I finally met that nutritionist!
Thursday, January 17, 2013
Well, that day went weird. Before going to bed yesterday, I prepared my things to do some cardio before my appointment. Then, I tried to open my 5 year old Ipod... No success. It died.
How could I train without an mp3 player? I was obsessed with that =P And when I have an idea in mind, it won't get out of my head.
So okay, I bought a brand new Ipod Touch and spent a lot on it. I walked 40 minutes in my day for it (fast walking, couldn't be late for work!) then walked 20 minutes to go to the gym for the nutritionist. Then, I realized that maybe it would be a great idea not to do too much exercise at the beginning (well, I am back to the beginning, let's face it) and that 60 minutes of walking at a great pace is maybe enough for the day.
I was thrilled to meet my nutritionist and I learned a lot. Even though I know a lot of theory, putting it into practice every day is another challenge.
She told my that with my training, she expects me to have 120g of protein every day. 120g?!? It's hard for me to reach 60 or 70! This will definitively be a challenge. She gave me a lot of good hints for my nutrition, such to replace peanut butter on my toasts by egg whites with some grated cheese (less than 20% of fat).
If I look at my sheet right away (she wrote some notes for me), there is also greats cereals : Kashi Go Lean Crunchy. I never ate that.
Also, I switched to 1% milk last week but have an hard time since it tastes like water. I can cut it with 2% milk.
The thing that I thought was the weirdest is that I should have 2 portions of starches for every meal. That means 4 toasts for breakfast or lunch! I am wondering how I could not go over my my calories that way but I will wait for my next appointment - we will make a food plan.
I won't lie to you, my house is a mess right know but I'm so sleepy again!
I have to clean the house but it will be on the week-end. I'm meeting my trainer tomorrow and I really want to do a cardio training this time! And for this... I have to put music in my mp3 player =P So I'll try to write back tomorrow.
