Wow, I’m in a bad mood lately.
I should have realised this, because for some reason my horoscope, which I get delivered to my phone daily…has been stuck on the same horoscope for 3 days. It says I should be careful with people because I am testy. Ha.
Diet, I do need to lose some weight and it irks me.
I signed up with Spark People…. It is a good site, it is completely free…but it is filled with a lot of graphics, and places to go and lots of popups. I managed to do about 3 days of it until I got really fed up.
So, next stop Fit Day. Also free. But again with the advertisements…more so than Spark People. I lasted there one day.
In desperation, I tried Nutridiary. This is how I lost weight the first time. My computer has been acting up and at first I could not log in, but then today the site was working fine. Less advertisements, a cleaner interface, and one thing that I like is that when you do enter exercise Nutridiary adds back some calories for you, so that on days that I do run 6-8 miles, I am not stuck being told I overate when I eat 2000 calories. (I burn 800 running 8 miles.) It has great graphs, which the other sites have as well, but…if I hover on my weight on Nutridiary, it also shows my BMI. At Spark People this requires 2 different graphs.
I’m thinking about trying the “Shakology” that my friend sells. I’m just not 100% convinced that it is any better than a regular reasonable diet. But who knows.
Work seems to be going fine. I have been a bit neglectful of some things and I will be in quite a state on tuesday morning because I have a 10 minute presentation to give at 9 am, and I forgot to put it together on Friday. Friday I was in total “holiday Mode” and could barely concentrate on anything. So, oh well, luckily, I have all the slides prepared, I think, and all I have to do is put the two together, with the video…
My Massage Therapist got a little irritable with me, because it seems she did kind of decide just to tell me all sorts of things that my old Physical Therapist didn’t really say. So that is frustrating. So I have a funny feeling this old PT coaching me will kind of blow up in my face. MT is a lovely lady and a pretty good friend, but, I felt really kind of betrayed by her, she was spouting out a lot of advice, and made me feel like an idiot. (I mean really does any adult these days need to be told to eat more fruits and vegetables? like this idea has not occurred to me?) while she is eating chocolate chip cookies….
But I need some good coaching, AND some weight loss if I am ever going to get anywhere.
Something tells me that My PT might have had a better way to discuss this with me, since I have never seen him eat a cookie, ever…
