    I think it’s hard to listen to an RD sometimes. I don’t doubt there education but everyone is different and everyone’s body is different. You know your body and you know how to loose weight (as you have) and I truly believe you have to do what’s right for you. I was told by a nutritionsist I needed to do this/that and whsatever to loose weight and I basically starved myself with this diet but didn’t loose a pound. Recently I was diagnosed with Gluten Intolerance and dropped 4.2 poinds in a week. My body was hating me for eating Gluten!

    If I don’t start the morning with protein AND carbs, I am one grouchy woman. I need the combo!! Oh, and coffee.

    I need protein and carbs too! Oatmeal made with milk and topped with fruit and nuts is the best of both worlds 🙂

    I think you’ll notice a big difference when you start amping up your morning protein. I do my workouts in the wee hours of the morning and I have a smoothie with protein in it almost every day…. it’s amazing how much stronger I feel than if I had a more carb-heavy breakfast. Congrats on your race! 🙂

    I’ve been trying to eat more protein in the mornings, but I love oatmeal, so I could never give up carbs for breakfast!

    Good luck with the work catch up! It’s the only bummer about coming home from a trip!

    Haha it’s all about balance! I try to get the best of both worlds by adding an egg or protein powder to my oatmeal. Although my nutritionist told me to eat more carbs!

    I hear you on the tight legs and hips. I need to do a good yoga class sometime soon. I haven’t been yoga-ing in far too long! Congrats on the RnR marathon!

    Poor Maddi! Not that I run, but I’ve been dealing with super tight hips myself- ever since I injured my IT band this summer.. it just hasn’t been the same.. But I’m a slacker when it comes to stretching- i should probably get on that.

    I am definitely a ‘protein in my breakfast’ eater. I need it, crave it, love it.

    Have a good stretch tonight!

    I am a huge protein at breakfast gal. my only carbs usually come from 1/2 cup old fashioned oats. then i have eggs, protein powder and a teeny bit of nut butter. You get used to it, so good luck making the switch!

    Just add a greek yogurt or an egg or some protein powder. Still have the cereal bc carbs are great for you too! And make sure you are getting fat in too! I also think weight training is key! I know you love running but too much running and not enough lifting can make your muscles “mushy”. haha

    So I am just wondering, but what type of dog is Maddie? She looks like a Jack Russell. I have a Jack Russell and I take her jogging with me a lot. I read your race recap of running on halloween and that it was so cool that you went running with her. Congrats on finishing the marathon!!

    I disagree with the dietician–with your activity level carbs are important! Adding a 2% greek yogurt would give you 20g of protein, added much needed fat and balance the whole meal so you’ll stay full longer. I’m always suspicious when an “RD” tells an active person to decrease carbohydrates (the poor maligned, misunderstood carbohydrate!) as opposed to adding protein and fat.

    Awwww, it’s so cute that Maddie has missed you that much!
