Now that I got your attention…I’m here to talk about food.

Specifically, eating healthier food.

Meredith over at Swim Bike Mom made a post today about she’s going to apply her triathlon training skills and determination to eating better.

As she put it, “Food is my fuel and I am filling my tank with poop-sicles.”

*snicker* Poop.


Back to food: the key will be slow, deliberate training on eating better. Celebrate the victories and don’t dwell on the failures.


I’m going to follow her lead and take things one meal at a time…and not dwell on the fact I ate fried Mahi-Mahi tacos off a food truck for lunch today instead of the Amy’s roasted vegetable tamale I brought. 😉

I do know what to eat and what not to eat; it all boils down to being lazy and complacent.

Moving to a new house – and relying on eating out and convenience foods for many meals in the week before and the weeks after – really did a number on my healthy cooking and eating habits. Again, that will change.

I didn’t run a half-marathon the first week I started training. I did a couple of miles and over time I worked up to that distance. Retraining my eating has to be the same way.

It’s a strange coincidence that Meredith and I both work in law firms and that we both have extremely stressful weeks coming up. Even more reason to be strong!

I think I can do this, though. It helps having someone go through it with you. 🙂

(Thanks for letting me piggyback on your post, M!)
