So I had my alarm set for 6 a.m. because I wanted to get Andrew's dinner done after I got back from the spa. I turned it off in my sleep. Now I went to bed at 10 p.m. last night, I was good, so you think I would be able to get up, but I guess my bod had other ideas! I got up at 11:30 instead and then had to get ready to go to my therapist. I was dismayed and felt badly that I let my baby down. He's eating peanut butter sandwiches today, but I'll make him a meal fit for a king tonight! I myself have only had two bananas and it's 5:05 p.m. But I got a great workout in the pool today! Yippee! This is what I did:
Walked one mile in the pool - Calories burned: 106.4 (I think it's more due to the water resistence, but they don't have water walking worked in with walking, only water jogging)
Treading water for 35 minutes - Calories burned: 560
Water jogging 10 minutes - Calories burned: 120
Total calories burned - 786.4
Goal for the week -2780
Total for the week -1552
I'm over halfway to my goal and it's just Tuesday!

I wish they had the calorie burning calculations to the strength training, but I'm happy enough I know I did really good today, the only problem is now I have no time to really Spark. I have to go and eat and fix meals which will take some time since I'm having to prepare both mine and my husbands. Then I plan on relaxing with my kitties and watching a program on tv...so it looks like on the days I go to the pool I'll have less time to visit with my groups. Of course if I can get my butt out of bed...lol
I know I'll be stiff and sore tomorrow, heck I am a little right now. The gym was cleaning the hot tub so I couldn't soak in it like I usually do, but I'm still going to try to go tomorrow and then again Friday, and do my weigh in before I jump in the pool. I'm going to try and do a whole hour of just treading water after I walk. I love seeing high burn numbers!
The aches, pains, sweat and grunts are SO worth it! Maybe I'll lose more than 3 pounds this week...maybe I'll lose 5! Wouldn't that be just the coolest???
