Walk Thoughts #6: food while training

My buffet dinner with Charlie and one upcoming dinner notwithstanding, I'm going to be eating only what's in my fridge for the next little while, then probably relying on a combination of Korean-restaurant food (the good, nutritious kind—not the carby, street-food kind). I've got a mess of veggie leftovers that need to be dealt with, plus four more Ziploc bags of budae-jjigae, plus God-knows-how-much protein and frozen greenery in the freezer. Once I've emptied out what I have in the fridge, the groceries I'll buy—from then until my walk—will all come from downstairs in my building, thus eliminating the need to visit Costco, High Street, Haddon, or any other out-of-the-way places.

The plan will be to make lunch my main meal. I almost never eat breakfast, except on very special occasions, so I'll take in most of my allotted calories at lunchtime. If I get cravings in the evening, I'll munch on things that aren't calorie-dense, like celery or other vegetables. (I saw a nifty recipe for making "rice" out of cauliflower the other day, so that might figure into my diet as well. Cruciferous is splendiferous.) This will help regulate my digestion.

At some point, I'm going to have to switch my training from nighttime to early morning to simulate what I'll actually be doing during my walk. I'm not sure how that will affect my eating habits; that's something I'll have to think about over the coming weeks.
