Competing with fitbit with husband

Mistake. Next topic... He seriously burned 200 calories more than I do in his sleep lol The other day we were sitting around in our robes. I left the house to hit the gym for an hr running 3 miles and water aerobics. I got back he was still in his robe and he was way ahead of me on calorie burn.... So ummm ya no wonder he stays so skinny. He is very figity and running around everywhere all the time. Takes me all day to get 25 flights of stairs, he manages 60 without trying and he has no stairs at his work either. Oh well mine is motivating me and I have told ppl about it and gotten at least 4-5 people to get them as well.
My friend told me a good thing for fertility is having a little ice cream each night. At first this sounded like a terrible idea for me. Oh god I will eat all the ice cream in 1 sitting. But I paid a little more and got little individual cups of ice cream and each one is 110 calories. I put them in the deep freezer in our basement so I gotta get a flight of stairs just getting 1 lol I have been taking Prenatal vitamins for 2 weeks now. I can't believe how fast my nails are growing. I can't tell if my hair is growing fast too, I am sure it is. Just harder to notice. I can see why women stay on prenatals even if they aren't doing anything with a baby.
Ok I gotta rant. I have been going to water aerobics class a lot lately and if you have ever been to one, you will know there's lots of talking. So I get to overhear all the new years resolution dieters talking about their new exciting ventures. Two women last night were gonna do calorie cycling. Yes I have done that but it's not dramatic like they were talking. When I did it, it was like 1680 one day and then 1500 the next and then 1900 the next. No theirs was 2000 one day 1000 the next, back and forth like that. 1000 really? You burn half that sleeping each night. I said, why don't you just eat 1500 a day and get the same benefit? they scoffed at me like I was stupid. I love when I tell ppl like this about my weight loss. They are interested but they are on a adventure and that's all they care about. Ok keep tormenting yourself, I tried. I wont even get into Dr. Oz and his amazing list of herbs in the jungle that melt the weight off. Sorry ladies I work at a health food store and never once in 2.5 yrs have I seen anyone return saying OMG that green coffee bean extract melted my fat off! Never have I seen it bought twice. Please please please save your $35 dollars, get a gym membership, go for a walk, log your food, be conscious of what you eat and think with common sense. No wonder dieting is "awful" and never works.
