Report The Panda Chronicles in Accountability Check-in Posted December 3, 2015 I already run with a string pulling me up, tie Reef Knots, and I don't think any of my shoes have the extra holes. I think my blisters form only when I wear the cotton socks, so I need to throw them away (even though I hate throwing away "perfectly good socks"). Also, regarding the weight loss, it seems that my scale is inaccurate. I've been eating 1000 calorie deficits, but I gained the 4 pounds back. I glanced at the scale in disbelief this morning and weighed myself 4 times, each time getting a different weight (up to a 4 lb difference). So, this not knowing whether I'm burning fat and keeping muscle is very upsetting. I feel fresher on runs that have had a rest day, but I'm paranoid that my waistline is expanding (whether due to sodium or monthly fluctuations, I don't know). I really wish I could devote more time to each run, but unless I want to wake up at 5 AM or run at night, I'm not sure it's feasible. Right now, I'm just kinda bummed out about getting in shape.
