Who knew griping burned so many calories?!

Today’s weight: 158. Yeah baby!


So I guess all that bitching and moaning yesterday really paid off! I’m down to 158 as of this morning, and as a result, my mood is a lot better. Of course I’m sure that having Jillian kick my tail during the Shred had nothing to do with the loss, or the fact that I have eaten more vegetables in the last 48 hours than I’ve eaten in a year has nothing to do with it either. If complaining really burned calories, I’d be a stick.  Tonight I’ve got a date with Eli the elliptical and I’ve got my food planned for the whole day.  This is one thing I’m learning on iChange – to really plan my food and make sure I’ve got all the bases covered, and I have to say I think it helps.  There’s no room for those “surprises” that sometimes pop up during the day like the cookies a coworker brings, or the uneaten cupcake that your daughter brings home from school because it was so-and-so’s birthday.  From breakfast to dinner and all the snacks in between, I know what I’ll be eating at any point during the day. 

Oh, iChange is opening another 30 day group session on Monday the 18th if anyone is interested. They have had such good reviews from the first group, that they added two more groups (I’m in the second group) with the third group starting on Monday.  My impression so far of iChange is if Facebook and Sparkpeople got married and had a kid, it would be iChange.  Lots of motivation and encouragement! The site is new and still working out some kinks, but overall it’s been good so far.  I have a goal of losing 10 pounds this month, so at the end of the 30 days, we’ll see how far I have come. 

Well, that’s all I’ve got for now.  I hope you all have a super-duper day!!  😛

  1. Oh man I’m jealous! Well, if being in a foul mood burns calories, I bet I’ll have you beat by tomorrow. Of course, I am trying to sooth my foul mood by eating various and sundry healthy snack items, so I don’t know. Maybe I’ll go looking for some of those runner’s endorphins later today…

    But really, I’m excited for you for what you’re learning on iChange.
