tarotgal: (Hufflepuff)
A friend just started a food diary online. I've tried several online systems and I've tried on paper three times, but I've never managed to keep an accurate food diary. So I asked aforementioned friend and took a look at the MyPlate system at http://Livestrong.com. I like it a lot, so I signed up. Should be interesting. I'm trying to lose a minimum of 15lbs before Infinitus (I'd like to lose 30-35 in total, if I can). Problem is, I'm not willing to change my diet and I'm a lazy butt when it comes to exercising (actually, it's partly that I have stomach/headache problems and don't feel like leaving the bathroom/bed, let along exercising sometimes. But, mostly, I'm just lazy). I used the calculator and it says I should be consuming 1,600 calories or fewer to lose 1 lb a week. Problem is, I put in yesterday and today's food and on neither day did I have more than 1,400 calories. Carbs for day 1, for example, was 60% of my daily recommended intake. But sugars? Like 240%. Clearly, those are the problems. It's kind of neat seeing that right there, calculated for me. And nice pie chart of what I'm putting in my body, etc. I really do need to up my proteins. I need yummy, high protein things I can snack on at my desk (instead of organic pop tarts and cookies).


I started my first REAL scarf project yesterday! My first knitting attempt doesn't count, because I was just learning. And the second attempt is a still unfinished scarf I'm knitting for Moony (poor baby gets cold, you know. And Padfoot has a dog collar). So I re-taught myself how to knit last night (took some time to even figure out how to make a slip knot, let alone cast on). But the scarf isn't too bad. The end is a little wonky, but I've got the hang of it now. It's about 8 inches long and there's a LONG way to go. Why am I doing this? For the Harry Potter Alliance's newest campaign: Magical Acts of Warmth (adapted from Magical Acts of Kindness, which is adapted from Random Acts of Kindness). It's actually so much fun putting in all this effort for something that someone else can use to keep warm. OH MY GODS I'm SUCH a Hufflepuff, aren't I? LOL


Oh, also, did I ever mention how much I love Olympic hockey? That's what made me fall in love with hockey to begin with. Go Russia!!!
