So after my first marathon I decided I needed to get healthy. I was tired of eating poor furry, feathery creatures out of convenience. I have watched Food Inc. I don't like where our food system in this country has gone. I wish I could eat all organic and or local, but unfortunately I'm living on my parent's dime and they are not as committed to it as am. As it is though, I eat the bulk of my food organic and whole.
I was also tired of eating junk. I have successfully not eaten sugar for a week and vegetarian for one or two. I was vegetarian for MANY years and vegan for maybe 6-8 months last year? The problem is I am TIRED of peanut butter. I know there are plenty of other options, but peanut butter is just the easiest and most convenient thing to eat! What suggestions do you have for something quick, easy and not too high in calorie to eat on the go? Being a college student I have days where I am NOT home, so I'm literally grabbing and going! I don't want to go back to meet, but I have to admit grabbing a hunk of meat (gross words there) was a lot easier sometimes!
Running is going OK. I have decided I want to rest up until after the first of year which means focus on weights, swimming and enjoying myself then go for a BQ! Yes, that would mean a 26 minute PR, but surely I can do it?
What spring races are good for a BQ? I am debating Lincoln right now just because it's flat, but it is in May so could be hot which spells DISASTER for me.
It's BQ or bust in the spring. Summer I'm hoping to finally try a triathlon. I want to cross off some major life goals next year. I just found out some scary news about a friend and all I can say is Carpe Diem, you only get one life, live it to its fullest. Even the most unathletic can accomplish goals with enough hard work and dedication!
What do you want to accomplish in the next 6 months, year?
What do you vegetarians eat on the go? Help me please!
Peace, Love, Good Runs!
