3.14 - HAPPY PI DAY
Pi Day began in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium, which is holding its 25th annual Pi Day today. Other groups across the country are celebrating, too—in Princeton, New Jersey, both Pi Day and Albert Einstein’s birthday (which is also on March 14) are honored with pie-eating contests and Einstein lookalike competitions.
I hope you had a piece of pie to celebrate!
I went to see my nutritionist (dietary specialist) today. I have been concerned that I have not been able to lose weight. We discussed my caloric intake and realized that I probably eat 1,600 calories a day. He said that was reasonable. I have a hard time going lower because of migraines if I skip meals or don't eat enough. We discussed how I need to exercise as I have been doing but also need to add in resistance and weight training. He said that since I was laid up for so long I have muscles that have atrophied. They are not burning off the calories like they should. I need to get my muscles back to their fighting weight! I was given this book with weight and resistance training exercises. I will start tomorrow. Tonight I went in the hot tub and took a soak.
