This is my awesome spin instructor (hi Jodie!!) , in case you think maybe I was just taking it easy- do you think she lets anyone take it easy?
I also am getting back on the good eating saddle. My break from working out unfortunately coincided with a break in eating well. I need to drop this extra weight in order to stop the injury cycle. I know it's the extra weight I carry (and being in my 5th decade) that does it.
I had a little epiphany yesterday about my eating. I've been doing the frequent small meal thing, however it just lead to eating all the time! I was reading my Runner's World magazine in carpool lane and in an article about losing weight it said "STOP GRAZING". Eat 3 meals a day. Now I KNOW the frequent small meals works for some, but for me, it was like I never knew when to stop. So today I am going to just do 3 meals, nothing between except water and tea. I stocked up at Publix on healthy stuff and just finished lunch and am STUFFED, but it was healthy and likely under 400 calories.
A flatout wrap with roasted turkey, baby organic spinach and broccoli slaw inside. Carrots, sugar snaps and grape tomatoes on the side. YUM! The inside looks like this- I tossed the spinach and slaw in a splash of lite greek dressing.
I think with the structure of 3 meals I will be able to control calories and portions much better.
It's a very gray rainy day today- Matthew's baseball practice has already been canceled. Will be strange not being out all evening! Have to take Thomas in for some bloodwork (from his yearly physical yesterday- thyroid and CBC) after school. Should be loads of fun, every year he gets stronger and more people need to hold him down, poor kid!
Hope everyone is having a great day! Hope the rain stops by morning, I have a 5am run planned since I have a busy day.
TWO MORE DAYS!!! Goooooooooooooo Phils!!
