Sunday, November 01, 2015
Welp, November will be an adventure from 195 to 190. I suppose I was only kidding myself that I could skip the game, eat more junk, and still lose the weight. But to be honest, Sparkpeople fed my delusion. I bike to work. Have for years. I wore a HTC monitor and average maybe 130 bpm for the trip, that is an estimated 200 calories burned for my age, height, weight and gender. Sparkpeople agrees, so I am basically 400 calories in the hole on workdays and I happily fill that hole with junkfood while remaining within my range.
Except I can stay within my range, make my cardiovascular quotas, and gain weight. I am not a researcher or a nutritionist, but I know my body. She needs quality foods regardless of calorie total and she is accustomed to the bine riding so my commute doesn't really count as exercise anymore (for weight loss purposes anyway, it is still great for my health)
So BOOOOOOOOO. I wanted to be out of 195 which fits like a cheap suit. It is not me, is not my usual range at all. I am "usually" ~185 and my super-fit self is 165. But I have to work for it.
I stayed sober at the Halloween party and all weekend but I did have candy and Yes, I have an ache in my neck where the migraine begins. I did my rituals to keep it at bay and now I will try the gym. Goodbye, 195. You have seen your last month.
