TGIF! Been a bit of a stressful week, so I’m glad to see the weekend almost here. I’m excited to get out of work early today and get my errands done, clean my house. And also for the pizza and giant glass of wine I’m planning. 😉 Tomorrow night we’re going to the Indians’ game, and I’m really excited about that! Our seats are right behind third base, and we’re supposed to have gorgeous weather.
This is going to be my last blog post for awhile. I’ve decided to take a bit of a break from it. I’m feeling burnt out, so a break will do me good. I don’t know for how long, but I’ll be back at some point.
Have a great weekend!

Another good week. My goal is always at least 30 minutes a day, whether it’s a run or a walk or both. I even worked in some kettlebell exercises one night. Trying to get my arms toned up. I haven’t had a long run in a few weeks, so I’m hoping for one of those over the weekend.
I have been using MyFitnessPal for 2 years at the end of this month. I still don’t feel completely confident in my daily choices to stop using it completely, although I don’t track everything like I used to. I basically use it just to get a rough idea of where I’m at for the day. One of the things I had been noticing was my exercise calories were always WAY high. Which would then make me think I had all these extra calories to EAT ALL THE FOOD. And I didn’t want to keep thinking that way, and find myself eating poorly. I decided to change my settings on MFP from sedentary to active, since I do workout almost daily. It gives me a more accurate number of calories burned and keeps me closer to the number I should be consuming every day. I’m not trying to lose, just maintain, and MFP really helps me stay on track.
