I was disappointed to see the scale number. My disappointment isn't with myself. I exercised. I ate healthy. I stuck to my training plan. My disappointment is simply in that I really wanted to be much lighter for my marathon. I am scheduled to be finished with the calorie restriction after this week. I don't want to be working on an energy deficit as I approach the race. I guess I should have started to the calorie restriction thing a month earlier. Oh well...coulda, shoulda, woulda.
On the other hand, I was pleasantly surprised at some of the other numbers. If my measurements were accurate, My fat ratio went down. I gained lean mass. I lost fat mass. I lost an entire inch off my waist. That is all huge in my book and I am very happy with that.
Perhaps the next week, I will continue to lose fat, but not gain any lean. That's my hope at least.
We had some great weather here at the end of last week. It got up to 70. I can't wait until we have that weather all the time. This week is starting off bad. Rain today, tomorrow, and Wednesday. Wednesday's rain is supposed to be mixed with snow (Boo!). However, I must ratchet up my miles this week, so I am doomed to run in the cold rain. I don't mind warm and rainy, but cold and rainy is simply miserable. I don't know how they do it in Oregon and Washington. I just hope that I don't get sick.
