The past few years I’ve done a holiday run streak from Thanksgiving to New Year’s. This year, in addition to making sure I run at least 1 mile every day during that period, I’m also going to blog my food log.
The hope is that I make better food decisions, knowing I’ll be recording my daily intake in a pseudo-public space. But I also think it will be kind of interesting. Having fun with my daily eating plan is the biggest key to how well I control intake. My worst days, as I’ve told my sister numerous times when we troubleshoot our dietary struggles during our runs, are when I don’t have a plan. Or when I’m bored.
I don’t really have time for this right now, as I’m hustling to finish up a fairly consuming writing project. But I tend to track my intake most days, anyway, so it shouldn’t take too much extra time to just put that on the blog. I may not post every day, but I’ll catch up on any missed days when I do post.
The plan is to start this food diary on Thanksgiving, though I likely won’t post anything until Friday. Here’s hoping everybody reading this has a happy Thanksgiving, with good times to go along with good food.
