Giving the Blog a try!

Monday, April 14, 2008

Ok, so I've finally decided to give this Blog thing a try. I've had a couple of stretches of bad days and need something to kick my focus back in to gear. It all started to go downhill last week when I was sick Monday and Tuesday - only good thing from that is I dropped 4lbs in two days! Of course most of it came back as soon as food stayed in my stomach for more than a couple hrs! :-) I got back into gear the rest of the week, but then slacked off tracking my nutrition all weekend. Is it worth trying to figure out what I ate the last two+ days or not bother? I don't think I ate all that bad, but one thing I have learned from this site so far is that most of what I eat is higher calorie than I'd have thought. Final bad string of events - today when I went to the gym to workout (I swim laps M/W/F) I find out the lap pool is closed til Thursday - new heater! While it's nice to think I won't have to swim in 75 deg water anymore, that's two swim days I'll miss! :-( But on the good side of things, I bought a water pitcher this weekend and have been drinking more water than I usually manage today and I'm going to walk to daycare to p/up my kids - so that's a 1.5 mile walk to help make up for the missed swimming. So, there's my venting for the day - I think I feel better. We'll see if I like the whole blog idea or not...til next time.

    HI Beth! Good job on the blog! I have to say that since I've started recording what I'm eating, I too notice that I've been consuming WAY more calories than I was estimating. Also, I found out this past weekend that when I don't log my food, my focus is completely non-existent. No more weekends without focus for me!

    Anyways, just wanted to stop by and comment on your blog so you'd know that people do actually read them! Keep up the good work!
