Fat Chick vs. Food - Week Two

Here we are at week two! You can tell I’m enthusiastic by the exclamation point, right?! Right?!! And Casey at Hasay is back! To check on the Hasayers a year after starting their club, pop on over for a visit.

I met with Trainer Lady this week for an assessment. As part of the boot camp/getoffyourfatassalready classes she is hosting (starts next week) she has to assess everyone so we know where our starting place is. I have the unfortunate advantage of having a comparable; the assessment I had in January when I started my fitness plan and then the reassessment I had in March when I was kicking all kinds of ass.

I am now back up to only one pound shy of what I weighed in MARCH. Ugh. My fitness level is about the same or has even improved a little though, so that DID make me feel somewhat better about completly SUCKING this summer. I haven’t totally given up on the exercise. The problem is clearly the food. I like food. Food is good. Everything is always so much better when you get to have some bacon.

I haven’t been going to Trainer Lady much this summer, and after our meeting last week I think she gets that I need a kick in the ass. So she gave me homework. It was to figure out how many calories I will burn if I take the stairs at work instead of the elevator. That’s when I found this - http://www.caloriesperhour.com/index_burn.php

The most hysterical calorie counter EVER. It seriously has a function for every possible activity known to man. If I throw a hammer and then go polka dancing for twenty minutes, I will have burned 205 calories! If I fold me some laundry and then ride a unicycle for 15 minutes, I’m 149 calories down! It’s totally my new favorite website.

I’m going to really try and focus on the food part this week. That definitely seems to be my weakness. I have a ridiculously healthy eating boss, so maybe I’ll just follow her around at lunch and eat grass with her for a week. Sounds good, right?! The exclamation point says so!!

I just burned 43 calories writing this blog. Pass the bacon.

I'm going to have to check out that website. Sounds like I could waste a ton of time there!

Good luck with the boot camp!

What a coincidence. I just passed you the bacon this morning. But we did some light child care (181 calories) and some socializing (109 calories) so I think we're good.

I live for food. I'd say I live for my kids, but eating them is frowned upon. I just spent 30 minutes folding clothes, so I'm down 57 calories. Time for a quesadilla.

Cool calculator. I've totally sucked. I don't even want to talk about it.

Excellent work!

Can you imagine being the person who has to dance the freakin' polka so they can measure such things! I'd rather ride the unicycle while throwing hammers! ;)

Hah, don't even get me started on that calorie counting. I swear, I would dump Jamie's ass and marry food in a second if it were available. He loves food as much as I do so maybe we could work some kind of polygamist relationship out with food.

Here's to getting back at it. I would seriously work out for 8 hours a day if it meant I could eat what I wanted. I'm kind of doing that already, working out for an hour and just eating what I want (in moderate moderation). Screw it. Food wins.

Uhm, my word verification is "pubeglat" what the hell is that and can I floss with it?

This reminds me of the wonderful scene in Julie and Julia where Meryl Streep tells Stanley Tucci she loves food.

Bacon...mmmm.

Good luck with boot camp!
