After breakfast and lunch, my calories consumed are 456. That leaves me with 794 for the rest of the day! I'm going to try not to snack too much today so I can have a bigger calorie deficit to make up for going over a little the past 2 days.
Also, I have burned 1304 calories since midnight!! Yay!!! I've been trying to get up from my desk as much as possible today since sitting on my butt does not burn very many calories - I am alllll about running errands all over campus today!
Have I mentioned that I LOVE my Bodybugg???? I know I have - just thought I would say it again. I love seeing my progress through the day. It keeps me motivated to keep going and makes me aware of exactly what my body is doing. Another great feature the Bodybugg has is a "Step Count." It has a sort-of, built in pedometer. Right now, my daily step goal is set at 10,000 per day. I googled the distance that 10,000 steps equals and it's roughly 5 miles!!! I try my best to reach it everyday...I would say that so far, I hit it about 50% of the time and come pretty close the rest of the time (7500-8500 steps/day).
I've decided that I am going to try my best to NOT get on the scale every morning. In the past, I have always thought of the scale as a motivator...when the numbers went down it kept me going; but, it also can be discouraging. I know that your body can fluctuate daily by a few pounds, but when I'm trying to lose weight, it's hard to see it go up...even if it is just water weight so, I am going to weigh-in once a week. Besides, I would much rather see 3 or 4 lbs lost at one weigh-in, rather than see -.3lbs, -.7lbs., etc....every morning. :)
