Still on my little rampage...while I haven't made it to yoga everyday (they closed early on the Labor Day Weekend and I didn't know and missed a few days), I have managed to stay off caffeine.  It's been huge for me!

So I don't necessarily love my calorie counter app.  I was trying to follow it's guidelines for a few days (claimed I needed 1182 calories a day + whatever I burned off during exercise) and I ended up gaining 2 pounds.  I think I'm eating more calories then I need...actually I know I am because I would not normally eat all those calories on my own; normally I would eat about 1250 a day with exercise, a little less without.  So 1182 calories plus 704 (if I ran and did yoga for example) is too much.  So yesterday I got pissed about it and just ate what I would've eaten if I didn't have a calorie counter and this morning the scale is back down.  Anyway, I'm warning you now because tomorrow I will post my weight and you'll see that I didn't lose any weight this week.  It's okay- it was a learning experience and I still worked out quite a bit this week and so I still feel good.

I'm an active girl.  I do massage for 6 hours a day.  I run.  I do yoga.  I try to run and do yoga everyday- doesn't happen everyday, but that's okay.  I'll get there.  I like being active.  I realized yesterday during one of my massages that massaging for 6 hours a day is getting easier, the better shape my body is getting in to.  I can last longer; I'm not as worn out.  It feels good.  As soon as I'm able to get a second job- I want to start getting massages on a weekly basis too. I can't afford them now, but I know they will help my body tremendously.  The fun ways you can spoil yourself when you have extra money... :)

Other than that ladies- I've got NOTHING.  Been trying to catch up on Sons of Anarchy from last season because the new season started last night.  Have an interview for a job in LA today- keeping my fingers crossed because it's a new job and a new start if I get it.  I'd have to move to LA- but that might not be the worst thing that could happen to me.  I've already had a phone interview- now on to step 2.  It's a marketing director position- could be good for me.  It's a 'real' job with benefits and vacation- which is about the only thing I care about at this point.  If I don't get it- I won't be upset.  I like where I live and I actually don't mind the massage job.  It's low stress and easy $$...but we'll see!

Keeping my fingers crossed!




  1. Sounds great, Diz! I like that this new job prospect is a take-it-or-leave-it for you. I hope it makes life a little less stressful. Keep up the rampage! =)


  2. Hang in there, Diz. I have faith in you. :)

  3. Fingers crossed on the new job! And yeah, most calorie counter apps have me supposedly able to eat WAY more than what experience has taught me. In theory I should be able to eat 1600 calories a day at my current activity level and lose weight, but I can guarantee you if I did that for a week you'd be peeling me off the ceiling come weigh-in day... and NOT for good reasons.
