Here is a short bio of Caroline:
I am Caroline. I am from Quebec, Canada.
I am 42 years old and I have 2 sons aged 5 1/2 and 7.
I am a full time parent, much harder job than what I used to do before having kids!
I am very involved in my kids sports activities and I volunteer at their school every week.
I started running 18 mos ago. My first race was the 2010 Susan G Komen race for the cure in LA. I did that in honor of one of my friend. I never stopped running since then.
I have ran 23 races so far, 2 of those were half marathons. In 10 days I will run half marathon #3 (which she just did.)
My goal is to run a Marathon before I turn 45.
I have lost 72 lbs some due to illness in 2009 and some because of lifestyle changes following that. I have GERD (Acid Reflux) and it is under control for the most part if I follow a pretty strict diet and I take my meds every day.
Here is what Caroline ate one day to fuel and recover for running:
It is very hard to look at this day of eating and find anything wrong with it. Without delving into the actual percentages of macro nutrients this seems to be a well balanced day. I would also like to point out that she snacked throughout the day so she most likely doesn’t feel cheated and she drinks plenty of water which will help stave off hunger and help hydrate you at the same time.
Caroline this is a great day of eating and based on your email this is typical for you. I commend you on choosing wisely and applaud you for doing something to lose those 72 lbs. That is a tremendous accomplishment and congrats on the 16 minute PR.
