I had to come to some "truths" with myself.
I need eat more food because only 2,000 calories a day is not enough for the endurance, mileage, and time I put into my daily workouts.
I've been physically drained the past 2 days after my 12.2 mile run because I didn't eat enough food to reward my body. I ate my usual meals = 2,000 when I burned almost 1,400. Big mistake.
I need to focus on larger more complete meals. Protein, fat, and a carb per meal.
I need to eat like an athlete if I am going to train like an athlete.
I want to stop weighing myself every stinking morning. It's driving me mad. I am trying to cut back to every other day, or a few times a week.
I need to just breath and trust my body.
So today I start the challenge. Ditch "MyFitnessPal" for a few days, ditch the scale, fuel my body, enjoy my workouts, enjoy my progress, and love myself.
Off to make breakfast #2 before I head out the door for work. I'm thinking eggs & cheese sound divine.
Do you eat intuitively?
Do you track your food?
Do you weigh yourself every day?
How have these habits impacted you?
