Today is weigh-in day. What can I say? I hope I have a stellar loss. I’ve worked harder this week than I have in the few weeks prior, and I’m seriously ready to reach that 100 mark. I don’t expect it to happen today, but I definitely want to see advances in that direction.
I’m thinking about giving the Bodybugg a rest in the upcoming week. I know that if I workout as usual I’ll reach my calorie deficit for the day, and frankly, it’s confusing. I feel like it’s an unnecessary distraction since I already know how much I should eat and how much I should exercise. I’m not saying I’ll give it up for good…I think I’ll just take it off tomorrow and reevaluate next week.
People have asked me if I think it’s worth the money. I don’t know. I know that it made me aware of my caloric burn while I was away, but I came back showing a loss of 2.4 pounds – about 5 pounds less than my last trip. So it’s certainly not an extraordinary device that simplifies weight loss. I’ve done better on several previous trips by simply counting food and activity points. Thank you, Weight Watchers…
It might be perfect for someone who isn’t already tracking their food and activity levels, but for me it seems like an unnecessary crutch. I was pleasantly surprised by my level of movement when I saw the numbers for myself, but was it worth $300? Nah. If I could return it today, I would. Does that mean you shouldn’t try it? Absolutely not! If you’re looking for a starting point then the Bodybugg could be a good thing. But if you asked my advice, I’d suggest investing the money in seven months at Weight Watchers instead.
Wish me luck weighing in. I know I create my own ‘luck,’ but it makes me feel better knowing that there are people wishing me skinny vibes..;)
On a different note, I was reading Andrea’s blog yesterday and stumbled across this cool ABC questionaire. I love stuff like this so I decided I’d post my own here. If you’d like to see her answers, check out her blog. She’s a super lady!
A) Are you a PC or a Mac? I own both. I suppose you could say that I’m a PC by birth, and a Mac by the grace of God..I prefer Apple because they just don’t crash as often, but I’m sure I’ll always own a PC too.
B) Best show currently on TV: White Collar…even setting aside that fact that Matt Bomber is the sexiest man alive, the show is solid…I can’t wait until the new season starts in June! And in case I haven’t been clear in the past, this is what lust looks like from my eyes…
C) Chore you dislike: I don’t despise any particular chore. My lovely cleaning lady does the stuff that I wouldn’t want to do like cleaning the wood floors after a snow storm and such…I’m thankful for her and her desire for perfection in her work. 🙂
D) Dogs or Cats? Dogs. Dogs. Dogs. Cats can be cute too, but I love dogs!
E) Essential “Start the day” items: I have to eat breakfast…I’m not a fan of eating early, but it’s so important to get my metabolism started. I do it. I usually drink a Special K Chocolate protein shake or eat Fage 2% with strawberries. I could eat Greek yogurt for breakfast and dessert. Sometimes I do.
F) Favorite Color: I’ve always loved pink, but lately I’m in love with teal and pearly shades of blue. When I got back from my last trip, my bestie said “Kenz, you’re going to turn teal!” I just know what I like. 😉
G) Gold or Silver: Silver…platinum…diamonds…
H) Height: 5’4″
I) Instrument you play: piano
J) Job: Yep…love it.
K) Kids? Nope…
L) Living where? New York, of course…!
M) Mom’s name: I call her Mom. 🙂
N) Nickname: Kenz is actually my nickname. 🙂
O) Overnight hospital stay: I hope not…
P: Pet Peeve: a wet bathroom sink…it’s bothersome.
Q) Quote from a movie: Noah from The Notebook said, “I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who’s ever lived: I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough.”
R) Righty or Lefty? I’m a lefty…
S) Siblings: Yes…:)
T) TV shows you watch: Big Bang Theory, White Collar, 24, Ruby, etc. Thank you, DVR.
U) Underwear: Yes? I mean…I wear it.
V) Veggies you like: squash, zucchini, green beans, turnips, carrots, sweet potatoes, onions, green peppers, spinach, baby bok choy…I’m pretty impressed with myself right now because this list could go on and on…;)
W) Ways you flirt: I smile or bite my bottom lip or bat my eyes or giggle, etc.
X) Expiration Dates – do you keep or toss? I keep things like unopened cream cheese, but I toss milk..
Y) Yummy foods you make: Faux Fried Chicken, Angel Cookies, Onion Rings, etc.
Z) Zoo animal you like: Giraffes are my favorite in case that was not previously clear…:) They’re just so cute!
