I have lost so much weight in 2 days that it may be hard to just break even today, much less lose more weight. This pace never holds for very long. While I have broken even or lost some weight more than 10 days in a row, it’s not like the pace of the past 2 days. I have lost 1.6 kg, which is approaching 3 1/2 pounds.
So from a start of 77.6, it was not surprising to be at 78.8 (1.2 over) with a couple of snacks left to go. And I am also still thirsty. In this case, I am not going to feel bad because there has to be an opposite reaction at some point. It would still be nice to break even, though. I am still trying to do that.
To be honest, I did eat a little too much today, including a can of apple cider. While it wasn’t what I would call a full or even partial cheat day, several snacks were a little too big. I know I can’t be 100% perfect with this diet, though. So I am happy as long as I can follow it properly most of the time.
After the final snack, including the cider, I came in at 1.8 kg over (77.6 to 79.4). That is way too much, but I will stay positive by running in the morning and then seeing my net weight loss for the past 3 days. That will blunt the downer of today’s result, which is not likely to be very good at this point. I might even gain weight.
Things turned a little better when I woke up and had lost about 1 kg. My weight was at about 78.4 at that time. If I have a good exercise result, I can actually lose weight again for the 3rd day in a row.
I ran a full 90 minutes again, and it was faster than yesterday. I got lost taking a new route and increased the pace some to try to find my way and get back home on time. Luckily, I found my way back in this new town and actually got back home and ran around an extra 7 minutes to complete the session.
Evan with checking the whole minute instead of 15 seconds and multiplying by 4, my heart rate was at 122, whereas it was 108 yesterday. That 108 was on the low end for me, but I still managed to lose about 1 kg.
Ironically, the amount lost during a workout is sometimes less even when my heart rate is higher. However, the result was good today. I lost about 1.1 kg, getting down to 77.3.
After finishing in the bathroom, I was at 77.2 and confirmed a daily weight loss of .4 kg. That makes 3 days in a row of weight loss, and I have shed 2.0 kg in those 3 days. That is a sizable 4 1/2 pounds in only 3 days. Now, this is some serious recovery. Flying high now.
Well, this streak would not be able to maintain itself for too much longer, but it doesn’t really matter because I will be running again tomorrow and then not running again until next week. So that will halt the streak, anyway. So the immediate goal is to have one more good day tomorrow and try to break even until next week.
