I run for ice cream.

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

A few days ago, I was presented with a shirt that read "I run for ice cream". Tonight that's what I did. I ran 4 kms and burned 288 calories. Then I joined Richard and his family at the DQ for a butterscotch sundae. Truth be told, I still owe a 12 calorie burn to the calorie gods BUT I just did 49 pushups so I figure we're probably even.

The last two days haven't been where they should be nutritionally. I overdid the calories by 378 (average) per day. I'm right on target for meeting my burn goal tho'.

As for the goal that I set for myself. I got out of bed at 6:18 today. Today was close but I was SO tired. I should have seen the sleepless night coming when I had such a good day of sleep.... bummer.


Other goals for this week:
Monday - BodyPump - NOT DONE
Tuesday - Run 4 kms - DONE - 4.73 km in 30:26
Wednesday - 6 Hills
Thursday - Run 6 kms
Friday - BodyPump
Saturday - Awesome Abs
Sunday - Run 16 km

    It sounds fair to me....I didn't run yesterday and I totally over ate...big time...so I didn't earn any of it :(

    Lol tonight we are planning a 9-10k run so I'm hoping that will at least earn me some redemption this week.
