A non-running blog, it must be about eating then....

Sunday, April 04, 2010

So over the last two weeks I've gone to see an intern at my gym that has a background in nutrition. I have been finding myself hungry all the time, with headaches and just overall not happy, and still not losing weight. She gave me a plan last week.

So this week I have decided to really go for the meal plan my nutritionist-in-training told me. The goal is to bulk up my meals and snacks so that I have more energy to work out harder and can therefore burn more calories. I also really need to watch what I am eating. I hit some of the Easter candy hard (YUM!) and need to get back on track. I know eating lots of junk makes me feel less active and can give me a headache (much like not eating enough) therefore I shouldn't do it (poor yummy bunny....). Knowing something and following through can be TWO very different things :).

But for Monday this is what I have to eat:
0.5 C bulgur, 1 egg, 2 egg whites, .25 c blueberries, .5 tbsp honey
AM Snack:
1C non fat yogurt, .5 C strawberries, .05 oz almonds, 0.5 tbsp honey
5oz grilled chicken breast, 50 oz avocado, .5 c kidney beans, two lettuce leaves romaine (to make the wraps), 1C sugar snap peas, .5 C bean sprouts.
PM Snack
1tb PB, two bread slices (don't quite know what to do with the extra bread slice....)
Post Workout snack:
1C skim milk, 1C pineapple
5oz chicken, 1C basanti Rice (cooked), 1c cabbage, 1c other veggie

So about 1950 calories total. Approximately 32% protein, 21% fat and 42% carbs. (no that isn't 100%, but it is getting to late to recalculate it).

And for now, I am going to bed, please ignore any type-os it is past my usual bedtime.

    Good luck to you! My weight has been up a rock solid 5-7 lbs while marathon training. I've been hoping to drop it back down now that I'm not needing to fuel as much but, wow, it's hard to readjust the eating requirements. So smart of you to get a handle on it now. Why does food have to taste so good? lol!

    Good luck! But you know, bulgar rhymes with VULGAR! lol...j/k...I'm sure it'll taste just fine - I hope! Seriously, I was thinking about trying to eat more whole grain-type foods too like barley and stuff. I added ground flaxseed to stuff like non fat yogurt, old fashioned oatmeal with fresh fruit and stuff.

    I hope this will do the job! Let me know how it's going! Plus, we all want you to be HAP, HAP, HAPPY!!! =)
