I struggle with this concept more than I should. If I burn 3,000 calories, why can’t I consume 3,000 calories throughout the rest of the day? I gained weight while training for the WDW Marathon, and I have not lost any of it since the event in January either. In fact, I have gained some more weight since then despite running in as many have marathons in 2014 as the rest of my life combined! Why? I have not focused on my diet like I should. There have been too many trips to Muddy’s for cupcakes and a reemergence of fast food into my diet. I have always struggled with keeping a good balance in my diet. If I log the miles, I should see the results. Or at least that is what my food obsessed brain thinks. I need to focus a little stronger on this idea moving forward.
