No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
This week, I'm making it a priority to meal plan and take time out to prep foods, prepare meals, and track. I'm starting to get the exercise thing down, but that meant I went slack on the food front. It's all about balancing everything. Problem is, sometimes it all is balanced on the head of a pin!
I'm going to start following the Cool Running Beginner 5k training program, which is different from the C25k program. I guess you'd say it's the next step up. It means I need to run 4 weeks straight of the following: M off; T, W, Th Run 3 miles; F off; Saturday Run 3 miles; Sunday Run 4 miles. Once I do that, I will start the official training. I'm used to running every other day, so this will be a step up for me. Nervous but excited about it. I realized that my Nike+ was not actually calibrated yet, so when I thought I was running 3 miles in training, I was actually running closer to 2.5 miles.
Here's today's meal:
B: 2 cups coffee w/ 1tbsp Smore's creamer (not very good, btw); 1 Nature's Path Chocococonut granola bar
L: Wholly Guacamole 100 calorie pack with 15 tortilla chips; 1 mini corn on the cob
Snack: 1 tbsp Monster munch (I made it for church group last night and have quite a bit left over: Made from air-popped popcorn, Reese's Pieces, Candy Corn, Peanuts, and White Almond Bark)
D: Homemade chicken and dumplings (using 2 chicken breasts, 3 c. fat-free chicken broth, 2 tbsp flour and dumplings made from flour, baking soda, salt, olive oil, and milk)
Dessert: Frozen Raspberries pureed into a smoothie-like consistency (An idea since I need something else with dinner)
