Wednesday I went on a hike after work with my daughter. For the first time in years I actually jogged!! We jogged intervals the last half of our hike. It was on trails which I think made it easier for me. On a long asphalt trail I can see further and my mind begins calculating the distance and all the other awful things, but on a trail I have to concentrate on just the 2 feet in front of me the whole time. My recovery was quick as well. I was totally redfaced at the end and was getting the looks from everyone at the base of the resort, but I did something I haven't tried to do in years, I jogged and it felt great!!
I ate over 1700 calories which is 200 more than I want to eat each day, but I have to take in account that I just didn't have any good food in the house. My cupboards have been extremely bare this week. Grocery day is today, so hopefully next weeks eating will be better. I was completely vegan on Wednesday though.
Break down for the past 3 days:
Total calories eaten: 4903
Total calories burned: 804
Total burned: 5754
My goal is to have a total differential for the week of -3500 so I can lose at least 1 pound. I have a lot of working out to do these next 4 days.
