DIARY OF A RUNNER
sweatsalty:

I was recently asked this question, so here are my tips:
First and foremost I think the most important thing is to learn to grocery shop. This may seem silly, but it’s very important. I have a lot of grocery lists tagged here. I generally shop the outside rim of the store (produce, dairy, frozen, meats) and stay away from the processed dry and sugary foods.
Learning to properly shop for yourself sets the stage for meal prep (the second most important thing!). Meal prep is really important for a busy schedule: if I don’t have meals prepared, I’ll end up buying bad food. 
Finding recipes and discovering new foods is also an absolute must! There’s some great recipes here.
Examples of meal prep:


You can cook steel cut oats on Sunday and eat it safely for breakfast for the next 1.5 weeks. Read this about breakfast!
You can prep sandwiches or salads or pastas the night before to bring to class.
You can cut up apples (squeeze w a little lemon juice so they don’t turn brown) the night before for snacks, too.
Prepare small bags of almonds and dark chocolate chips ready to throw in your purse.
It totally depends what you like to eat, but for me, my very quick go-to meal is a bowl of pasta. When I cook pasta, it ends up being 40% pasta, 50% veggies and 10% sauce. Cook the pasta, add in frozen veggies (usually petite peas, or spinach, or zucchini), add some sauce (sometimes tomato-based or just EVOO). Then season with kosher salt and pepper. This reheats really well if you invest in some good tupperware (I like this).


I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.

1) Stair Run
You don’t even need the gym for this one! Running up and down stairs is not only good for the gluts but it can also help you to burn calories quick. For my weight, running up and down stairs burns about 150 calories for every 10min. Click hereto calculate how many calories you can burn in a stair run.
2) Sprint Intervals
We all know running tends to burn a lot of calories. But if you throw in sprinting intervals, that’s where the real burn begins. Science shows that sprinting can burn up to 200 calories per 2.5 minutes. So next time you only have 20 minutes to get in your run, think about how much calories you could burn if you did sprint intervals.
3) Jump Rope
Go a little old school on your workout and grab a jump rope. Jump roping at a brisk pace can burn 120 calories+ per 10 min. Click here to calculate how much you could burn in a short period of time.
4) Boxing
Boxing is an intense full body workout. Got a little anger stored up? Punch out your feelings while burning those calories off. Boxing burns around 225 calories for 30 min (based on 130 lbs weight).
5) Swimming
Swimming is already a great cardio workout that is easy on your joints. Rev up the speed & throw in sprinting sets and you got a quick way to burn a lot of calories. Vigorous swimming can burn up to 340 calories per 30 min. So next time you’re trying to cram in a workout, getting wet might not be a bad idea.
