Thank you for all of your advice for training. I’ll see how I’m doing and decide from there. Right now running 20 (possibly alone) sounds like something I’m not going to do. I’m not tooo concerned right now, since all I want to do is finish. It is kind of nice not having the pressure.
I have been eating pretty well. My main crap time is dinner and after dinner.
Breakfast has been oatmeal, pb, flax and wheatgerm. I don’t know if I need both of those but it adds different flavors. The only bad thing is by the time I get downstairs to eat (after feeding, changing Nick and changing myself) I am ravenous. I start getting the stuff together for oatmeal and eat scoops of peanut butter while I wait for the oatmeal to cook. Very bad. I think once the naturally nutty is gone (1 jar left – but I did give 3 away, still, yikes) – I will do better. After breakfast I don’t really eat meals, I just eat when hungry – not a priority right now! Ha.
So I’ll eat maybe a balance, power or luna bar. And the new flavor for Luna is White Chocolate Macadamia – it is so good!! I’ve been making smoothies as well. And I’ll eat a mixture of Kashi cereal with cranberries and almonds.
Dinner has been whatever I can throw together – I need help with this. There’s always some kind of veggie and protein (veggie burgers, tofu, fake chicken patty, etc – boca/gardenburger stuff). Some nights a grain – pasta/bulgar/couscous.
I always get out the recipe books and they SIT there.
Boca burgers, cheese, pasta, mushrooms, sweet potatoes (thanks for THOSE recipes, I chopped them up with olive oil and baked them tonight – really good!) And with ketchup XC2!
Not sure that I’m eating enough or if I just want a dessert after dinner so I’ve been eating GS cookies, Trader Joe’s Joe Joe cookies – a mix of them. I may start eating a Luna Bar for some extra sweetness. Oh, some nights I have more peanut butter or almond butter.
Then – the middle of the night when I get up to feed Nick, I started telling myself that I’m hungry. Sadly, I keep granola bars in the nursery. I need to move them and just drink water.
I really don’t think I’m hungry at that hour. I guess just since I am awake. Isn’t it weird how when we are sleeping we don’t need to eat? How much work is my body actually doing making milk? I don’t think that I need all that more calories because I’m really not starving at anytime (besides breakfast)…
So overall, doing pretty well with the nutrition but would like to rev up the dinner.
It would be great to be able to order from a menu of healthy organic foods every night. For free.
