I'm not surprised, I pretty much cleaned up the Easter candy. This week I'll really focus on getting a -2 to compensate. The weather is getting warmer and nicer, and I've found that as much as strength training helps get cuts and muscle, running is what really drops the weight for me.
I need to work on this tendency I have to pig out at holidays. I always am in the mindset of 'I'm on vacation' so I just eat and eat and eat all day long. I know most people gain at the holidays, but I seem to gain, and then take the time before the next holiday to get that weight off, and it's just this awful cycle from Thanksgiving to my birthday (May 14). My real losses come in the summer -which is good because that's where we're headed! I'm sure when I get to my maintenance weight it won't be as bad, but right now it's just like, ugh, can I please get to the 160's!?
Anyway...April's 5K is tomorrow! It's the YMCA Spring Run, and my Dad is here to run with me! Yesterday we took a run on the trail together, and he helped me with my form (I cross my arms when I run rather than hold them straight). He said that will help propel me forward, like a train...It's funny b/c when he runs, I think he looks kind of funny. Oh well, if it makes me faster... He also thinks I'll PR tomorrow, but this course is pretty hilly, so I'm not so sure.
I'm thinking that since I'm only doing the 5k at 8am, while dad does the 10k at 9am, I'll run a few laps around the park, which is 1 mile, so I get in some more mileage.
How did everyone else do with their weigh-in? Hope you were able to resist the Easter baskets better than me!
