DietBet week 1 done

We are now one week into the RWRM DietBet.  I was quite surprised by how motivated (ie. PANICKY) doing this online made me.  I thought I had been trying to lose weight all year but apparently not.  The cheating stopped right away and I didn't spend 3 days eating rubbish through the weekend (yep, I start on Friday) as has been the norm for a while.  Result - 3lbs loss.  I am at 130 for the first time in 2013.  Kev has also lost 2lbs due to healthier cooking and no junk food in the house.  I hadn't realized how focused on food our weekends were, eating out is a tough habit to break.

I only ran once last week as I had been giving my calf some rest time.  It seemed to work as I had no trouble during the 9.5k.  My knee/IT band did not cooperate, it was painful at about 0.5k and got worse until the end.  I'm getting really frustrated with it as I have a lot of plans this year.  I roll it every day and stretch as much as possible during the work day.  My chiropractor is helping by realigning it regularly.  Sigh.  I am going to try some of this stuff in the coming week:

Marathon training starts in mid May - right after the DietBet ends (coincidentally).  Seriously, 2 years ago this week I ran my first 5k and now I'm going to run 26.2 miles?
