tacos and candy

Tonight I went to dinner at a little hole in the wall Mexican place that I had never noticed before! Paco’s Taco’s everyone!


I love finding little treasures like this. I’ve passed this place a million times before and never noticed it! It’s always fun to discover a new place to eat. The same olds are good but they can get old for sure!

Today’s Retreat Tip of the Day is brought to you again by David Johns, Nutritionist/Exercise consultant. 

You want to replace 50% of the calories you’re burning off if you’re running more than 3 miles at a time. One nice way to do this (and to fuel properly DURING your work out) is to eat candy. Yes, he told us to eat candy while we run. It’s a simple carbohydrate that breaks down quickly and gives your body access to instant energy. This will help with those glycogen stores we talked about in a previous post and keeps you from “hitting a wall” during your workouts. 

If you’re like me all you’re going to remember from this is “eat candy while you run”. And you know what? I feel pretty good about that. 

What’s your favorite hole in the wall restaurant?

  1. hiii (i’m new to your blog, which is why i’m commenting on a march post when it’s already april =] ) i was just wondering, and this sounds like a silly question, does it matter which candy you eat if you decide to bring that as fuel on a long run? i’ve always used GUs but i don’t actually like them that much so i’m curious to try the candy approach.

    • Hi! I’m so glad you’re here 🙂 David recommended something like Skittles. So I would think maybe some sort of hard candy, maybe gummies like Swedish Fish? If you’re ok with a sweet, fruity taste while you’re running. Probably not chocolate. I don’t see that going to well. But if you try it and it goes well definitely let me know! 😉 Let me know what you try!
