Commuting eats into my run time and personal time and work time....so I am down to shorter runs again while I try to work this out, so I have to make the most of it. Today I decided to run one block at a faster pace, then when I hit a crossroad I would turn and run the next block slower, then turn and the next block faster...At least it was interesting. Total exercise time about 30 min.
Last week I lost 1.5lbs. It could be because we didn't eat out all week. But also last week I did something daring. I gave up counting calories. I can't do it for the rest of my life. 4 years is enough and I have plenty of numbers in my head. I bought a book called The Portion Teller Plan: The No Diet Reality Guide to Eating, Cheating, and Losing Weight Permanently, by Lisa R. Young. As food savvy as I generally think I am, it has been a revelation. I decided to give it a try and it has been really interesting so far. I'm not hungry at all, and I lost weight, a significant amount compared to what I have been doing. But since two variables changed in the week, who is to say which it was. Stay tuned for the results of week two later.
