I feel like I struggled a bit during this half training trying to feed myself well so that I wouldn't lose weight, but not too much so that I wouldn't gain. I know I over ate some on the week-ends, knowing I needed the calories, because I was burning so much! I know I gained muscle because I increased my weights and faithfully went to zumba and toning 2-3 days per week. I can see the difference!!! I updated my ticker to own up to the 5 lb gain. Training was over so time to pull it back and get strict with my foods again as I did before. I lost 3.2 lbs this week, maybe even more, because 145 was just the average I have kept for the past 2 months, I've seen fluctuations from 144-147 on the scale. This just makes me feel really positive and also, owning the numbers, sharing them with all of you, pushes me even harder. I can't worry about the scales when I am running 20-30 miles a week, but I can use them to keep myself in check. Feeling strong and in control!!
