So far it's working well! Today was a better day swimming. I was able to swim hard and I didn't feel exhausted like I did last week. My HRM is picky. Sometimes it works great in the pool and other times it doesn't. Today it did well! I know I burned more than this because the HRM was giving me fits when I first got into the water. But it worked well for most of the time. So my 30 minute swim results were 182 calories burned.
Today was also a run day. I started week 2 day 1 today. 90 seconds of jogging with 2 minutes of walking. Let me tell you, this is really hard!! I did it tho. There were times when I felt like I was just walking fast but my heart rate was up. And I definitely got my sweat on! I did the 31 minutes of the C25K and followed it up with 10 minutes on the elliptical. 391 calories burned!!
So 573 calories for today! Was a good day!
Today's numbers were good:
My protein was a little low. I will work on this.
Tomorrow I am getting another fill. It will be my 4th. Currently I have about 6.25 cc's in my 10 cc band. We will see how much they give me tomorrow. I think I am close to the green zone. Almost. I am still able to eat about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of food at once.
I am going to talk to them about my hair loss too. The doctor said with 60 - 80 grams of protein a day I should not experience hair loss, but I think they lied. Typically I get right around 80 grams a day. I have been a little low the last week or so. Hopefully between the vitamins and the protein my hair will be OK. I know its only temporary and I am trying not to let it get to me. This too shall pass!
In other news, I have graduated from morbid obesity to just plain ole' obese! That's progress! Can't wait to graduate to overweight! :) Categories and stereotypes drive me nuts!
Tomorrow is Hump Day! We are that much closer to Friday! I love that! And it's a 3 day weekend!
Have a great day everyone!
