A Little Less OCD

I’ve been doing this ‘training’ thing for a few reasons.  First, I’m going to try mountain bike racing this year – scary, yet freaking fun!  Second, I’m also going to run on a relay team, which will run almost 200 miles in the course of a day and a half.  Again – scary, yet freaking fun!  Third, I’m in the process of losing some extra, unwanted pounds.

During the first few weeks of my training I went total OCD on the weight loss part.  I wore my BodyBugg all the time.  I tracked every-single-thing I ate.  I was obsessed with the ‘numbers’ aspect of it and made a spreadsheet.  I entered in my calories burned and my calories consumed every day.  I posted on Facebook my calorie burn, every day.  And then…I got bored with it all.

I took off the BodyBugg and didn’t track my food at all last week.  I still tracked my walking/running mileage and my biking.  But I really let go of the micro-management of the weight loss part of the journey.  My official weight-in day is today, Monday.  I lost three and a half pounds last week, which is more then I have lost in one week so far!  Yay for stopping the OCD and yay for the weight loss!

  1. Great job Kimberly. It is hard to let go of the details sometimes but amazing what happens when our bodies figure out what to do!
