June 16th Sun, Swimming & Sunburn!



Weekend! Woo, Finally! It was nice to not have to deal with rush hour traffic today! I ended up lifeguarding (weekend job during the summer) today for the morning shift. I made a promise to myself that I would pack some healthy food to eat and carry my water bottle around like a crucifix because it was going to be a hot one! I made sure to put sunscreen on my shoulders and some on my arms because I know I burn easily however I failed to realize that when I got out of the water from swimming and cooling off that some had washed away. So I’m left with splotchy sunburn all over!!

I have it on my thighs, back of my neck, and my face. Lookin like a hot pig or a lobster, whichever visualization you prefer. I did manage to go swimming around the pool during the rest periods and do some lap swimming as well! Definitely  a great workout!

I didn’t eat a huge amount during the day, but I did go to Chipotle for dinner and out for a few drinks as well, so I had my cake and ate it too! I was also craving a shamrock shake from McDonalds because (as sad as this is) we were sitting outside at Chipotle eating and there was a sign on the McDonalds across the street that said try a shamrock shake and I LOVED them around St.Patricks Day, I was practically drooling even though I had just ingested over 1,000 calories and then I took out my iPhone and googled how many calories are in a shamrock shake… HOLY SH*T! A small shamrock shake has over 580-600 calories. WOOF! Definitely did not get one! Go me! Hah..

Body Update: Feeling significantly less sharp pain today which is surprising! I was expecting to have a bit more pain from working all weekend long, but it does seem to be getting a bit better. Woo-hoo!


AyyyeeYYoooo Switch uppp!!! Yeah, you heard it right. Finally started swimming this weekend! So lucky to be at the pool and on breaks or when I’m done with my shift I can go and swim around the pool and swim laps for however short or long.


I swam for 12 minutes doing full laps in the pool, alternating freestyle and breaststroke. Since I’m not a particularly proficient swimmer, I get more of a workout since my form is not streamlined per say so I have more resistance from the water. Also, alternating between each style allows me to get a bit of recovery or catch my breath slowing down the pace instead of just stopping completely.


According to my Calorie Counter App I burned over 3,361 calories and consumed 1,852 for the day. Breakfast was Honey Clusters Cereal with Milk, some orange juice, and an english muffin with butter. I had a snack of leftover couscous and fresh cut kernel corn. Lunch was chipotle!! Yikes! I had a burrito, steak, rice, black beans, mild salsa, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, and guacamole. I drank a ton of water all day to help smooth over me getting that calorie and salt overload. I didn’t necessarily eat any dinner, I just went out for drinks, but I DID manage to avoid binge eating after all that drinking. Proud of myself for not hitting up taco bell!
