Who needs skinny? When you can ULTRA

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Oh to be skinny..sigh. Its a quest i have been on since having my last baby 4 years ago. WOW 4 years!! Awe. The dream keeps me tracking cals and obsessing over pants sizes. Until...I decided to train for an Ultra marathon! I quickly realized I cannot eat eat 1600 cals and run 35+ miles a week!! So I am gonna stay chunky, not weigh in and run a 50K!

I do seem to have deflated a bit. 1 month "progress"

I still lift just not as heavy

Ill keep running and save skinny for the others who want it emoticon

    I appreciate this! We have similar body types, I've mentioned that to you before. I realized that my athletic body can't look like some other types. I have broad shoulders, thick quads, muscular calves...When I put on weight, it tends to settle in the middle. But if I keep the diet clean and get enough protein, watch out! LEAN MEAN MACHINE, lol! Keep up the positive vibes darling!

    Hardcore!! Find the right balance between distance running, heavy lifting, and nutrition....these are tough to do simultaneously, especially since distance running can be catabolic

    Good luck.....stay strong!!!
