Exercise: What, do you want EVERY part of my life? This isn’t a tell all book, people. Geez! Ok, I didn’t exercise today. Fine. Happy now?
Shit. I am not unhappy about what I ate today, but 1,710 calories is out of the desired range. And 27.75 grams of fat? I can’t say that is good at all.
Throughout the day I didn’t feel I was doing too bad. I didn’t think I was having a great day, but still never thought I would exceed the desired calorie intake. Still, I’ve really got to cut out the sandwiches. It is really becoming addictive. I actually woke up today craving sandwiches.
Oh well. I still ate five times and did something I thought was very, very smart.
See, I got a foot-long sub for lunch today. But after the first half, I decided I was full. I put the rest away for a snack later in the afternoon. That actually saved me calories. I am a genius.
As for the exercise, if you want an excuse, it was cold. If you want another excuse, I was too broke to go to the gym (where I still haven’t gotten an official membership. I should do that. I’ll put it on the list.). But if you want the truth, my thighs are a little, uh, chapped up from the elliptical machine yesterday. The same thing happened, to a much larger degree, Saturday. But Sunday I was fine, so I don’t anticipate having any problems with tomorrow’s workout.
I shouldn’t weigh myself more than once a week, but I know I will be tempted to do so tomorrow. I guess we’ll see what happens.
This was a pretty boring day, my ass hurts from writing, count em, FIVE stories tonight. And Jimmy Kimmel is doing his show from my hometown of Detroit tonight. So I am gonna go ahead and watch this.
Sorry to blow you off. Just remember, you are the most important people in my life.
Not really. But you are appreciated.
