Logged 4.7 km more to my training and went down 2 lbs this week!

Tuesday, June 09, 2009


I have been doing the x-weighted challenge with MizzD and I have to say that this week has been a success. I have gone running again today (4.7 km) after having jogged on Sunday (5 km) and I went down 2 lbs.

Today the run was faster paced, to build stamina, develop muscle, and cut overall running time. I am very happy!

I do not feel like I am in a weight loss challenge, and I feel like I can keep this pace for a long time. I am eating the same, I just exercise moderation. Tracking the calories, is a great thing, and also understanding the caloric differential for the day.

One thing that made me see the light is the understanding that if you have a caloric differential of -500 per day, you will loose weight at a rate of 1 lbs per week. I never really translated the numbers before, and now I see it, understand it, and I am applying it without stress, just plain awareness of what I do on a daily basis.

Anyway, I am going for a well deserved hot shower!

    We're off to a great start! Not to knock Coach Lucy (too much), but it is more fun to run with a friend than a dog. The conversations are better, for one thing.....
    And I don't have to pick up after a friend!

    I find that I've started many programs that are impossible to keep up on a long-term, yet that's what its all about. If you are going to get tired of the activity, its not likely you'll stick with it. But, when you see results AND you love it ~ well, that's a winning combo.
