Focus On Food

This week, I’ve really been trying to focus on food. I’ve been eating chicken, eggs, bagel thins with peanut butter, bananas and veggies. As a treat, I’ve had sugar-free chocolate pudding and a Hershey Kiss or two.

Still, I have been eating at the higher end of my calorie range to fuel up for the race this weekend. I read that it’s better to “carb-load” during the week prior to the race, than just the night before. I don’t think I’ve been eating too many extra carbs, but I’m not being as restrictive as I normally would, either.

I wrote an article for HellaWella.com this week about the guidelines I followed to lose the first 50 lbs. You can read it here! I think returning to the basics, such as the tips in this article, plus going back to my calorie limit of 1,500-1,700, will help me a lot.

While I’m excited about the race on Sunday, I’m kinda ready to get this half-marathon over with and get on to focusing on food and exercises to shave off the weight. It’s not that I can’t lose weight while training for along race, I just think it’s harder to do.

Do you ever lose weight when you train for long races? What would your Top 5 tips be to change your eating habits?
