My blogging time has been a bit sparse thanks to a monster of a literature review, but I am happy to report that I am running regularly and feeling energetic and strong. My goal is to run 50 miles this month, and I’ve already accomplished 12. I am also using this month as an experiment in eating whole and unprocessed foods as much as possible. I ditched bagels for muesli with almond milk and cranberries, pizza for roasted vegetables, meat, quinoa salads, and crackers for fresh fruit. I will admit, the first day or so without junk food was tough. But I am really feeling good now! Much more energized and just the change in what I am eating for breakfast makes a HUGE difference in my morning. I used to feel like I had low blood sugar by about 10:00, but the power porridge I am making keeps me satisfied until noon. Of course, I still indulge in my two favorite health foods… dark chocolate and Pinot Noir.
Off to run by the water this sunny evening. Looking forward to another great week.
