Fast forward two months and 8 pounds heavier. I am not running nearly as many miles I used to. And I have no event to work for. Add to that stress. My diet has been lost. I've been eating pizza because its easy. Extra bowls of cereal after eating a big dinner. Stress eating is nothing new to me. I discovered that frightening truth about myself on my journey. I just got off the scale 173.4. Something needs to be done before it gets worse. Holidays are right around the corner too, a usually difficult dieting time of year. My summer running weight is around 165, +- 2 pounds.
The way I see it I can either run more miles or face the issue. If you have any ideas let me know. I plan on eating lots of apples. I heard an idea to melt dark chocolate in peanut butter and grab only a spoonful when faced with a craving.
Until I can figure a way to cut sugar from my diet and fight cravings I will be cranky and irritable.
