To not be the fattest person in the room?
First things first.
I went to the gym today and burned 705 calories on Arnold.
Then, I did 165 situps.
I did 75 regular ones.
Then I did 2 sets of 30 obliques one right, one left
then I did 3 sets of 10 'situps' in the sense that I was laying down and had my knees bent.
then I curled up with my hips putting my knees almost to my chest and then tapped down on my toes and then quickly lifted back up. You can really feel it in your lower abdominal muscles.
Unlike a lot of 'situps' that focus on the lower abs but seem to actually work your hip flexors.
I could feel the burn under that fat pooch that just lies there...mocking me. I found that exercise on the internet.
I went to my meeting...my COOKIE TRAINING SELLING THINGAMAJIG.
This was where I WAS NOT the fattest person in the room.
I wasn't even close...in fact I would say...looking around I was in the top ten skinniest people there.
That sounds concieted and horrible doesn't it?
I don't care.
For years I would walk in a room and within moments was positive that I was indeed...the fattest person present.
Just for the record.
The person directing the meeting...very thin.
And As I thought.... there were cookies.
plates and plates.
I had two cookies.
a samoa and a thin mint.
damage done 105 calories.
They kept passing them around and around.
I kept watching the women eat them.
It made me want a low calorie dinner.
When I got home I had an omelet.
I felt so awesome coming out of there, I controlled myself calorie wise.
I was on the thin side of the average.
It was so different than every other meeting I've been to in the last five years, I can't even tell you.
I kept my calories to 1510 today.
fage yogurt honey and peaches: 310 cal.
pretzels: 160 cals.
apple: 80 cal
coffee: 220 cals
14 baked tortilla chips with 1/4 cup salsa: 180
2 cookies 1 samoa 75 cal. and one thin mint: 35 cal.
omelette with turkey sausage, mushrroms and cheese: 450 cal.
Thank you everyone for all the encouraging words.
I think If i tried really hard, I could cut back to one cup of coffee.
I would do the no cal low cal sweetener, but it just ruins the taste for me.
I drink it with 2 percent and two Tablespoons of sugar. That would put my calories in at 110 for a cup. I drink a big cup...so it's probably 12 oz's.
I think it was olivia who said in the comments that they don't like any food having a hold on them, I am the same way. If this weight loss thing really means something, I can cut back to one cup a day. (by the way, drop by olivia's blog...it looks great)
It does, so I will.
If Sean from a daily diary of a winning loser can quit smoking. I can cut back to one cup of coffee.
(keep talking and I may convince myself)
I also read in the comments about how my maintenance calories seem low for the weight I will be trying to maintain.
I have no idea how to maintain. (never having done it)
I figured I would start with the 1500 to 1600 and then see where the needle goes.
If it hits the 120's so much the better. My bottom out number would be around 122.
I don't think I would look too good much lower. If it comes right down to it, I will just have to buck up and eat more , as hard as that may be. ;oP
I don't think eating will ever be a problem for me though. I like food too much,lol.
I am back to the gym tomorrow to finish out my first week of exercise for my fatmaggedon challenge.
If I see a difference on the scale...I'll post it...if not, its off on for exercise (my one day of rest per week ) on wednesday, and then back to it Thursday.
Hope everyone is having a successful day and that you are ready for tomorrow.
