Another Run, another weigh in.

Last night I read Mike's blog up in Wisconsin and how he was underfueled for a 10k and bonked. Then I ran and felt undefueled right from the get go. I toughed it out and got in 5.3 miles before I needed a bathroom break. The middle of the run was actually fine.

I weighed in this morning at 223.5. I've been there for a week now. After running 23 miles last week, I was hoping to lose a bit. I need to start watching my caloire intake. I now have a daily sheet I am going to fill out and try to minimize the calories in.

Tonight is "The Biggest Loser" on NBC. I believe they are going to disband the teams and do something different. Should be interesting.

Check out this bush. I guess when bushes have to pee, they have to pee. Or maybe it's a marathoner on the other side.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the fires in southern California. Irene, in San Diego says she's safe. But, she's too close for comfort. The ironic thing is that in Arizona we've been blessed with a very mild fire season. I can't think of a single forest fire this year here. I'm sure a lot of our fire fighters are helping our neighbors.

Holding 223 for a week is not a bad thing, you will probably plummet in a day or two! Good work!

Try to change up your workout routine and had some challenge like weights or increasing your speedwork.

I agree that a change might be the trick....I wish I could figure out the trick though too....I've been bouncing between 215 and 227 all year...last year I lost 35 pounds before my serious running started in January of this year...but I need to lose another 40...what could I do with my time with that baggage gone?

So have you gone out to the Marathon Maniac's website yet?

Back when I actually WAS in weight loss mode, I learned that just a little tweaking in your diet can help get you UNstuck from the scale.

Maybe try a little more protein? That always seems to jump start my system a bit.

Don't talk to me about scales right now. :>P I need to restart mine as well.

223.5 and holding is better than a 17 pound gain.
