Beverly Dye's Training Journal (hummingbird) in Online Training Journals & Blogs Posted March 3, 2012 Wow! It has been a couple of weeks since I last logged on here. I have been away fro a couple of weeks though. Family stuff not always the most fun. Even though I didn't get much of a chance to log on here...I was still doing some training for the times colonist 10k run. It's getting a lot easier for me to run now...I am getting better and better each week. I feel stronger also. I have shed some weight...another 4 pounds...yiipeee!!!! I still do just light weights 3 times a week....but I do more cardio at this point. My diet is good...I have been able to find one that helps me to lose some weight...and maintain a good balance. I have a protein shake (Vega)..with banana or berries I also put a little oatmeal into the mix. After my run another protein shake with just berries and wheatgrass lunch I have a nice big salad with a little brown rice snack some hummus with veg dinner...depends on my mood.. but mostly a tofu stir fry with lots of veg before bed snack..sometimes just a bit of peanut butter ...I don't feel like I am starving when I wake up in the morning!!!
