Net Zero

Yesterday was my first day in probably a year that my net Calorie intake was 0.

700 in
700 out

I know that's terrible for your metabolism, to net 0, but I can't help it. I need to be in the 150's. Because I had so little yesterday, I thought I might step on the scale today just in case I had even a water weight difference.


And that's why I wait a month between weighing.

My friend is coming over to my house this morning to dye my hair. Getting some summer blonde. My hair is naturally dark blonde, but I'm ready for summer hair. Hopefully having nicer hair will be extra motivation to get my body to match my hair.

In other news, I went to my first Jazzercise class this morning. Even the most modest calculations online said that for a 160 lb person, you burn at least 350 Calories in a Jazzercise class. It didn't feel like it. I'm naturally a very sweaty person and when I'm really working I get drenched in sweat. I hardly broke a sweat in this class. Of course I was standing in front of a fan, so maybe my internal calculations were off.

Whatever. I'm logging it as 200.


  1. Weighing can be so addictive, especially when the numbers are dropping. I still weigh most days, but I try to focus on weekly and monthly changes instead of daily fluctuations.

    Glad to hear you got to Jazzercise! Maybe they're starting off easy, having lots of newbies around for the month?


  2. I'm sure the fan made a big difference - I'm a sweaty person too and when I run on very windy days I'm like hey, I'm dry, am I running or what?
    Also, bonus points for cross training :-)

    Thanks for your kind words darling - I really need to puss my shit together ;-)
