Blog Streak Day 5!

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

After looking at my running schedule, I've decided I can still get my miles in this week if I take today off. Maybe I'll run later, but I think since I'm still feeling sick this morning maybe it's a good idea to take a day off. UGH.

It at least takes the pressure off running 11 (which is what I should be running today) knowing I could do it tomorrow instead and still be ok. If I have to I'll run it in shifts tomorrow.

As for the deficit tracking, I went over my RMR yesterday, but I also exercised so let's see how it played out:

(RMR+Cals burned through exercise) - cals eaten = deficit amount

(2000+440) - 2256 = 184

That's 5% of a lb. At this rate, it'll take me almost a month to lose one lb. But I have to remember a 4 miler day is not my highest deficit - that's going to come on the days I do my 11 and my 13. And I don't always go over to the extent I did yesterday either. I know which particular food choice yesterday really made a difference - it was eating a tortilla wrap w/ PB and honey randomly. I felt like my body was craving it, but I wasn't really hungry. That's a lot of calories to satisfy a non-hungry craving.

So I should've ignored that one or thought of how to assuage it for a low calorie alternative.

I will do better today.

    I know what you mean about satisfying a craving with too many calories- I did that last night :-)
Hope you feel better!

    Dana, sounds like your body is fighting something (BTW, I have a sore throat and a fever, too so something is going around for sure), in which case it's probably better to NOT run a deficit. Your body needs strength to stay healthy!
