The knee’s still hurting meaning I won’t be running tonight, but my plan to taper out of my diet is going well.
For the past three days I’ve been gradually eating more and more, trying to hit the target ShapeUp Club recommends to lose 1.3 kilograms per week. My weight started going up in small amounts (~100 grams each day), but it started heading back down last night. Hopefully this means my metabolism is relaxing, letting me burn my energy stores more easily, and I’ll be able to lose the remaining two or three kilograms quickly and easily when my knee comes good.
But even better than that, I’m allowing myself little treats here and there which is doing wonders for my mental health—yesterday I had a beer in the middle of the week and didn’t feel the slightest bit guilty!
