I know I haven’t been blogging 100% on time for the past two and a bit weeks but I can’t quite believe I’m still at it! It really is showing my motivation this time round to change my life and so far, it seems to be working.
Today I am getting back into my exercise regime. I am going to try and do exercise on three different days and hopefully burn 400 calories ish each time. Today I burnt 459 calories doing exercise which I am very happy with! Nearly burnt off the Indian takeaway I had yesterday. I thought I would let you know that as well as this I will be walking 2 miles most days to university lectures but I will not also count this in myfitnesspal or my daily updates as I often forget. I am being active every day though whether that is intense exercise or just walking a few miles.
Here are two pictures showing what I burnt doing Just Dance 4 and on the treadmill. However, I don’t go by the calories burnt on the treadmill as they are based solely on time and not on pace. So I looked online and they said I burnt 249 doing the treadmill- jogging and walking intervals with a total of 15 minutes running at 8km/h.
And here is my food intake:
I had a pretty good day today!
Breakfast: Nectarine 70kcal, 1 Sea Salt Cracker 24kcal.
Lunch: Fruit cake 280kcal (I wasn’t hungry after exercising).
Tea: *Stuffed pepper* pepper 30kcal, feta cheese low fat 120kcal, baked beans 140kcal, onion 45kcal, cherry tomato 16kcal, sweetcorn 34kcal.
Dessert: peach yogurt 100kcal.
Snacks: 2x green teas 2kcal, diet lemonade 2kcal, club chocolate bar 118kcal.
So my overall input today was 983-459= 524kcal!
I am absolutely delighted by this because even without the exercise it was a good day! I’m back at uni and back on track. I think this proves that I really do need to exercise everyday in order to eat less because it really takes me appetite away! I will try and find the swimming pool tomorrow (15.09.14).
