dizilizi Posted February 25, 2014 Share Posted February 25, 2014 So here I am at day 15, I've been so busy,and the kids have had the computer, that I haven't had time to even get on the forums, but I finally made it!! I have felt amazing over the last week and a half. I've felt great eating so differently from my family. No one else chose to embark on this journey with me. Over the past two weeks,I have baked cinnamon rolls for my kids, bought them Valentines candy, and even cup cakes for my oldest and my husband. I woke up yesterday to a pan of brownies the kids had baked after I went to be. The amazing thing about my choice is that I haven't wanted any of it!!! The tamales I bought from a student have been tough to pass on, but I have some stashed in the freezer for next month! tonight was tough, Paige wanted chicken noodle soup. No problem, except, I had to make the egg noodles. Now I love egg noodles, homemade, yummy goodness. Usually when I make them, I nosh on them before they even hit the pot. Who knew that eggs, flour, water,and salt could taste so good raw!! I did it!! I didn't eat any of them!! I pulled my soup out of the pot before adding the noodles. Breakfast is usually a 2-3 egg omelette with greens of some sort, onions, and bell peppers. Every once in a while I will bake up some bacon and eat it too. I often add a banana and a tablespoon or so of almond butter. I've tried avacado, but it made me sick, so those are a no go with my meal. I've struggled with my breakfast because I run an hour or so after I eat and then head to work. I'm not sure if I should be eating so much pre-run, but if I don't, then I don't get my breakfast. I've been tinkering with my post-workout snack. A hard boiled egg with chili powder sometimes, or that with some sweet potato. It's hard because i am usually eating my snack as I drive to work from the gym. if I don't pack something, I will grab some of the almonds in my desk before I head out to meet with students. I love lunch and dinner!! Lunch is leftovers, tuna stuffed peppers, and maybe some fruit. Dinnertime is interesting. figureing out what to fix for 5 while accommodating my needs can be difficult. I do have a picky eater in the house. fortunately, my sweet husband will eat anything i fix. coming up with the ideas is the biggest problem. Today, breakfast was a 2 egg omelette, peppers, and power greens, a banana and almond butter. No run, early day at work. lunch, steamed cabbage with onions, curry powder, and chicken apple sausage. yummo!!! dinner chicken soup with a side salad--spring greens, balsamic vinegar, kalamata olives, tomatoes, and sliced almonds. snack between lunch and dinner handful of almonds. tomorrow I run. I hope this cold will stop kicking my butt and that my energy will return. Last week was torture out on the trail. Wednesday was awesome, running in the storm, but Thursday-Saturday's runs were so hard. I had no energy, my muscles hurt,and my arms and legs felt like lead. i had a couple of days where I honestly felt like killing everything and everyone. I was also so tired that I was in bed by 9:30 most evenings, even on the weekend. Just exhausted. I hope tomorrow will be better. I need to go grocery shopping, not sure when to fit it in my schedule. I did pick up sweet potatoes today. Gotta cook some up in the morning for my post-workout.I'm hoping the trail will be clear tomorrow, it's been snowing all day and is finally sticking. Might have to pull out an old pair of shoes that aren't minimalist and hit the trail anyway. I can always run on the grass. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
