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!
