In fact, it seems like I ate a LOT of food yesterday, which I think was the case.
And the result? This morning's weigh in:
146.8Surprise! Down 3.4 pounds in 24 hours. I was convinced I would have packed on a few just due to water and food intake. I officially hit the 30 pounds lost mark from January '08.
I have NO idea what that 3.4 pounds means, other than I am 3.4 pounds lighter this morning than yesterday morning. If I continue to lose 3.4 pounds each day, then I will make a big deal out of it. A Tri friend mentioned to me that single day weight loss of that magnitude is most likely water loss.
So this morning I ran 5 miles, with 10 x 20 second hill sprints included. The first couple were not that bad, then I felt as light as a feather during the middle sprints, then the last 4 or so had my lungs BURNING at the top. Overall, I felt flat, but I think that was more due to that strength workout from yesterday. My glutes are REALLY tight!
For breakfast, I had a grapefruit, handful of cherries, handful of black berries, and an orange. I LOVE cherries!
And do you know what today is? That last day of the mornings getting darker. For here on out, the mornings will only get lighter. Phew! This really helps me with running in the morning. The cold doesn't bother me, its the dark that really kills me. I HATE wearing headlamps!
For lunch it was Turkey breast with steamed green beans a salad with oil and vinegar with avocado, lettuce, chickpeas, cucumber, green pepper and cherry tomatoes. Avocado is getting tastier and tastier! This mostly held me over till 7, when I ate dinner. It didn't hold me over as well as yesterday's lunch salad.
Speaking of dinner:

Tomorrow's weigh in should be interesting.
