10 July 2014

Today, I am down to 191.8. This is where I normally am on a Thursday, before I mess it up in the weekend. So, I won't call this diet a success until I see 189.

I did very well yesterday with my real food snacks. I didn't feel like day one which felt like I ate off the dessert menu all day. Everything resembled things I'd find in a bakery. Seriously, as a kid I would have loved that! But I eat clean now. I'm a clean eating Flexitarian.

When 5:30 came around, I was really hungry. The plan was to get a salad on the way to Bible study, but I have this thing about being late. I had my 7pm snack at 5:30 so I could survive the commute. When I got to the location I didn't think I had time to get my salad, so that didn't happen until about 9:00. I was eating my chef salad outside the grocery store like a ferocious beast.

This morning, my legs are tired. Though my bike commute isn't long, it is still a workout which means I'm working out 5-7 days a week for thirty minutes a day I'd say. What do I do? My bike is my transportation. Should I just walk tomorrow or keep biking to get stronger?

Today, I am down to 193.6, TOM is here, and I think I'm going to need a lot of water. As far as the diet is concerned, the struggle was real yesterday just after lunch time.

My normal eating habits are a filling and well-balanced breakfast, medium lunch, and light dinner with a 3pm snack in between. This diet wants me to eat a pretty light breakfast (in my opinion), 10:30 snack, 12:30 snack, 2:30 snack, 5:30 dinner, and 7:30 snack.

My struggle was primarily due to disrupting my feeding habit. Secondarily, it was due to poor planning. In a rush I bought Nature Valley and Fiber One bars to meet the 100-150 calorie requirement for the snacks. Those types of snacks disappear so quickly my mouth/taste buds are not satisfied. I literally have to wait for the nutrients to kick in to tell me I'm not hungry. Also, those snacks are so sweet that I felt like I was on all-dessert diet.

Today, I am hoping to remedy that. I went back to the store and bought "real food" that I can portion into the same size snack: veggies, fruits, nuts, yogurt, and hummus. I think they will be more satisfying.

08 July 2014

Hello! So I ran my half marathon on June 1 coming in at 2:35:55. I accomplished two of my three goals in finishing the race and running the entire race. I didn't make it under 2:30:00, so that is the goal for my next half. With all of those hills in the final two miles, I had no energy left.

The month of June was awkward for me. Half tired from the half, focused on selling my car, and trying to regain my daily routine. I never made it below 190.0 lbs, but maintained 191 for quite awhile.

I managed to sell my car and just recently purchased a bike. So now I am a bike commuter which is pretty cool. I ran a 10k on July 4 coming in at 1:16 which was far slower than my first 6.2 miles during the half marathon just a month before. I didn't really train, to be honest - just relied on all the biking to keep me in shape. With the biking I have maintained my weight between 191 - 193. I just recently breached that over the holiday.

So right now, my friend is on another diet and I decided to support her. It is a diet to target belly fat before her birthday next week. She said she likes to diet because it makes her feel clean, so I am going to look at this as a cleanse then. Allow me to clean up my Fourth of July indulgences :-)

Before you get excited, it's water loss from my 11 mile run! :)

My weight has been maintaining at 193 for several weeks. Now that I rely on public transportation it is messing up my 13.1 training schedule. Or so I thought until yesterday! I just haven't been innovative enough!

Due to the weather I had to postpone my long run from Saturday. Not that I don't run in the rain, but because Saturday was the first opportunity that I have had to mow my lawn in 4 weeks AND we were due for more rain. Sunday, I planned to go to church then run 11 miles home, however the scattered thunderstorms were ill-timed with my long run.

Monday was perfect. Instead of taking MARTA home, I decided to run home from work. It's actually about 14 miles home, but there's a train station just after the 11 mile mark so the plan was to hop the train the rest of the way. Ingenious! On days, I'm supposed to run then I'll leave my bag at work and run to the train station closest to my distance goal!

11 miles really hurts by the way. Motrin was my friend last night :-)

Okay, I'm going back down :-) That is great! I'm glad that I didn't do any permanent damage during my birthday week. And it didn't take long to start recovering after I restocked my fridge with fruits and veggies from the farmers market.

I've got to check my journal to see if I'm still on target to keep up with my average weight loss. I'm doing great with the marathon training. Tomorrow we will do 8 miles! At this rate, I'm not going to make my fundraising goal. But there are still a few more weeks to raise the funds. If you all chip in
$13.10 for the 13.1 miles I'll be running, then it will make a huge difference :-)

I've increased my stair climb to reflect the cross training schedule. We've moved up to 30 minutes of XT so that's 3 reps on the stairs now. That's 22 steps x 18 floors x 3 reps. Oh my!!!
