Mel Z clean healthy eating....

Track and share your training!

Dailymile makes it easy to keep track of your workouts. Map your routes and share with a community of active people.

Clean healthy eating. So get home from a BBQ, log on to daily mile and instead of running or doing core work I find myself snacking on Lollies. What is wrong with this picture?? People, help me be accountable, and 24 hrs from now ask me if I stopped eating after 10 pm and didn't over do it on candy/Lollies. I will be strong if I know I'm going to get asked ! Thanks Guys. :-) now, let the insanity comments flow. Who's coming to Hawaii for the grass skirt race?

    @Melz & Goz. Marshmallows in small amounts are not too bad if they are the non gelatin variety. Gelatin is disgusting *insert puking face*. However the dehydrated apple slices Goz made earlier this week dipped in vanilla soy yoghurt and then double dipped in a cinnamon and brown sugar mix would have been to die for :)

    @Melz - I think it's because as more research comes out, people see that it's not terribly hard to actually be vegetarian and still get the nutrients one needs. Vegan is definitely harder. I'm like Kent, very slowly evolving to vegetarian. Not sure I'll ever get there, but I'll be happy if 60% or more of my meals are vegetarian :)

    I started reading your thread and couldn't stop laughing. Everyone sounds hyped up on sugar or caffeine :) Hilarious! I am working on trying to only eat set meals and snacks otherwise I eat all day with my kids. I gotta look good for vacation coming up so I really have to hammer it out. They should make an intake section here to follow nutrition as well. However, the race sounds fun, I would love to go to Hawaii but don't think I can pull that one over on my hubby :)
