Eat more!

That's what yesterday's Spark People page is saying. I really went under my calories yesterday because I never ate lunch. I'm still trying to establish my new routine with working for myself and suddenly it was 5:00.

I'm not going to make a habit of going under (or over!) my calories but sometimes it just doesn't seem logical to me to eat if I'm not hungry. I know all about fueling the metabolism and all that. I'm thinking I'll add some peanut butter or protein powder to my oatmeal and then maybe eat a little larger snack. I know I need it because I can feel it when my food wears off in the pool.

I swam 40 minutes this morning and will continue to do that until I can meet with my coach again next week to establish a lower body weight routine. We've already done upper body and abs but as you can imagine, he's a busy man this week. It was 14 this morning AND I had an 11:00 meeting. I thought about putting it off until the afternoon but that's dangerous so I just did it and it felt great. I was the only one in the pool for a while then had a 10 minute soak in the hot tub as my reward.

Not a very exciting post today but I'm making a point to post and update my calorie count every day even if it's boring! :)

Keep on keepin' on.


  1. Hey, sounds like you're hard at it to me. Keep it up.

  2. Sounds familiar. Sounds like you're still doing alright though. Good job!

  3. Hi there: I am trying to lose 100 pounds this year, too! Good luck.

    We can do it! :)

  4. Good going, Tina, for recognizing the "danger" and getting to the gym in the morning! I'm proud of you!!!

  5. I think if you're consistently not hungry then low calories can be a problem. If it's happening once in a while, eh. To me that's like calories going over once in a while... no biggie unless it becomes a pattern. Great job on getting that workout in!
