Health update

The McDougall diet plan I (re-)started last Tuesday evening is going very well. I'm eating lots of vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains, tubers, etc., and not feeling hungry or deprived. I've lost a couple of pounds, but those are likely water weight given the time of the month.

My mood and energy level are still not great, but I'm hopeful that they will improve over time. I skipped one of my planned runs last week, but took brisk 45-60 min walks on Saturday and today and plan to run this Wednesday (6 miles), Friday (6 miles), and Sunday (5K race), with additional walking on Tuesday and Thursday. Also did some crunches today for the first time in quite awhile.
