The wheel goes round
With getting back onto my training routine there is also the diet that goes along with it. Since I've taken time off from serious training since the end of October its no surprise that I've gained more than a few pounds. So I've started back on my training diet and I'm really trying to watch what I eat. Sometimes changing the diet around is harder then the training itself. I even went so far today as I buy all the ingredients to make my own trail mix for snacks. Hmmm maybe I have issues? :)
So the question that I pose to the few people who have found my blog is what do you give up when you get serious about your training or close to a race? There are always those individual foods that we all crave and would love to have but we fight hard to control those urges. What comes to mind for me at the moment is bagels w/ cream cheese. When I'm running late in the morning nothing sounds better to me then a blueberry bagel from Einstein Bros. Bagels. So what do you all deprive yourself of, or at least to a certain extent?
