one down, one to go

tuesday nights' temptation aside, the cravings for the sugar really are lessening. really, they are. now its' more of a wistful longing. week one of the sugar purge is over. and i have never thought about frosting so much in my life. and i don't really do frosting. really, i don't. but its clearly in my subconscious. cause long before the sugar purge, there was this dream. i don't get it.

okay. i digress. one more week of purge to go. i've been good with my homework and have more assignments for this week. i've been keeping a log. a log of food and fatigue levels. the visual of the numbers has been a huge eye opener. now i need to pay attention to how the food affects the running depending on what, when and how much i've eaten. and in much the same way i love having all the numbers of paces and mileage so i can geek out over all the stats, i now have another set of numbers to add to the geek factor. now, if i can only get it all into some sort of pie chart.

The worst part is over. CONGRATS you are one tough cookie. (sorry couldn't help myself - I loved the pie chart comment!)

I love a good can of frosting. :D

Can you read my post when you have time and see if you have further hill advice? Should I be running several miles the same day or not?

Thanks, Zanne!!

Question for you...I find that when I try to cut out sweets, I end up eating more of other foods to try and stop the cravings. This obviously not so much the goal of the exercise...how are you combatting the cravings?

I have a very simple way to figure the whole thing out: if it doesn't upset the stomach or make me have to hurry home for the bathroom, I'm good. All jokes aside, you DO learn what works and what doesn't, but only with trial and error. Alays err on the side of less though.

hey amanda. part of the goal for me here is to increase my caloric intake. so eating more isn't a problem, its good. i'm just making sure i eat more of the right things. when i want something sweet - i'll have an apple with peanut butter, or a pear. and a flax seed whole grain waffle with chocolate peanut butter and bananas really does the trick! i'm still running 30+ miles a week ... have finally realized that i need more food. food = better, faster, happier run!
