This weekend I started to realize that I needed to get super focused if I was going to hit my weight goals (I want to be in the 1's by the end of October). So I got up and did some weight lifting. Then I did incline work on the treadmill at an incline of 10-15. I learned this can burn about 900 calories in an hour for me. After that I ran. I feel all ready to take on the world again.
I also made some new food goals. I am still sticking with my 1800-2000 calories because this seems to be my sweet spot, but I am not allowing myself to buy anything from a gas station.
I am on the road a lot for my job and sometimes if I am not prepared or I don't pack enough food, I find myself stopping for sugary snacks at a gas station. I justify it by saying I have the calories available.
However, this both messes up my financial goals (2 or 3 dollars here or there adds up) but it also makes me crave more sugar.
So I am trying to get really focused, especially only 4 weeks before the marathon (yikes). I definitely want to put my body in the best possible condition it can be for this thing so it's not miserable.
