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?"
"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?"
"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...
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?
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 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!
