Note to self...relax...self.

Hi folks,
Did my workout at the gym, I am a creature of habit so I did the same workout I've been doing. When it stops working, I'll shake it up. I have been eating a little more over the last week, around 1650 to 1700 cause I am hungry. I think the intensity of the workouts may have increased my appetite. Not sure whether to either cut back on the workouts or what. Guess If I am burning it off, no big diff. I think I just need to make sure the calories I consumed while just walking and eating around 1550 is offset by the precor and the 480 calories an hour I am burning...I will have to do the calculations. Or, I could wait a week and see what the scale says, unless I am building muscle, which would throw that off....(insert silent scream here). Maybe I should put my scale up, wait three to four weeks, take it back out and see what happens. Maybe I should take my scale, paint it in multi colors....step on it and record the numbers in free verse on my blog and think of it as a piece of living art. Or, I could simply shoot the scale and put us both out of our misery. What say you?

Maybe I should NOT WORRY SO MUCH. Heck, I didn't get fat eating 1700 calories a day, and exercising 1.5 hours a day, six days a week. Honestly.

So, How are all of you. Hope you guys are doing great with everything and crazy hasn't lodged in your brain. I do this, I get ahead of myself. This many pounds by this date, blah, blah, blah. One pound at a time. I need that tattoo-ed on the inside of my eyelids. I mostly want to lose weight (or most of it...or all of it...by next July cause I am headed back to michigan to see my family) Its good to have goals, but I have to keep reminding myself that this isn't for next July, it's for a lifetime. I will remember if you will.

I know, it all messes with our brains sometimes!

I don't think the extra calories are a problem, provided they're really good quality calories... You don't build a body with junk!

I'm in awe of your exercise... You go, girl!
