I'm not sure exactly what it was. I'm not sure whether it's all in my mind. I'm not sure if I was just having a bad week or two. What I am sure about though is that the small intake of carbs between Thursday and Sunday certainly contributed to my increased performance over the weekend. … Continue reading Carbs are back
Its been 8 weeks and I've discovered I need to change where I'm going with lchf. It might seem a bit 'oh I love this, its fantastic' one minute and the next 'ugh, feel like shit, it's not working', I see that. I am in both of those camps right now. I figure eight weeks … Continue reading 8 weeks – time to re-assess
It’s a semi rhetorical question. Every body is different and everyone has their own requirement and routines that determine what they eat. Seriously though, (for those not already on a lchf type w.o.e.) would you ever consider pulling up the roots on all those delicious carbohydrates. I have a love affair with potatoes, rice, pasta … Continue reading Could You not eat carbs..?
What could be better than anticipating lunch time at work. Not for the break, but for the food. Most of the time I am just happy to get off my feet and rest properly, but this week it was all about the food. My menu plan worked a treat and each day I enjoyed a … Continue reading A week of food
I wrote a short post on Facebook about food prep and how it is changing my mornings (and evenings) for the better, as well as my whole week. When you are organised in one aspect you can concentrate on others, and slowly you are organised in enough areas that the rest just falls into place. … Continue reading Food prepping for better lunches
After a month or more off and doing pretty well nothing since Point to Pinnacle I was sorely under trained for this race. I made an effort to get a few runs in and mediocre strength training, at least so my joints would be able to manage to movement. Each run was tough and wore … Continue reading Cadbury 10k – 14/1/18
So I can eat these (and other) delicious items.... Enjoy
Twelve months ago I was running all the time. Loads of 3.4 - 5.8k. Every day almost I was running. I was fit. I was strong. And when I went on holiday, I was confident I could do anything because I had trained my body, I had changed how it functioned. I felt awesome. I … Continue reading Diet is everything
Last night's weight in was not pleasing but expected. A minor gain which is understandable given my body has been in recovery mode. But now to my general diet and what I do. Yesterday's post was highlighting the worst I can do. Even being on a lifestyle plan. It's not a diet, it's a change … Continue reading Diet. Lifestyle choices. Culinary intake.
I have a really good appetite. I love food. Good food, Bad food. Pretty much all food. I'm not overly fussy when it comes to eating. Give me a super sized steak and I'll demolish it in no time. Complete with lashings of hot mustard. I like desserts, but it's not a sweet tooth I … Continue reading (bad) Food! and exercise
