Eating Like a Runner: Part 2

I know people are 50/50 on whether or not they love or hate reading about food. People are also 50/50 on whether they give a crap about fitness and running, but, since this is my blog, I can do what I want 😉

After talking about not counting calories, I decided to log calories for today so everyone can get a sense of how much I’m eating and when I’m eating. I’m definitely a learn by example kinda gal, and I’ve always appreciated people being honest and having illustrative examples.

So, what do I eat on a typical day?

Coffee. Always coffee. The first thing I do when I finally get out of bed (after hitting snooze a zillion times) is turn on my coffee maker. Bonus this week? Bailey’s creamers. Mmmmmm.
