Not long after posting last night my internet went down while trying to catch up on the blogs I follow. So now I’m 3 days behind on some of you. Thankfully when I got home from work this afternoon the internet was working again. Most important thing about it working properly is keeping track of my calories. I can do it through my Iphone but I find it much easier from the laptop. Counting calories I think is the biggest reason I’m losing the weight as well as I am. I was eating this well 3 years ago but wasn’t counting calories. So now that I see this working so well I need my SparkPeople at home to keep it going!
Lauralei commented on yesterday’s post that she would up the calories if she knew she was burning as many calories as I was. I guess some days like yesterday I could but I’m trying not to because things are going so well keeping it in the usual 1800-2200 calories. I figure I’ll keep this up till I see a plateau in my weight or a change in my energy level. If I’m not eating enough and doing too much exercise for the food I’m eating I should feel the difference and will up the calories then.
When Jolene commented yesterday…”You are so active!! You must be in fantastic shape!!!” I immediately smiled and kind of chuckled at the thought of me being in fantastic shape. I’ve been thinking about it since though and she’s right. I mean I can run 6.7 miles now. I play badminton for 1.5-2 hours every Tuesday. My running off days I walk 4 miles(when uninjured!) and now I’m golfing which I walk and carry my clubs. So yes I’m in great shape it’s just that the body doesn’t look as good as its functioning now. I’m working on that though and eventually the wrapper will match the core.
I was thinking of writing something else but I can’t remember what it was so I’ll leave it at that for today. Have a good evening everyone!
