Ok, a nutritionist once told me... "a calorie is a calorie is a calorie." I protested! I said that 100 calories of apple is better than 100 calories of chocolate cake. And she said it's the same. No way! Cannot be! Maybe she didn't understand what I was trying to say, and she was trying to prove her calorie theory. But this is what I meant and see if you agree.
- First of all, who can eat only 100 calories of chocolate cake? That's be like a 16th of an inch slice. Or less.
- That is not satisfying.
- Now 100 calories of apple, fills you right up. You probably would't binge on apples, would you?
- 100 calories of cake multiplies right around the hips.
- 100 calories of apple goes right through you, all that fibre.
And I have another question.
myfitnesspal(dot)com tells me that acording to my personal data, I can eat 2080 caolories in a day, burn 1170 calories a week and lose 1 lbs/week. Does this really mean regardless of where my calories are coming from? And what do they mean when they tell me I've earned an amount of calories because I exercised. Does this mean I'm going to lose more because I haven't gone over 1720 calories per day? And because I exercised?
Yup, I'll have to see it to believe it
And, I know that not everyone uses this tool, so maybe noone knows what I'm talking about! :) Just a little ramble.
I've been doing the C25K week one for 2 weeks now. I did it yesterday morning and was going to do it again tonight. (I heard you were only supposed to do it every second day:) I couldn't do it! The first running minute was ok. The second I got half way through, and the third I barely started. My calves and shins were burning! They hurt so bad, I just couldn't run anymore. Maybe that's why they tell you three times a week. So, I'm gonna rest my calves and try again on Sunday. Maybe, after 2 weeks of week one I will get to week two!
On another note...
I love what Nancy Leigh DeMoss said on her facebook page today.
And with that ... Good night!
