I remember why I chose the 3 day diet oh so long ago to jump start my initial weight loss. It wasn't because I followed it to a "t" it's because it helped make it a habit to watch my calories, and gave me simple low cal ideas for meals and portions. So far it's been a complete success. I also changed my carb/ protien intake due to seeing the doctor on Friday. I saw an endochrinologist on Friday who said that adjusting my carb intake to 100-120 grams and upping my protien to 60 grams would be more important than cutting cals alone. I've been pretty good with sticking to it. I've lost a couple pounds to boot! Can't belive that's all it took. Oh, and I started Hal Higdon's 10k for Novice. I have set my first race for the year: The legends run 5k in July :D I'm doing the 10k program though to whip my ass in shape so maybe, just maybe I'll be as fast as I was when I PR'd last year. Fingers crossed. I'm sure with some hard work it will happen.

So I decided to modify my goals a a bit: First, walk daily. Doesn't matter when. This morning I walked for a bit, then ran for a bit. It worked. Second, no daily pics. I will take pics once a week, though. So today was pretty good. I kept within my calorie alotment (if you're interested, I'm tracking on myfitnesspal.com under fattymcrunnerpants... of course). I did have a slip up and ate some pasta salad but that's OK. Still come in pretty good. Oh and who knew spinach, carrots and PINAPPLE made such a wonderful smoothie? OMG "Lake Water" and Nutriblends is the shit. I had it after my intense cardio workout at the gym. Well, Cardio Kickboxing. Youch my legs hurt now. I didn't have too much of an issue keeping up aerobically wise but I as having a lot of difficulty with some of the moves. The extra gut flab is getting in the way. It needs to go. Now. So, plan for tomorrow: I have to go to the doctor's like 3 hours away however I am going to make time to go to the gym to hit the weights. Strength training tomorrow! Woot!
