Trying Something New

Sunday, March 13, 2011

I have not been logging my food at all lately. Stupid me.

But I'm curious about something. My hubs and I decided to go pescetarian for Lent. That's lacto-ovo vegetarian plus seafood. No beef, pork, chicken, or (sadly) lamb. Oh yeah, or turkey. You get the idea.

On my regular diet, I am not good at getting enough protein. Never have been. Since Lent started last week, I'm now on my new diet until Easter, I wonder how I'll do. So I've told myself that I will seriously track myself for a week and see how I do on protein. This is also good since the hubs needs much more protein (& everything else) than I do. Want to make sure we are both getting enough. Having the seafood option will help with that.

I also didn't realize I hadn't blogged at all on here since December. Guess it's update time. I am only losing weight very slowly. I'm also a little behind on my running right now as I train to walk a marathon. I've been very focused on walking. So once I accomplish that on March 27, I will kick the running into high gear. I have to decide on what I'm training for next.

This fall will be the next Transmountain Challenge here in EP. I did the 5k last year. This year I will do either the full run or the bike. The run is half marathon and the bike is full marathon. So I have to figure out which one I want to do.

That's all for now!

    ZEWOMAN89 - We have already been experimenting with tofu some. We will be eating more beans as well. For dinner tonight, I'm taking a pasta dish that usually uses kielbasa or polish sausage and using kidney beans instead!

    Try adding tofu into your diet. You don't want to eat it plain, but put it in where you'd normally eat meat--tofu lasagna, tofu tacos or burritos, tofu stir fry, etc.

    It has 7 grams of protein per 3 ounce serving, 3.5 grams of fat, and 70 calories.

    Good luck!!

    First off good for you in trying something different. I am at an end at times getting my family to try new recipes and break away from the old stuff. Please let us know how you feel afterwards because I personally have never heard of pescetarian until you explained it. Your Trans-Mountain Challenge sounds really good. I have been working out in the gym but I am considering running a few more 5K runs and getting outside now that the weather is getting better. Good luck on either the full run or the biking!
