View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day
YUCK.....226!!!!!! So it looks like I gained 10-13 pounds in 3 weeks. That is crazy. 3 weeks ago I was at 216. After Xmas I started logging again so I am sure I lost 2-3 pounds....I am guessing based on how my clothes fit. Sigh......
So, I can train for a marathon, complete a marathon BUT I still cannot control my food without constant vigilance. So this was a real kick in the pants. I really did not think I was that out of control. Looking back not weighing myself daily was probably giving me an excuse to over indulge.
I am going to have to recommit again to daily weigh ins and logging everything that goes into my mouth.
I got a green check yesterday again!
I dont mind logging my food as I know it will help me reach my goal. It is actually empowering.
I honestly feel OK. 226 is actually giving me a little motivation kick things up a notch.
This morning I ran 7 miles before work: 2 mile warm up, 3 mile temp run(was supposed to run between 11:00-11:30 pace, I averaged 11:17
..I am happy with that) and then a 2 mile cool down run. I will tell you what my calorie burn on that tempo was great 500 Calories (I use a garmin with a hear rate monitor. The 4 mile warm up and cool down were about 600 calories)
