...is the number of calories I burned this morning! Oh ya baby! Even if I don't make it to my goal weight by next Thursday (which I won't unless a miracle happens)--I know it's not from being lazy. I've been working my booty off during my workouts these past couple of weeks. I think the most calories I've ever burned in one work out was 937 and that was the day I did 3 straight hours of Zumba. Today I burned 804 in 2 hours...so I'd consider that quite an accomplishment. I don't know why my body is holding onto this extra weight but whatever. All I can do is my best. I'm sure if I got super-strict with my diet (calorie intake) I'd see some better results...but it's just not. gonna. happen. My ginormous family is coming into town starting tonight and we'll be eating non-stop. My only salvation is that I am going to try to surround myself with healthy choices so I (hopefully) don't succumb to the pressure and eat all the JUNK that everyone else will be eating. Nothing against anyone in my family, I love them all...but they are NOT healthy eaters. I mean...not even close. It's funny because when I know everyone is coming to town, my grocery cart looks entirely different than normal. I have all different varieties of soda, chips, cookies, unhealthy lunch meats, white bread....etc. But hey, that's what they like and it's cheap. I figure there is no sense in feeding them all my expensive healthy stuff when they'd rather have the junk anyway, right? Although I do feel bad for the couple of family members who look to me as an example (for healthy eating) and see my house full of all this stuff. Hopefully they'll watch what I actually EAT and not just what I set out for everyone else to eat.
Okay...off to clean house...got lots of sheets to wash before all my beds are occupied!
Oh and by the way..whatever that "bug" was I had on Tuesday is completely gone now (with the exception of the nasty cough) but other than that, I feel great! YAY! I SOOOOO do NOT have time to be sick! :o)
