Day 29

3 days cheat freeCalories eaten yesterday: 1719
Calories burned: 2106
Carbs: 42g (yippee!)
Fat: 88g (yippee!)
Deficit: 387 calories

I've decided to track my deficit/overage on calories. That should give me a better idea of what I'm eating vs. what I'm burning off (or not). The calories eaten/burned graph on FitDay doesn't give exact numbers. I just know I should be losing because the calories burned side of the graph is always a little higher, even counting those "off" days when I just plug in 3000 calories as an estimate. By the time it's averaged out, the 3000 calorie days end up not mattering. I just can't eat that way every day, lol!

My butt hurts today! After the leg workout I did yesterday, my butt is killing me. I still made it to the gym and did arms and core, followed by 30 minutes on the crossramp elliptical (hard when your butt hurts), and 20 walking on the treadmill.

I figured out why my arm/core workout on Sunday was so hard. It wasn't the extra water weight. It was the 12 minute, 1 mile run (5 mph) that I did first. That sort of thing tires me out and makes my weight workout harder. That's why I try to do weights first and cardio second - so I can give the weights my all.

My shoulders have been hurting and I am wondering about having the opposite problem than before - overworking my shoulders to the detriment of my pecs. So I decided to add back in my bench press on the Smith machine, while continuing with the compound row (because it's so fun!).

Walked over 10,000 steps yesterday, counting my gym time.

=-) Keep up your good work. Pretty soon though, your shadow will have to go on a diet to keep up with you. When your shadow starts complaining that you look better and thinner, well, that should be enough!=-)
