Good morning peeps!
So yesterday I found myself struggling a bit with a couple good problems to have….I think.
I have had 3 solid days or exercise and yesterday, although eating, found myself legitimately hungry. Nutrition has always been a struggle, eating the right amount of protein, fat and carbohydrates because I know this plays a part. I am also struggling to learn this whole Myfitnesspal calories goal, calories consumed minus exercise equals net and having it linked with my fitbit. I spent the better part of 2 hours last night reading posts, about to give up when finally I found a response to a post that broke it down “Barney” style for me. My net calories should always be equal to or less than my goal, but not too much less or my body goes into starvation mode. I also realized that I had not updated my goals since about 1.5 years ago so I did that and a light bulb moment, why I was starving made a bit more sense, off to the kitchen for a tablespoon of peanut butter and almonds, I was under my calorie goal, but didn’t want to eat that before bed. I have made the decision to search for a nutritionist in the Vancouver area, so if you know of a great one please comment below!
I have had 3 solid days of 30-60 mins of exercise. I got out of bed this morning and walking, showering, and getting dressed were not easy tasks! I sunk my achy body to the floor and began to roll out my muscles and swear words began to exit my mouth, thank lord I live alone. I was a lady with the vocabulary of a well-educated sailor. I reached my step goal with 10,450 steps! Yay! The last thing I feel like doing today is exercising, but I know that you just have to keep going, so that is what I will do!
I walked in to an office full of bite size and king size chocolate bars this morning, devil on my shoulder….
