I did a PowerPump class yesterday and sweat like a pig. The class was 1.5 hours long and I picked up my stuff and left after about 75 minutes. I'm QUITE disappointed that none of that counted as vigorous activity! I'm one of the oldest in the class and one of the heaviest, so it seemed pretty dang vigorous to me! Apparently I've got to work harder to step it up. Later in the day I checked the display and noted I would not meet my step count so I did 2.25 miles on the treadmill.
Another interesting thing is that I was in bed for 7 hours, 45 minutes and I only slept 4.5 hours? That's not very good considering all the research done on adequate sleep being important for weight loss. I had a diet coke in the evening so that may be the culprit. I'll stop doing that to see if I don't sleep better.
On the whole I am pleased with the second day results. I understand that I can't keep up this activity pace in July when we are on vacation, or in August once school is back in session, but for now it IS possible and I'm hoping it gets me back into a weight-loss mode.
My mood is positive and upbeat.
