While I am not normally a numbers person, there have been some numbers I’ve been paying plenty of attention to lately. This whole trying to lose weight thing has been rough. As long as I keep track of the number of calories I consume, as well as the number of calories I exert, I can stay focused.
My focus on those numbers has been a little lackluster as of late. But, today. Today I regained some focus. Sorg and I went to the gym this morning. Before we headed out, I entered my morning calorie intake. While I had eaten more than I should have (there were some leftover Oreos from the wedding cake samples yesterday) my calorie intake wasn’t that bad.
With that knowledge in hand, I was able to work harder at the gym. And, work harder I certainly did. 30 minutes on the cross trainer for a total of 326 calories, and 1 hour on the treadmill on maximum “hill” setting for a total of 800 calories meant my workout was worth 1126 calories to offset those Oreos!
My hope is that I can keep on track and manage those numbers to assist in lowering another number as summer approaches.
