So another week has passed and I think I have done pretty well. I tried Zumba for the first time this week. It was fun but I felt terribly uncoordinated. I just can't seem to shake my booty like those ladies do. :) Although I was not alone in that respect, so that made me feel better. I look forward to going back. Just need to work it into the schedule.
As far as other exercise goes, I exercised every day. I did The Shred DVD Mon-Thurs, and on Wednesday and Thursday I decided to do both level 1 and level 2. Ouch! It was killer! But I'm not burning enough calories just doing level 1. I need to kick it up a notch. Today I shoveled/swept snow then did some Wii Fit, which I'm counting as my exercise. I burned over 500 calories in an hour, which isn't as good as running, but it still counts!
Speaking of running, I can't wait until the weather is a little more cooperative and I can try running again. I'm starting to miss it!
This week I also started using My Fitness Pal again. It really helps to see how many calories I'm consuming. I already know how many calories I burn since I wear my heart rate monitor when I exercise, but I hadn't kept very good track of my eating. Having to record it really makes me think about what I'm eating. I'm also still not eating sweets. In fact, I threw away some Tootsie Rolls today. Ugh, it pains me to write that. :)
I weigh myself on Sundays now, so I don't have a weight update. It was up this past week. Not sure why that would be since I've been exercising more and eating less. Oh well, weight fluctuates. Hoping it is down this week. Either way, I feel better. The headaches are less frequent. I think they were caused by my body's reliance on sugar/sweets. Hoping they go away completely soon.
Since the kids got their report cards today, I decided I'd give myself a report card. This week I would give myself a B-. Pretty good but definitely room to improve.
