Day 10 Results

My husband isn't feeling well, but he really wanted me to go to the gym so he took care of the kids while I went. He is the best! I couldn't do this without his support.

Today was a little rough, I wanted to eat a lot more than I should, I was internally whiny all day. I also really didn't feel like going to the gym, but I kicked butt at my run/walk today. I tried to run (translation: jog) for 1 minute of each song I listened to on my iPod.  I burned the most calories yet in my 50 minute workout (529) and finished a 5K at 48 minutes (3 minutes away from my WLorB end goal). Woohoo!

Here are my official stats (more for me than you). :)

-Calories: 1320 Calories (I've got to get back to my 1200 goal. I did so good last week, but not so much this week).

-Treadmill 54:05 (burned 529 calories, went 3.38 miles at av speed of 3.76 mph, average pace 15:56, heart rate 135).

How was your Wednesday?


  1. It was good! However, I think my future mother in law may be trying to throw me off track. She sent my boyfriend home with a silk chocolate cheese cake! (AND SHE KNOWS I'M ON A DIET!)

  2. Good for you! What a great hubby you have there. Mine is on board with the get me healthy thing too. My Wednesday was rough too...but I got the house cleaned and worked in some elliptical time.

  3. Well sounds like you did good...I ate more then I should have but then I had a migraine, so go figure!

    Take care


  4. I am so glad to hear you have a WONDERFUL support system in place! Try not to stress too much on your caloric intake, 1200 is the very lowest you should go, 1300 calories is quite reasonable!


  5. Vanessamae-Boo on that cheesecake! We had one sitting in our fridge for WAY too long. My husband finally finished it off and I breathed a sigh of relief.
    Jeannette-Glad your husband is supportive too, and proud of you for getting things done on a rough Wednesday.
    Joyce-Feel better lady!
    Maria-Thanks, I'm trying not to stress, but just don't want those calories creeping up and up, ya know?

  6. I am so proud of your husband! You have your own fan club!

    You did great Steph!

  7. I am so impressed by your running progress! You are doing so well. (my run is also a jog lol). I agree 1200 calories is very low. Going too low could def backfire on you-your body might revolt and watch out for crazy cravings if you deny your body too much. Your hubby gets am A+!

  8. Wow, I'm getting a lot of love on here! :) You rock babe, keep up the great work. xoxo

  9. Keep it up, Steph! What a great workout!

  10. I think you are doing so awesome! I just want to tell you that my experience with restricting my calories too much was that I stopped losing COMPLETELY. When I went back up a bit (about 150 calories a day) I started losing again immediately. While you DO want to "shock" your body into burning fat you don't want to put it into starvation mode. The best thing that I did was keeping track of how many of my calories were from carbs & how many were from protein. When I am getting my calories primarily from protein & good fats that is when I see the best results (on the scale & in my measurements AND in how I feel!).
    Keep up the great work! You ROCK!

  11. I think I asked this before, but I can't remember which post and I don't know if you responded! :o) How did you decide on 1200 calories?

    A friend of mine shared this with me, and I thought of you for some reason. I think you should watch it.
