550 miles (will) = 55,000 calories

And yet...I'm the SAME weight as ever (well, minus 3 lbs). The good news is, my body fat has dropped by a "WHOPPING" 4%. You heard me. I'm not doing this for weight loss, but one would THINK I would be at my goal by now.

Perhaps it's those chocolate chip cookies, or the lattes.... or the pizza... or the carbo-loading. I actually ate a piece of carrot cake today. I'm not a fan of cake, but carrot cake? Forget about it.

Even still, TWO days in a row, my stomach has been growling VERY LOUDLY during 3rd and 4th hours WHILE I am teaching. I ran 17 miles on Sunday, and my metabolism is RAGING.

Still not an athlete. Still don't know why I do this. Still love it.

I hear you! I put some jeans on the other night for the first time in a long time and they felt even tighter in my quad, thigh area. Jeff assures me it is because I have more muscle, but I am not sure about that.
