I mentioned in the past that I was running a marathon. I wanted to do this because I was getting fat and unsexy as well as I wanted to check it off my life-goal-list. The Napa Marathon is a month away and here is how I lost all that weight.
Eat Breakfast > This gives you the fuel to start your day. It also helps you snack less until lunch. I prefer Granola, Oatmeal with raisins, Cranberry Almond Crunch, Special K with strawberries & Blueberry Morning.
Goals > My end goal is to run 26.2 miles. That helps me keep on track for so many things. I realize if I cheat it only hurts myself. As well, it helps me stay focused daily on WHY it is important to be eating healthy.
Water > Jenn’s mom said soda was bad so I stopped drinking it. I am not sure if this really helps but I drink water like a camel. I think it does fill me up so I don’t eat as much but I go to the bathroom every 20 minutes.
Rewards > I try just on Saturday to splurge in terms of food and drinking. I don’t go crazy but I will add cheese to my burrito or possibly have a beer.
Puking > Just kidding:P
Alcohol > I am not trying to be metrosexual but when I go out to bars I consider how one beer is 130 calories and say “nay”. Really empty and pointless. I used to drink socially during the week but now I save it until Friday/Saturday and even then limit my intake. This really saves me a ton of calories that I did not think about.
Any other great tips that you have?
