@$#% the @#$% Scale...

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

So I just weighed myself for the first time since I've been back in Richardson, and the scale here says 159.4. That's almost a pound over the last weight that I tracked, but I'm using a different scale, so screw it, I'm not going to actually track that number until it goes down a little (it's probably a difference in the scales, and it hasn't been a week since my last weigh in anyway).

I used my exercise bike on Monday night. I think I forgot how difficult using an exercise bike actually is, so I think I'm going to have to readjust my goal. In my shape, 30 minutes almost killed me, damn it. Also, if I actually did use the bike 30 minutes a day every day, I'd go way over my calories burned goal for the week, so I might be screwing my program up by doing that anyway. I'm going to cut it back to 15 minutes a day, and I can do 30 minutes if I feel like it (which means I'll be good for two days!).

I might add in a little yoga, but for now I don't think I'll call it a goal. Just another "if I feel like doing it."

I am doing pretty good about drinking water. This is probably because I've completely stopped drinking soda. It's also easy to drink a bottle of water while I'm sitting in class.

I'm not as worried about my classes anymore now that the semester's started. I've already been to all my classes, so I don't have to stress about that anymore, at least. I'm still a little worried about the possibility of letting my game lab team down, but I think it's going to be alright. I'll just do my best on the typography, and try to contribute as much as I can in other areas...I realize now that I actually have a lot to offer, if I can just sell the other people in the group on some of my ideas.

    I used to take other measurements. I should probably start searching for my measuring tape...

    I find that I drink so much more water during class than I do at home or on the weekends. Have you taken any measurements? I think that they are more reliable than the scale and seem to reflect how I feel/look better than my weight does.
