I think a big problem for me is FOOD. I love food, its comfort and fun for me. I am a total sweet tooth and it's hard to control sometimes. I get really snaky at night and just want graze. After the kids go to bed I just sit on the couch and relax with food and TV. I have a problem! I run to stay sane and relax after the kids go to bed each night so I can have some down time. When you are running a lot you get hungry and need to eat for fuel, but it's so hard to balance when food is a struggle to begin with.
What do you do while training? Do you just eat what you want? Do you watch what you eat all the time? Or just when you have a long run planned? Maybe you are a healthy eater all the time? I can get the exercise in now I just need to get the food down.
I hope today was just a case of the Mondays and I will feel better. I do think the lack of healthy nutrition is playing a roll with my energy and I haven't been taking my vitamin D like I usually do. When you are losing so many calories it’s easy to eat whatever, but that can defeat the purpose of what I am trying to do! I need a pick me up. Hope an evening run will help a little...we will see!
