Dani Joy´s Springy Journal #2 - A little set back. Renewed motivation!

I had a little set back yesterday, by the name of company. No, it´s not their fault. Before, I would have been able to say "no" , but one lick had me in.


Not only did I lick the spatula, I had one. Also, I think what has got me a pound up today, is water retention from some olives I ate. Yes, olives cause you to retain water because of their sodium content.
 Double Uuuuhhhggg!!
Needless to say, that was my unplanned free day. No more for me this week!

My plan? Get to my plan! I am more motivated by you all, and Sarah´s video! I want to count my calories better, and add more high intensity workouts. My schedule is really full, but I am going to try.

Yesterday, I jogged to my English class by the long way, getting a good 15 minute jog in. Also, earlier I had jogged to the store getting at least 10 minutes in there. But it just wasn´t enough. I need more to keep my metabolism burning the fat.

Today, I plan to do Jillian´s Metabolsim Boost dvd, with some more core and lower body strength training from her other dvd No more Trouble Zones. Maybe, even a jog later in the evening. (Man, wish we could jog together! When do you do your best jogging?)

So my BMR is around 1300 calories. I need to eat that many, then burn about 500 calories to lose weight. Is that right, Sarah? How do you count calories in homemade meals? This has been my problem.

Well, I pray to get a Calorie calculator Watch thingy this weekend with my teaching money. Any suggestions? Can´t wait. I have been wanting one since Sarah got one for her birthday last year.

Keep on motivating each other. You all are doing great! I am so encouraged and motivated. I totally woke up down about yesterday, but now that´s all turned around after praying and reading your comments! AWESOME!!!

Big Springy Hugs,

Dani Joy
