Wellness Wednesday

I know this blog is about training but I thought it would be kind of fun to talk a little about nutrition/diet today. I will start off saying, that by no means do I eat the way I should!

For the past two years I was on a project at my job that required me to travel once/twice a month for a week at a time. With this my came eating out 2 times a day for lunch and dinner. I tired my best to workout after work, but some days we were working 12 hour days. Needless to say I slowly put on some extra weight (about 10 pounds).
Well, our project ended in Jan of this year and this is the same time I added swimming and cycling to my training schedule. With this combination I have managed to lose those extra 10 pounds without much of an effort. I feel much better about myself now and I am finally able to fit back into all my clothes! Yippy!

In general I try to eat heathy during the week, the weekends maybe not so much. Yesterday I was super hungry all day! So after I ran 5 miles I went home and cooked chicken with broccoli, green squash, and baby tomatoes tossed with whole wheat pasta and a little bit of cheese. And of course after dinner I had some mint chocolate chip ice cream. For whatever reason I always like a little dessert after dinner.

More next Wed....
Have a great day :)
