One Pound = One Marathon

Friday, July 03, 2009

Last night as part of our marathon half-training we had a nutritionist address the group. My biggest takeaway from all of this... In one FULL marathon she consumes only about 3500 calories. I thought OMG for every pound I gain I have to run a marathon! Talk about putting things into perspective.

So once again, I'm trying to be careful about what I put in my mouth. My brain is what's trying to trick me. I'm hungry right after I eat. What's up with that? I CAN WIN that battle.

It will be a tough week. July 3rd marks the start of the Calgary Stampede and I expect to make 3 or 4 trips down to the fair grounds. I know it's possible to stick to healthy choices. If only fried onions and mini donuts didn't smell so good!

Now I just have to remind myself. One pound -> one marathon.
