Photo: Had a birthday brunch this weekend for obafugakum. With people. Pictured are leleth_faery and megwyn. Something about the color of the light, wall, Leleth's makeup and skin tone made editing this hard. Everything made her look half-dead or stark white.
Feeling fat and lazy lately. Went to the gym three times last weekend because I was enjoying the warm blankets far too much on the weekend days rather than, you know, getting up and exercising. Rather, I sleep in and make pancakes (for science!) which don't exactly increase fat loss.
I need to get my body fat checked again. I think I've finally lost some. I have bicep dimples and calf muscle definitions. Nice but I'd like to shift that definition to my midsection, thanks. Grr.
And I'm waffling on the best way to exercise lately. I've been doing weight training and cardio every time I go to the gym. I've been doing lower weight and more reps but am getting really bored with that. i think I'm going to switch it up to two days of straight weight training at heavy weights, lower reps and then have straight cardio days. Maybe I'll workout longer on straight cardio days like I used to.
Getting bored with cardio too. I'm hoping I'll get more excited when it is WARM and I can run outside without fear of exploding my lungs.
I have, promisingly, been keeping my calories between 1400 and 1800 a day - I burn roughly 2600 a day according to numerous calculations - so I'm ostensibly losing about 2 pounds a week. This doesn't seem to hold true based on infrequent weigh-ins but I am weight training in top of cardio. Hopefully it's some competing functions of building muscle and burning fat that accounts for that.
Or the cookies. It's probably the cookies. :)
Green tea transition is going well so far. I was more alert and functional yesterday until about 2pm. Crashed hard and couldn't perk up. I need to make more trail mix to have for snacking. I can only take so many of the carb-control Myoplex protein bars in a day.
Ordered a birth certificate today so I can get my passport. It was EXPENSIVE.
Also! The wedding album arrives today! I am so excited to see it! I will post about it after I deliver them to the couple tomorrow. I think I can post the book layout directly to a website from Aperture. I'm not sure if it displays the layout I did or just the photos. I hope the former as I was very intentional with my layout choices.
