What I learned in one day
Friday, November 02, 2012
I decided to log some of my food yesterday. Here's what I learned - dang, some foods just aren't that great! My usual breakfast was way too big. I thought I was having a "light" breakfast. Turns out it was 500 calories! True, the nutritional value was pretty freeking amazing, but my idea of what makes a meal light or heavy is all off.
I decided to walk to the grocery store to get lunch. Go figure, it wasn't comfortable to do all that walking. My back muscles cramped up, and my back cracked when I finally sat down. That's not a good feeling all around.
Tonight I'm going to see about cooking dinner instead of going out. I'm also going to make it a point to get in the gym this weekend. If I can do 15-20 minutes of cardio and something to strengthen my lower back muscles, I will call it success. I have no delusions of running for 10 minutes on the treadmill when a 10 minute walk is uncomfortable, but I just need to get back in the habit of being in a gym.
