That not so magical number

Ok post-marathon life is crazy. Apparently, I can’t leave work without everything exploding and then having to fix it upon my return. This also means lots more work for me. So in addition to missing 2 weeks ( 10 for vacation and 4 for the illness I came back with) I also am dealing with a whole lotta cray-cray!

However, I hit that not so magical number today. You know that number on the scale you swear you will NEVER hit and if you do then you must have some sort of problem. Well, I hit that this morning. Is it sad that the minute I saw the scale I wanted to run downstairs and eat a brownie? Anyone in my family, or that knows my family, will not be surprised by this in the slightest. I can’t help that I make really good brownies! The other night I had a chocolate craving and I made the box in the pantry. Typically, I eat one and then they get hard cause I forget to cover them and so I have no more interest. Except that this batch was slightly undercooked which means they were extra awesome so now I think about eating one for lunch everyday this week. Yea, Yea, I know I’ve found my problem!

So now in addition to the triathlon training I need to revisit (and apparently revamp) my diet. So increase the workouts and figure out how to adjust the eating without starving…that should be easy right??

Anyone out there with some tips or tricks to help me figure this out? (And please don’t say food tracking, I have follow-through issues, lol)

  1. When I was working with the personal trainer she had me do squats all the time and she swore that exercise didn’t help you lose weight unless you added weight resistance. Ankle weights, hand weights etc. I was never so sore in my life but the weight fell off. And a really strict diet of all natural foods. Just passing on that $1500 knowledge! Hope it helps! Squat. Squat. Then squat again!

  2. I’ve realized that eating better simply comes down to making the right decisions. You know what to eat and what not to. Each time you eat you have a choice, make it the right one. At the end of the day, you’ll feel better for making those decisions and it will be that much easier tomorrow. If you make the right choices, amount of food will be less of an issue.

    Also, fill up on veggies.

    And don’t keep brownie mix in your cabinet 🙂

  3. I would like to thnkx for the efforts you’ve put in writing this blog. I’m hoping the same high-grade blog post from you in the upcoming as well.
