join the 100 mile fitness challenge? (this is a link - really!)
This is such a wonderful help to me. Winter is a difficult time to exercise, but this challenge is inspiring me to JUST DO IT. I have added my own personal challenge; limiting my calorie intake to 15,400 per week. It sounds like a lot, doesn't it? But I have a little problem. It's called four o'clock. Every day at four o'clock I am hungry. Very hungry. When I'm being good I have a tasty handful of nice crunchy carrots. So delicious, and so healthy and low in calories.
But sometimes I forget about carrots for a little while. Then I accidentally eat a great big peanut butter cookie, or a handful of plum sweets , (check these out!) or some yummy fig newtons and chocolate squares. Oops.
I put in 25 miles this week, and consumed 15,855 calories, 455 more than my limit. Better than last week when I covered 24 miles and had 17,135 calories. In my defense, we had a birthday in our family that first week. Mmmm. Carrot cake.
We also have a birthday next week and the week after that. The gentlemen in our family all have January birthdays!
