Day 78. Average is Good

The big picture:

  • Friday, 08-23-2013, 170.5 (Buffet and 11-mile run)
  • Saturday, 08-24-2013, 171 (Buffet, dessert, and fantasy football fun)
  • Sunday, 08-25-2013, 173.5 (Portion control and helping a friend)
  • Monday, 08-26-2013, 171

Morning Weight 171. Back to average and that is a good thing.

What does this reveal? You can eat and still maintain, but there is a price to pay. Either through sweat equity or self-control. Life lesson #78 – Pay the price of discipline or pay the price of regret, either way you pay. This is not an exact quote from one of my mentors Jim Rohn (not the King of Smack guy, but he’s cool too!) Bottom line … choose wisely.

Food and Exercise

Today’s Activities:

  • 10:20am – Runkeeper 4 mile + strides. The strides at a 95% effort. Noticed running later in the morning does feel a bit more draining. The weather heats up slightly, but nutrition seems to be the key to distance. My morning shake was 2 hours before. I did have 8 ounces of Prepare, but no half-banana. Overall, splits are good and confidence is building as I learn more about my body and nutrition.
