Smile 100% to Easter Challenge

I've done 100% challenges on other threads, and they really work quite well. I'm not talking about getting on the scale (since it moves so slowly the closer you are to goal), just eating healthy and exercising daily. I want to be 100% in mindful eating and exercising to Easter. 61 days till Easter. This is day 1 of the 61 days. Anyone want to join me?

Yesterday:

1,500 calories consumed, no junk food
1,200 expended through exercise (step aerobics with weights, weight lifting, and ab exercises)

I always estimate low on exercise calories. Better to be under than over.

I only work out three days a week, so today is an off day for me.

2,500 healthy calories yesterday to make up for my exercise. (I'm not looking to lose any more weight at this time.)

Normally I would go to the gym today, but I have to work very late, so it will be tomorrow instead. I go three times a week, but sometimes I have to shuffle the days a bit.

Day 4 here! Yesterday I had 1370 cals & exercised for 55 minutes. Wow, now it's officially less than two months till Easter! The months are flying by. Let's stay strong over the weekend!

Hi Lisa! Glad you could join us. I think I better start doing some strength training, too.

PP, that is so awesome that you know how to handle your exercise routine and calorie count! I usually do the same old thing, which is probably why it's taking so long to get to goal.

Day 6...?
i saw the last post on 2-10-12, so i'm assuming today is day 6.

since my valentines challenge was a bust, i'm excited for the easter one (which i KNOW i'll do good on!)

i'll just express how i'm feeling each day.

today: determined
since i have work, then loads of studying, today won't be very interesting. haha.
but i do feel determined to stay on plan and rock this challenge!

Today is day 7 of being 100% to Easter. Feeling great! On Sat., I had 1420 cals. & walked for 50 minutes. On Sun, I had 1480 cals & walked for 50 min. I want to do better today, since it's Monday. (I allow myself a litte more cals and gentle exercise on weekends.)

Bella, how's the weather in Palermo?
