Learning how calories work.

Saturday, February 12, 2011 at 12:42 PM filed under Diet & Nutrition postings
In order to reach my initial goal weight of 130 lbs., FitClick has given me a daily calorie intake range of 1200-1300. That sounds like a lot, until you start planning meals. It’s going to take some practice to get myself into this range. But at least I’m already making progress. I just had lunch, and usually by this time I’m way beyond the 1300-calorie range. I think I had hit 1300 calories in the middle of my fast-food breakfast yesterday. So to have just finished lunch today and jus...

Clean and Ready

I am no longer on call. I have gone grocery shopping and filled my kitchen with healthy, delicious food. I took a bubble bath and did all the girly things, giving myself a mani/pedi and shaving my legs. I am now in clean jammies, getting ready for a good night's sleep (my first good night's sleep in days). Tomorrow will involve jogging, relaxing, getting some errands and housecleaning down, and starting my new, healthy lifestyle.

I can still turn this around.

This weekend, I was watching a stand-up special on Comedy Central. The comedian was Billy Gardell from Mike and Molly, and the special was called Halftime. He explained the title: He’s in his 40s, so this is officially halftime for him. As he ruefully looked down at his very plus-sized body, he said, “And man, I’ve played a crappy first half!” I laughed, but I felt a bit of hope. I'm 41. It’s only halftime. And this is where everything turns around in the football comedies I love so muc...
