Last Thursday it was 178.5. You do the math.
And, um, while you’re at it, tell me how it happened so I can do it again this week.
This is the first time in, oh, three years, probably, that I’ve even considered the validity of the “starvation mode” theory. I typically eat about 1200 calories/day and lose zilch. (My current BMR is 1457.) I didn’t even pretend to count what I was eating last weekend and I see a new number. I can tell you for sure that I wasn’t starving, though. Heh.
I’m not holding my breath that this is a new trend, of course. It’s a fluke! An aberration! It won’t last!
(I hope those theories about negative self-talk are wrong.)
Moving on … Jonathan had a great post a couple days ago. I’m still catching up on blog-reading and I’m so glad I didn’t miss this one. The idea of maintaining one’s weight, instead of one’s weight loss, puts a subtle but important shift of focus on this project for me.
Finally, I wandered over to MapMyRun the other day. My internet connection being the slow, dial-up model, I don’t go there very often. But I wanted to check the elevation of the Richmond Half and while I was there I decided to check the elevation of my usual route. Wow. I feel like I’m training at high altitude. Every 100 feet. Heh.
