good morning

I ran this morning, did the usual 3.3 miles. Ok run. I think my muscles are still fatigued from my late work out last night. I'm incredibly hungry. I ate a banana but I think I need to eat more. I'm also very confused by my metabolism, I really have no gauge for how many calories a day my body actually burns. Fit day tells me one number and I've seen my number on other calculators but I never believe them. I feel like I've been eating a lot less in calories than what these calculators tell me. For a long time. So I think my metabolism is pretty slow.. but hey that's okay. A slow metabolism = longer life span. Its proven! I just have to eat for my metabolism I guess, not some calculated average based on the masses...
Caloric restriction optimum nutrition anyone?

Wow you are going to do awesome in this 5K. I can barely run a mile let alone 3. For me I find the more I look at the scale the more I feel guilty about it. I kind of this part of it is mental. I thought you looked good and not fat or like you have gained wait, so cheer up. There are things you can do to boost your metabolism. Maybe its slow because of lack or meat and dairy? I have no idea. All I know is green tea helps and I drink about 5 glasses a day.
