Today’s Weight: 158.8 lbs.
Exercise: I ran 3.16 miles in a little over 34 minutes, the longest distance I’ve run without stopping in many, many months. It felt good, easy even. I’ll have to work on improving my time, but I’m happy with my accomplishment for now. Also, when I got home I made it through about 15 minutes of a Zumba workout before I felt like I was putting serious stress on a groin muscle. Instead of persevering, I stopped and stretched and called it a day. Better to go a little easy on myself today and still be able to move tomorrow to try again.
Food: So far, I’ve had almond milk yogurt and blueberries, and four or five glasses of water. I’ll most likely have soup and an egg later in the day, then maybe fish and some sauteed veggies for dinner, depending on what SparkPeople.com says about my calorie allotment.
Last night after posting, I used MS Word to create a calendar sheet depicting January. In each day I inserted three lines of text: “Run Miles:”, “Zumba ?”, and “Weight:”. Then I put it up on my refrigerator. Every day I’m going to weigh myself first thing, record that on the fridge, then go running and do a Zumba workout and record my mileage and whether or not I did Zumba. I’m going to aim for burning between 500 and 800 calories a day with exercise, and abstaining from all of the crap food I’m supposed to be avoiding, anyway. I think I can easily be 155 by the end of the month, and 150 by the end of next month if I just concentrate on eating like a non-mutant and training for this upcoming 5K on January 29th, and then pick another 5K to train for in February.
