I got my compression tights on and tried my IT Band wrap for the first time last night. I began my Nike Training workout to warm up before hopping on the bike.
I was able to do the bike trainer workout for about 40 minutes before my knee was bugging me so much I called it quits. I have no way of tracking the mileage I do on the bike trainer currently but if I cycle about 10 miles an hour, my 40 minute workouts are probably about 7 or 8 miles total. In three weeks I’ve done about 24 miles so far.
Calories Burned: 539
After my workout I fixed myself dinner. Michael had leftover Curried Cauliflower Soup (it’s much better as a leftover) and I made an amazing salmon for dinner!
Thank you all for the great comments and insight on yesterday’s post! It was a very thought-provoking discussion and I liked reading the differing opinions. A common thought was maybe just eating HALF of the calories I burn working out. I think that’s a good place to start. So last night I did not eat all the calories I burned. Even having a glass of wine and dessert I had 350 calories left for the day. I think it’s a good start.
The trick with eating ice cream is to use a really small bowl so you don’t overeat. It also makes it look like you’re getting more than you really are. 🙂
I had two scoops of ice cream and debated with myself about the 7 pounds. Do I really want to sacrifice things like ice cream and wine from my life for 7 pounds? I workout enough to maintain my weight but restricting my diet drastically isn’t really something I want to do right now. The fact that I even have to DEBATE is my answer. Why? Because when I was 250 and made the choice to lose 100 pounds there was no debate. I was determined to lose the weight and there was no wavering.
My knee bugged me A LOT last night. 🙁 I iced and I tried some Icy Hot on my leg as a desperate measure. Fat Kitty seemed to LOVE the Icy Hot.
