As seen from my previous post, I finished week two of the Frank to 5k program, and I'm really having fun with it! Fitness did not come without some difficulties though. I run on the elliptical on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the running program but I had to alter that since Wednesday was a holiday. We were invited to an all day barbecue for the 4th of July which is always great, but the downfall to that was having a lot to eat. Surprisingly I did really well. Caloric intake was almost 3,000 that day. I planned to let go on this day because
- I've done amazing over the past month as far as my caloric intake goes
- I planned to be active quite a bit that day to counteract the food I was going to consume
- I read in one of the forums on MyCalorieCounter.com that when there are special occasions it's okay to eat to eat to maintain weight rather than restricting calories on that day.
