I lost 0.8kg! I was stoked then read what some others lost & started feeling like I hadn't done enough. But then talked my self back around! I have been keeping under 1200 calories & My exercise calories burnt were 860 on Monday & 630 Tuesday so I know I was good! Still plenty of time to lose more. Plus now it makes it a nicely rounded 3kgs since I signed up!
I went for a run on the beach today & I got to my next running goal. It was only another 100m but now I can run 1.1km on the beach before stopping. I can run a bit further on the road. I walked for probably another 400m then ran another 400m. Walked the whole way back! 450 calories gone in that effort.
Then I met up with some other Mum's for our Wednesday Morning Walk. We walked along a 2km coastal bush track to the Port Arthur Historic site, we found a spot to sit for morning tea then a wander around before walking back. I was going to count this as incidental exercise so I didn't put my HRM on but I wished I had now. My just turned 4yo son decided he wasn't going to walk today so I put my back pack on my front & piggy backed him most of the way. I was a bit beetroot coloured when we got back!! (& I must have looked sooooo stylish with the backpack on my front!!)
Who else has a Big Red Flag day on the weekend?? My husband is a mad St Kilda supporter & his best mate is a mad Collingwood Supporter so we are going to their place for a party/bbq. I thought I would take a platter of vege sticks with some Tzaziki & Hommus Dip to cover any snacking, Then for the BBQ I might take a chicken breast or have a small steak. Then just eat normal salad. That should keep me within my calorie limit for the day.
