I'm back after falling off the face of the earth

I needed time away from computers and Internet for awhile. And things have been crazy, LET ME TELL YOU. My parents are empty-nesters; I moved my apartment to a storage unit, went home for a week, moved my storage unit into a shared dorm room, got MORE stuff that needed to fit in my dorm room in an organized way, recruited for Army ROTC during orientation week, and classes start on Monday. Whew....

But I'm ready to start keeping a detailed record of my food consumption and exercising. I've been doing something active every single day outside of the days that I make a point to run and lift. But once school starts, things will be more organized and structured.

So, I've moved up to running twice a day. My wind is pretty much non existent on runs longer than 3 miles. and my speed is most definitely non existent. I'm biking more to keep my knees good. Rucking (running with 25+ lbs on my back in my combat boots and uniform) starts soon too. Awesome...

My appetite is pretty small. I'm good about portions and not eating when I'm not hungry. Yay.

I'll be biking for a couple days as opposed to running due to a ripped blister on the ball of my foot...a VERY deep blister. Like a whole callous got ripped most of the way off.

I'm getting back to daily posting.

Finally updating again...ahem

So, yeah. I was too tired at night to summarize my day so I just went straight to bed. It was a pretty busy week.

Good news is , I've been exercising according to plan. Bad news, not eating like I said I would. Not terrible, but not great. But no weight gain. Still 168.5 lbs.

Just got cookies in the mail from one of the sweet old lady's at church back home. I suspect Dad of sabotage.

Long run and homework are all that's on the agenda for today. Bowl of cereal for breakfast/lunch. I finally caught up on my sleep.

Day 15 :-/

Sooo, this weekend was hectic. I was home all weekend for the funeral, spent lots of time in the car, and uh, kinda blew whatever diet thing I was on off.

But I'm back on track now. Yesterday I was 170.0 lbs after I lifted, swam, and went for an hour walk. It wasn't as much cardio as I wanted, but I'm all set for a long run today.

I ate poptarts for breakfast as i walked to campus, ate lunch at 2:00pm of a grilled ham and cheese, a single serving of ice cream, and some chocolate milk. Then I snacked on grapes, before I went out to eat with some friends that were up for the weekend. It was a bacon cheeseburger with home made chips. I couldn't finish it all. But today is going to be one of those hot days where I won't want to eat. Pop-tarts for breakfast again, but I'm thinking a simple cold sandwich for lunch.

Fingers crossed that today's weigh in will be more hopeful than yesterdays.
