I moved from Mexico to France when I was 26 and there I learned to eat really good food, drink wine and beer but somehow I managed not to gain weight, so I was still a little overweight but not awful. I guess the fact that I was active and my food choices were not that terrible helped.
But 5 years later I moved to USA and OMG! without noticing at first, I started gaining weight until I was about 20 pounds overweight in just over a year! I just started buying larger clothes sizes, and didn't really think about it. I don't even remember how I...
I am not forcing myself to eat ‘healthy’ as I LOVE vegetables and what not. If it was not for the love of beef I would not mind being a vegetarian.
For example today I had a 200 calorie breakfast and a 460 calorie lunch. That leaves me 1040 calories for the rest of the evening. I can really enjoy dinner for sure for the amount of calories there!
Yesterday my boss gave us a huge bag of chips each. I was fasting so I did not touch it, I am not fasting today but I am not touching it as I don’t really like chips nor the flavour he gave me so I’ll bring i...
I usually consider Saturday as my official weigh in day, but this week it comes after a fast because of bank holiday on Thursday here in Italy. I usually fast on Monday and Thursday, but I switched to Friday so to enjoy the family meal.
Weight wise I had a very good week. I stayed most of the days in the 75kg range and today it is 75.9Kg. Looking at my chart I can see that in the last days the yo-yoing is peaking always lower, meaning that I am loosing weight, even if it seems that I am struggling a bit more to get to the lower 75 or even 74kg range.
My training is going fine and I am increasing the mileage (done so far 58km this week) and will have a short run today and a loger one tomorrow morning that will bring me around 85/90km this week. Next Saturday I have another 6hr race and I really will try to reach the 60km during those hours hopefully beating my PB of last year of 58.2km.
Speaking of PB, it is a few days...
Today I have had no cake or biscuits or chocolate and I do not want them. Tomorrow it could be different but it is one day at a time for now. I know how quickly it can all go wrong!
Life continues to be hard but I just have to get on with it!
