Yea, I still workout....

I havn't complained latley about working out. I'm still doing it. Every day. Five days a week. I joined that spark people website, which is hella fun. You track your nutrition, and your fitness. Set goals, and it will tell you, woa you have burned too many calories for you diet eat more. It gives you bar graphs and food reports, to show your progress.

Tells you that you have run 92 miles in the last month. (yayyyy)

Or, you need to eat more carbs. Yes, I had to eat more carbs! Awesome!

But then its frustrating too, because I have to increase my calories to accomodate my workouts, which seems easy. But you need 500 more calories, what do you eat? Well sometimes I'll eat a block of cheese. (embaressed grin....)

Or you can workout less. If I cut my workouts, I can only eat 1200 calories a day. Who wants to do that? Thats only 400 calories a meal! Good luck! I eat a salad with cheese, light italian, and turkey meatballs, and thats 400 calories. I'm not eating less, thank you.

I need more fat, so i started eating avocados. I start to love them. Guess what? They are hella fattening. It's seriously a job to balance everything. I don't understand why either. I guess the first 70lbs was kinda easy considering I didn't really try other than working out. Now its like my second job.

I run 4 miles a day on my lunch break. To me its running, it's a 12 minute mile averaged over 50 minutes.

After work I do a half hour sometimes thats 3 miles of running, sometimes its a half hour on the eliptical, or stationary bike.

Then I do a half hour of abs/weights. Since I've been doing the abs/weights over the last month, I've gained weight. Of course one would say this is muscle. I don't care what it is. I don't like it.

Last week I did the double workout only twice because I have been burning double the calories I need to burn to lose weight.

I need to hire a personal trainer. I need Bob or Jillian. Fo realz.

Good news! My manfriend got a new job at a really important hospital around here that I wont mention but if your from here you know what it is. It's pretty exciting for him, and I'm really happy because its a foot in the door, and something he really wants!

Then I'm sad for me cus its all kinds of weird hours, and every other weekend, and we dont see each other much as it is, and I feel awful for mentioning it, but its true.
