. . . except for the weigh-in. And I don't mean the weigh-in was bad, it just wasn't good. Danged scale still won't dip : ( I only want it to hit 145 one time, just *one time*!
I did meet my exercise goals, though. Did 3 days of Sun Run training, a long session, a short session and a long session. The training regime at this point usually nets me about 3k in distance so after I finish the training pattern of run/walk, run/walk I just keep on walking till I've covered a total of 5k. I want that mileage as much as I want the training results.
I was pretty conscientious with nutrition intake. Yesterday was a bust for the Nutrition Tracker as I spent the day on the road or in meetings. At the Regional District (sort of a county-level local government body where I occasionally fill in for the elected rep) they put a bowl of candies & nuts and another of salty snacks at each person's place around the Board Room Table. I'm strong for the first hour or so, putting the bowls away in my drawer under the table, but I know they're there and others around the table are dipping into their treat bowls as we discuss and debate, and eventually I succumb. Net result was about a 30% calorie overage yesterday. I stayed just below my level today and of course the Nutrition Tracker told me to smarten up. Tomorrow I'll stick to the low end of my nutrition range and feel expiated for yesterday's indulgence. All only minor blips in the Long Haul, I know.
Before signing off, I'd just like to say
to all of you Sparkers who read and responded so encouragingly to my last blog. Much appreciated!
