Alright folks, as promised, here is the daily update for Dec. 6th. :)
Today was kind of a slow day. I woke up and it was snowing out, which was pretty exciting. I decided to go out and run a few errands, so I did some shopping for about an hour. Then, I had rehearsal for Chicago. I'd say I danced for about 2 hours (there were some parts where I wasn't dancing because it was a men's only song, etc, etc.).
After rehearsal tonight, I went to the gym and ran for 40min. I managed to do 2.5 miles, which isn't half bad considering I haven't run in 2 weeks.
To tally everything up, calorie wise, I burned:
Walking for 60min = 200 calories
Dancing for 120min = 1208 calories
Running 15min/mile for 40min = 240 calories
A grand total of (insert drum roll here): 1648 calories burned!!!
Today I ate a half serving of lobster ravioli, a roast beef sandwich on whole wheat bread, and a half serving of pollo a la crema. Not a very healthy day food wise, but it happens. That just means I will have to be more careful over the next few weeks.
Lobster Ravioli is about 600 calories, but a half serving is around 300 calories.
Pollo a la Crema is about 400 calories, but I only ate half which is 200 calories.
A roast beef sandwich on whole wheat runs about 310 calories.
I had 2 glasses of 1% milk, so that adds 220 calories.
And 7 glasses of water, which is 0 calories. (YAY!)
My grand total for today is : close to 1030 calories.
Although I ate some high calorie foods, I didn't eat the entire portions (thankfully) otherwise, I would have been WAY over my 1400 calories a day. As it is, I'm actually pretty under my calories, which also isn't good. I need to work on balancing out my calories so that I'm eating the right amount my body needs in order to keep my metabolism from slowing down. I also need to eat fewer carbs and more protein rich foods (plus fruits and veggies, which were severely lacking from today's menu).
It looks like I burned off more calories than I consumed today. Interesting.
