Not exactly thrilled, but expected. Like I’ve been saying, there was a good week and a half of indulging in pretty much everything – there were several meals out, lots of cake and ice cream, and home-made hand-painted cookies to finish off. Needless to say, we did a lot of eating over the last week or so.
This week has been far more controlled and frankly I’m thrilled – after a while, I get tired of restaurants and desserts. I can eat at a restaurant maybe twice a month before I start getting frustrated and wanting home-cooked food. Weird, I know, but I am who I am.
I’m looking forward to a few more weeks of control. I’m starting to get high mileage, so I’m thinking I need to change my eating regimen from here on in to maximize my run potential. I’m sort of hoping that in finding some good run-worthy recipes, I also find some healthy meals that end up helping the overall goal of losing weight. We’ll see what happens.
