I’m Not Perfect, But That Might Be A Good Thing
Friday, November 05, 2010
Ok, so today I weight myself and I’m up a bit. The Wii Fit has all kinds of helpful pokes as me. First, it asks why I gained. Then, it says I might be eating more because it is cold out. Hmmmm…could be that I’m surrounded by chocolate and I have the sweet tooth of Mr. Willy Wonka himself. The other thing that got me was just how much I could eat because I worked out an extra 100 calories over my goal. I would snack on this and snack on that. I would tell myself, I worked out extra hard today, so I can eat. Hahaha. Yeah, sounds good in theory.
Realistically, I do need to cut down my calorie burn goals for the week. Burning 1000 calories a day was a lot easier when I was 40 pounds heavier. Don’t get me wrong here. Running 4 miles is a lot easier now than when I was 40 pounds heavier. However, the calorie burn was a lot higher. It seemed if I walked a block, it burned 500 calories. Maybe not quite, but that is what it seemed. Now, I have to work for about an hour more to get that same burn. So, no wonder I’m always hungry. I’m always moving. Might sound like a good thing, but I know my body needs rest too.
So this post is just to let you all know I’m not perfect, which I think is helpful. If you are like me, I hate perfect people. Good for them, yeah, but doesn’t do much for me. So now, I’m admitting to my imperfections so you all can love me, just the way I am.
What am I going to do now? Well, lower my calorie burn goals and see if that makes me less hungry. I’m also going to go over my portion controls. I am thinking that I’ve been a little liberal with those scoops. Again, thinking that my extra 100 calorie burn is going to cover every BLT (bite, lick, taste) that I do while cooking or prepping food.
On a side note, I got a new fitness buddy last night. It is a three-eyed robot with four ears. I’ll let you all kick that around for a bit. Hopefully I’ll be back on tomorrow or Sunday to update you on what I’m referring to.
Until then, happy Sparking everyone!
