Day one of carb deplete is done. I feel okay. I really wanted a roll at dinner especially cause they were a little burned on the bottom, just like I like. I made a new deal with myself. If I eat clean all week, run 4 times, and lift weights then I will pay myself $50. So now when I feel like eating something I just have to ask myself if it is worth $50. I have been trying to track my calories eaten and burned to try to find some rhyme or reason for why I have gained or lost for the week. I was doing good last week and was down a few pounds. Today after CH and H days I had gained even though I hadn't gone over on calories. Don't understand it. I am hoping after depleting I will be down quite a bit.

My knee was still really sore and swollen after last weeks miles. I know it was only 9 but it has only been 7 weeks since my surgery. I decided to rest, ice, and elevate tonight and move tomorrow's rest day to today. Easy enough to make the trade. It will be cold in the morning and windy so I will probably wait to run until after work. Cold this morning meant 8 degrees when you take the wind chill into consideration.

I am glad that others have started back on the crackin' so I won't be alone. Remember it's a lifestyle not a diet.

Great start Jill!
I'm glad my first day is over too. I just need to take it day by day until I don't even have to think about it anymore. I'm looking fwd to feeling better and slimmer which I know I'll hit in a few weeks.
Good incentive--the $50! Save up lots of money, come to Houston and we'll all go shopping! :)

Good job. After a CH and H day, its usually water gain clinging to the carbs you had those days, so that'll come off fast this week.

I took yesterday off too. I just can't get the energy to go run. Plus it was raining so I had that as an excuse too.

I have clothes in my car so hopefully I can run this afternoon.
