I feel like proper nutrition is the bane of my existence. I go on a diet, I’m tired all the time; I go off the diet, I’m tired all the time and I gain weight; and so it goes. So I am going to try and start with a clean slate by keeping a food diary this week that will also include keeping notes of how I am feeling, particularly before/during/after running. I figure this way I can (maybe) finally get a clear idea of what is working and what isn’t.
Simple, right? Why didn’t I do this before, you ask? Laziness! Plus, it can be so embarrassing sometimes to look at what you have eaten and realize that yes, you really did eat about five cookies when you weren’t actually hungry.
