Prerun Strategizing

Friday, October 11, 2013

Alright. So I made it to Friday. Tomorrow, I have to tutor students, but today I get to catch up and go to Nine Inch Nails and dance, spend time with friends, and by the end of this weekend, I will be caught up.

I lost two pounds this week, but now that I have been logging calories, I know where I am falling short.

I averaged about 1900 calories each day for the past week. That is a lot. I have been trying to eat low carb, high fat, but I think I have been adding fat where it is actually unnecessary and the calories are going up more easily. I do not need to add coconut oil to my daily dessert. The daily dessert should be omitted from diet entirely, but I'm obviously unwilling to do this, so I am going to keep it until the pain gets great enough. I think, as long as I'm working out and earning it, then it should be fine.

Kombucha easily makes me go over on carbs. I am overbrewing this batch purposely so that it has much less sugar remaining. Nonetheless, if I'm eating over my carbs each day, my fat should not be as high as it has been. I need to begin eating more tuna and chicken, rather than beef, sausage, and lunch meats. I can go on a bacon binge when I get out of this yogurt phase. It is one or the other.

I need to eat more salads. I think it will make me feel like I'm eating more. My whole frame of mind about daily consumption and portion control needs to change drastically. On days that I eat the planned amount of calories, I feel like I'm eating so little. I have been overeating for much of my life. It is so easy to do so.

I am going to try to run a full mile right now without stopping. I think I can, I think I can!

    I hope you had a good time at the NIN concert. My grownup children were there.
