My Scale has been Kidnapped!

Well, my roommate locked the scale up tonight. We're both dieting and agree that weighing everyday is not good for staying motivated and on track. I couldn't be trusted to not get on it, so it is now outside in the storage closet...hopefully I will not be soooo crazy that I go out there in the morning to pay it a visit. We've agreed that weigh-in day will be every Friday.

Today was a pretty good day. My body was feeling a little tired today, but I went to workout anyway. I did 30 mins on the AMT machine and then 50 mins on the elliptical. I kept a slower pace tonight, so my heart rate didn't get up as high as I wanted it too, but I'm proud of myself for going and pushing through the fatigue. I burned a little over 600 calories during my workout. All of my BodyBugg targets have been met today too...right now I'm at 3309 calories burned! One thing that I have learned from the BodyBugg is the calories burn benefit after a workout. My normal average calorie burn when I am not being active is around  2.2 - 2.5 calories per minute. During my workout my burn is usually anywhere between 8-12 calories per minute, depending on the intensity. Here's the really awesome part...for about an hour or two after my workout my burn stays between 4-6 calories per minute! That's at least twice as much as my normal burn! It's so cool to know what my body is doing and to know that I am still burning calories at a faster rate, long after my workout is done!

I thought it may be a good idea to start logging my food on here too, in case anyone is interested in what I'm eating to stay under 1200 calories per day...if I cheat, I promise I will put it on here too!
