Obviously I have been neglectful of not only this blog but of my desires and goals (typical for me). So here I am starting over AGAIN! I'm not sure what the plan is this time but I know I need to do some sort of tracking. I resist counting calories (as I have done for the past 4 decades) because I have picked up the habit of eating all the calories I burn by running (plus some) because in my mind it's "OK". Ha! The games I play with myself!
So . . . here was breakfast
|Pills: Vitamin, fish oil, low dose Premarin (62 mg.) and Aciphex (for acid reflux)|
And since it's Monday it's my long run day as well. I carry a little water (I stop to refill at water fountains), a rootbeer barrell and a 100 calorie packet of Lifesavers Gummies to give me a much needed carb boost mid-run. Here are my tools.
|The sunglasses will ride on my visor until about the last half hour of the run. It's pitch black outside when we start.|
Here I am after I finished my run - 13 miles completed! We're parked in the parking lot behind me, across the field.
After I get home I have my much deserved (or at least anticipated) coffee and peach scones (made with yogurt instead of cream).
Then I took a nap. Unfortunately, today I couldn't shut my mind off so I never fell asleep but it was good rest anyway. I got up, went outside and picked fresh tomatoes & cucumbers to prepare lunch.
|Salad made with Lite Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing. Sandwich is a slice of Cheddar Jack cheese with 40 calories of chunky guacamole, and a teaspoon of red pepper humus on New York Rye bread.|
The bad part of running 13 miles is that it awakens my appetite. Of course MY appetite is always awake! But at least I made a low calorie choice.
Supper was a veggie burger with cantaloupe and cottage cheese.
And this finishes off the eating day.
