Here’s today’s open thread!
The pic at right was taken last week. My friend brought his dog over and we took her outside for a little exercise. He fosters dogs and takes them on walks around the city wearing cute little jackets that have “Adopt Me!” printed on them
This pic is one I snapped while on my run yesterday. I know. Totally juvenile. But it reminded me of those stories you hear of people who see an image of Jesus in cheese or the clouds.
I’m trying to lose a bit more weight and have been using the My Fitness Pal app to track my cardio and caloric intake. I posted a few comments on this thread over at XOJane and I’m getting a lot of feedback about how low my calorie intake is per day.
I shoot for about 1300-1400 calories consumed per day. I exercise around 3-4 times a week, usually just power walking and intervals. That leaves me at about a 1200 calorie intake per day. Some days I do intervals for 20 minutes then walk another 30. Other days I’ll walk for at about 3-3.5mph about 60-70 minutes straight. I love waking. Always have. And my legs show it, which is why I do it. I don’t feel a need to kill myself at the gym, and I hate weights because they mess with my joints. I do have medicine balls (6,8 & 10 lbs.), which I really like and they’re less stressful on my wrists and elbows.PS? The photo below was taken after I had the Keratin process in my hair. Yep, unless I flat iron it, it’s still pretty curly.
Here’s something I learned while working with 5 different female clients this week. They all live in NYC. Their ages ranged from 38-45. Two were African American and the other 3 women were Caucasian. They all said that they NEVER get messages/replies from Caucasian men in their late thirties to late forties who live in Manhattan or Brooklyn. They only hear from Caucasian men who are both well outside of their stated age range by 5+ years and live in the suburbs. Thoughts on why that is?
Oh, AND!! Look at this story over on The Frisky.
Now, what I want to know is if anyone else has ever received messages this nasty, critical or downright freakish. And what the hell did these women say in their profiles/messages that made these guys think it was okay to respond this way? The pic below is a message I received a while back on OKCupid.
Okay, folks. This is the thread where you can post your questions and get feedback, vent, share, etc.
