Well, I’m back to calorie counting again. I didn’t gain much since I stopped in March, which I’m appreciative of. Now that it’s the summer, I find myself a bit bummed that C25K is going to be ridiculously difficult to do in this heat/humidity. I’ll probably have to workout at 7:30 at night or something so I don’t pass out, but I’m determined to get back to it. I’d love to be able to get into running a 5k (or two) come Fall, so I have the whole summer (man, I’ll need it, I’m sure) ahead of me to get through the C25K.
This blogger’s post called Hey, Fat Girl totally struck a chord with me. As a fat gal who wogs (my word for the weird walk/jog combination that I do), this post was so refreshing to read. I always wonder what people think when they see me jogging. I know I’m not a legit runner at all. I do know that when most people see me run in the neighborhood, they probably hear me breathing heavily and struggling to make those last 10 seconds happen during the running parts of the C25K program. :- It’s not pretty, folks.
Now, as much as I’m dreading the summer for my work-outs, I can’t help but LOVE the summer, food-wise. Creole tomatoes are my favorite variety of tomatoes, and my plants are flowering like crazy. These tomatoes are so flavorful…all you need is a little salt and pepper. It’s also the season for berries, watermelon, corn (OMG grilled corn), cucumbers and peppers. All of those things will definitely help me make better decisions, calorie-wise.
Are any of y’all calorie counting, too? If you’d like to friend me on MyFitnessPal, here’s my profile. I love having friends on there to keep me accountable.
