After the whole second post on Friday thing I hope you’re not sick of me (or Brad hehehe.) I’m on week two of my two week no exercise sentence. I’m getting kind of antsy.
Yesterday I was working the Terry Fox Run at our University. Before we got started my team members were playing around with a soccer ball. I stood to the side, arms crossed, staring at said ball, or off into space. They kicked it to me anyways, I kicked it back. Le sigh … I couldn’t really join in and show off my bend it like Beckham moves. (I lie I have none of those moves but since I didn’t participate I could easily be all like “I’m awesome with a soccer ball but I can’t show you my awesome moves because I have a concussion.”)
Anyhoo. We were in charge of cheering … and cheer we did … AND high fived!
Let’s move on to the part of this post that matches the title – it’s about weightloss.
A couple weeks ago someone wrote to me that in order to lose weight I needed to incur a calorie deficit.
I can’t find exactly where/ who wrote that (Twitter? Facebook? blog post?) so if it was you, identify yourself!!!!
I hadn’t really thought about weight loss that way. In fact I didn’t have much of a weight loss philosophy. The only thing I was sure of was that I was not going to count calories. Nope. Wasn’t doing it. You could torture me but I would not give in ….. ummmmm y’all see where this is going right?
After must peer pressure (of the good kind if there is in fact a good kind) I’ve joined My Fitness Pal. So, um, yeah, I guess I’m counting calories. And apparently you can follow people on it (i.e. use it as another social media site) so if you want to see all the crappy food I eat you can find me under the username lifeafterbagels.
I should tell you two things if you’re going to find me:
- I’ve started eating fish. I don’t talk much about vegetarianism on this blog, in fact I’ve posted meat recipes because I still cook it for Brad. But I had been eating vegetarian for many years and have recently decided to add fish back to my diet. This may stick, this may not. We’ll see and I’ll let you know.
- I’m still trying to get this whole food thing on track so you may very well find pizza (like Saturday) or chips (like yesterday) or bagels (mmmmmm bagels!). I’m far from perfect, obviously. You don’t gain 25lbs by being on your game.
Any former vegetarians that have gone pescetarian? Tips for using My Fitness Pal?
