Shedding My Pirate Booty Week Forty-Three

This was my first week back to "normal" after a vacation. It was a bit tougher than I thought it would be to jump right back in to it all. I have gotten out of the habit of cooking, and eating out all the time is never a good plan when you want to lose weight. It was definitely an improvement over vacation though, thank goodness!

Week Forty-Three Results: 

Calories Burned Exercising: 1885
Net Calories Consumed: 9900/9450
Weight Lost:  -2.5 lbs,  -62 lbs total
Current Weight:  166 lbs

I nearly lost all my vacation weight this week, just a half pound shy. If I hadn't have eaten some yummy take out mid week and had another day at the county fair, I'm sure I would've shed more weight. 

The county fair is full of fun, but it's also full of food.
Riding ATVs at the fair.

I am glad to see my exercise calories went up too. Last week was just sad. I was a bit rusty at on the treadmill, but I still got in a run. Just being back at work has helped get my activity level back up. However, I only hit my 10,000 step goal once this week.

I'm setting some goals to keep me heading the right directions.

  • Run twice
  • Hit 10,000 steps at least 5 days
  • Burn over 2000 calories exercising
  • Stay under my weekly calorie goal 
  • Exercise at home 
I'm starting with these basic goals and we'll see where that takes me. See you next week.
