I've even started logging my intake with The Daily Plate at LiveStrong.com (it says I need more calories). I believe this new plan (posted 8/28) will bring a new liveliness to my efforts. So today I'm full of enthusiasm, compounded by the fact that, despite my pessimism, I LOST 5 POUNDS!
I have no idea how it happened, but I'm also not about to give it back. Today's run combined with the news of a substantial loss for this week has got me on cloud 9.
I'm ready to take on whatever is next. My race is in 2 weeks and I've never felt more ready for something. With more free time starting this week I'm going to hit the trails, doing what I love, using multi-million dollar military satellites to search for Tupperware hidden in the woods. You'll be hearing a lot more from me soon as I step into phase 2. Come follow me!
