Today I’m headed back to California! Ben and I have a super early flight out of Sarasota then a layover before finally getting back to Orange County. I am very excited to be home! But, not as excited about living in airplanes and airports all day. This time I’m not even going to try and be productive – it’s all trash mags and naps for the grand finale of my trip!
Welcome to the first round of Weight Loss Wednesday of 2012! Losing a few Elle Bees would be a really great thing for my running life.
But, how the hell does one lose weight? I’ve heard there are a few ways…
A. Go on Survivor. This is a sure fire way to not only lose weight, but possibly get on tragic reality TV spin-off and/or get invited to D list award shows. (image source)
B. Watch Tosh.O after dinner. This show has a 84% likelihood of making anyone barf. It’s gross.
C. Count Calories. Bah. The dreaded realistic suggestion.
If you want to lose weight you gotta eat less calories than you burn. It’s science. You don’t have to count calories to lose weight – you can focus on eating clean or cutting back on junk food, but it definitely is a sure fire way to weight loss.
This website is a good one for checking how many calories you should be eating a day: Daily Calorie Needs
The site said I should eat about 2000 calories a day to maintain. Subtract about 250 a day to lose without getting to crazy with it and/or hating your life and ending up at Yogurtland in the middle of the night shoveling a bucket of fro-yo into your face and no dignity
not that I’ve done that.
Question: Do you count calories?
Do you count sheep?
Do you count to 10 before you scream at someone?
I should do number 1 and 3 of these, but don’t.
I’m going to count calories for the next seven days to get an idea of what I’m eating. Someone get me a calculator please!
