Week 12

The goals for week 12 were these:   Run, Bike, Swim and do elliptical further than the week before.  Keep eating well and paying attention to including ALL food groups in my diet.

Here is how the week went

Bad:  No measured distance of laps in a pool, but I did swim twice.

Great things about week 12:  All of my goals were met!!!  I ran a great amount of miles (met goals for marathon training).  Ran, biked and did elliptical further than week 10 and 11.  Even did a Yoga class.
Tried out the app on my phone called My fitness Pal since last Saturday and it has been awesome.  I am super pleased with it.  I have lost weight this week and I know it's because I'm finally eating right.  I saw a dietitian and she showed me that I wasn't eating enough on days that I work out hard.  We talked about the right amount of fats, proteins and carbs runners should take in.  I need more fats and I wasn't taking enough in.  Thus, why I was continuing to gain weight a little each week. Who would have known that I actually needed more fat in my diet?    I have followed her advice on foods I should have and I have tracked everything on My fitness pal for a week and lost 4 pounds.  Amazing.  After this I only expect to loose 2 pounds a week, but I'm excited because I feel amazing finally.  AND for the first time ever I totally understand how to eat.   I can eat whatever I want, as long as I take in a certain amount of fats, proteins, carbs and so on for me and my activity.  Days I work out hard, I may need 2600 calories, other days that I do next to nothing, then only 1460 calories.  So it varies and it WORKS!  Here's to another great week.
