The Plan

Monday, September 26, 2011

Alright....here is the plan for the next 8 weeks before my half marathon.

>Lose 10 lbs.
~Why? This will make me a faster and lighter runner. It will make the half marathon an easier task as well as making me feel better on race day!
>Get 4 runs in a week, as well as 2 days of ST and cross training . (total of 6 days exercise with one rest day)
~Why? To become a more in shape person and be able to conquor my half marathon faster and easier!
>Eat 1500 calories each day.
~Why? To maintain the calorie deficit needed in order to lose 10 lbs by the half marathon.
>Watch carbs/fat/protein balance during week with one carb load night before each long run.
~Why? Because I have been carb loading ALL week instead of just before my long run and it is making me gain weight.

The plan of food for this week is:
Bfast each day: Boiled egg on light whole grain bread
Lunch each day: left-overs from dinner night before.

Monday - Broiled fish with green beans, broccoli, brown rice
Tuesday - Grilled chicken, sweet potato, zucchini
Wednesday -Club sandwich with salad
Thursday - Pork tacos
Friday - Ribs, potato salad, squash casserole.
Saturday - Wedding/bridal shower foods
Sunday - Steak, artichokes, rice, green beans

So today is the grocery shopping for all of that! LOL. Hope it goes well with hubby.

I know this is post number two of today, but I'm really trying to get on board and keep motivated this time.

    Your meal plan seems so simplified when you eat the same breakfast and leftovers for lunch every day. (I should do this). That will help you stick to it! If you don't cook your healthy dinner one night, you're cheating yourself out of two great meals instead of one!
