Day off tomorrow

Decided to take the day off tomorrow. Looking forward to it. Not sure what I'm going to do, other than go see my trainer at noon. I am hating my "diet" this week. More than that I am hating how few calories I seem to burn. It is a real eye opener. You always see that the recommended daily calorie allowance for females is around 2000. According to the bodybugg, for me to burn 2000 calories a day I either need to be really active all day long (that means little relaxing time....just moving a bit all the time) or exercise at least 30 minutes daily plus activity during the day and evening....this does allow for a bit of sitting there and doing nothing. It's just discouraging for someone who likes to eat as much as I do =). I guess this is what happens when you get OLD. And it explains why I have been very slowly gaining weight over the past 2 years. I have a feeling tomorrow that I won't have made much progress this week. I feel very big and bloated at the moment. Lovely feeling. Guess we'll see. Update tomorrow. Gonna run and lay in bed and read. Have a lovely day!

You might be surprised when you meet your trainer. Who knows? I can feel for you. Welcome to my world for the last 30 years. It is a constant battle. (blah) Anyway hang in there. I have today off too but I watch little ones for the day. Guess that is nothing new to you,huh? Gotta run.
