I did Kempo with Aaron and burned 459 calories.
Then last night I did a full hour on the elliptical for a burn or 631 calories. Total calories burned yesterday from exercise: 1090. Nice.
This morning when I stepped on the scale, I only lost .5 pound. My weight this morning was 161.0. It is a loss and I will take it.
BUT I know what went wrong yesterday and it was multiple things.
1. I didnt get my normal smoothie for breakfast to kick off the metabolism. And instead because I was stuck at the doctor, I had to eat what was in my purse which was dried cranberries. Dried fruit you would think would be good for you, but most of the time it has a LOT of sugar added to it. Not good for me.
2. When I got home I had lunch. And I finished off my left over sandwich from when I went out Thurs. Really yummy but again, with the bun and the guacamole, not the best thing. Plus I still had 2 hard boiled eggs, an english muffin with natural peanut butter and some baby carrots. Did I mention that I was hungry???
3. For dinner I had my missed smoothie from that morning. Nothing wrong with that. I finally had gotten to the store to get more spinach.
4. After I ran and took a shower, I had a glass of wine. It was the Berringer Red Moscato. Very tasty and a little sweet. I limited myself to only one glass. And I had a few kernals of popcorn. Aaron had popped it the night before with coconut oil and sea salt. Normally I could eat a whole bowl, but it didn't really sound good last night.
So these few things threw me off track yesterday. A loss is a loss though and I will take it. And I am back on track for today.
I had my smoothie, and I will have my normal lunch. English muffin with Natural PB, 2 hard boiled eggs, a handful of baby carrots with a wedge of laughing cow cheese.
Tonight I will be making spaghetti for the family with sausage sauce. For me, it will be some quinoa with sauteed spinach, tomatoes, garlic and onion.
And then after the boys go to bed, I will be hitting the elliptical again. No P90X scheduled for today. It is a rest day.
Now my next question and I would like readers to weigh in:
You all know if you have been following me, that I set my goal weight for 155. I am now 6 lbs away. My question to you is, in all of your various stages of weight loss, have you set multiple goal weights?
The reason I ask is this... When I get to 155, because it is only 6 lbs away, I know that I still have a lot of fat and flab on my legs, hips and stomach. That is where I hold most of my weight. I don't know if I will be able to get into the 140s or if I will look too skinny, but I am trying to decide if I should go for more weight off or not. I mean, if I keep losing weight, apparently it will mean my body isnt finished yet, but at that point do I reset a new goal?
Very exciting to think that if I stay on top of things, I could be to my goal weight in about 2 weeks. That is, if my elliptical keeps helping me burn like it has been!
