I'm just annoyed. I'm annoyed that when it comes to bmr, I apparently need to become active, clean all day. It's not enough that I try to eat healthfully or that I exercise and I eat at a deficit from my bmr. Exercise doesn't seem to count with most websites designed to help you lose the weight. I exercise 6 days out of the week. I clean/do house hold chores 2-3 days a week. My weekend job calls for me to do a fair bit of walking. But I still am not doing enough. I guess since it's time to reclaim my back yard again, I will have a reason to be active to a good part of the day. Also, I will be cleaning out the front half of my parent's garage next week. Hopefully it has some positive impact. Grrr. I hate feeling like a fool, because I really thought I was doing better, but it turns out I'm not losing weight like I thought I should for a very good reason. Because also, it feels like the idea that exercising raises your overall metabolism, and therefore, how much you're burning while resting, to be complete bullshit.
excuse my pity party.
