High: The marathon. Can’t wait to fill you in!
Low: Trying to eat so many carbs. Don’t get me wrong, carb loading is fun–I love enjoying pasta and cookies all week. But trying to hit the carb goals I’d set for Thursday and Friday was just too much. I felt uncomfortably full on Thursday night and on Friday decided to stop tracking and just eat what felt right.
I think I still ate enough carbs (pancakes for breakfast, rice for lunch, pasta for dinner), but without feeling pressured to eat too much just to hit an arbitrary number.
