I signed up with MyFitnessPal and MapMyWalk, mainly because two of you told me to. Also, their blackberry apps are free. I'm excited to have a way to keep track of the things I eat, the exercises I do, the water I drink, the calories I burn.
I'm excited to be holding myself accountable, to be aiming for a goal. And you know what? This goal is something I have absolute control over, which feels very empowering after a year of feeling sorta powerless when it comes to my body.
Now, I'm not hard core (yet), but I walked 3/4 of a mile with dogface this morning, and I've done 20 jumping jacks and 40 crunches. I'm consciously thinking about the repercussions of my food choices (even if you couldn't tell by the way I picked bacon over ham for my breakfast this morning - gotta live a little, you know?).
I've got a question - if my goal calories are 1200, and I burn 300, do I have to eat 1500 for the day? Is that how that's supposed to work?
I'm gonna do this. I'm going to lose ____ inches/pounds, and I'm going to look fan-fucking-tastic in that bridesmaid's dress come October. It's going to happen.
(I'm >-< this close to doing the Zumba. Will narrow down facility search/details today - unless Jimi springs for that YMCA membership, in which case, fuck some Zumba, I'm going swimming and to WATER Zumba! Why is the YMCA a million dollars? Okay, it's not a million dollars, but I'm broke and that joining fee makes my face sad.)
