“I have become fiercely determined to be fit and lose the last of the body fat. And I find that resisting the temptation to overeat is no longer the impossible chore it once was.”
Those were my words from last month’s report, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at my calorie intake for the month of June.
It was a bad month.
It started off well enough, and I was within the normal range of calories during the first week, but things just got out of hand from the second week onward and I didn’t dare step on the scale until today – a predictable 2 pound gain. I could give a few excuses/reasons (increased appetite with increased cardio, dining out, ice cream stands, etc.) but in the end, it all boils down to self control.
On the bright side, my half marathon training is going well, particularly since I switched out my supposed minimalist shoes (how can they even call them minimal with all that cushioning?) for a couple of pairs of barefoot shoes. Lightening the load and allowing the feet to perform as nature intended has increased my average pace per mile by a full minute!
And now for the shameful part… the actual reports:
|Daily Summary – for the week of June 2|
