OK so now that I am back from vacation and ready to go I just need the weather to work with me..lol Since we have been back it has been rainy & cold. Well it may not seem so cold but when you just came from temps. around 100 this is cold.
We also came back with some sort of bug. I wasn't feeling well Friday and Saturday and yesterday Chris was running a temp. that got up to 102. He still isn't feeling well today and I am tired and my tummy hurts. Really wanted to go to Zumba tonight but I think that I will start fresh tomorrow.
Things I am going to change are I have joined SparkPeople. I am going to start counting calories. I love graphing things and being organized so I hope this helps. They also had a free app. for my Iphone so it is already downloaded. They have put me on a range of 1,200-1,550 for my calories. I had bought a scale but never really used it to measure food. After visiting Marcelle I realized I can zero it out after I add something to the bowl every time. I swear sometimes I just don't think.lol I have been using it a lot more now that I realize if saves a lot on dirty dishes!
I would like to make a graph for exercise. Once again marking things off and graphs make me happy. I am all about organization & this is right up my alley. As for exercise once school starts I will only be able to do Zumba on Monday nights. I really feel that I need to mix it up. On that note though I still have till the end of the month to do Zumba 4 days a week and I am going to do it because I love it! i also realize that I need to get back to doing weights. Something I really don't enjoy.
I am really hoping that changing this up is just what I need. I am tired of maintaining at the weight I am at. If this was my goal weight I would be good to go but it isn't. To me the number matters and I am far from it.
So I am off on counting calories and I guess I will see where I am in a couple months. I will work on a graph for my exercise and start fresh. Tonight I am taking it slow though as I do not feel well and just found out a friend of the family died.
*After I wrote this my daughter was invited to the bowling alley so I decided well I was there I could do Zumba. Needless to say I was dressed and dropped her off to find her chasing me b/c they were closed for today. Just my luck. Guess I will hit the gym in the morning.
