My Accountability - Update for 1/26/10

Wednesday, January 27, 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

Tuesday 1/26:
Strength & Tone class – 300 calories
Teach Dance Fusion – 650 calories
25 pushups

This was a KILLER day!
55 minutes of Strength & Tone - 611 calories burned - Killer Class! Today I am SORE! Sheesh! You'd think I'd be in better shape - LOL. Not that having an 18 pound body bar for squats & lunges, 10 pound weight for side lunges (with an overhead press) and doing curls with the 12 pounds had anything to do with it.

PLUS - we did 75 pushups! I think I counted 40 or 45 on my toes and the remainder, 30 or 35, with the knees down. Killed me!

62 Minutes of Dance Fusion - 775 Calories! Oye Vey!

Eating we terrible - forgot my lunch at home so I ate in the cafeteria. Had an Italian Melt but to try to counteract that I ordered the vegetables rather than the fries :) Dinner was 1 cheeseburger, uneaten by my daughter, and 2 chocolate truffles.

Calories: 1,733
Cardio: 1386
Minutes: 117
Deficit: -1501.66

Weight is down a bit today. Tracking both the Wii and the Scale - we'll see what happens with that. Not recording a weight until I know for sure what is going on.

Wednesday 1/27:
Teach Double Step class – 600 calories
