Ship’s Log–May 9th


Another day tracking calories, and again I find that my calories are lower than my activity. This explains my persistent afternoon snack attacks. Balancing my fluctuating levels of training with my daily food is harder than I thought. So even though it frustrates me a bit, I’m going to keep logging my food in Fitbit for now.

Losing weight during this phase of my training for June’s run is probably unrealistic, too. My training is at it’s peak intensity, which means I need those calories for muscle repair and energy replenishment. If I cut it too low, I’m going to start struggling more and more to meet my time goals. I like that right now I’m beating them on a regular basis, even with the extra few pounds of junk in the trunk.
