I’m not happy about this. I gained 1.4 lbs this week. I’m trying. I really, really am – but while I’ve increased my intake of exercise – I’ve also increased my intake calories. A few observations – swimming makes me hungry. Running bleachers makes me hungry. But so does walking, talking and sleeping. So here we go again – this week’s goal is to increase my workouts to 90 minutes per day and keep my net calories to 1200 per day. Several of you mentioned that you think 1200 net calories per day is not enough. It is. Really. I just measured myself and I’m 62.25 inches tall (we’ll just round that up to 5’3” for fun) and I weigh 136.6 lbs. See that picture of me to screen left? I’m about 124 in that picture. My intermediate goal is 120 lbs. Maybe if 46% of my diet wasn’t fat I’d get there a little faster.
And while I belong to a legion of followers who would willing lick Dooce’s feet – Let’s just get one thing straight – I am the licker.
