|A clydesdale at rest.|
After running my first 10K, I found myself catching up on time with family, a busy work schedule and letting a dull pain in my knee heal up with some rest. I weighed in last week for the first time last Saturday to set a new baseline.
Food: This week, I ate really well at approx 1,750 calories per day. Most of the food was proteins (egg whites, some cheese, cream for the coffee and non-fat milk), fruits and carrots. I also had some cereal, which I have to get rid of from my diet. It is not healthy for me and I tend to overeat it.
Liquids: I drank tons of water, no soda, and a beer or two.
Exercise: Nothing this past week. A light run the week before. Terrible.
Confessional: After the last few months of steady running or cycling mileage, I also ate more fatty foods, which included more sugar. That sugar is addictive and I see that I still need to work on reducing those cravings. Another week or so of healthy food and those cravings should go away.
My Goals for this Week:
• Drop another 3 pounds.
• Continue to pursue goal of 275 weight by March 31st!
• 50 miles this week: 40 on the bike, 10 on my feet.
• Eat 1,700 daily calories of good healthy food, more green veggies.
Make it a good week everyone!
