Today's challenge: Keeping on-calorie and getting my speed work-out done during lunch
Actual fitness: at least 4 x 1,200 at between 7:00 to 7:30 pace. I didn't actually have the distance measured out, so I ran hard for 5:37 which is a 7:30 pace. Judging the distances that I was covering, I estimate I was probably running faster than 7:30. Maybe next week I'll go on a track with a stop watch. Four miles total.
Note on no caffeine and no sweet-n-low: Had no stomach upset last night even after running two miles shortly after eating some chicken and rice. Did have a headache in the afternoon that was what I would call "mild". Trying to eat fewer calories 1,500 last night versus 2,000. Need to keep at 1,400 today.
Note on photo: Just because this is a diet blog, doesn't mean I'm only posting pictures of healthy food. I've noticed that since I'm on a diet, I love to look at food. We picked up this doughnut last night for my husband. We got it at the same place that makes my chocolate covered creme filled bismarks.(you know the doughnut I'm going to reward myself with after I reach my goal weight? ) In fact, I saw some of those doughnuts last night and even talked about bringing one home to photograph. But my husband says to me, "So, you're going to take a picture of it, but not eat it? Maybe you should just take a picture of mine."
How could I bring home a chocolate covered creme filled bismark and not eat it? Or even worse give it away and watch someone else eat it. That would be the true test of strength wouldn't it? So, here you have it, the chocolate covered creme filled bismark's cousin...a glazed doughnut. And not just any glazed doughnut. This is a very yummy glazed doughnut. Big beautiful raised, with slightly crispy, fried outside. Anyway enough about doughnuts.
