View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day
Yesterday I met with the nutritionist! I really want to get below 200 pounds and I am tired of this roller coaster ride. Even though I have not lost the weight I have done a lot of work on eating better quality foods, I just need to be consistent with it. I really do want this marathon in October but I really need to lose some weight to make it easier. We mapped out the calorie range I should stick too depending on the type of workout I am doing, it is just what I needed. Just like my running plan, I have a calorie management plan of action.
For days that are lighter workout days she says there really is not a need to eat back the exercise calories as long as I don't go under 1,200 calories. The days that I am doing the tempo runs and long runs she does want me to eat back the exercise calories. She says this will help me keep the calories lower on the lighter or no workout days. So right now I am motivated! My goal is to keep it consistant this week.
Unfortunately yesterday when I stepped on the scale it was back up to 228 but it is a starting point.....again.
Last night was speed work. I did not think the work out would be that bad BUT we did 5 sets of 1000 M @ goal 5K pace. Whew it kicked my butt! I was a little off my goal pace each set by 10-15 seconds but I could not have run it faster. I was so tired when I got home last night. This morning I met my neigbor to do our bleecher workout.....it was a pretty whimpy workout, I just did not have the energy. But I got up and did something. It was nice the scale is go back down to 226....
