So...I fell off the wagon. Time to get back on and continue the journey. I know being sick isn't an excuse for my poor eating habits. Honestly, I know I should have ate better. But, its too late for that now.
I'm feeling much better aside from an annoying cough. Now I need to find something to kick start my drab workout routine. The gym is starting to get boring and I can't necessarily afford any workout videos. My gym doesn't have Zumba or anything of that nature. Then again, I'm not really a dancer. It'd be nice to have a friend or two to hit the gym with, but nobody wants to get up at 9 am to go with me. I usually go after I bring my son to daycare since it's on the way.
Maybe, instead of the gym I can run around my neighborhood. It's about 3 miles or so to do the complete circle. Or I can invest in a new bike I suppose. I don't know. My determination and drive to look and feel better has all but washed away.
I was disappointed when I found out I didn't really lose 10 pounds. =( I found this out when they weighed me at the doctor's office and i was 173 and not 168. So I've lost about 5. That's still decent but not as decent as I was hoping. I usually burn about 200 calories on a bad day and 450 on a good day. That just doesn't seem like a lot to me. I feel like I need to burn 700 or more. I guess I'm still confused on how exercising and eating go hand in hand! If I burn 400 calories does that mean that's an extra 400 I can eat a day? How do I get all the fat and fiber and things I need without overdoing the calories?
I always end up being hungry too. I need to find more hardy meals with fewer calories so I can eat lunch and not be hungry 2 hours later. I will do some research again and figure out a better plan to meet my needs.
