Ship’s Log–May 13th


It is fascinating to me how much food I need to eat to hit the 500 calorie per day deficit I’ve got planned. Even with everything listed below, I was still 100 calories short today according to my log, though since I don’t bother with logging condiments I was perhaps just a bit over rather than under.

I am now very curious to see how tracking my food like this will impact my training and goal to shed a few pounds. I’ve been on a plateau for so long that I was starting to think I would never get off it.
