What do I really want?

Friday, March 19, 2010 at 12:56 AM filed under Diet & Nutrition postings
I really want to be a comfortable size 4, which means at least a 10 lb weight loss.  At 2 lbs per week I have a limit of 950 net calories per day.  Which means...I eat 1400 and burn at least 450 calories exercising.  So 1400 calories of food to eat and I run 4 miles and do weights.  That's not so bad!  4 miles a day or an hour of cross training. why is this so hard?  It's really simple, really.  If I do my work for the day, I feel good.  Working towards what I want and what I've wanted for a very long time.  If I don't, if I'm tired, I feel like crap.  It's that I'm sending myself to blissful sleep.  ATTAINABLE goals.  Tomorrow, 1400 calories and yoga at night and walking home afterwards.

Keeping track of all these calories and snacky snacks is getting annoying...but it's supposed to help me keep track and it's serving it's purpose.  I'm doing a good job. Yes, I give myself pep talks.
