Ok, so I'm going to start journaling my eating and activities. Mainly to help keep me on track food-wise (feel free to heckle remorselessly if I stray without good reason!), but also to maybe help others out just by being able to see one person's approach.
So, for today (Sat, June 27):
B - 4 eggs, scrambled, 1-1.5 cups strawberries and blueberries, yerba mate (a kind of tea from South America).
L - Large salad (lots of lettuce, cucumber, a carrot, half an avocado, few cherry tomatoes, a few dried currents), topped with a can of tuna, and as a dressing, olive oil and oregano.
S -Handful of almonds, cup of coffee with a tiny splash of milk and a wee bit of sugar, and a small piece of dark chocolate (I'm currently trying to eliminate coffee altogether - I'm down to once a day now - once I eliminate it, I won't have any more use for dairy or sugar).
D - Chicken breast wrapped in bacon, brussels sprouts (about 14 I think), small salad with olive oil and balsamic.
S - 1-1.5 cups strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. About 10 almonds.
Between breakfast and lunch I went to a local park and did some bare-foot trail running. About 3 miles worth of sprinting, jogging and walking. I've just started doing a lot more bare-foot and I'm loving it. This was the first time doing the whole 3 mile loop bare-foot. Previously I'd start out w/ shoes, then take them off about half-way through. My feet are certainly getting stronger and tougher. Then, to wash all the mud off I waded along the creek there at the park. Lots of small and medium stones gave my foot muscles a workout - they're still sore.
