I am going to finish out this daily listing, then next week I'll switch to a week in review - mostly because its too much to get on and blog every day and probably too much for you to read!!
Here is a recap of the weekend and our diet experiment:
Preworkout shake: protein/workout optimzer
Rode bike for 55 mins on the trainer while I watched Oprah's show about the movie "Food Inc"
Breakfast: Smoothie - soy milk, protein powder, greens, berries
snack: soy latte
Lunch: ground beef, salsa, cheese
Snack: trail mix - I ate my weight of this...too much and I felt sick. But it was GOOD - pecans, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, dried apricots and dates
Dinner: Kale, beets, goat cheese and chicken. yum.
Rest day from working out. We spent the day driving too and from the Grand Opening of the Max Muscle in Bellvue. Long day on the road.
Breakfast: Soy smoothie
Snack: soy latter, hard boiled egg, cantaloupe
Lunch: Red Robin Cobb Salad
Snack: more of the trail mix from yesterday, but not too much/veggies, cheese
Dinner: Grilled Chicken and coleslaw from KFC
Snack: small soy smoothie
Long run day....15 miles....
I was apprehensive about this, to change all that we changed....it turned out okay. My quads have been really sore this week and I felt them on every step. But I made it the entire way.
Prerun: Protein/fullblown extreme/some carbs (about half what I usually use)
During the run: 1 hammer gel at the 2 hour mark. I would usually take 2 during a run this long.
After: protein powder/blueberries, followed by a soy latte
Breakfast: Eggs and strawberries
Snack: trail mix (I need to find an alternative to this!)
Lunch: spinach salad with walnuts, goat cheese and chicken.
Dinner: Salad with steak, salsa, cheese, avacado and sour cream.
Snack: soy smoothie
Whew. made it through a week. I am hungry alot, so I have been eating every two hours. I remember hearing that it will take about two or three weeks for my body to adjust. I am anxious to see if that is true....stay tuned...
