Friday Fitness Overview

It’s baaaack! After the honeymoon I became a total blob and stopped working out. My lunch hours were spent in a restaurant eating and reading a book and my evenings were spent on the couch with my new hubby inhaling fresh baked chocolate chip cookies like they were going out of style.

I stayed in blissful ignorance until two weeks ago at a friend’s house when I weighed myself and saw I had gained nine pounds in the two months since the wedding. Well, I think her scale was off, because the gym scale the next day said I was 173 (not 177) but that is still five pounds more than the 168 I had ballooned to two winters ago. So in the past two years, I have put on 18 pounds!!! I blame my husband entirely. He has way too much a of a sweet tooth it’s hard for me to be good.

Thanks to MyFitnessPal app, I am recording my food intake and my exercise. In two weeks, I have already gone from 173 to 169. Now, I know that is pretty much all water weight, but a victory on the scale is still a victory.

Anyway- my current weight is 169 now and my goal weight is 150.

Friday- I was in SLC for my brothers graduation and while I did not get in a formal work out. We spent and about two hours or so walking; around campus at University of Utah and at a cool pioneer village. (291 cal)

Had to wear my little brother's shoes because all that walking in heels was impossible!

Saturday- Hiked to Fifth Water Hot Springs! And then when we cooled off in the hotel pool I did some aqua jogging for a good 15 minutes or so. (539 cal)

Approaching the hot springs and waterfall. There were a lot of people there that day

Sunday- Sat on my butt for 13 hours driving home. Ugh! NOT fun!

Monday- Yoga (128 cal) and a short 10 minute run with the puppy to the ball diamonds to watch a little league game (102 cal)

Tuesday- HIIT @ lunch (230 cal)

Wednesday- Zumba (452) and 18 rounds of golf (1012 cal- which seems high to me but is what find on several calorie calculators)

I just love being outside!

Thursday- Softball (385 cal)

We have a TON of girls on our team so there was a lot of sitting. Not to mention I struck out all four times I batted! I was SO frustrated!! I need to step this ball thing up and start really putting some practice hours in.

Total Calories Burned- 2,127

Darn! Not quite enough for a full pound, though I have taken off a pound in the last week. I guess I’m not taking into account the low-cal clean eating I have been sticking to as well. It’s been a good week! 🙂
