Damn this getting healthy crap sucks. But it’s going well, if that makes sense. I downloaded MyFitnessPal, a calorie tracking app where you input your food and exercise (tangent: I just had the hardest time spelling exercise, and I’m like little miss spelling bee champ. I think my subconscious is rebelling against me) and it gives you your net calories and how much you can eat based on your weight loss goal. I like it because I don’t have to put in my own foods-I tried Lose It first but it never seemed to have anything I eat, and I don’t want to look at labels. If I did, I wouldn’t have an app for that :). It also has a nifty feature where when you complete your entry for the day, it tells you what your weight will be in 5 weeks if every day is like that day. Motivational as all hell.
Also, getting proper running clothes made a HUGE difference. I still look like a JigglyPuff, but at least I’m comfortable. As comfortable as I can be while convinced I’m dying, anyway. And, I got a Jillian Michaels Shred It With Weights DVD for every other day. I recommend it, because it’s like a whole-body thing and so it’s easier and more fun than doing the same old bicep curls and whatnot. Confession: I totally talk to Jillian the whole time, like “Are you kidding me? Do what now?” or “You’re trying to kill me. I know that you secretly hate fat people and so you’re trying to kill us. BUT IT WON”T WORK JILLIAN! I’m still here!” Hey, whatever gets you through, you know?
