Weekly Weigh-In #151

Uggg, up again. I was really active this week. In addition to my hour of elliptical and regular Zumba classes, the little boys and I would head over to the church gym for an hour a day. They would play basketball and I'd practice some songs and steps while I supervised. But it's the eating ... can't out cardio the calories... yet controlling  both quality and quantity is a super struggle for me.

NUMBERS: Up 2.3 pounds :(  Average was up 1.94 (165.7). Average intake for the week was 2429. Average daily burn 2925. Crunching the numbers, I ended with a deficit of -1596. Average steps for the week was 24106. I didn't get in a weights session, 1008 active minutes, 84.63 miles. FOOD: Not a good week, I just kept eating. Didn't manage a day under 2000. FITNESS: The extra hour of Zumba several days this week did push numbers up. Four days over a 3000 burn (ala Fitbit), two days over 30k. I got in my hour of elliptical six days. Nine hours of Zumba, two sessions on the bike. FAMILY: The two teens were playing in a basketball tournament over the weekend. #3 had a very social week, with friends over at our home, and me running him elsewhere every other night. Here's a quick week recap ...

  • Friday (0610): Got in my hour of elliptical, and while I didn't hit a Zumba class, I did get in an hour practice on my own. Made gingersnaps ... ate gingersnaps.
  • Saturday (0611): Hour of elliptical, a session on the bike and mowed the front lawn. Overate.
  • Sunday (0612): Just one 20min session on the elliptical. 
  • Monday (0613): Motivated Monday! An hour of elliptical, Zumba with Southziders and another hour of practice, plus a session on the bike. Calories well under burn but still a little over goal.
  • Tuesday (0614): Three 20min sessions on the elliptical, I lead Marian's Zumba class, then got in my practice hour too. 
  • Wednesday (0615): Hour of elliptical, Zumba with MZL and then an hour of practice. Also some shopping and dinner prep steps. High calorie intake today though.
  • Thursday (0616): Hour of elliptical, Zumba with MountainView, then my practice hour (boy's basketball time). Not doing well with calorie intake this week.

  1. I try to put cardio calories all the time and it just doesn't work! Darn it!!!!

  2. I can so relate, Jen. I think you're doing a wonderful job, being a wife and busy mother, cooking, cleaning, baking, Zumba class! (I so want to try Zumba one day! Am I too old at 58?) I hear you on the food, I haven't made fantastic choices lately; my Fit Bit and I need to come to terms.
