Yeeesh, just give up the blog already, right? Not really back from the dead, more like back from the disinterested. So far 2012 has not been shaping up to be a stellar year, in fact it’s been pretty crappy so far. But hey, onward and upward, right? Think positive, all that good shit.
With the more positive spin, I’ve decided to focus on the outward and shallow. I signed back into my livestrong.com account and started keeping track of my calories to try to lose weight. The site told me that at my height/weight/activity level, I should aim for 1250 calories/day if I want to lose 2 lbs/week. It’s been four days and I’ve gone over every day. But I’ve kept them below 1500 cal/day. Good start, I guess. Portion control, better food choices, blah blah blah… I’ll start throwing in some exercise next week. One week at a time.
You know what’s more boring that a never-updated website? A weight-loss website. But whatever. Maybe it will keep me motivated.
Last time I was using the livestrong.com site, I was a little lighter than I am now. The funny thing is that there’s a badge that you use to put on your website that has your weight change. Mine said, “I’ve gained 15 pounds using Livestrong.com” Ha! Maybe not the best marketing tool.
It says 11, but you know how you lose the water weight? Yeah, that. Plus I weigh myself first thing in morning after getting rid of everything that could possibly add an ounce or two. That’s all the detail I’ll share about that. Although, I even take off my glasses. Issues, I gots them.
