12 January 2017

I can't believe that I'm finally putting in a lower number than when I restarted my fitness goals back in September! I initially gained 3 pounds as soon as I started working out, and for the past 3 months I have been losing and gaining the same three pounds.

On a whim, I decided to join a friend on her doctor-recommended diet of 1400 calories daily. She told me about this when we were in Mexico, and during our vacation I noticed how little we ate and figured it was worth a try.

In my opinion, a 1400 calorie diet is a starvation diet. So, I'm looking at it as a fast.

Another thing I noticed while in Mexico is that we rarely ate breakfast on time. We're not resort people, we like to get in the car and explore. On most days, we'd set out planning to stop by a cafe and grab a coffee and a pastry or something. However, we'd forget about it and it would be about 1230 or 1 before we ate anything.

I thought...that's technically skipping breakfast. Isn't that bad? Well, I didn't really feel bad. Also, I calculated that I was eating 200-400 calories less each day because we rarely had breakfast. Shoot we barely had lunch. I know one day I wasn't feeling well and I had the tomato and cucumber off of my salad, maybe 4 chips, and two bites of rice all day. We always had dinner, though.

I lost weight while in Mexico...about 3 pounds. Thanks, stomach bug! But, my weight is still going down. I may see onederland by the end of this month. I can't believe I actually said that, I've never stayed over 200 pounds for more than a month. And, now it's been the better part of a year. Oh well, time to leave and never come back.

I don't know how long I'm going to stay under 1400 calories. I've finally gotten in control of the craving to eat every 5 seconds. They're not mastered though, those cravings are little monsters. But there are craving on every diet to master. So, cheers to this one.

Apparently I overdid it Saturday. I'm having difficulties physically and mentally this week.

So this past Saturday, I did a 3.26 run with my running group and ran the entire thing. Super happy to break through that mental hurdle in mile 2 that made me walk before I got to mile 3.

Then I went to the gym, and biked for 30 minutes. I kept having this sensation in the back of my thighs like I was being shocked but I kept going.

In the pool, I only got in 15 laps which I chalked up to doing more in running and biking.

I haven't been sore and barely stiff, but on Monday running felt tough and clumsy. I felt like I had resistance bands tied to my legs and it burned to try to run. Tuesday, I felt no love for the gym but I made myself go and I did a Zumba class just to get myself moving.

The class was so bad! The instructor kept saying that between her two classes and family she had no time to practice her routine. It showed! It's bad when the entire class can't tell what's going on.

Anyways, I was going to run after, but I couldn't mentally get myself to do anything.

I did nothing yesterday and couldn't even get up to go today. However, I do have running apparel and my swimsuit packed in my car. At the very least, I'm swimming today.

Finally, a remarkable loss in weight. I have lost two full pounds! This after gaining about 3 when I returned to the gym six weeks ago. That happens every time - don't be alarmed.

I'm still above my starting weight, but I'm happy to see that the muscle I've gained is burning the fat. I think this first ten pounds is going to be very stubborn. However, I'm very excited for my body. It seems to be recovering from my workouts much faster than last year. I hate walking around stiff and sore for days. It doesn't seem fair that in order to be fit I have to hurt all the time. Now, I don't [except for an ankle].

I really look forward to my tri training days. I torch a lot of calories on those days. Today is going to be a weight training day after I run. I couldn't get up this morning for the gym so I went straight into work early. That means I get off early and can go work out before I Uber.

It's going to be a grand day.
