Today I felt deliciously saucy. I limited my calorie intake during breakfast and lunch, an d upped my water intake again to take away from the hungry feeling. It’s not easy getting used to less calories while increasing exercise – but what I’m doing is cutting out the empty calories from my daily regimen…and it’s sad to say, but there were a TON of items in my normal dietary routine that brought absolutely no material value to me whatsoever. Seriously. What in the name of all that’s holy was I thinking?
Laziness. That’s all it was. Laziness.
The headaches begin at around 3pm, but I know what’s causing them – so I try to ignore them through taking in water and chomping on some raw almonds. Yeah – that’s culinary heaven.
My evening workout was a humdinger. Started with a relaxed 45 minute run, with no time or pace expectations. Transitioned to a 45 minute swim (before the sun set so that the water was at least quasi-warm), and then finished with some basic strength work. All in all, I put in about 2 hours of training…and I earned a glass of wine with dinner.
Today was a high volume day for me. There will be plenty more of these days coming in 2019. As I lose the weight, this will get easier. For now, I need to embrace the suck.
March 3rd…..4 hours on the bike with a goal of 80 miles or more in order to raise money to fight cancer. Please check out my Cycle for Survival donation page (I’ve attached the link below), and consider a donation to this important cause. Thanks!
