Fitness Friday

This week I've made a concerted effort to eat healthy. In addition to eating healthy, I'm eating often. I've noticed that eating many small meals throughout the day must really be jump-starting my metabolism because I am hungry all the damn time, but that's what I want. If I'm eating often and getting hungry, it means my body is using this food efficiently.

While the things I've been eating were healthy, I really wasn't sure how my calorie intake was looking. I hate counting calories. It works, yes, but it's so tedious and I get sick of doing it and then I stop and start eating crap again. My goal is to make eating healthily and smartly a habit and get it to the point where it doesn't take so much thought. With that said, I did think it was probably a good idea to look back on a couple days and figure out how many calories I consumed just to check that I was on the right track. I ended up at around 1400 calories a day, which is a great number for me to see results with.

Since Friday I've put in 2.5 hours of Spin and 2 hours of Pilates. (I have yet to go to today's hour-long Pilates class, which would make it a total of 3 hours for the week.) Unfortunately, due to my needing to wait and see when my mom's surgery will be scheduled, I can't renew my contract with the Pilates studio which happens to end tomorrow. Because of this, I will probably grab a guest pass to LA Fitness where Jamie has a membership and see how I like their Spin classes. I'll update you on that next week.

Here's my progress this week:

Hey, look, eating healthy really works, man! I haven't done any more exercise this week than I have during the past two months, the only change was my diet and I saw a loss of 2 pounds and 2 inches. I am really happy with that and am motivated to do just as well next week.
