Its almost 9:00. I am done going through my emails and is stating at this tumbler of brewed coffee sitting in front of me. Of course I already recorded its existence in my food journal. I will be sipping this hot, strong, but not so sweet beverage until around 10 in the morning. I am also thinking of heading donstairs and check some morning snack options available for me.
So here is how Day One looked like:
It looks good I think. We’ll just see if the calories would not exceed the 1,400 mark. I hope they don’t. Except for the Earl grey pearl milk tea and the cookie, I am pleased with my choices. Well of course this is not new for me as I have one this before.
This used to be my normal food intake and my usual training day. That was back in the pre-cancer days. I also make it a point to move around a lot. Well I was moving around a lot yesterday as I had to go to the hospital accross the street for my check-ups.
After my training run last night, I was playing with my garmin and saw that the calories burnt were also part of the stats provided so I decided to put that in my food journal as well. Now that its there, I am thinking of renaming the journal from “food” to “fitness” or maybe “weightloss.” The modification is of course to show my nutritionist how active I am or I try to be. I guess the motivation really is for nutritionist to see that hey he burns a lot so the calorie intake can be increased. Of course this is just hungry me speaking. This is not possible, NO not unless I lose the 11lbs!
Rest is very important during training. That is why I only run three or four times a week. In between runs I workout with my trainer. One of the resolutions I made last night after my run was to put on my pedometer on non-running days and try to record 20 thousand steps a day.
Now what will I eat for morning snack? I am already sipping coffee but the AM snack on the suggested meal plan handed to me by my nutritionist last night looks delicious. Mixed fruits with yoghurt! Hmmmm that looks like a nice snack!
