Day 10- Started waking up at 5 and finally got out of bed at 630 feeling anxious. In my dream, my wedding was like 6 weeks away and I still had the same 5 lbs to lose. It felt hopeless at that point. That said, I weighed myself this AM and the scale said 148. Funny how I have calculated that I've lost exactly 1 lb since last Friday and sure enough the scale reflects it - Slow and steady...
Feeling a little less anxious than I was before my quiet journal/bible time and it's important for me to remember that feelings are fleeting. I feel anxious now, I felt great yesterday, anxious last night and tomorrow I will feel? Hopefully elated/joyous at trying on wedding dresses but we'll see
The Same 7 - The day of long runs have always been hard for me - I go into it thinking "I've run 12 or 20 or whatever so I have plenty of calories" and then forget almost how very very easy it is to exceed the calories I've burned - Especially since I treat it like a party sometimes and alcohol can be involved. We have a brunch buffet planned with friends after the race, but my goal is to focus on satisfaction from food, but more importantly the conversation of great friends. I'm not going for deficit on Sunday and just plan to eat back my burn.
Hope everyone has a GREAT day.
