BLC 18: WUB.1

Sunday, April 21, 2013

This week I got a second job, started an advanced 5k program, lost over 6 pounds and completed a 9 day work week if you count my road trip to my interview.

One of my biggest challenges is going to be not eating when I get back home from work, especially when I'm not hungry. I've been in a rut where I base my meals off of time of occasion, like after work, before I go out, ect... and a lot of it I'm not hungry. When that happens before bedtime I think that could be bad as well.

My current mile time is 12:48, last season on BLC17 I ended at 13:16. This is still a horrible shot in the dark away from my fall running time of a 10:44 minute mile.

I currently weigh 280.6. I have a co worker that doesn't believe me. Perhaps I don't have 113lbs to lose after all? :-/ :-P

    Hi Hal!

    Good letter to self, also.
    Yeah, planning for meal times can be tricky, especially if your schedule is constantly changing. You don't want to get caught up to much in "meal time" times though. What I mean is, just because others are eating breakfast at 6:00 am, lunch at 12 noon, and dinner at 5:00 pm does not mean you have to too. Plan YOUR meal times around YOUR schedule, and if 5-6 mini meals works better than 3 big ones with snacks, then go for it! Sometimes you have to think outside that proverbial box.

    To be blunt, this winter sucked for a lot of folks. Yea Spring!! Your mile time will get better. Still going to the gym??

    Planning ahead for busy times can really make a difference. If you plan meals in advance, bring snacks with you, make sure you get enough water, it should help avoid that eating when you shouldn't or aren't hungry. Good luck and keep up the great work!
