Finally it’s Friday! I feel like this week has dragged by. For some reason, my appetite was insatiable today. I over consumed calorie wise BIG time, but according to calculations, I should be consuming roughly 2,400 calories a day to maintain my weight. I did workout today and everything I had to eat was healthy so I’m not TOO worried. I know I can’t count calories for the rest of my life, nor do I want to be a calorie counter. Right now, it helps me hit my goals, stay motivated and be conscious of what I am putting into my body. I am bound to go over on days, but as long as they are healthy calories (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins) and not calories from consuming 10 cheeseburgers and 5 cokes, then I’m not going to stress over it.
I went to the gym tonight with Annie where we ran and did triceps and chest. After the gym I went swimming and it was my last night of swimming lessons. I was a bit sad, but I wasn’t enjoying it these past 8 weeks as much as I did before. I’m taking the summer off and maybe I will start back up in the fall. We shall see. It was a great experience, however, and I am SO happy that I finally learned how to swim! Now I just need to stick with it in my free time so I don’t lose what I learned! I’ll make a goal to keep going at least once a week.
