Hey I'm glad you are sticking with that learn to run program. I did something like that when I first started running- and found it really helpful. Youll have to let me know how it goes!
My calorie target is between 1200-1550 range, but I am actually aiming for the higher end of 1350-1550 calories. The days where I am under 1200 are a) not accurate as it's probably because I've eaten something that is not in the counter, and I haven't been able to input it in b) there have actually been a few days where I've been feeling so good, eating really healthy that I am so full by the end of the day, despite eating less than 1200. Ha ha, trust me, those days are few and far between!
After I went to the dr yesterday, I stopped by the store and picked up fruit popsicles... and... wait for it.... Cheetos! I must admit, Cheetos are my gateway food, I really have a hard time stopping eating them when I start. I was brave enough to log it in my food tracker and incorporate it in. My goal today is not to succumb to the lure of those cheetos- wish me luck!
Have you thought of making a big batch of oatmeal and then reheating it every day. Thats what I do for steel cut oats, and it works really weell! Have a great day ole friend
Hey thanks for the comment! I have found that it's really easy to stay within my target calorie range if I pack my lunch and snacks, choose foods that are high in protein , fiber, and low in carbs and sugar, and stay away from processed foods. That way I can eat lots, feel full and not go over in calories.
Ive made alot of substitutions in my eating- little changes that I can live with and so far have gave me some great results.
I can see you making small changes in your daily life too- thats so awesome! Did you sign up for a running program?
