eat less, work out more, eat less, work out more

Friday, July 23, 2010

I wish I had my husband's problem. He can't gain weight no matter what he does. I am the opposite. If only we could just switch metabolisms. It is hard hanging out with someone who can eat whatever they want. I am committed to logging all food so that I can really change my eating habits. I work out like crazy but my weight does not budge so obviously I just am eating too much. I feel great. I am much fitter than I used to be endurance wise. I have more strength and feel better, however my weight just stays around the same. I know that my weight training is helping to add pounds of muscle, so I am going to focus on body fat percentage reduction. Change happens in little steps. So here is my little step for the day: log the food.....I have been committed to logging the food for about a week and half and I finally went down 5 pounds, so onward....

    Adding muscle is really going to help you take off weight now that you've got the food side of the equation worked out. Plus, you're feeling fitter, which is a fantastic thing. Keep logging, no matter what you eat. It can help you be accountable to yourself. I've gone off the deep end a few times and having to enter the food I ate and look in horror at the calories they contained help drag me back on track.

    You can do this.

    Yup, putting it down on paper or on the computer really makes it clear how much we eat each day. When I'm just eating what I want and not "trying" the numbers are scary high and totally explain why my weight goes up and up and up.
