Today marked the three week milestone in following the Racing Weight program contained in Matt Fitzgerald's book of the same name. Last week wasn't my best effort. I was quite ill each time I ate, and found it tremendously difficult to get 30% of my diet from protein. I only skipped one workout - and that was Thursday when I traded weight training for yoga. Not bad for a girl with a stomach ache all week.
Oh, and I lost another 1.2lbs. That's 3.8lbs in 3 weeks. I pretty excited to measure my body fat next week at the one month marker. I would be so thrilled with a 1% reduction! That means more to me than the weight number.
Got up and did my fasting long workout for the week. Today was supposed to be an hour and ten minute run, nice and slow. I ended up running a bit longer to get a nice even 7 miles on my legs. It was SO dark and only 40 degrees. It was peaceful and crisp, and nice to just cruise the "hood loop" times 1.5.
My stomach has been a real pill today. I've stuck to simple foods such as bananas, toast, protein powder and nuts. I had a little chicken breast for lunch. I am very grateful that I didn't have an all out attack, but distressed that several times I was nauseated to the point where I needed to stop and focus on feeling better.
Tomorrow is a new day! I have a technique swim on the schedule. I'm kinda excited about using my new paddles and fins. I'm sure my arms will want to fall off - but I will have some PRETTY muscles.
