YEP. I DID IT.
And I cut out my mid evening snack. So yesterday I actually came out to:
2887-2085 = 802
I somehow copied an extra breakfast to that day and I was just trying to fix it and deleted the wrong thing so don't mind that day if you actually LOOK at the tracker!!! But you can see the sundae was 1 serving of light ice cream, plus some mini reeses pieces, plus about 1 oreo crushed, plus whipped topping. SO worth it. :)
And my overage on Monday was 335, so so far this week I'm at a deficit of: 467
Not super great, but I don't feel deprived or upset about it AT ALL. I feel good. :)
This morning my new running buddy bailed on me - WAHWAH. hahaha
She emailed me this morning at 6:30 am - we meet at 7:00am. The GOOD side of this is that I found out at the PERFECT time. I was dressed and ready to go run, just decided to check my emails real quick and saw hers. So rather than drive to where we were gonna meet, wait a while, then run by myself THERE... I just headed out the door HERE. Did 2 miles at a more leisurely pace and came back, showered, ate, and napped. YAY for sleep!
I dunno how good my deficit will be today, though, I was pretty munchy this morning... I'm at 1461 already today.
(1767 + 308 = 2075) so.... 2075-1461 = 614 but..... I still need to eat dinner. :) Not sure what we'll be eating yet -- just depends on what the hubby feels like, but I'm sure it'll probably be at least 400 calories. We'll see.
Like I said yesterday -- I'm really not too concerned. I want to have a deficit this week, I want to slowly lose, but I also am not bothered if I don't meet a 3500 cal deficit for the week or not. Just want to make sure I'm eating enough and am fueled enough to complete all my workouts and stay on track in that area because MARATHON TRAINING starts officially August 17th for a 16 week training program and I want to make sure that at that point I have been regularly running my 4 runs a week like clockwork so I am ready to just start working the miles on the program without any shock to my system.
My rowing coach sent out an email yesterday asking who was interested in competing so we could go ahead and fill out an online waiver for if we were interested -- the possible regatta dates are all in October. I totall filled out that waiver. :) She said she was excited that I was interested in competing. YAY! (That made me feel good but really -- who knows if she's just excited because people are interested and she's enthusiastic or if that says anything about me in particular...) Really -- if I could compete in a regatta it would SOOOOOOOO be worth continuing to use rowing as crosstraining during my marathon training. I KNOW I can do this. cross training is good for you and I'm not following a COMPETITIVE marathon training plan, just a beginners one aiming for me to FINISH safely. I can't pass up the opportunity to compete in a team sport -- that is something I never thought in a million years would ever apply to me. :) hehehehe. So hopefully they are able to find a good spot for me to compete in and I can not embarrass myself.
I guess that's it for today except -- SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE IS TONIGHT!!! :D I LOVE THAT SHOW SO MUCH!
Anyone else who's watching: What do you think of the top ten that are left? :D I like it!!!! Also I watch it on TiVo after I get off of work at 10PM so NO SPOILERS PLEASE. ;) hahahaha. But just curious about the opinions on who is in the top 10. :) We can talk tomorrow about performances. :D
