The scale is kinder and I'm feeling strong! (but tired...)

WOOT! I finally seem to have gotten rid of that pesky 5 lbs of holiday weight gain. I'm back to where I want to be on the scale, so now I just have to work to stay here.
Lately, though, I have been ravenous. I think it is the increased mileage I am running. My body needs more fuel. I'm trying to make sure the fuel that is in my kitchen is healthy food, so that I don't grab junk just because it is in sight. It's still the same old battle.
This morning my legs were really tired--I had to work to get 4 miles in, and they were pretty slow miles. However, since my four miles today brings my total mileage since Sunday to almost 22 miles, plus a day of cross-training on the elliptical, I guess the tired legs have an explanation. Tomorrow might need to be a rest day.
