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!
