I want to be like Angelina Jolie training for Tomb Raider or something. I didn't feel up to exercising for an hour after doing yard work this morning but did 1 hr of cardio anyway. I doubt Angie would do yard work to prep for a movie but this isn't just laying there talking to the plants and gently pulling weeds. It's pulling hard on an iron rake to yank roots out of the ground, digging, pushing, sawing, dragging, etc. Well anyway it all amounts to several hours of high to moderate cardio activity which hopefully will burn calories (now when will I see results?)

My PT person said I have 28% body fat and need to be below 20%.  They said my food intake was good but to have carbs and protein at every meal (I had skipped the carbs at some meals). I think I'll keep tabs of servings and calories by doing Weight Watchers again (but no cheating this time). Also, my goal has been to do PT twice a week and cardio 5 times a week (while I'm off work). On PT days my goal is to do 30 min. (or more, they said--we'll see) of cardio and on non-PT days doing an hour of cardio. The fact that I will also probably be doing yard work on non-PT days might make it hard to do a full hour of cardio and be able to move the next day b/c yard work always makes my back hurt but I'll just do my best. Also she said that on the weekend I can reward myself. That doesn't mean bing but she said I could have chocolate cake if I wanted--that my body has to remember how to burn that kind of thing.

I hope I didn't screw everything up w/ the tater tots, hollandaise sauce and strawberry shortcake. I exercised twice today (will try to do that 5 times a week all month long ) but I feel I should have exercised even more to make up for the extra calories.

I was watching Dead Like Me on tv and the girl in the show is so skinny you can se the veins in her upper arms. There are veins in your upper arms? I want to lose weight and get toned but even at my best I won't be like that b/c of body chemistry but mostly b/c I love food. My Grandad said "Most people live to eat, I eat to live." Then he went and had a huge ice cream sundae, which he wouldn't share with us, and when dinner was served 15 minutes later he didn't eat half of it (b/c he had ruined his appetite) and said "I just never have a big appetite. I don't need much." So he was deluding himself, but I am not; I live to eat (and see my kitties and stuff but I do love food).

I only did 35 min. of exercise for several excuses reasons: I had a phone call (about personal training!), during the phone call I had a back twinge (feared hurting back again) and by the time the call was over I had "come down" from my endorphine high and couldn't get up the urge to do 5 or 10 more minutes.

Sometimes I have the same food twice in a day because I need a snack and we have limited food choices. I think I'm doing a good thing b/c I'm not snacking on yogurt that has a lot of sugar or something else like that. I think, "this has fiber and no, to very little, sugar so it must be better than some other options." Most of the veggies we have in the fridge are used for dinner so I can't snack too much on them. Is this thinking correct or illogical? I guess really I shouldn't snack a t all but I have another theory that says it helps keep my metabolism up.
