Talking to my ass
Thursday, November 17, 2011      2 comments

Today I went walking/jogging again but I did not go willingly. My ass made me do it. Me: It is cold outside! I do not want to go out and walk 2.2 miles in this chilly wind! My ass: Sure, okay, let's sit around and I'll keep you warm ... Read more

Normally I go to the Y but I've had three days off in a row (doesn't happen much) and I didn't want to drive all that way every day if I didn't have work, too. So instead I went for a walk yesterday and today. Two-and-a-half/three miles each d... Read more

Yesterday I weighed myself (as it was weigh-day). Yesterday I thought 'if I can keep losing two pounds a week, by my birthday I will be overweight instead of obese'. Yesterday I thought 'yeah! I can make an appointment for a physical for tha... Read more

I was thinking of calling this entry: Yes Sir, That's My Back-Fat but decided against it. Today at the Y after I did my 30 minutes on the machines (a Precor 100i Adaptive-Motion thing that's a lot like the mutant offspring of a stepper a... Read more

I'm having a hard time meeting my calorie intake goals. I'm also trying to watch my pie-charts and make sure that they're close to the recommended balances. For example? Today's fat was high. Why? Because I ate pizza. A lot of pizza. ... Read more

It seems that I'm burning way more calories than I should during a week. I have to adjust my calories-burned-per-week and calorie intake. I could always down-grade my time at the Y but I really want to get in the habit of going and working... Read more
Four down!

Four pounds down this week! Yeah! I can do this! I'm not going to expect this every week. I'm going to use this week as a touchstone when the weight loss slows or hits a plateau--I've done new things, I've stuck with it, I changed thing... Read more

Usually being sick is a great excuse for me to do whatever I want--like lying around all day. Today I made my self go to the Y and hit the elliptical for thirty-five minutes. It doesn't matter that the last ten minutes were all cool down--I di... Read more
Too much?

I write ficiton for fun but since starting here I haven't opened a single file. Am I spending too much time on the pages, trying to earn spark points? I once watched an episode of 'My Strange Addiction' and the therapist told the addict ... Read more

Tried a recipe today that just didn't turn out the way I wanted. Sadness! Also: My stomach is bothering me. I tried a few spices to fix it and that just backfired. Ah, well--live and learn, right? In other news: I don't think it's my ar... Read more
Hurting today!

I did some strength training yesterday--just at-home stuff, lunges and standing adductions/abductions but today I'm sore! Really sore! Sitting down and standing up both hurt! It's not unmanageable but it's certainly there. I still went and d... Read more

Ha! Does the title make it sound like I meant to give up so soon? I don't. I'm really loving Spark so far--the nutrition tracker is such a powerful tool for me. And I'm going to experiment with recipes. Came in UNDER calories today. Not s... Read more

I'm just getting started here. I'm going to believe that this will help. I am going to have faith that this is the first step of many. I am going to change because I want to change. I might be scared of what's under all this fat, but I'm go... Read more
