Healthy Eating and New Jeans!

Lately I've been experimenting with eating "real food" over "chemicals." I decided after my run today, rather than the typical gatorade, I would try to do coconut water. The only ingredient in coconut water is "coconut water." So you know it's decent for you.
And let me just say, wow it's disgusting. This is probably the most disgusting thing I have ever put in my mouth. Give me regular water or Gatorade any day. Sorry, clean eating folks, I apparently like my chemicals.

I have been having trouble getting back into running this week. My typical weeks usually consist of about 30-35 miles. This week I have only done about 15 so far. I was supposed to run long today and only did 4. My body and my mind are just not into it. But I think I will try for a longer run tomorrow.

After this marathon training is over, I'm thinking about looking into kickboxing. I have always loved kickboxing and the strong, amazing way it has made me feel. But the last time I did it I was super overweight and felt out of place. I'm interested in how it will be now.

On a more exciting note, yesterday I had to buy new jeans because the ones I have are too big. Unfortunately, I still feel like my thighs are big tree trunks, but if the jeans size is going down, I guess that is a good sign.

Maybe kickboxing will do something for building muscle in my legs that running is just not giving me.

Well, off to enjoy my Saturday. Hopefully you will as well. Happy Weekend!
