I’ve gone way way way off planMay 3, 2011
Okay, eating has gone way off plan. I’m eating an average of 2500 calories a day! And it’s mostly cookies after dinner. I think I was definitely using cigarettes to prevent or curb my habit of overeating. But that’s just substituting one problem for another. I need to get to root of my compulsive habits. And as that will take time, I need healthier substitutes and coping mechanism. And yes the overeating means …. no smoking! It’s been almost 10 days now and I’m feeling quite thrilled to be a nonsmoker once again.
Running and exercise has been good, except I strained my lower back on my 12 mile training run on Sunday and have been out of commission for the past few days. There’s no exercise I can think of that wouldn’t strain my back. I’m hoping tomorrow will be better.
I’ve got a few weeks til the half marathon. I’m going to get down to 185 by then (this morning weighted in at 191.8).
The plan til the half:
1500 calories a day, except my long run days (once a week) when I can net 1500 calories
Exercise: Run 4 days a week, Cross train at least one day, Walk to or from work as often as possible.
Fingers crossed and feet hitting the pavement…….
