Amanda Grace Wing's January 2012 Training Journal

Hello Everyone! I'm so excited to be a part of this community and share my own fitness and nutrition goals with all of you while working as a VBFF Mentor! Please feel free to send me a message if I can help you with your own goals!

For 2012 I plan to run my first full marathon (currently two half marathons under my belt) and begin sparring in boxing!

I'll be posting my workouts here along examples of my fuel (nutrition).

Happy 2012 and much success!

Hi Amanda,

You look amazing! Definitely a look to aspire to!!

Quick question - how much time do you wait between each meals?

Thanks! Look forward to learning more from your journal posts!

Hi there Nadilein! Thank you so much! Veggies do a body good! :)

I usually eat every 2- 3 hours. I like to do small meals more frequently because it keeps me energized and it's easier on digestion. Plus I am not a believer in feeling deprived or hungry. It's much easier to stay in the game when you have a snack or small meal you know is coming rather than eating a bunch of food and saying 'wow, I over did it. Now I can't eat until dinner' I'm a big believer in planning the day out so and keeping good food on hand.

One tip: Save all your glass jars from nut butters, salsa, etc. They make awesome, spill prof, and eco friendly travel containers!

Have a great day! Thanks for following!
