Today I celebrate 7 days. 7 days of keeping my food consumption 'in check', and moderately exercising.
I upped my calorie goal to maintenance, and try to make sure I keep a deficit every day by either eating less or exercising. I'm feeling less pressure, more food, and less STRESS.
I've been doing lots of biking, and a little bit of running.
I may move forward into a more aggressive approach when I'm ready, but maybe not. This seems to be pretty low key and something I can live with on a regular basis.
I feel in control.
My goal for the next few days is to sit down and make a goal countdown. In hindsight I realized that I started my spiral out of control when I no longer had small goals. So my first goal is my HALF MARATHON which is 8.5 weeks away. I haven't even registered for it yet. So I should do that, and book a hotel.
Finally, I think I could be really back in the game and ready to win this. Whether its at a slow pace or a faster one, I will get there.
