Today I officially started my training program for my triathlon. The program is 12 weeks long which means I have 12 weeks to get ready for this crazy thing I have decided to do. I would really like to be no more than 145 for the triathlon as I know I will perform better at that weight. I can really feel the extra weight I gained weighing me down when I do Zumba and other exercises. On the schedule today I was supposed to swim, but when I woke up this morning I knew that there was no way I was going to be able to swim this morning. Last night Chloe didn't fall asleep until 11pm due to a very late nap she took and I had forgotten to take my evening allergy medicine last night and I woke up at 5:00 with a splitting headache and burning eyes from allergies. If I were to swim I would need to put my contacts in and there was no way I was going to be able to wear contacts today. Fortunately the app I have allows you to reschedule your weekly workout, so I moved things around and ended up with a week that looks like this.
I am deleting my fitbit calorie adjustment in MFP because it always throws me off. I am going to measure my workout calorie burn with my HRM and plug that into MFP. I will allow myself to eat all of my exercise calories if I feel I need the food, which I probably will. I have my daily calories set at 1460. Today my total tracked calories was 1606 with 306 remaining that I ended up not using. I ate plenty of cookies last night though when I made peanut butter white chocolate chip cookies. I did manage to stay out of the cookies today.
Well, I made it past day 1.... now I just have to make it past the next 12 weeks.... and then well.... the rest of my life.
