StarandLuna's Journal, 12 April 2011

Gosh, running has gotten to be so boring. I tried to make it more interesting by mixing it with some walk/sprint. But most of the time I feel like it's so boring. I did tempo run today and it was nice, but I feel like I'm not challenging myself enough.

As for the eating, wow, the way I have been eating is not that healthy as I thought. I had always thought that I was a healthy and balance eater. But from reading some of my food journal previously and from this site, I learned that I snack way too much on carbs and heavy starchy stuff: donut, rice cakes, rice chips, even muffins, cheesecake. I don't eat that much fruits. I do eat vegetables but not a lot. Well it doesn't seem like a lot.

Perhaps my biggest culprit to the weight gain is from the CARBs and the snacking. And this I also learned: I don't drink enough water. Like I drink water, but not enough to flush the toxins out of my system. Like I feel like if I drink water everytime I craved for a starchy snack that would help me a lot.

Lastly, I find that in the evening I like to snack a lot. Argh! Like I want to put everything in my mouth. And with me thinking too much about the 'calories' I feel like all I can think about is food, food, food.

- I think right after a workout, I should drink a protein shake.
- I think I need to eat the carbs in the morning, and more protein and veggies throughout the day. I feel more full if I eat carbs (no cereal though as I feel like it doesn't do anything for me...).
- I think I need to add more fruits/veggies in my snacking process. I like fruits and veggies and prefer them over donuts - but why is it that I grab a donut before an apple? Hmmm.... good question to think about.
