. Cardio of at least 30 minutes every day even if it’s just walking
4. Getting back to the 130’s.

As part of my accountability for 2010 I plan to post here to my blog daily with my calories and cardio/exercise for the day.

Daily calorie range for food is 1,750 - 2,100 a day.
Burn a total of 4750 calories

***UGHH!!! Weight is totally stagnant! I am going with building muscle - yeah! That's it! More Muscle!***

Sunday 1/24:
30 minutes of something - 150 calories

I played on the Wii for a while. Did the EA Active 30 day challenge program, day 1. Tried to do it with my daughter but you really need 2 thigh straps and she hated the squats! Oh well - she is just 8. So I did it on my own then played on the Wii Fit Plus. 1 hour, 25 mins and 334 calories burned.

Calories: 1,723
Cardio: 334
Minutes: 84
Deficit: -458.66

Monday 1/25:
45 Minutes on Elliptical

So I got a new scale... today it is 1.1 pounds off from the Wii. What I am wondering is if the Wii Balance Board somehow got "off" because the weight JUMPED 2 pounds all of the sudden and it's been like that for a while. I know I'm not eating too much, so it's either the Wii or I am seriously adding muscle/retain water, etc. I'll be tracking both weights for a while to see what's up.

Did 35 minutes on the Elliptical then I did 50 pushups - 396 calories burned.

Calories: 1,637
Cardio: 396
Minutes: 40
Deficit: -598.06

    Heh. My Wii balance board consistently weighs me about 10 pounds heavier than my sis-in-law's bathroom scale does. However, the Wii, sadly, is exactly in tune with the fancy-dancy Tanita scale at the gym, so I can't blame the balance board. :)

    Of course, if it jumps 2 pounds in a day, I *would* be suspicious. Maybe it was on an uneven surface? I've found that tends to throw off a normal scale, maybe it's the same with the board?

    Even if it's "real", I suspect it won't last ... you're way too active to keep on that kind of sudden gain! :)

    I've heard that the Wii weigher is not very accurate, but I've never tried it myself.
