I'm trying to eat more calories to cover my workouts in addition to my 1210 daily. I'm just not hungry for them. Maybe I'll start adding wheat germ to things. But I feel conflicted about that. I'm eating when i'm hungry. I'm making healthy choices. I'm workout out daily. Why force myself to eat more than my belly wants, just because the website calorie tracker tells me I should. I want to lose weight here.
Maybe a better option for me is to allow myself one big "cheat meal" per week. It won't show up on my daily progress reports, but in the big picture it might even out. I'll look underfed most days, and like a glutton once a week or so. I think I'd be happiest with this routine - especially since Indian buffet is my favorite thing on earth. Cannolis aren't so bad either.
I bought a heart monitor today. It was cheap ($28), and the only one WalMart had. I was just so eager to have one ASAP that I went to the closest place I thought I'd find one. I've decided to return it tomorrow and drive a little farther to get a good one. (I hear Polar is a good brand.) In the meantime, I'm not sure I have the right calorie info for my exercise today. The Firm Cardio w/ Weights: 45 min mixing up high step, aerobics, weights and calisthenics, then 8-ish min ab crunches. Man, I want a HRM to know what I'm burning!
