    So crazy. I felt like absolute crap in the morning and I didn't feel like running or doing my typical strength training workout. So I pulled out my old 30 Day Shred DVD and tried the first workout. It felt so easy! It felt good to realize how far I've come from. So after that workout I felt great the rest of the day. I was really surprised because I had really not been feeling well at all.

    Today is Saturday and I ran 13.1 miles this morning! I'm so happy. I'll write more about it in my Saturday post later.

    I gained! I have remained within my calorie limits but I have been increasing my carbs. I think the weight gain is due to the larger glycogen stores in my muscles, which also hold more water. I was sure I'd be posting a loss today. Just yesterday all three of my jeans were fitting me better and my waist felt tiny! Oh well, can't win em all.

    My OH and I had one slice each and my parents had a couple of slices. I think I done ok for my first attempt at baking anything 😋 Thankfully I stuck to one slice!

    It's been a weird week. I've had days of feeling amazing, to days of feeling so unwell. This morning I woke up with another headache which left me feeling stressed about the long run I had planned. I wasn't feeling confident and started my run two hours later than I normally do. I was totally dragging my feet. Today I really wanted to actually go a full 13.1 miles before my half marathon in less than 2 weeks. I wanted to go the full distance to see how I could expect the full run to go, but when I set out this morning I wasn't sure if I'd even be able to go 3 miles. I just told myself, go slow, you have nothing to prove here, you've done the work. if your body says no, it's not big deal. Maybe you can try again tomorrow. Just go slow and steady for as long as you can. I had my husband at home on standby waiting for a phone call in case he had to pick me up somewhere. Well... I did it. The whole 13.1 miles. Although I started slow and steady, I actually beat my previous fastest half marathon time (which was three years ago) and have a new personal best! (By seconds, haha) So what did I do when I got home? Ate about 1000 calories and took a bath. Yes, I was even eating while in the bath. No, I wasn't famished, but I wanted those calories spent while my metabolism was still en fuego.

    I really do want to lose more weight, but when training for half marathons cutting too many calories won't give you the best performance. I've been playing around with increasing my carbs and intermittent fasting this month. I have to say, other than those weird headaches, I feel like my runs have been better this month than they ever have been. I think the new changes have been pretty beneficial. I just hope the scale is kinder to me next week.

    I went over my calories on purpose yesterday. I am going to try to vary my calories to jostle my metabolism a little. I am going to TRY to stay well under today.


    @CindyJNC1963 Have you thought about giving intermittent fasting a try, it can really help get through plateaus, and it can be simple like only eating in an 8 hour window each day or even something like 5:2, where you cut your calories way down on 2 days...just wondering if you were at the point yet where you might want to push through and try something drastically different to jostle your metabolism..there is a loooooot of research that suggest intermittent fasting is one of the most beneficial things you can do for your body, metabolism and mind, and I'll say that the days that I get it right, I feel the best.

    While I respect and admire people who can fast, there is just no way I could do it....not yet anyway.
