I been doing some researching this week that I will eventually share with all of you. Things like, "What are the target heart zones?" "Burning Fat vs. Burning Muscle?" "Calorie Eating" etc. So, if there is anything that you guys have questions on - just ask me and I'll do a little research!
I want to start putting up more informative information rather than just "my" progress.
But speaking of progress... how did you guys do this week? I decided to really keep track of my calories in and calories out just to see where I'm at each day. Here is what it looked like:
*Keep in mind that BMR calculated to be 1393 (this is what my body burns without be doing anything).
Monday: Interval Cardio training mixed with free weights (Burned 700 calories). Daily calorie intake was 1375
Tuesday: 1 hr aerobics step class with weight training (Burned 650 Calories). Daily calorie intake was 1435
Wednesday: 1 hr cycling class (Burned 950 calories). Daily calorie intake was 1415
Thursday: 1 hr cycling class (Burned 1000 calories). Daily calorie intake was 1500.
Friday: 1 hr aerobics and weight training session (Burned 850 calories).
As of this morning I still weighed my usual 132 lbs. I know that I'm being too hard on my body. Being a woman my menstrual cycle is usually right on track, but this month it arrived a week early, and February was a short month. With this happening I know that I'm being to hard on myself. I'm trying to rethink how I'm going to workout to get "fit" in a "healthy" way without thinking that I have to push myself to burn more calories... because honestly, that's just not working for me!
Let me know how you all did this week. Some of you are being VERY quite and I would love to hear from you. And don't forget to ask me questions! Remember that just because something doesn't work for me doesn't mean that it won't work for you!
