Week one is in the books!  4 pounds down and I couldn’t be happier.  Had my meeting with Carli and got some great advice – more protein and less carbs – AT NIGHT!

I am slowly breaking the habit of choosing the easy option for dinner – NO CEREAL! Several nights I had an egg burrito (also known as a breakfast burrito when you actually have it for breakfast).

Here’s what I put in my burrito: 2 scrambled eggs, 2 green onions (diced), 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, 2 slices of turkey bacon, and two GIANT scoops of salsa – all wrapped in a medium flour tortilla.  I really like this as a dinner option because it is very filling; however, I think I am going to improve on the ingredients: whole wheat tortilla, egg whites, and 2% cheddar cheese.

I’ve also discovered how to make plain Greek yogurt delicious – add 1 tablespoon of honey and some granola.  I’ve even come up with a technique to make sure I don’t use too much granola – I keep the yogurt in the single serving cup and put in just enough granola so that it doesn’t spill out when I stir it all up.  I am really bad at eating more than the serving size, so this is a way I can keep that under control.

I am still trying to figure out how to fuel on long runs, so for my next long run I am going to try Honey Stinger organic energy chews.  The energy chews are made from all-natural ingredients (organic tapioca syrup and honey).  They are actually pretty tasty and very easy to carry.

I think in order for me to be successful with the REBLANCE program I have to make little changes, so this next week, I am going to incorporate more veggies into my diet and try out two new dinners.

Here’s my workout schedule for the week:

Saturday – snowboard – love recreational fitness

Sunday – snowboard

Monday – strength & conditioning class with my trainer Charles Ceasar at Fairtex Fitness

Tuesday – 5 mile trail run – nothing better then an outdoor run on a crisp day

Wednesday – strength & conditioning with my trainer Charles Ceasar class at Fairtex Fitness
