Before my long runs I eat:

Monday, January 06, 2014

I normally eat a bowl of oatmeal two hours before I go for my long run. So I make sure that I get up two hours before I go for my morning long run on the weekend.
For shorter runs I try not to go running with a full stomach. But other wise I don't prepare for it very much.
After a long run (over one hour) or workout I eat a banana or drink a small bottle of chocolate milk, as soon as I can, after wards. emoticon

Measuring my food portions. . .

Saturday, December 14, 2013

Well it just not happening. I measure only what I think it is important but far from everything.
How do you do it? Do you do it?
I will not take measuring cups with me to restaurants.
I guess if loosing weight would be the most important things to me I would go out of my way to do it. Hay I go running in the purring rain, my neighbors' think I am nuts so how I get my self to measure my food?
I need to think this trough a bit more. emoticon

    I have been working hard to internalize my sense of portion size, so I don't have to measure. I think it's important for me and it's part of my goal to practice "mindful eating".

But since I find weighing every scrap of food to be inconvenient and tedious, I have been using a sort of practical guide I found on Web MD (
e/portion-control-size-guide). For a long time I had an odd collection of objects in a bowl on my kitchen table - but it helped a lot to see that my estimates of portion were usually larger than the recommended size. I'm getting better at eyeballing a plate full of food and deciding how much I should eat.

But when I get lazy about it when I'm eating out, I just make sure I don't eat more than half of anything I order.

    I measure at home somewhat, but don't when I go out. But I do try and order what I imagine to be low cal and reasonable, and do check the nutrition information online. Often times restaurants have the info online, sometimes I am surprised, but then if I ever go back then I know a bit more of what to order and what not to order. At home, I put recipes and such into the groupings part of the nutrition tracker and try and gauge how much of the whole I ate. I am sure I drive my family a tad nutty with my how much did you eat at dinner. But overall I measure enough that it generally works, except when I start measuring less accurately and am not exercising to the same level I have been.

    I go on the rough size of things especially when out and about. Next time you weigh out cheese compare it to something like a matchbox, your more lightly to remember then. In the staff canteen compare a baked potato to the size of your fist baked chicken could be your computer mouse etc. You will need to weigh it the first time though. Hope this helps a little, good luck.

I am proud of this three things that I have accomplished today!

Saturday, November 30, 2013

1.) My seniors group at the community centre elected me as their rep on the Advisory Board for 2014.

2.) I had a nice breakfast with my old skiing bodies.

3.) Programmed my repaired PC.



Moving on. . .

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

I just completed the 'Plato Busting' SPCoach program and I feel good about it. I have learned a lot about my self and how to make things work.
I have two more kilos to loose to reach my ideal weight as I see it, so it will give me something to do, ha.
I will use all the tools that I have gathered this program and if I need help I know I can count on my SP friends.
See you around and remember! Every day is a gift.
