Day Thirty-Four

March 25th, 2016 at 11:12 pm

Calories: 1644

I used a calculator to find that a woman of my age, at my level of activity, should consume 1493 calories per day to lose weight. That's about what I thought, very close to my personal goal of 1400. But since I'm so hungry, and therefore cheating, maybe I'll take up FF's suggestion and up my allowance a little.

No financial activity today except $1.50 for a load of laundry.

Oh, and I saw on my online bank account that I was charged twice for the birth certificate -- or at least two charges are pending. I had to go through the process twice because THEY said it didn't go through. Not happy. I sent them an email, but I probably won't get a real answer for a few days.

Other than doing the laundry, I didn't leave my condo today. I didn't do all of the cooking I planned on, but made steps -- i.e. I didn't make the quiche but I fried the bacon -- I didn't make the soup but boiled the carrots. I will get those things done tomorrow. I need to make granola, too.

Variables spending is 81% and less than a week to go. I have plenty of food and gas -- but I do need to pick up some dry cleaning tomorrow, so I'm not home free.

This year I have no plans for Easter. I usually do the Easter bunny/egg hunt thing with the grandkids, but they are on their way to Florida. I haven't pushed myself to join in on someone else's holiday -- so I've decided to make Sunday kind of a spiritual retreat day -- a day to pause and reflect. I'll let you know if I come up with anything earthshaking!

    Hope upping the calories a little helps. Sometimes baby steps...I am proud of you for not giving up.

    I donated some money to a gofundme campaign a few weeks ago - it didn't look like it had gone through, so I tried a second time. It ended up going through twice. I whacked some moles and let it go. Smile

    You're supposed to be eating your exercise calories to lose weight. I am eating 1200 a day to lose weight but then eating what I exercise. I found if i didn't the weight didn't come off.

    I am admittedly not exercising much. The weather has been uncooperative. But I think it is pretty well documented that exercise doesn't really help much with weight loss -- great for you health-wise, and should be done for myriad reasons, but for weight loss it takes much more time and commitment than most anyone is willing/able to do. There's a PBS show on it, check it out! (Sorry, can't remember the name of it!)
