Iím frustrated with myself. I know better, but I keep feeling like because Iím doing so much running recently, I can eat pretty much whatever I want. I havenít been really consistent about tracking and Iím seeing the results of that on the scale. Iím going to be the only person ever to GAIN weight while training for a marathon if I donít knock it off. I know what I need to do and just because Iíve ramped up my workouts, it doesnít give me clearance to eat a bunch of junk. In fact BECAUSE Iíve ramped up my workouts, I should be eating more mindfully.
I had a better day yesterday, ate responsibly and tracked everything. Today is Day #2 of getting my eating back on track. I gained a couple pounds back and I need to turn this train around. Iíve also been avoiding the scale until today. To me, thatís a tell-tale sign Iím being stupid about my diet. From this point on, weekly weigh-ins are Wednesday mornings again. I have a pretty strenuous workout week with my marathon training plan so I should see the scale drop if I can get the eating back in check. Maybe I can try to sneak in some extra cross training time at night if I get a run or two done in the morning and that will help too.
