Thank the Lord for Saturdays.
Thank you everyone for such thoughtful and uplifting comments regarding last nights post. Clearly I was having a self-pity moment. As women, I’m sure we have all had a time when we felt bad about ourselves for some reason or another. It feels liberating to sort of put it out there and to then receive such positive support. Thank you. I’ve decided to start fresh and do something helpful for myself today. No, I’m not getting my haircut but I will work out and that alone always helps.
Onto the weigh in. It’s no surprise that after eating Ben and Jerry’s for two nights in a row I might gain. And I did. I’m fine with it and took it into consideration last night right before I shoved a gooey, chocolate, marshmallow spoonful into my mouth.
After emailing back and forth with a bloggie friend, I have decided to follow her lead and join Calorie King. I have been a member before and it is truly a great resource. It calculates the days calories and has everything in the data base so it’s easy to find. CK also breaks down you food into food groups and calculates vitamins and minerals. How cool is that? I know that there are free versions of calorie counting sites out there…. I’ve joined a few but find them much less convenient (sparkpeople). Len always says I like to throw away money; this might be true (but only when it comes to diets and I have faith that one day it wont be wasted.) I will be testing out their free trial for one week before fully committing.
So that’s pretty exciting! CK is also cool because it calculates in the calories you burn from working out and makes you eat them. I used to feel guilty eating the calories back but from what I’ve learned, it’s part of the calculation and to follow it as is. Okay then.
