I’m just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.

Emily in The Devil Wears Prada

So, I know I haven’t updated you on my Thinner Thursdays in a while. And I’m sorry for that, truly. But, honestly my weight hasn’t budged in the last 6 weeks so I just couldn’t sit myself down to write anything.

But, this week, I am down a half a pound and it is 100% due to a virus that hit me hard on Saturday night. It wasn’t until Wednesday that I really had any appetite again. 

And while I’m still not feeling 100% (and haven’t done a 10 miler training run since last week Wednesday) I’m actually hoping that my stomach has shrunk a bit over the last 5 days. I know that I probably eat anywhere from 300-500 extra calories a day and I want to get into a better eating routine.

My plan for the rest of my training period (and afterwards since it will be a habit) is to have only 2 servings of bread a day. This includes my english muffin at breakfast, and then any bread or crust or noodle in a later meal. Rice will probably count too - do you consider rice a bread/carb?

I’ve also given up cookies/cupcakes/cakes/brownies/muffins for my training period. The only time I’ve slipped is when I was in virus recovery and nibbled on a Milano cookie (or three over the course of two days).

Luckily, at Go Blog Social this past weekend I met a few fantastic food bloggers that are going to really help me freshen up my recipe routine. The first is Mary of The Kitchen Paper and the second is Lindsay of The Live-In Kitchen. Plus there are a slew of Chicago food bloggers that serve up awesome stuff every day. 

I am getting really excited for eating healthy, whole and delicious new meals!
