I went to the chiropractor at lunch yesterday. He said I was perfect! Well, he said my spine is perfect, but I will take it. Apparently, I have a very straight spine and even hips. Good to know. No arthritis, no degeneration, no nothing. So, the issues I'm having are muscular and should go away with a little bit of treatment and TLC. YAY!!
I woke up for yoga this morning, but decided that it with my back hurting still, it would be silly to do morning yoga. I decided to move this particular activity to next week. That said, I think it WOULD be beneficial to do evening yoga, epecially on nights I don't Jazzercise. Like tonight. Hmmm...I will let you know how that turns out.
It is AMAZING the difference a day of tracking my food makes. I feel so much more in control! Technically, I allow myself anything I want to eat, it just has to fit into the calories for the day. It really works for me. So, where I have been eating several pieces of chocolate after dinner each night, last night I had a junior sugar daddy and one piece of chocolate because that is what fit into my calorie schedule. I didn't feel deprived, but I feel in control.
I'm shooting for an 800 calorie deficit each day, so I would like to burn 2400 and consume 1600. Yesterday, I ended up burning 2546 and consuming 1575 for a deficit of 971. Good day! Now I just have to string MANY of these kinds of days together. :) Century Club...here I come!! (I still have to work off some of the chocolate bloat from the weekend though...)
I LOVE cheese. I purchased some cheese at the store this weekend, but since I usually shop at Target, it wasn't anything that exotic. I had a cheese & cracker selection for dinner last night that included smoked cheddar (not my favorite), harvarti, semisoft goat cheese, & gouda. It was delicious! But I want some good, stinky cheese. My problem is that I don't know what kinds to get. I go to a place with a big selection like Central Market and I just don't know. Any of you love cheese and can give me some pointers? I tend to like the softer stuff as opposed to the really hard. And I noticed last night that I enjoyed the sweet flavor of the goat cheese a lot...much more than the smoky flavor of the cheddar. Anyway, if you have any suggestions, let me know!
