This eating and exercise balance is a little difficult. Let me explain... I changed my fitness goals to match what I am currently doing (kickboxing, body sculpting, daily jogging/walking) - so that means my calorie intake is higher. I finally figured out that I was not consuming enough calories to support all the exercise. So I had to make an adjustment, which means eating more.
I have been eating around 1200 calories for the past two years. An old habit is hard to break, especially since my body is so used to it. Now my body needs 1550 calories a day - it's hard to change my mindset - I ask myself over and over: Should I really be eating this much? How can I? Am I going to gain weight from this? do I really believe eating more is the answer?
It's really messing with my mind, I just can't imagine having to eat this much, but SP hasn't been wrong about anything - so I take the information on this website as "gospel" and follow it to a T - because I know it does work.
Seems like I am constantly eating to try to get in enough calories - I snack all day long in between meals, I'm eating nutrious meals and I am still having a hard time eating this much. I had to go out for frozen yogurt last night just to add some extra calories, I walked there to get it, which was a nice 3-mile roundtrip bonus.
My stomach is miserably stuffed and I still need to consume about 300-400 more calories in a day, I am definitely gonna have to get creative and do some experimenting.

I went to the Daughtry concert on Saturday - he is so awesome, he sang a few songs from his first CD, a lot of the new ones from Leave This Town and he mixed in some old school stuff - Phil Collins and Billy Idol. The man was awesome, you can tell when someone puts in 100% effort and he definitely gave it his all. Awesome, awesome, awesome - I was sitting in row 25, but my daughters camera has a great zoom, pretty good pics for being that far away. Can't wait til Daughtry comes around again, will definitely go. I'm still a rocker chick at heart. Something super sexy about a guy who can sing and play the guitar. Love me some Daughtry.

I lost one pound this week. Yeah, one pound is probably not significant to most people but for me is one humongous stride. I have been at a plateau for nearly a month, I decided to change things around a little and I guess it worked. One pound loss - hooray, hopefully I'm back on a roll. Hoping to get more fitness in this week, last week wasn't feeling to swift, and I'm still really not feeling quite up to par, but I'm sucking it up and trying to get back into high gear. Hope everyone has a good week. Hopefully tomorrow I am going to post concert pics from this weekend, stay tuned if you like Daughtry.

Gotta hot date with Chris Daughtry tonight, I've got awesome seats and an optical zoom on my camera. Gonna be awesome, just hope I'm feeling up to it to enjoy it, still not feeling to swell. Gonna start my day with a long slow walk, can't manage much else due to ear infection. Hope everyone has a Sparkly day.

1. Function at work with a double ear infection and sinus infection????
I went to doc yesterday for an ear ache and I have double ear and sinus infection, I couldn't stay home from work today since I will be off tomorrow, so I am at work sick and don't think I'm gonna make it through the day, fever is 100.5, gonna stick it out as long as I can.
2. Eat a low fat, healthy meal at Olive Garden???
We are joining family for dinner at OG tonight for our grandson's bday. I have been worried all week about what I can eat there. I did my homework and everything I like is loaded with fat and calories, so maybe a kids meal ravioili, or I will order chicken and only eat 1/4 of it. I really don't feel like eating at this point anyway - no appetite today, so problem solved - no calories or fat in skipping the meal. But I am going to dinner anyway, can't miss my awesome grandson's 13th bday.
Ok, I'm done whining now, thanks for listening.
