I read in Women's Health that an average woman needs about 420 minutes of moderate exercise every week to maintain her weight without changing her diet. That is 60 minutes of exercise every day. And I guess that means if you aren't exercising on one day, you need to be cutting calories big time that day.
Last night I went to a Hanukkah party... it was super fun but they had lots of delicious food which I participated in eating.
Today I am having a tall glass of milk for breakfast, a lean cuisine for lunch, an apple and a pear. Not sure about dinner. Have a happy hour at 6:30 planned for my volunteer organization but there is no way I can go if work is crazy, and if I want to exercise, and if I want to NOT stuff my face. Sucks to skip events in the name of health.. but, sometimes you have to do it!
On another note-- rant: I am white. The guy I am dating is black. None of my friends seem to care. My parents don't care. I'm pretty sure his parents don't care (although I wouldn't really know as we are JUST dating...) Apparently friends he's known his whole life have been calling him up to bitch about face book pictures of him and me. They aren't even romantic pictures.. we're literally just sitting next to each other. Some of his black friends have said to him something along the lines of "I can't believe you would date someone below your standards" and "why would you date her when you can date a black woman." I realize that this is not a personal attack, it is based on my skin color and not my soul.. but it still hurts my feelings. It's like reverse racism! Oh well.. I think he's handling it well... telling these individuals that he has no plans to associate with them any longer because they are obviously not the type of friends he wants in his life.
