Yay for journal visitors and inspiration!
I freakin thought I was underpaid.. That's disappointing. I really want to think these are really good people. And the thing is- I do love the children and if it was a matter of not HAVING the money, I wouldn't mind at all, but I don't think that's the case.. Ah well.. I won't worry about it too much- it's their karma, I suppose..
No, I didn't get to Zumba again like a big loser. I dunno what my deal is with getting in the cross training. I run 4-5 days and yoga about 4, but definitely want a cardio xtrain on 1 or 2 of my days off running. I can't go tonight because it's advanced yoga night at the studio and I want to work on my handstand, but there is 'ZumbaTone' tomorrow at noon and I can't run tomorrow morning, so I'll plan on going to that. That way it's a Plan. And I wrote it here, so maybe it'll happen.. ha!
So I can't run tomorrow morning BECAUSE I'm getting a 'Metabolism Test' done at the Wellness Center and cannot eat, workout, or have caffeine beforehand. I want to know, now that I'm in Phase 3, how many calories I need a day to MAINTAIN my weight. So far, P3 is probably even harder than P2 for me.. It seems like the last 4 or so years, I've just continually fluctuated 4-5 pounds all the time. Sometimes more even. Like gain 3lbs on the weekend and lose it during the week. (it's so unfair that it takes like double the time to undo progress than to make it! at least for me, I eat horribly 1 to 2 days and it takes a WEEK to offset the damage!) When I go to a daily caloric calculator on the net, I put in 27 years, 130lbs, 5'4'' and it tells me I can eat like 2000 calories/day to maintain my weight (with intense exercise 5x/week and 1900 with "exercise" 5x/week). There's NO WAY I feel like I could eat that much and maintain. So, I am Very curious to know what they tell me tomorrow..
It's our one year anniversary tomorrow too! My partner is taking those two grad classes though which end Friday, so he'll be all stressed and studying while I go to a poetry reading with a friend anyway, but I thought I'd mention it. We're totally low key about that kind of thing, so we'll just maybe get sushi this weekend or something to celebrate that AND his classes being done! (He's thinking two As and I'm oh-so-proud!
Have a great hump day, yall!
