Lose weight, get more energy and eat healthy!
I've been tracking calories with the calorie counter, which usually keeps me within my 1200-1550/day range.
I drink 8 cups of water per day.
I try to bike to school at least 4 days/week, and even though it's not a long ride it's still 30 minutes of exercise per day that I do it.
I'm in my 20's, from the SF Bay Area, and I'm a bit of a science geek. In my spare time (ha!) I like playing the Wii, watching old episodes of Star Trek, and making crafty things like jewelry and origami.
I dunno. I know she acts that way EVERY time I talk to her on the subject, but I never seem to learn.
It was frustrating to me that she missed the entire point...because I wasn't saying "Eat the cookie". I just meant that if you really want a cookie, you need to figure out how to get yourself to a place where you can have it. Duh, emotional eating. Duh it's hard to have just one. But I don't think denying yourself cookies forever is going to solve the bigger problem. Cookies will always be there, and you have to figure out how you can be there too.
And to be told what overweight people think....I mean...uh...what? 1 year of a normal BMI doesn't erase over 20 not having one.
I also find it weird how she posts a food related status post almost every single day. I don't know...something feels forced there. I guess it's none of my business....I just have a really hard time watching it....
Well, I'm all moved in in the sense that all of my worldly posessions are in my new apartment, my DSL is finally connected (though slower than it was at the other apartment...I guess I'm further away from the dispatching place....or something....I'm going to have to upgrade packages if it's going to stay this slow...) and I finally bought groceries and am cooking food at home again.
I'm still living with boxes and sleeping on the floor. I got an IKEA bookcase and dresser (for dvds and cds, not clothes) and put those together last Sunday. I'm hoping to go futon shopping tomorrow as it's the first day off I've had in 3 weeks where I didn't have anything actually planned. After the futon is purchased I think I'll only need a couple more things. Now that I have some things unpacked and my stereo set up for music, it is feeling like home, which is nice.
My gym is kinda far...Embarcadero Y...but it's all good....if I can get myself to go there...
I've gained like 5lbs in the last 6 weeks from all of the moving and job stress. Just been shoveling crap food into my body like there is no tomorrow with no gym time to help compensate. Thankfully, I'm cooking at home again and hope to get back to the gym soon. I wish life would stop kicking my ass so I could get down to the maintenance weight I want to have once and for all! =P
