that's more like it

1. Walk at least 10,000 steps a day.  10,039 steps, wahoo!  It definitely helped that I had a class over at the hospital in the middle of the day so I had to walk more then usual.  And we ran almost a mile during boot camp!  Then Nicole, Lou & Jack offered to walk to Rita's & ShopRite with me which got put me over.  1 day accomplished.
2. Workout at least 5 times.  As stated above, I went to boot camp!  It's so much easier to get my butt over there when I know Mandy is waiting.  Our normal instructor (Bryan) is out for the week so Diane (the step instructor) took over, she didn't yell quite as much but definitely made a run a lot more.  1 workout complete.

3. Eat out less then 5 times.  I had lunch in the cafeteria with Thea before our class.  While I could have just brought my bagged lunch to the hospital I decided the 420 calories of chef salad wrap was worth it!  1 meal out.
4. Have a total burn of at least 3500 calories.  I really tried to keep it under control and ended up with a 669 calorie burn for the day.  I just tried to remember my old way of thinking, when I'm out of calories I'm done eating...  Too bad Nicole had to twist my arm into that red velvet cream ice or I totally would have kept it at 1200 for the day.  578 total burn for the week.


  1. Red Velvet?? I haven't been to Rita's yet this year!

    And that sounds like a pretty good day to me! What do you have your MFP set to? Is it calculating it for you or do you have it set to maintenance and you decide how much you want to leave? I have it set to lose 1lb a week (i.e. 500 calorie differential so when I'm at 0, I'm really at -500) and then I have a 500 calorie wiggle room. I was just curious how you were using it!

  2. Hmmm...that's a good question. Let me look...ok...it's set up on RECOMMENDED to lose 1 pound a week. Does that mean at 0 I'm really at -500? Like yesterday I really burned 1169? If it does, that is awesome!
