Trip and weight loss

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Going out of town is hard on weightloss but I think I did well. I came back the same weight. It was hard. When everyone went to the cheesesteak restaurant I was happy taking a couple bites of my husbands sandwhich. I also have yogurt and granola at the all you can eat breakfast. I did buy a dozen fresh cookies and brought home but I froze half of them. I stopped at a smoothie place to get a kale pineapple one for a snack. It also helped that we did lots of walking.

We got home in time for the snow storm which put a damper on my running. I am a little nervous about my half marathon in two weeks. I know I ran 10 miles but that was two weeks ago. I plan on going 10 miles again on Friday a week before the race. Not the best of plans but really no other option. Running 10 miles on a treadmill would put me in a mental institution. Food has been good even my trainer was happy with my loss. Lent started and I gave up alcohol so that will be an extra 500 calorie weekly deficit.

    Good for you! Eating in restaurants is problematic under the best of conditions, and when traveling there is no choice. Congrats!!

    Good for you, giving up alcohol for Lent. And for keeping your weight steady (good choices, portion control and exercise) on the trip. Good luck on your half-marathon!

    You did great on your trip and since! Very impressive. I'm too weak to give up alcohol for lent this year. I have in the past and it has been good for me. Stay strong. You'll do fine in your race, just take it easy.

    You will do fine. Don't stress the race - trust your training.

    I think you will be just fine for the Half! Even if you didn't get in another long run, you have a good enough base that you could do it and be fine...just don't go for a PR or anything! :-)

    Good job on handling vacation eating so well! I'm proud of you!!

    I've got a hm in 2 weeks, too. I'm using a training plan from the Asics website. The longest runs are only 11 miles.
    This winter has really sucked for trying to get runs in. I'll probably end up being about a total of 30 miles short of my scheduled mileage. It has me a little worried, too.
