Week 6. . .

Weight loss: 0lbs, wt loss to date: 8lbs

This was an interesting week, a few things to share:

1. My "cheat" day last Sunday involved anything I wanted to eat and I realize at this point in my "Sugar Recovery phase" that was a mistake. I struggled all week with will power when it came to sugary foods (did not help that the kids were putting together Valentines packages) and this has not been the case for the past 5 weeks. This is completely due to the fact that I had sugary foods last Sunday. From now on, when I hit a plateau, I will still have cheat meals but no sugar - Pizza seems to be my biggest craving right now and 2-3 slices will do the trick!

2. I am feeling a lot leaner so I am not concerned about my lack of wt. loss this week, I am assuming I am gaining muscle along the way so this process will be slow, which is fine. My goal of being about 185-190lbs when I compete in my next race is very attainable as I probably won't be competing again till fall and my next really long one will be in 2011 or 2012!

3. Going to start counting carbs again, I think I am eating a bit too much fruit at this point for my goals. I will log my carbs this week and keep them under 150grams per day and see if that helps spark the process along.....

Thanks for all the great comments, it is much easier doing this journey with others!
