I didn't get to LAWL yesterday for my Day 200, 50 pounds lost event. Just too busy at work. I wished I had made it, because today I'm up a bit on the scale. I probably won't hit that magic 50 today at weigh in.
I'm sure the small gain is because since Saturday I've been having snack attacks around 9 or 10 at night and eating 400-600 calories of starchy crap. Last night was the worst--I'll spare you the food porn. Let's just say that being up a pound is a nice wake up call. I'm going to get diligent about keep my calories down around 1400 calories so I can get to goal. It's just silly to work hard and do great all day, then blow it in a span of 10 minutes.
On a positive note, I ran 3.7 miles yesterday and ran my fastest 5K yet--32:51. Today I hope to run 4 miles.
It is finally cooling off outside and the first touch of fall is in the air today. Tomorrow the highs are supposed to be 70-75. I have 2 long sleeve shirts and 2 pairs of pants that fit me, that I bought this summer on the 70% off rack. I don't have an overcoat or sweaters or business jackets that fit. So I need to go shopping. What an excellent problem to have. I just hope I can find some Fall sales so I'm not paying full price to replenish my wardrobe.
I've added a sidebar with my total running miles in 2007. I spent part of my Saturday night updating my exercise spreadsheet with addition formulas to calculate my total mileage each week. I was completely surprised to see I'd already run over 100 miles since March.
It's for totally practical reasons, so I know when to replace my running shoes. Uh huh, yeah right. It's because I'm a numbers nerd when it comes to goals and I *need* those numbers to help me keep moving. I'm sure Wendy will be very proud of me. =)
