Stupid Jeans Shrunk Again!!!

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

All right. This is getting ridiculous. All my jeans including my loose ones are to tight. Stupid dryer must be shrinking them.

Seriously...I worked so hard to hit goal and now I just can't pull it together to save my life and am letting two years of hard work go to waste. It isn't alot of weight, but it's coming fast and hard. I'm not eating that much, but I'm also not exercising nearly enough.

I finally found a maintenance calculator. The 2000 calories a day they recommend for women isn't even close to what someone with a 5'0 105 lb frame can use for maintenance. I need 1150.

Thinking I was okay between 1200-1400 is part of the problem. It doesn't take long to get an extra 3500 calories into your diet when you're putting in an extra 50-250 a day.

Anyway, I need to start over at square one and build myself a schedule. I'm working to much and then the kids are home and I'm not scheduling the me time I need to take care of myself. I need to start factoring my exercise into my day at a time I'm still getting enough sleep.

I need my jeans to stop shrinking, because there isn't a chance my DH is going to let me go buy a new wardrobe because I slacked off after what I spent on the last one. Maybe I just need a new dryer...

    What a funny post! I loved it.

    It sounds like you're doing what you need to do, figuring out what your calorie intake should be and planning time for yourself and your exercise. It totally sounds like you can do whatever you need to do.

    And that's a good thing too, because I hear dryers are pretty pricey!
