My Month of May - Day 13

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

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.

Hooray! Health!

    Yay! Glad to hear eating more has made you feel better. I woke up feeling better this morning for a run and I'm sure it's because I ate more - I don't have the same exhaustion today as I did Sunday either thankfully.

    I think I'll be doing the same thing as you are re-calculating my calorie intake each month too. It just still feels so weird to be told to eat more to lose weight. Kind of messes with your brain a bit after so many years of "dieting" and being told to not eat very much. I'm not complaining though if it means I can eat more :p
