Calories are DOWN, but weight is UP
I'm absolutely ranvenous today. Maybe it's because my calories were so low yesterday - only 1488. Not bad, eh? I'll somehow get through today without going over the edge, but no 1500 calories for me today!
Walked the last leg to work today and finally used MapQuest to find out the distance from the BART station to work - 1.5 miles! Yippee! I've walked a lot of miles lately. :)
Weight this morning was a whopping 147.2! Ack!!! That's over the maximum I'm allowed (147). All this dieting and I am making NO progress. I think I need to set up an appointment to see a trainer and have a body composition test done. But I'm afraid I'll have gained fat! Double ack! I'm doing so horribly. :(
Finished The DaVinci Code: A Quest for Answers today that Jane gave out at church on Sabbath.
Had time to stop at Starbucks and work on my Purpose Driven Life lesson for the day. It's a pain to take notes, but it does help me get more out of it.
A cool thing on the low-carb front - today I received a note from Jimmy Moore by snail mail thanking me for being such a faithful reader of his blog (the pleasure's all mine!), and enclosed was a card for one free entree at Denny's, drink included. Jazzin'! There's a Denny's on my way to work, a 10 minute walk from the BART station, and last I checked they had a low-carb menu, though that was a while ago. Hope they still have it!
New people hired at work and in the process of training; that's why the overtime ended. As I stated in that post, it makes me both happy and sad.
Today was a mail run into the City; tomorrow is groceries, and then I will hit the gym on Thursday. I try to space my workouts with two days between when I can only go twice in the week, and then stuff everything else around it.
