Kiss me, I'm skinnier!
Okay, this would have been much better if I had posted it yesterday like I intended. Still, the sentiment is the same. Decent week, decent WI.
I am settling into MyFitnessPal, and really enjoying it. It has been incredibly refreshing to do something different. My efforts have been re-doubled, so seeing progress is also great validation.
It's funny how a seemingly small change - counting calories instead of points - has made me look at things differently, as well as learn new things. I've been puttering around the MFP community boards and soaking up tips and tricks from users there. One thing I have noticed mentioned over and over is net calories. Here I was just eating my 1200-1500 and doing my 300-500 calorie workouts. According to popular opinion on MFP, that's not exactly right, or at least not the best approach. So this week I'll be focusing on a net calorie intake of 1200, after my workouts. It doesn't mean exactly eating back what I've burned, but instead fueling for daily and extra activity. I'll be giving it a try the next week or so and we'll see how it goes. Best case: I'll lose weight. Worst case: it won't work so well and I'll go back to the old way.
Here's to a healthy week!
