Wow. It’s been a while. Shame on me!
Still going strong. I’m on a long path. It’s taken me a while to be able to admit that and I *think* I’m OK with it… I don’t have much of a choice. I can do things the quick and unhealthy way, or I can do them my way. My long path is a one way street with no off ramps. So here I am. 🙂
Tomorrow, my friends over at Scootadoot.com will be publishing a guest blog post that I wrote on Meal Prepping. EEK. Somehow, somewhere, this became my thing. I am not a nutritionist, so I hope people keep that in mind. I’m also not a writer, so hopefully there aren’t too many grammatical errors and such.
I do hope people find it easy to read though and that when they’re finished, they want to go out and do it themselves. I’ve said it a million times, I’ll say it a million times more. It’s much easier than it looks! Here’s this week’s… Yum!
Speaking of food… My thoughts about nutrition are changing. Or maybe it’s more accurate to say they’re evolving. There is so much information out there and it’s all so overwhelming! I used to think I had to eat so “clean” to make a difference in my body comp. I’ve always paid close attention to my protein and carbs. I’ve kept an eye on my calories and tried to keep my fat on the lower end. I’ve stayed away from certain foods, I’ve incorporated “super foods” into our diet. For the most part, I like the way we eat. Real food. (not relying on shakes and protein bars – although I LOVE the Quest bars.. I won’t lie…) But, I still want to have a bowl of ice cream every now and then. (There’s always room for ice cream…. )
My main goal is to get my body fat % down without compromising the baby muscles that I’ve been building. With that said, it’s been pretty hard for me to figure out what my numbers should look like. I follow several people on Instagram for motivation and many of them live a “flexible dieting” lifestyle and really like the idea behind it. One account I follow in particular led me to a woman named Krissy Mae Cagney. She wrote a book that I’ve found to be the most helpful so far called: flex*i*ble dieting which can be found here: flex*I*ble dieting
I love that she’s an actual nutritionist and her “no BS” approach. I love the way she explains how to figure out macro’s. I love her story. She’s got me fired up and I’m really excited to get going on this. I am making a plan. Watch out!
Other than that, we’ve ran a few times since I last posted. (Hover over the Running tab to see the dates) I am scheduled for 4 more half marathons this year still, and the 3-Day. Not sure if I’ll sign up for more than that. Maybe a 10K or something. That actually sounds refreshing…..
Pretty sure there are 24 medals here. I think I need a new display rack. O___o
How are you? 🙂
