Learning to Love More Protein

So, I said I would post my meals for the week and as you can see I only made it 5 days. That is more tracking than I've been doing and I had great results. I wish I could tell you how many points or calories I consumed over the weekend. But I cannot. All I can say is that girls night out + chips and salsa + Mexican Flautas + Margaritas + various other mixed drinks = hows counting points anymore??? I was proud I got my long run out of the way Saturday morning though since I knew I wouldn't feel well on Sunday. I ran 6 miles in 55 minutes.

I have learned that I really need to just try and eat as clean as I can. Processed foods don't get along too well with my tummy. Speaking of, I can't tell you how much easier it has been to run on the weekends for me now. Since I was eating a Luna or Clif bars, my tummy would start to run and give me shooting pains while running. That is no longer happening and it feels great! My goal is to not snack at night and track again to keep on points. Having more protein has helped me a ton. I know I could add more and add more in a more natural state, but I'm baby stepping it!

I found not counting points is working better for me right now. But I'm still tracking, and writing down what I'm eating!

Great run! And you plan sounds good, too. Keep it up and you'll be back down to where you want to be. Baby steps are the way to go.
