Phase 2, Day 2

I started Phase 2 (again) yesterday and it is going great. I am loving the cereal for breakfast and fruit in the afternoon. My carb-fat-protein ratios are balancing out much more nicely now. I'm still a little high on fat and low on carbs, but once I add another grain and fruit next week, it will be close to perfect. I'm determined not to weigh myself until next Monday because fluctuations are so normal in the beginning of Phase 2. Plus, a certain monthly visitor is due to arrive any day now and I am definitely bloated. Fun! Hopefully I can resist the chocolate cravings until Mark returns from England with some delectable English chocolate on Tuesday.

I have started a 10K training program from sparkpeople.com: Spark Your Way to a 10K. Since I can already run 5K, I skipped the Walking & Jogging Program and went staright to the Jogging Program. It is a 12 week program, but I should be running 10K by the 8th week and running 10K more than once a week by the 10th week. Last night's assignment was to run 2 miles, which is less than I usually run so it was a breeze. (I find it kind of odd that the overall goal is metric, but the assignments each day are imperial, but whatev!)

And that's about it for today. We are eating at Mom and Dad's tonight, so hopefully it will be P2-friendly!
