My knee injury of last November I projected would take a year to a year 1/2 to heal and its been 8 months now and it is just beginning to feel better. I tried 5 or 6 weeks ago to do squats and it made my knee worse. I tried doing a lot of squats last night and my knee seems okay. Of course, it's sensitive to re-injury and I need to be careful and it still has pains and problems, but I think I might be able to start doing gentle exercises again. This would be a great time to motivate myself.
So, for the zillionth time, I'm telling myself to log my food on MFP (myfitnesspal).
I started yesterday and then what did hubby do but fix a whole box of brownie mix filling the house with yummyness AND eating it all, by himself! That's two whole boxes of brownie mix in two days he ate! How can he do that! It's a good thing that I'm not that pulled into a desire for sweets.
So I've had one good day down. Can I do another?
I remember when I quit my diet and that was when I had reached the 22 lb weight loss and I was working out hard every day for 28 days and eating well and I couldn't seem to loose one more lb. I got so discouraged.
Thinking on loosing weight, because 3,500 calories equals about 1 pound of fat, I need to burn 3,500 calories more than I take in to lose 1 pound. So if I cut 500 calories each day, I would lose about 1 pound a week (500 calories x 7 days = 3,500 calories).
I wonder how hard I would have to work out each day to burn 500 calories more a day than I used to burn? Of course, isn't metabolism in there somehow? When I work out more, it raises my metabolism and I burn more calories. This analysis is getting too complicated now!
I read that walking a mile burns 100 calories. I guess that depends on how much you weigh.
I've wanted to get one of those fitbit things that calculates how many calories I'm burning or counts steps or whatever it does. I think they have become more affordable. I just cannot have everything I want, huh?
Well, that's about it for my blabbering analyzing for now!
