Only 4 weeks until the 10K Coaster Run

Friday, February 11, 2011

I actually like running now.

I am finally up to 4-5 miles at a jog, but a continuous pace.  I am hoping I am at 6-7 Miles comfortably come the end of March for the 10K I want to do at Knotts Berry farm.  I still need to start watching what I eat more as the scale has stayed the same still, but I know I am losing inches here and there and my shape is changing for the better.

I've also been doing zumba, 30DS and JW on my cross train days as well as weights when I can get to the gym.

If I can't its a lot of AB work, chair dips, Planks and push-ups at home.

Food for thought....

Diets tell you when and what to eat, and to rely on 

willpower and self-control, but willpower takes effort 

and doesn't last long. You usually end up feeling 

deprived, ultimately leading to overeating again…. and 

therefore weight gain. No diet or eating plan will EVER

work unless you first work on fixing the ROOT cause of

your overeating. Take the time to work on it and you'll 

solve the problem for good.


So I have been eating either a protein shake,  steel cut oats and agave nectar or an egg burrito in the mornings.  Today, I had the eggs after nearly getting blown away on my morning run.
Anyhow it consists of:

1 whole egg
2 egg whites
1 Whole wheat tortilla
2 cups of spinach (fresh)
1.5oz of Feta cheese
chili sauce

All the in a big 'ol burrito is only... 268 calories. I know this to a "T".  Down to measuring out the oz for the feta.

Try it sometime... it's really delish.

Smart Phones....

Oh how I would be lost without my new Evo.  it does everything for me.  I love that I can scan a bar-code and get my caloric intake for that item and and track my calorie deficit.  Awesomeness... In the past I was writing it all down... not anymore.  I am moving up with the times.  Plus,  I have my MapMyRun app. which is pure heaven for runners.  I have the Nike + ipod too which is also pretty cool.  David, my dear sweet husband got me a new Nano, shoes, etc. for my birthday/anniversary this year. I wanted these things over a vacation this year.  Plus, we're having out night away this weekend anyhow.
