Notes: according to my app, my diet consists of 15% protein, 30% fat, 55% carbohydrates. That's not good lol, well, it can't be that bad because I'm not really moving in weight. However, I believe I want to be 30/30/40. I'll have to start working on that...slowly.

160 Calories Burned: I jogged for about 20 minutes. I went around once, then brought Emmie with me so she could do her peeps & poops lol, which means I danced in place a lot before going back home.
2'536 Calories Gained: I was a pig today haha. I ate and ate and ate! On the bright side, I finally got enough protein according to my app.

409 Calories Burned: I'm really happy I burned that many calories & was out there for 50 mins, but it was a wonky workout. Both knee and ankle joints hurt almost the whole time I jogged (not while I walked so much), despite the breathing tea I drank and the iron supplement I took before hand (I have trouble getting enough air when I'm low - or so it seems), I still ended up struggling to breath.

At one point my left foot felt like it was going to fall apart on me, like the long bones in it were acting like floor boards with loose screws, so I walked it off a bit and that stopped.. odd. On the bright side, I was out there for 50 mins and got some good vitamin sunshine!

I took a break. This is my rant about why: I was working out, working, making dinner, going to bed, rinse and repeat, over and over, every day, for weeks. I hardly had time to do dishes, laundry, vacuum, tidy up, and all the other chores that my husband wasn't helping me out with as he just played computer games. So, I felt like hanging out with my friends in WoW for an evening. Well it through my whole routine to shit! I didn't get enough sleep, I was late to work, and too tired to make dinner. I was so mad I couldn't help but cry. So I just dropped everything: cleaning, laundry, working out, making food.

I needed the break. Since I still want to achieve the physical goals I set out to achieve, I'm going to have to start working out again! So, I have to rearrange a few things that I won't get into here. On this subject however, I was a bit ticked off with my routine. Standing all day and jogging are not good for my knee. Although I didn't end up hating jogging as much as I though I would, I would still much rather be doing yoga, dancing, and weight lifting at the gym. *sigh*

I have a yoga mat but I only have enough room out in the living room of a busy house, and boy do I hate working out in positions not too unlike sexual ones with people around if they're not doing the same thing. Oi. I'm gonna have to just go at it anyways. Sucks to try to do it as a noob when I can't even see the tv from some of the positions it has you in lol.

I can hardly afford things as it is, so I don't see how I would be able to get a gym membership. I might have to just buy some weights. Might do me some good to actually finish reading Robert Cheekes book lol. And I could dance in the bed room to music for 20mins lol. It's better than not doing any cardio!

Oh! And why not drop 5-10lbs! I'm now about 125-130, since I was eating the same amount of calories. Plus, it will make working out more interesting. I need to take butt pictures and do butt-building exercises too lol

Hey there, Mina! Hope things are going well, since you were feeling so motivated last week. I understand how easy it is to feel overwhelmed, but glad you caught a second wind after your break. Are you still jogging? Take care! - Karen
