Completed a second week of relatively clean eating as I train for the upcoming Tokyo Marathon. Kept junk food to a minimum and have been sticking to a diet full of carbohydrates, vegetables, and fruits with a moderate amount of protein. I did overeat on a few occasions, breaking my “stop eating at 80% full guideline.” Will need to be a little more disciplined this upcoming week.
My weight was a little higher than last week, but I seem to be doing a decent job of balancing my calories with energy expenditures. A weight range of 140 to 145 lbs seems to be about right for me. Plan to be in the the low 140s come race day.
Start – 144.4 lbs (65.5 kg)
Week 1 – 141.5 lbs (64.2 kg)
Week 2 – 143.5 lbs (65.1 kg)
Here’s a list of the core things I ate: Rice, natto, vegetables, lots of bananas, apples, sushi, mikans, beans, noodles, whole wheat cereal, almonds, dried mango, bagels, vegetable/bean soup, eggs, chocolate, chicken wraps, tofu, yogurt, tea, coffee and tap water.
Below are pictures of what I ate all week, although I forgot to photograph a couple meals.
