I don’t know why I choose to post such ridiculous pictures of myself. Don’t be too jealous of my hair.
Under my ipod thingee in the picture is a body bugg. What is a body bugg? Basically, it tells you how many calories your burn throughout the day.
I got the body bugg for my first marathon training. I really wanted to know how many calories I was burning in order to eat the right amount of food because I had no idea how much food it took to adequately fuel training for a marathon.
It was CRAZY!!! Between long runs, tempo runs and hill workouts I was burning calories like crazy and I am thankful I had the body bugg because I knew WHY I was such a ravenous beast…..my body had turned into a calorie furnace and needed the extra ice cream a few times a day.
I don’t even know why I am writing about this but I just wanted to know how other people figure out how many calories they are burning during hardcore training in order to fuel properly?
I used the body bugg for my first marathon and then sold it after on ebay because I had a pretty good idea of how many calories I was burning and I became a little obsessive about it. My MIL also used it for a few months in order to figure out how many calories she burned on average with all that she does!
Mouth Update: My mouth feels like I got a mouth transplant and can’t believe how much better I feel. Seriously, it is crazy how easily I take for granted things like not having a pounding headache for a week straight and then as soon as I hurt, I am really good at complaining about it for 97% of the hours that I am awake.
It did hurt at one point REALLY BAD!!!
A student brought in this angel to show me because she knows I am obsessed with dogs…….
I opened my mouth so big and for some reason that hurts my jaw really bad. The pain was worth it because I was able to hold little Boston (the puppies name) for an hour and have him fall asleep in my arms. It was a good day.
On another teaching note, during study hall a student was eating a banana and nutella……in the future if this happnes again should I tell her she can have extra credit if she gives it to me? Or should I just steal it and tell her no food in class and secretly eat it at my desk…..I don’t know what to do!
What is your absolute favorite puppy breed?
-Labs, little Boston and golden retriever puppies!
How do you make sure that you are fueling properly during training? Do you go according to feel, a plan, a website, do you guestimate your calorie burn, you don’t even think about it or something else?
-Now I just go by feel and I love that!!!
Anyone ever had a body bugg or something similar? Did you like it?
