I also run, because I really love eating.
I eat when I’m happy, when I’m angry, I eat when I’m sad, when I’m tired, I ate when I’m running, when I’m bored and when I’m having a great time with friends.
I run a lot.
There is always a “but” isn’t there?
It’s just not true that you can out run a bad diet. Which makes me sad.
I should go eat something…
I’ve been helping a friend remember to update her food journal each day. She’s working hard to exercise, eat healthfully and live life to its fullest.
This week I decided I should walk the walk.
I’ve been talking about lowering my body fat percentage for a while now. Last year I even got a nutrition plan from High 5 Nutrition in order to increase the nutritional density of the food I eat, meet my Iron needs as a female runner (running while anemic is possibly the worst feeling EVER) and properly fuel my training goals.
Writing down how horribly I eat sucks.
It also makes me sad to have to watch how many delicious grams of carbohydrates go into my mouth in a day and know that if I’m eating better I wouldn’t eat so many. But I still want too.
My goal is to eat natural foods and to stay within the range of 150-160 grams of carbs a day.
Yesterday I ate 325 grams. Today I ate a lot more than that…because I wanted to. And because I ate cookies for breakfast so I kind of submarined myself before it was even 9am.
Why do are all the tasty foods so bad for me?
Don’t get me wrong, I really like fruits and vegetables too. I make a mean salad full of delicious flavors. I just don’t want to eat salads every day.
