The Fitness Place

I've been a member of a fitness center for almost 10 years. It's my best friend. We have been through some bad times as well as good. I thank it for being a great destressor. I love you!!

Finance and Fitness

Budgeting my finances is starting to become an ongoing habit thanks to a few personal financiers. In years past, I've always overspend on countless items that weren't a necessity which brought my bank account to an overdrawn status. The temptation of purchasing a brand name dress for a regular price at a retail store was constantly on my mind. Once I reached the checkout stand, I paid for the item not knowing how much it cost. Afterwards, I did not write the total amount on paper or through a computer.

Neglecting to track my expenses coincides with documenting the amount of calories I consume. An active person should consume between 1600 to 2000 calories a day. I seem to go below the suggested amount because of my constant fear of gaining weight, which leads to my overall race performanc. This is the reason I am squawked by members of the fitness community.

With these ideas in mind, I have developed a trend which has been successful. I've been writing everything I eat and spend through paper and online. At the same time, I've been burning calories as my bank account continues to accrue.

Back to Basics

So I'm back to blogging. Yes, I am in the wonderful world social networking since 2002. It started Friendster (a.k.a. the father of social networking) followed by MySpace, Bebo, Facebook, and now Twitter. Thinking that it would help me find a job, social networking has evolved into friendship development and a training diary. If you think that I put personal information on the web, you are wrong!!!

Now, it's time for me to head to the health club as I train for my third half marathon.
