vegetal ! like rah rah vegetal! like fresh rain and a freshly picked garden. like a cucumber salad or wheatgrass shots after a great run.

and it’s slightly naturally sweet too.
so glad i got this early on and don’t know why it’s not already gone. though i’m glad it’s not because it will be perfect for spring. the bright green leaves and cloudy lime colored liquor will make the sun seem just a little warmer.

for lunch today i went and took and short ABS class. also i’m lazily attempting Intermittent Fasting. no doubt i’ll talk about it too much on here. it’s what i do.

How come you’re attempting Intermittent Fasting?

hi Lynne-tea! ummm sorry in advance for this kinda a long complainey sounding story??
i will preface this by saying that i am not a petite gal. i am basically an amazon and am by no means underweight and i don’t have a runners gangly body.
but basically, all my crazy marathon training has me eating like a crazy person. (i ran a marathon saturday too) my appetite is sky high. which is okay enough, but lately i’ve been making dumb food choices. and i pay for it with bad nights sleep and bogged down training runs and some weight gain. i’m running 3 marathons in April and the next 3 weeks i am tapering training, which means less miles. so it’s a good time to experiment and train my hunger impulses to chill out a bit more.
if i eat lots and really healthy i have a MUCH better time running.
i will say though that it’s almost 4p and i feel STUFFED on the half of the giant lunch i ate. the experiment continues!
have you done IF before? basically i’m reading up on the leangains model and eating all my calories for the day in an 8hr window starting at 1pm.
blah blah blah
i could talk about this forever.

Thats really neat! I always skipped breakfast and had no problem maintaining a lower, cut weight. But now, due to pressure from my family and friends, I’ve started eating breakfast. I hate it. I get hungry within a few hours of having my breakfast and now I’m gaining weight… not too much, but enoughs enough. I’m not going to conform!
I wish you luck :)
