Facing Fear (17): OK is OK
Saturday, February 18, 2012
My current calorie burning goal is set to 3,000 per week. It's Saturday and I'm at 2,745 calories. It will be easy for me to burn the 255 calories I need to make my weekly goal.
I caught myself in a very strange thought pattern this morning, though. I was thinking that I would be lazy if I only burned the 255 calories that I need. I was thinking that I needed to do an hour of Zumba (~450 calls), run on my medium route (~375 calls), or hike for a couple of hours (~600 calls).
I could do those things, but I'm still doing just fine if I make my goal and do something that "only" burns 255 calories. I don't need to berate myself for not constantly pushing boundaries. It's OK for me to be proud of myself for meeting my goals!
