CHEERING FOR MY TEAM



RUN: 30 min. /TREADMILL/ AVE HR=125

After running around like a maniac after work for the kids, I finally hit the treadmill at 630pm. I expected to have really tired legs but felt good. I wanted to get done early to watch the big game. I was positioned in front of the TV by 730 and ready to cheer for my alma mater. First play of the game was a touchdown. After that it was downhill and following halftime, I dozed right off. It was a great year for them but they were just not up for the championship.

On the eating fron, I've decided to use a 1400 calorie per day diet broken down as follows:

  • Fat = 39 g
  • Sat Fat = 13 g
  • Carbs = 175 g
  • Protein= 70 g
  • Cholestrol= 300 mg
  • Sodium = 2400
  • Fiber = 30 g
  • Sugar = 100 g

I am not sure how this will be with training. As always--flexibilty.

Waddling away a sad Buckeye..........

How are you planning to accomplish that? I guess you can use that pda type thingie, right? Do you put in the plan and it gives you the feedback on the content and then you adjust?

Your diet sounds good in terms of calories but to be honest I think you need to knock the fat back by 9 grams. I've always heard that 30 grams of fat is about right for women our size. That means more carbs! Might not make you happy but I'd swap fat for carbs any day.

The Nutri counter suggested a breakdown 50% carbs/25% protein/ 25% fat. I was also thinking the fat was high. I think the sugar is high also.

This former Buckeye is a bit depressed today. I went to bed at half time because I couldn't take the pain anymore. At least you still have the vicodan!

I am so on Planet Dawn right now that I didn't even realize OSU was playing until I heard they got beaten this AM!

I am horrible with nutrition. I'm usually all or nothing...overly strict or seize the day.

It sounds like you're feeling better! Yay! :)

Sorry about OSU. They did have a great year.

25% fat is fine, just be careful what types of fat you eat. I do worry that with your running, you will need more calories then that to keep your metabolism right. As you get closer to the event and are doing more long runs, you may need to increase your carb level a bit and will definitely need to increase the total amount, but for now it looks pretty good. Good luck!!!!

Much as I am a true blue Michigan fan, we (my boys and me) wanted to see the Buekeyes win this one. They are mad at Florida for taking the championship game away from Michigan. As for the food breakdown, that seems very detailed, more than I could manage to keep track of!
