Day 10 - Got the running part down - need to work on my food issues.

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

Day 10 is almost over and I have had another successful day. No cravings at all. I did get real hungry at dinner because I did not have my usual snack at 3 pm but I was not really hungry. I think I must be getting used to eating smaller amounts. I do eat a lot of protein and I think that helps keep me full most of the day. Speaking of that, I think I will eat a boiled egg for my nighttime snack.

Running on the treadmill last night was awesome! I really wanted to do it again tonight but I had decided a while back that until I lost some more weight I was not going to run as much as I used to. I keep getting these mysterious little injuries or aches and pains so I decided that I would adhere to Galloway's training plan which is only two days of running for at least 30 minutes. I still have 50 pounds to lose and I don't want to injure myself beyond repair! After 3 half marathons, numerous 10K and 5Ks, I believe I have the running part down pat! Now, I need to focus on the eating part.

I never really changed my eating while I was running so no wonder I didn't lose weight. I can see how I could easily eat more calories than I was burning. I bet if I totaled up a days worth of what I used to eat, it would be over 3,000 calories and some days I bet it was more than that! But no more people!!! I refuse to let food have control over me. This is my life and I choose to live it HEALTHY for a change!

How about you?

Calories Out 2953
Calories In 1651
Deficit: 1302

I hesitate to report these stats from bodybugg because the calories burned sound outrageous because today all I did was sit and type most of the day. But that is what it says. I know that once I get smaller that number will go down. I am probably burning so much because I am so overweight. Any bodybuggers out there and if so what do you think?

    It does sound like a lot of calories if you were sitting. Do you figit a lot when you sit? How much you weigh does make a difference. Have you tried manually estimating your BMR (there's an article in SparkPeople that tells you how, plus lots more on the web) as a double check?
