Exercise- 160 burned (walking 3.5 mph for 32 min)
So I really did have plenty to eat yesterday. One of the things this diary is helping me on is eating "mindfully". I don't know if any of you have this problem, but I will grab a chip or a cracker and just pop it in my mouth without even thinking about it. And you know that joke, " the calories don't count if you did not put the food on a plate."? Well... of course I don't believe that, but I ACT like I do!! Like yesterday when I went to Sam's..... And the venders were there giving samples. You could quickly eat 300 calories by visiting each station. I stayed away from them. And I had a meeting last night, and there were so many delicious snack desserts that people brought. I stayed away!! And then temptation won, and I had one small brownie. The best brownie in the whole wide world!! But how long did that pleasure last? Grrr.... I should have said in my head my PUSH goal over and over and I probably could have abstained. Well, I won't beat myself up too much. But I will learn from it!
And yesterday I did manage to go walking for 32 minutes and get in around 2 miles. My Nike sensor is wrong so it shows I walk faster and get more mileage than I really do. I have repeatedly try to get it accurate, but it is either showing me walking at 15.22 mph or 22.15 mph (something like that), so I just gave up. I know my pace is around 17 mph. And I was more interested in time than mileage. So that cancelled out 160 calories. I could have had 1560 yesterday. I so hope I can continue this blogging because it makes me so acountable. I plan to keep going forward!!
