I guess I'm just in awe of my own eating habits.
|The other ladies will remain anonymous, but this is simply a reflection of how|
I eat (and look) on the weekends. This was back in 2009.
I eat about 5-6 meals a day, keeping Sunday - Friday evening pretty healthy (I keep a 1.5 "cheat day"...hah). I start every day with breakfast. It's my favorite meal of the day. Probably since it has the most carbs in it [ Lindsey + Carbs = <3 ]. If I'm starved before noon, I usually have a light snack to hold me over. Then there's lunch, an afternoon snack, dinner, and a bedtime snack. Roughly, I probably take in anywhere from 1,800 to 2,300 a day. Maybe it's too much, maybe it's not enough. Whatever the case, I'm maintaining my weight and I'm a happy gal! I eat as my body tells me and it has worked in my favor for some time now.
But enough about food (it's making me hungry), I am happy I made it to my rest days. This week of running was not my favorite. I completed everything I wanted to, but not how I would have liked to. The days I took off last week from pain and soreness really threw me off my a-game. Then, changing my outdoor surroundings to one spot on a treadmill was not something I'm particularly used to or fond of. Hopefully, next week will seem relatively normal. I am thinking of nothing but my marathon in March. At this point, I'm still thinking I'm on schedule.
PS, I THINK I'M LOSING MY FIRST TOENAIL! It's a big day! Haha!
How many meals do you eat a day?
Do you count your calories?
Does taking days off from running mess up your flow? Does changing your scenery?
