Weighing In Wednesday

Happy hump day y’all. Every Wednesday picture the camel from the Geico commercial yelling “Hump Day!” either you hate it or you love it and I love it. I'm not the only one :)
     

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I have been really sticking to my diet this past week. I think it was in part to having healthy options readily available in my fridge and also to the Pact I took to track my food. I blogged about the Pact app a few weeks ago and then decided to give it a try for myself. You create the goal of how many days you want to track your meals on My Fitness Pal. If you skip a day there is a $5 penalty and if you meet your goal there is a small reward.  I realize that tracking calories is not for everyone and that’s perfectly okay. For me, tracking my meals help me realize when I am eating too much or too little. I have found that when I am eating too few calories that I will indulge and overcompensate with unhealthy choices.

I have been watching my carbohydrate intake this week along with my calories. A low carb diet has been found to force your body to use your fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates.  I also think that it is important to switch up your diet every once in a while to avoid boredom. The majority of my diet this week has been protein and vegetables. Honestly, I have not been hungry thanks to all the protein I have been eating. The main thing I am missing is being able to enjoy more than one piece of fruit.  I will eat higher carbs the night before a long run to avoid bonking out due to lack of energy.  My weight this morning was 124 which makes for another two pounds down!

Do you enjoy trying new diets?
