I went running again yesterday and it went great. I shaved two minutes of my time on my 5km run. I ended with a sprint. I have energy again! I am so relieved!
I have a feeling that those 2 kilos I picked up will be gone in no time. Yesterday when I was cooking I didn't feel tempted at all to eat the cookies that were on the counter. It's great not to feel hungry all the time. Makes life a lot easier.
I will do some strength training at the office today if it's quiet, and go running again on Thursday. Then I'll do my long run on Saturday.
Remember a while ago I started reading through a list of classic must-read books? I'm now working my way through Anna Karenina. I listen to the audio book while running and it's a great motivation to get out there and run.
Really, I can't tell you what a difference it makes to eat a bit more. I can continue on my journey now, whereas a week ago I was actually crying (embarrassing) because I couldn't stand the idea of being hungry for the rest of my life.
I think I'll recalculate my calorie intake every month, just to make sure I'm still on the right track and I don't go through such a disheartening few weeks again.
