July Focus Eating Habits

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

So now that I’m thinking what’s the next step for me? July will be all about focusing on nutrition. We all know that I workout like crazy but it’s not resulting in weight loss because my food intake is still my biggest struggle. So I will be going back to my usual workout schedule. Running on non gym days with 1 long run a week and focusing on strength training on my gym days (FM=400). I read about this app in the newest issue of Fitness Magazine . It’s an app that’s $15 a week and you send pics of everything you eat from your smartphone to a nutrition coach, who then sends you feedback. If I do this for a month, that’s $60 and just 1 meeting with my dietitian is either $50 or $99 so the price is not bad. Plus I’m worth it. (Still waiting to get my invite to join.)

I pledge to
1) Preplan my meals every morning
2) Eat my carbs at breakfast and lunch and dinner will be protein and veggies (they can have carbs)
3) Look into sugar free eating and find adequate replacements for the things that I eat that have sugar in them. I want to start SF in August
4) Finish reading Body for Life for Women and implement the plan for Milestone 3 Perimenopause and Menopause
5) Stay way from my insensitive foods – Gluten, Green Beans, Dairy, Onions and Eggs
6) Write it BEFORE I bite it, including the time I eat
7) Max out all of my Nutritional Challenges for the BLC25 Navy Ninja spreadsheet

This blog was supposed to be my goal for June but I'm 1 month behind. Just had a lot of things going on in June but I did try to live by my 7 pledges. Some better than other.

I'm still NOT back to my goal weight. I really think that focusing on nutrition and going back to my heavy lifting will do the trick. But even if the scale doesn't more as long as my bodyfat goes down, I'll be thrilled.

I also found a new emoticonto sign up for. It's Oct 18. I also ordered The Runner's Diet book. I'm hoping it will help with me figure out how to eat to fuel my running AND lose the extra few pounds.

    I love BFL but prefer the original to the "women" one. Following his ideas got me in the best shape of my life at one point, particularly the ST and HIIT schedule along with the nutrition plan--although I've been taught how to get away with eating more since then using Ruben Sandoval (Flexchef here on SP) and Fit to be in your Kitchen nutrition plans. I'd highly recommend him if you're considering shelling out for nutrition. That app sounds interesting too!

    The tough part is the whole too much cardio thing if you like to do running or other activities. . . Makes ya hungry!

    I would be curious to hear about the book since most of what I have read indicates training for LDRs is not the time you would lose weight. Probably because your food intake goes up.

    Sometimes the reset button is the best button. emoticon

    Best of luck to you on your goals.
