Starting Weight: 77.6 kg
Ending Weight: 77.2 kg
Result: lost .4 kg
This was a hard makeup day because of the small weight gain yesterday. I am not really upset about that. It was a one-hour run because it was so windy and cold. And there will be plenty of days with slight weight gain even when I run an hour. However, the key today was to lose a good amount of weight because I am just in the beginning stages of a the post-New Year’s recovery period.
To try to get things back in the right direction, I ran for 2 hours. And it was cold and windy again. But today I could not slack off for any reason. So off I went and ran in the cold and windy weather for 2 hours.
I started at 77.6 kg today and ate one smallish meal with no carbs. After a small snack, I then went and exercised. After going to the bathroom, I was down to 76.8 kg at 4:30 in the afternoon. This is a good spot. I still probably need one smallish meal and one snack. And that should set me up for good weight loss by the time of the weigh-in in the morning.
I rose a little more than expected, hitting approximately 78.1 by the time I finished eating for the night. Much of that weight gain, though, was water. Even still, this is a good mark to end for the night because it is only about .5 kg over this morning’s weigh-in, which is the day’s starting weight. So I am bound to lose some weight in this 24-hour cycle unless something strange happens. There are days when I lose only .4 kg or less overnight. But that is way below average.
Well, I had a good drop overnight, losing .9 kg, which is almost 2 pounds. This is a little better than average. And since I ran for 2 hours, that is not a surprise. My recovery period is back on track and is 1.0 kg in 3 days.
There is a little problem I have to deal with. It snowed last night, and the snow stuck. It’s also -6 degrees Celsius, which is 21 degrees Fahrenheit. It would be hard to run in such weather. However, I don’t know that there is a good alternative since I have no gym membership. Let me think about this for a while. Hopefully, the temperature will rise some in a few hours.
