Weight: 217.0 lb (-1.8 lbs this week, -9 lbs total)
According to my measurements, I’ve gained inches, but my pants were falling off on the stairs this afternoon. Guess I’ve got the post-dinner bloat?
I’m officially at the point of being bored with counting calories. It’s time consuming and I tend to eat the same things everyday because it’s easier to input it. I’m also starting to have weird cravings (Trader Joe’s Mac and Cheese). I don’t think I’m eating enough carbohydrates based on the numbers I’m seeing and my cravings. It’s hard, though, to stay within the calorie limit and eat all the protein Rebecca recommends (148g a day).
Sidenote if you are new: I’m currently doing the Strong Body by Rebecca cyber training for a month. I’m about 2.5 weeks in to the program, which includes diet and workouts e-mailed to me at the beginning of the month.
Speaking of protein, it felt like an angry baby gremlin was punching me in the kidney all yesterday. My father and sister both get horrible kidney stones, so I really know better than to consumer this much protein without a lot of water. And for some reason, my water intake has drastically slowed despite the heat. It’s kind of annoying to have to go refill my Bobble every hour, so I think I might invest in the liter size.
The bad news is that my piriformis/IT band (right side) are too injured for me to run Warrior Dash on 7/31. My doctor gave me the impression that Warrior Dash isn’t particularly safe when you aren’t injured and I have to say that Sara and I had some pretty negative experiences with the company even before this, so I don’t think either of us will sign up again. Maybe I can do Hell Run this fall instead? I’ll probably do a 5K that day instead since it counts for Race Club.
The neutral news is that we finally found out why all my hair is falling out (seriously, I pull clumps out of my ponytail). My Synthroid was too high and I basically had drug-induced hyperthyroidism. Too bad it didn’t make me skinny. The doctor adjusted my dose, so hopefully that’ll also help with my appetite (too much thyroid hormone can make you hungry).
Things that are awesome:

So, what’s your threshold for running outside? This morning was tough at 75 degrees and a millionty percent humidity, but I had a great run. Tomorrow is supposed to be significantly hotter, but I’m probably too stupid to can the run.
Does anyone else watch Teen Mom? I’m so ashamed that I can’t stop watching this show!
What song is Rufus listening to on his iPod?
