Eating Clean

There is a big difference between dieting to lose weight and eating clean to get lean.

I think for a long time I’ve tried to diet to lose weight not realizing that it’s a bad BAD idea in my case because:
         #1: I don’t need to lose weight
         #2:I am a long distance runner (need actual energy to perform well during my workouts).

After much self-convincingI decided to start the Eating Clean deal along with tweaking my exercise routines. I will be focusing more on building muscle rather than losing overall body mass.
Thescariest thing about all of this is the amount of food I actually have to eat…….. and the fact that I have to eat every 2-3 hours. It’sscary because is new and I have never ever done this before. If I have to look back and point out a moment in life when I was eating clean: ZERO. I’ve tried diets and abstaining from fast food as punishment. Even starving myself from time to time in order to feel like I was actually going somewhere.

Did I get anywhere?Nope.

I am honestly still kinda lost with this new style, but we’ll see how it goes. So far it’s been two days and I have a headache from all the sugar withdrawals…. I drink way too much sugary crap. MY GOODNESS. I know it’s normal until my body levels off once again.

Other than that everything is fine. I have a 5.0 mile run later today so I’ll definitely see how that goes.

My grocery MUST-HAVES. I get these items every time I go to the grocery store. So many things you could do with each one, whether it’s breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks.
My favorite? Probably bananas or canned tuna :)
What are your grocery store must-haves?

My list would include:
apples
lemons
tomatoes

Okay so I am a horrible blogger……..

I have been MIA for the past months.

I am truly sorry. I just got busy with life. I hadn’t spent much time on tumblr since God knows when, until a couple of weeks ago when I started checking out some blogs.

Then I realized I used to blog.

Then I started hating myself for being all sucky and what not.

But here’s to new beginnings! (Literally)
I will post tomorrow what my new life will consist of for the next… months;)

(And yes, it is fitness related).

I have missed you, tumblr!

That feeling when you should be concentrating on studying…

but you daydream about running instead.
:/

Tomorrow is my last day. Can’t come any faster!

  • Me: I hate relationships.....
  • Audrey: you have chips?!

This morning I ran 7.0 miles. Uphill.

And it hurt. And then I did arms, and they hurt too:)

And now I am just getting mentally prepared to study for my LAST FINAL.
