I am doing a happy dance this morning!
I decided I needed to track calories and exercise so I signed up for MyFitnessPal and I must say that it is the best online tool that I personally have used, ever. I love it; you can customize it, they have a community forum and it is just plain easy to navigate. If any of you readers are a member of MyFitnessPal I would love to friend you on there, send me your user name if you are.
I did struggle through the weekend but like I said previously, I did make it out without much damage.
My husband is a GREAT support for me, he seems to say just the right thing and just when I need to hear it too.
My eating has been at or below my calorie range, which is 1470, if I do not exercise. If I do exercise I try to eat those calories because I am still nursing my little one and do not want my milk supply to drop for her.
I also have exercised everyday since Sunday. Here is the break down.....
Sunday~ 7.4km run/walk....this was hard for me because it has been so long since I have run at all and last fall since I ran that distance, but I made it.
Monday~ Biggest Loser Last Chance Workout dvd
Tuesday~ 6 Week Six Pack Level 1
Wednesday~ 4 Mile Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds
Total of 1640 calories burned with exercise since my last weigh in.
Today will probably be a rest day because I will have extra children here all day, possible I will go for a bike ride after my husband gets home (if it is still light out).
Down 4.5lbs this week.................here is the happy dance!
I know the first week is always a bigger loss because the body is riding itself of waste that it has accumulated but I am determined to stay on this roll of healthy living again!!!!
I have had so much energy and I love that feeling, I do not want to give that up for anything.
