There’s a dinner party at home today so I kinda expected that I’ll be enjoying food more than it’s “required”.
My cooking exercise didn’t save me today from a negative remaining calories.
So, for today here are my metrics:
June 29, 2017
Goal: 1200 calories
-Food: 1426 calories
+Exercise: 151 calories
=Remaining: -75 calories
I did a lot of cooking today (still with lots of shrimps!), so I logged in an hour of cooking as exercise, equivalent to 125 calories. Plus some 10 minutes of light cleaning (26 calories).
At this point, I visualize the desired result of this weight loss project:
I weigh 125 pounds.
My BMI is normal.
I feel lighter.
I move faster.
I have normal cholesterol levels.
I need to refocus my attention to the very reason why I am doing this daily blog. It’s all about feeling good about myself and my body. I’m happy now that I am able to move about, but I will be happier knowing my risk for cardiovascular diseases is lower because I am not overweight.
The challenge for me now is to add more activities into my lifestyle. I challenge myself to make changes in the next 14 days, and really put in the effort to exercise more.
I’ll keep you posted.
Before I go, here’s the menu for the day:
Breakfast: coffee, gluten-free cornmeal muffin
Morning Snack: roasted almonds
Lunch: Brown rice, beef chili
Afternoon Snack: coffee, an apple
Dinner: Spicy Linguine Arrabbiata, Yang Chow Fried Rice, Sparkling Wine
I raise my glass of sparkling wine…cheers to life, love and good food! ❤
