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.
