Miscellaneous thoughts

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Yesterday I was stressed over my classroom schedule and that I am teaching Audio/Video instead of DIM, only 3 of my yearbook kids are in a class, and even then, they are split between 2 classes. And my biggest class is an online class I just proctor. After dinner was the hardest point of the day and frustration. Andy & Gil were both in the shop and I was getting hungry. I wanted to get into lots of food, but had a cup of ice cream instead. I tea-cup of ice cream. Not a bowl like I started to reach for, put that back and got the tea-cup. That was my challenge and highlight!

I wrote SparkCoach again - Am I under-eating for my activity? I noticed that when I updated my nutrition for the ice-cream, I had 1700 calories to eat, not the usual 12-1500 (or whatever it is). It made me think, since I’ve just started syncing my fitness with my calories, maybe I’m not eating enough. I’m afraid though to try and up my food intake, so I wrote. Maybe they have something to say about it...

I saw the quote below on someones post... It reminds me of me and my family. My sisters say they are only caretakers for our parents, but I think of them more as Monkeys - and they aren’t going away...

    Quote made me giggle!

    I am also blown away by the amount of calories SP wants me to eat since I changed to the new tracker yesterday. I don't think I am that active, so the ranges look massive to me.. (But could be a piece towards solving my puzzle; why I am not loosing despite sticking to the plan for months. Maybe I have been under-eating?)

    I love your quote...makes me think of my siblings too. I, too, am afraid to do too much with calories; I've been stalled for quite a while, so I probably need to do something...even if it's wrong!!
