It doesn't matter if you run 13.1 if you still eat poorly, as evidenced by my gain this week. I do so well in the morning, then, when I get the slightest pang of hunger in the afternoon, I give it all up to eat junk. Like the doughnuts I ate on the way home yesterday. They filled me up, but J had dinner waiting and I still ate that too. I did do amazingly with my water intake yesterday, so I hope to continue with that trend (there was a water bottle in the race bags Sunday, so that's my new work bottle. Easier to carry around than the cup I was using).
I also needed to add in exercise other than my sporadic running, and the only time to do that is the morning. I got out of the habit of waking up early a long time ago, but tried again today. I'm working my way into it, so I started with some push-ups and crunches. Fingers crossed I make it up again tomorrow!
I also do not think I've been keeping to my goals, so I'm reposting to recommit.
-Track calories daily, good or bad
-Drink more water!
-No more soda
-Run at least 3x a week
I am good at tracking morning calories, but I downloaded livestrong on my phone, so maybe it'll get better? Water check, soda I have cut back on, but need to cut out. Running I think I'll move to 2-3x a week. More often it will be 2 because it's dark before and after work. And another goal. Beginning of September, I was a pound away from pre-pregnancy weight. Today I am 5lbs away. By Thanksgiving (end of the latest work weight loss challenge!) I would like to be firmly below my pre-pregnancy weight.
In good news, I only have a marathon's amount of miles left to make it to 200 for the year!
