Yep. That’s up 6 pounds since the last time I posted. Good grief. Oh, well. At least it’s still down 11.2 pounds from when I posted in April.
You may have noticed the weight loss ticker at the top of the page. It says I’ve lost zero pounds because it’s synced up with my My Fitness Pal account. I learned about My Fitness Pal when I was perusing someone else’s blog. It’s free, and it’s easy to use. I can track the food I eat as well as the exercise I do.
One of my favorite things about My Fitness Pal is that at the end of the day it says something to the effect of “You will weigh X in 5 weeks if every day is like today.” That number either goes up or down. After a day filled with not-so-good choices, I was shocked to see that I could gain over 12 pounds in 5 weeks if every day were like that day.
Joseph and I went to the gym today. We did cardio for 10 minutes and then did a round of weight machines. When we got home, we played Just Dance on the Wii for about 15 minutes. We we were worn out after just 15 minutes of dancing! Some people may be skeptical about a video game being a workout. I challenge them to play Just Dance!
We had a little incident last night that made me sad and gave me a little extra motivation today. We were picking up dinner to go at a Chinese restaurant, and there were two little kids playing as their mom prepared our food. They made fun of us for being fat. They held their arms out like gorillas and called us fat people. That made me really sad. It’s been years since I’ve really been picked on like that, and I hope it never happens again. We live in a cruel world, not at all what God intended. Moments like that make me long for a sin-free world. Maybe I won’t be so chubby when we get there. :O)
