My weight loss has slowed down this week. No, more accurately put, I’ve gained. Very little, but a gain is a gain. Okay, perhaps I am obsessing too much. I just want this whole diet thing to be done with already. I want to be at the end point already.
It’s not that I have gone off course. I believe it is because I’ve gotten lazy. “Lazy” in my tracking of my calories. I’ve just been blindly following the JC plan and trying to stick to it as much as possible. In fact, I’ve just been packing a breakfast item, lunch item, package of dressing, and snack in my bag each day. My latte counts as a milk and I add a piece of fruit in the morning. At lunch, I add a salad to the JC meal. I eat the snack prior to leaving for home and another snack before I cook dinner for the family. I eat my JC dinner with 2 additional vegtables, and then another snack.
But, I have discovered that I have probably been too short on calories in the past 4-5 days. I input yesterday’s food intake into my palm program only to find a deficit of 650 calories. That’s 200 less calories than I’ve planned. I wonder how bad it was over the weekend when I had 1 and 2 hour runs, and a 1 hour bike ride. Sometimes I think that I am too obsessive about things and so I ease up. Just look what happens.
Then there’s my running obsessing. I’ve always been religious about tracking the miles on my shoes, but I have been lazy lately. While I have been good about identifying which shoes I run in on BTT, it appears that I missed some miles along the line. My right upper outer shin is tender to touch. Just tender, but this is the first sign. While it is nothing alarming, I will not ignore body. It is calling for new shoes, ice, and another day of cross training.
I guess there are benefits to my Type-A tendencies.
Track – Track – Track.
