Ok, so I’m just going to start off by saying once again how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE BodyAttack! It seriously has to be one of the most intense and fun group exercise classes I’ve ever been to. This morning I decided to wear my heart rate monitor to see how many calories I actually burn during the 55 minute class – the result – 887 calories!
So, does burning this many calories by 10:30 in the morning cause everyone to eat like a horse for the rest of the day, or just me? No matter what I ate today, it just didn’t seem to be enough.
Breakfast – oatmeal pancake, oj
Snack – 1cup of grapes, 1/4 cup of mixed nuts
Lunch – 1 cup of butternut squash soup, 1/2 can of tuna, 3 riveta crackers, and a large glass of chocolate milk
Snack – 1 Kashi fruit and grain bar (chocolate covered with peanuts), a large glass of oj, banana
Snack – 1 hard boiled egg, 2 pieces of cheese
4km walk with kids in stroller
Dinner – 1 black bean and corn quesadilla, large glass of skim milk,
Snack – sweet chili rice chips – 2 servings, 2 large glasses of oj
And, it’s 10pm and I’m doing all I can to not eat and drink more! Seriously, this is crazy! I’d hate to see how many calories I actually consumed today! I don’t think the food is actually too bad, but the number of calories I drank today, well, that’s a different story. Definitely more than I burned at BodyAttack! I really need to work on drinking more water, that’s for sure!
Let’s hope tomorrow’s 4 mile run doesn’t cause a repeat of today’s pig-out fest!
Ok, time to follow up on de-clutter mission #2. This weeks project was to clean out the storage closet in our basement bathroom. It was mostly full of boxes and boxes of baby girl clothes, and since we just has a little boy, it’s time to pass them along. Apparently there was a bunch of other junk in there too!
So, I cleared out all of the baby clothes, washed them and sorted them into boxes by size.
Now, I just need to get them out of our house! As for the other junk, a few things to Goodwill and the rest is garbage.
Isn’t it Crazy…in only 10 days I’ve managed to clean up both my car and our storage closet, two things I’ve wanted to do for a while now, but never found the time. Accountability is sure a great motivator!
