Intervals and Meatless Monday. February 15th Food and Exercise Journal

by Alison on February 15, 2010

Today I decided to do some interval training on the treadmill and I really got my heartrate up there a few times.  Does anyone else find that as you get more fit you burn less calories and that’s frustrating? 😛 Yes, fitness is great but I want that calorie burn!  I did 30 minutes on the treadmill followed by level one of 30 day shred.  I learned my lesson and ate breakfast before my workout.  I had greek yogurt sweetened with some maple syrup and granola.  For lunch I had hot and sour soup and an asian pear.  For dinner I made a delicous Veggie and Bean Chipotle Chili in the slow cooker.  This is the second recipe I have made out of Slow Cook It! The new WeightWatchers cookbooks and both have been a hit.  I love the slow cooker its so easy to just set it and forget it.  Tonight’s recipe was a hit with both Ben and I.  I made some adjustments up front but from there it needs no other adjustments, just yummy and thick and HUGE filling portions

Yeah, it totally bums me out that I don’t burn nearly as many calories during each workout….but I just compensate buy pushing extra hard! Ugh…that’s tiring, though.

Great job today!

I do too but eventually I won’t be able to, I’ll have to live with a smaller calorie burn or workout 3+ hours a day…
