I had half of this Cliff Bar around 2:45pm this afternoon. I don’t think I was hungry yet, but I had been looking forward to it all day.
I also had way too many grapes a half an hour later. You know you’ve eaten a lot of fruit when you are super full from it all.
A little later I stole a handful of these quasi-diet chips from Terence (since it reads the blog, now he knows & now it’s not stealing). Hi Terence thanks.
When I got home my mom was eating hummus & crackers and I grabbed a handful. There are so many time during the day when I grab a handful of crackers or cereal or something else that’s around. My dailies are not a full picture of what I eat because of this. I probably eat hundreds of extra calories through out the day this way, little bites here and there really add up! My name is Monica and I am a compulsive snacker. Another way I know this is, after not eating sweets for something like 2 weeks now I have not lost an ounce! I must be substituting random snacks in place of my usual sweets. So, in an effort to be more honest with myself and the blog I am only going to eat what is documented here for the next 60 days. This time frame will get me through the next 54 days of marathon training & a week of recovery.
This way you can see how I really fuel & refuel to recover. Well, if I am really trying to lead by example I need to be fully open and honest with what I eat. Also, I get a lot of emails about what to eat while training for a half marathon & since I am currently training I can just show you all what exactly I eat.
I took a de-stress walk when I got home with the perros – Roxy & Bailey. Dinner was a pita pizza with cheese and seitan. Why is pizza so amazing? I love it.
I had to have dessert since it was just one of “those” days. I had a cup of cereal
and these rice cracker things my mother bought from Costco, that were surprisingly good.
Well, see you all tomorrow when I begin to show you every single little crumb that I consume. I guess this means no drinking juice straight from the carton in front of the fridge…damn.
