The really important thing is how good I feel. When I eat right and workout regularly I feel just awesome. Not only do I have energy but I also feel much more comfortable in my skin - if that makes any sense at all. I had to go somewhere yesterday and I had to dress nice. Afterward I stopped at Target looking for something and as I was strutting through the store I realized how awesome I felt. I was standing tall and really strutting and I just felt fantastic. To me that is why I work out and eat right. When I feel like that there is nothing I can't do. I love it. Also, it makes 7 months, 5 marathons, 1 year to prepare seem not only possible but likely. I still haven't completely committed to that, I tend to jump into things without thinking it through, So I'm trying to give this lots and lots of thought before I commit outright. Though I have started training for it :)
One of the things that I want to do and keep forgetting, is to log my calories eaten every day. I'm shooting for a top end of 1500 per day. Here is how the last few days look:
Day 1: 1900
Day 2: 1830
Day 3: 1375
Day 4: 1550
So, after a somewhat rocky start I seem to be getting my act together. The thing is none of what I've eaten in the last 4 days is junk of any kind and even though I ate more then I wanted to the first 2 days , I felt awesome!!! That is what I need to focus on - how I feel. The number on the scale will always let me down, but how I feel will always steer me right.
