1/18

coffee
---1 hr trainer ride: 4x5 min int inc diff
larabar
---2 mile run
apple, chia/protein powder, 2 tortillas
2 tortillas
4 papadams
100 cal oat w/ scoop of protein powder
---1 hr trainer ride: 8x3 min int of standing sprint

i think the hi pro cereal will be a good sub for luna bars although i guess it doesnt have as many b vits. maybe it can be a stepping stone to finally breaking this hideous habit.

wow, two trainer sessions in one day? that's hardcore!

Do you put anything on your tortillas or do you just eat them plain?

i usually heat them up so they get yummy, and sometimes i sprinkle cabbage, lettuce, or parsley in them, and very rarely earth balance or tofu mayo. that sounds gross! but it is good.

i'm really into papadums lately, low calorie, good protein, salty, and crispy! super yummy.

1/19

1 hr+ trainer ride lvl 10 race, hard
bench press 2x20x45 1x20x55 2x10x65 taped afterwards
commute

diet was awesome except for cookie dough i broke for because i messed up and didnt eat till late afternoon

random thoughts:
this carb thing doesn't seem to agree with me at the mo. i need more protein.
i cant wait so long to eat in the afternoon.
if it's time for a rest day, i need to take it, otherwise my training gets wishy washy and i'm just wasting my time. if i'm trying to wait for some kind of scheduling thing, then i need to go hard if i'm going to train at all, otherwise, rest and take that extra day.

I definitely agree, if you need the extra rest then it's better to take it and come recovered and strong.

i guess i'll call today a rest day. the whole sunday got away from me. got to keep that from happening again

1/22
coffee
oatmeal w raisins, walnuts, hemp
.5 hr spin bike, no burn, 95-100 rpm, arrow bars
bench: 45x20, 2x55x20, 3x65x6
chia/protein/agave pudding, sunflower seeds
accidentally drank a little sugar soda, it's all natural though

next possibility for rest day is friday. i think i should take it and re-set my rest days for then. we'll see how it goes. depending on the weather, if i can get into the gym early this week, i'll start training legs a little. the weather this past week has really messed with my bike hours. i'm going to need to re-think my attack plan if it doesn't change. i just hate sitting on the trainer. sometimes my best gear just doesn't cut it. i'll try to be braver.

Ha! No. No it definitely is not.

1/24
coffee
oameal, raisins, hemp
a few more raisins and some walnuts

20 minute tread walk forward
5 minute tread walk backward
3xcircuit: 20 single leg lunges, 50 weighted crunches, 20 db pullovers: increase all weights each circuit
3xcircuit: 20 quad ext, 20 ham curls, 10 wide pull downs
seated leg press 4x20 x235
some smith thing 2x20x200
1 hour easy fast light flush spin, 1/2 in the arrows

lunabar, 3 squares of chocolate
tofu, yeast, tomato, chard
fake salami
nuked frozen peaches w/stevia
chia/protein pudding if i get hungry later doing this late night of work

i tried to go light on the leg weights, but it felt weird, and i know that i dont have much time left before racing to bulk up the legs, so i went heavier. pleased to find how heavy i could go. i could have gone higher on the circuits/lunges, but if the weather cooperates tomorrow i'm riding so i didn't want to torch them too much. i could see my calves twitching between sets.
