Do as I say.....

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Before I left for Kelowna on Friday I was assigned a new bus with the warning, "it had small creatures living in it for a bit." It turns out, it was birds. (I was secretly scared it was mice) Anyway, to make a story short and simple, I don't actually know how the family of birds got into my bus but I do know that it has made me never, EVER, want to own another bird. EVER! Two and a quarter hours later, I have scrubbed every seat on that bus TWICE, swept the floor, installed the car seat for Emily and put things where I want them to go. (that's the quarter of the hour) After that, I pre-tripped it with the intention of taking a little tour around the parking lot. Hey guess what?! The #$@%*&^% thing wouldn't start. I called the after-hours mechanic and he said that, if he couldn't get a hold of the regular guy, he'd come look at it. I told him I was cold, angry and going home. I still had to eat supper, unpack, map out my route (in words) for tomorrow and TRY to relax.
I think I'm just about there.


Range 1670-2020
Calories Eaten 2073
BMR* 1,581
Exercise 472
Total Burned 2053
Differential 20

So let's see, my differentials so far have been: Friday 607 + Saturday 408 + Sunday 1132 + Monday 20. That totals to 2167. That's 62% of a pound. I wasn't planning on running tomorrow but I'm thinking I don't have a choice if I don't want to gain on Wednesday. Anyone know any good exercises to burn 2167 calories FAST?! EEP!!
(definitely a do as I say, not as I do weekend)

    I actually set, and meet, a lot of my goals. I'd say at least 85% of them. This was just a vacation from everything wrapped around a half marathon. Needless to say, I'm home now and back on track.
