Well I begin marathon training in a few days. I know it still sounds kind of scary, exciting, intimidating, humbling, terrifying, all of the above!!!
I'm at goal weight well .4 away for weigh watchers but I would like to drop 10 more pounds before the marathon and lose some more body fat. I got a caliber to measure and used the army guidelines as well. The caliber puts me at 22% and army puts me at 26%. Either way im in the 20s which is phenomenal compared to where I came from, but I want to be in the upper teens for the marathon. I want to be lean and trim so I can put less stress on my joints and be a lil faster ;)
My plan is to stay on weight watchers and become lifetime but I also want to do the paleo diet as much as possible. I have been researching it for some time and have come to the conclusion that it can only help me become more grounded with my eating and trim some body fat. Basically it focuses on cutting out grains and dairy among other things and eating natural clean foods. I do the no dairy already, I don't do much grains having celiac, so really it will not be too bad (I hope) to get into.
I am opening up to you all in hopes of a discussion going here. Have you tried paleo? Do you like it yes or no and why etc. Just share your thoughts I would greatly appreciate it :)
