So everyone knows that to get good results you have to eat the right foods. Training for a marathon can definitely make that tricky because as much as you want to eat well, you also feel like you deserve to stuff your face with burgers, ice cream and chocolate after those long weekend runs… or is that just me?:)
This week I have been snapping pictures of my meals and making a concentrated effort to make healthy choices that I feel will nourish my body for my Sunday run. I don’t count calories, or macros etc. I just eat what makes me feel good and I am learning to stop when I’m feeling full. Keeping a visual food journal for a few days has allowed me take a more in depth look at what I am consuming. Here are my Wednesday, Thursday and Friday meals!
If you like seeing what I eat please feel free to leave a thumbs up or short comment. I always find it interesting so see what others are eating and how they workout and I’m more than happy to share.
