Put some feelgood music on and think about all the calories you're burning.

Thanks for Judging (Or, My Aerobics Instructor Thinks I'm Anorexic)

Thursday, May 13, 2010

Instructor: "You've lost weight."
Me: "Um-hmm." (Polite smile.)
Instructor: "How much weight have you lost?"
"I don't know. I don't have a scale."
"You don't have a scale?"
"Nope."
"Well how are you losing the weight?"
"I come here on Monday, Wednesday and Friday."
"And you don't eat?"
"Ummm... actually I eat a lot. I really like cooking."
"Well do you go to Weight Watchers?"
"Nope."
"Hmmm..." (Look of disbelief.)

How much do you want to bet that she doesn't comment on weight GAINS? What makes people think that other peoples' weight loss is an appropriate topic for conversation? Especially when your tone is ACCUSATORY? If I really wasn't eating, or if I was over-exercising, or if there was any other big problem, her tone would definitely have made me clam up and not want to share. Grrrr...

    Judgements!! Phhoooeey!!

I have been running for almost 4 years, and I am running my first half-marathon tomorrow.... My dad tells me the other day, "You are getting too old for that." Excuse me? Thanks so much for all your kind words, support, encouragement and admiration, DAD!

If you feel good about your body, and you are healthy, which obviously, you are, then.....'ROCK ON!!

    Someone recently told me that he was worried about me. Thought I was losing weight too fast.

I hate that someone thinks I'm losing my weight unhealthily - because I'm doing it right this time!!

Sucks, and all you can do is believe in yourself and be proud of yourself. We all are proud of you too!

    I'm not sure how much I've lost... I haven't weighed myself in two weeks. Last I checked I was about seventeen pounds down, which worked out to about two pant sizes. Even if I was thirty pounds down I would still be in the healthy weight range, and even if I was below the healthy weight range I don't think accusing me of not eating is a step in the right direction.

    Next time tell her that when she bends over that her ass looks huge, but that you never wanted to say anything. It's fun to be a catty witch sometimes! It can relieve stress!

    I certainly HOPE she wouldn't comment on someone's gains!!!! Maybe as a fitness instructor she fancies herself a "qualified expert" to comment on your losses. (Congrats, btw.) Maybe she's jealous? Or maybe she IS truly happy for you and proud of you and just one of those people that every single thing they say comes out wrong.


Oh, and off-topic of your blog, I just wnated to say I really enjoy reading all your posts on the message boards.

    Well, that was just plain rude! For an aerobics instructor, I'd think that she'd be happy about the loss. (I don't know much about aerobics, other then it's an exercise, so I could be wrong about that statement.) Shouldn't she be offering to find you a scale to check your weight, rather then (indirectly) accusing you of loosing too much weight?

I'm sorry to hear that this happened. Not everyone is like that, but it's annoying when you run into someone that is. Can I offer to try and take this as a lesson in humanity and move to the next thing?

Brightest Blessings,
Mary

I'm SOOOOO Hungry!

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

For the past two days I've been starving! It's not period-related, I haven't changed my exercise routine... I'm just starving! I'm at the high end of my recommended calorie intake (including seven calories over the other day!) and I'm getting all the carbs, fat and protein that is recommended. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all from homemade, and each meal includes carbs, fruits/veggies and proteins. So why am I so hungry?

    I had a whole week like that last week. It finally ended, but I thought I was going to slit my wrists for a while!

(just joking about the wrists LOL)

Hang in there!

  I know how you feel. I have the same problem off and on. I talked to my nuritionist, and he says that your body's hunger can vary day to day depending on the amount of food you'd eaten the day prior. I guess just try to keep your calorie intake as even as possible. You can get through it though, just keep your goals in sight!

Clocking in My Fitness Minutes

Monday, May 10, 2010

Yet another ninety-minute bootcamp! This time we did crunches from a reclining position and it was soooo much better than regular crunches... no strain on my back! I'm not sure what it is about that position that works with my body, but I'll definitely be doing more like that whenever possible! Oh, and the weather is ALMOST nice enough to start walking to and from the gym... but not quite!

I Did Nothing Today!

Sunday, May 09, 2010

I woke up at 1:00 pm, made some lunches for the work week, read Lonely Planet Turkey, watched Amazing Race, did laundry... I only left my house to take out the garbage (and recycling!). This is seriously the laziest day I've had since I started Sparking... and I love it!

    ... before I read your "and I love it" ... I was about to add.... "and don't'cha just LOVE it?"

So glad you are looking at it in just the right way.

Thanks for your comment on my blog!

Cheers,

Tricia
