I have decided that my horribly inaccurate scale is not a good point of reference that I'm getting anywhere. From tomorrow morning on, once a week I will take my measurements of every possible body part I can wrap a tape measure around.
This weekend was fabulous on my confidence. Saturday I spent the entire day doing laundry and cleaning (which was a workout in itself). I only ate 2 pieces of salmon sashimi and 2 pieces of tuna. I figured I hadn't had protein or any natural Omega-3s in a while and for dinner I shared a salad with D. I put on a really adorable dress and asked my friend S for her opinion on it (she's my ana-buddy). She said she loved it and it made me look really thin. So it was a bit of a confidence booster.
So yesterday, I did a Bikram hot yoga class (fantastic btw) with my friend T. When we were done, we showered and got changed and went for a walk. We walked around the city for over 4 hours and we went shopping as well. I found my outfit for my engagement photo shoot and I went down a size at the store. BOOM! Another confidence booster. As we were walking around, I was talking with T about how I was happy that things were starting to look good on me again and she tolde me I was having a really good body day. I said to her, really? She responded by saying, "well not just a good body day but you're overall thinner." Can you believe it?? I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but T is my best friend and she is a total nutrition and gym buff and is currently training to compete in a figure competition. I am secretly
After our day long excursion, we went back to her place and we wondered exactly how many calories we had burned from the yoga class and the walking. I didn't believe it when I saw but...drum roll please....
958 cals for 90 minutes of Bikram hot yoga
1143 cals for 4.5 hours of walking at a moderate pace (3 mph)
which is a total of...2,101 calories burned yesterday apart from my BMR (1486)
Yesterday was also a "high" day. (I zig zag my calories where my high days are on the weekends) I had 1000 calories. From exercise alone, I had a 1,101 cal deficiency but add my BMR and it becomes 1,587. So I lost almost half a pound from yesterday! but my scale showed that I gained...so it's official the scale goes out to the curb tomorrow morning with the rest of the trash.
