Within the past 2 days, when I’ve been running, my left foot has been falling asleep and getting all tingly. At first I thought it was because my new shoe laces were too tight, so tonight I loosened them, but it was still happening.
I talked to my dad about it and he said that maybe I’m retaining water. How does one retain water? They eat ALOT of sodium, and guess what? I eat ALOT of sodium. Monday – Friday, 2 out of 3 of the meals I eat every day are usually frozen meals/processed foods. Processed foods tend to have alot of sodium in them. I eat ALOT of cheese too.
I’ve eaten these processed foods like this every day since I started my weight loss/triathlon journey. I want to cut back on eating so many processed foods, but it scares me. Alot of people say that I should eat more home cooked meals, and I agree, but the thing is, I live at home with my mom and dad and they don’t always tend to eat healthy. I honestly wouldn’t feel comfortable eating what they eat, and that’s why I’ve eaten so many processed foods.
I’m not sure how to go about eating less processed foods. I don’t have time when I get home from work to cook my own meal. I eat lunch and dinner at work so that as soon as I get home from work around 6:00 p.m., I can get right in to my workout.
Do you have any suggestions for me?
