...and hopefully some fat too!
+ It's been one day and the turnaround is remarkable. With my digestion, anyways.
- I'm still tired and hungry nonstop, having trouble just "getting on to life."
- too much fruit and beans vs. meat protein, too little fat
*hopefully keeping up with appetite so I can get on and do something besides wonder what I can eat next?
~1/2c frozen blueberries with 1/2c lactaid cottage cheese
herbal tea with stevia
satisfied, sleepy, and ready for even better doing and feeling tomorrow!
I would definitely say MORE meat to get more calories in. I usually cook a batch of chicken or turkey and keep it in the fridge to eat as a snack or to add to my salad. Just having it handy makes it easier to incorporate into my day.
What marathon are you training for??
I am doing Columbus this October.
Yeah meat definitely needs to come into the picture more with me! I'm so into quick foods that unless I have packages of lunch meat [which Im not eating now] on hand I don't get it regularly. I'll make extra next time to keep it on hand!
I'm training for Detroit in October. Feeling better in some ways, but overall lacking in energy and my pace is much slower. I hope it's just a matter of adjusting...
