Definitely sounds like a legit workout. What types of foods are you eating?

Wednesday, February 22: Cardio

30 mins cardio, running on the track
Plus some additional workout pulling huge pallets of beer around all day at my job ; )



Thank-you Derek!

And Dylan,
I'm eating clean, whole foods (vegan of course). I love love love my wholegrains, especially quinoa and barley. I'm trying to avoid wheat because I have a minor allergy to it. For proteins I love beans and tofu. I'm trying to get away from the processed faux meats. And lots of veggies! I LOVE marinated kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and spinach in my smoothies. I'm trying to force myself to like leafy, green salads-I've developed a kind of aversion to them since it's the only thing I can eat when I dine out in my town, haha.

However, I have only been eating strictly clean like this for a week now. My diet before was, for the most part, pretty clean. Unfortunately, I have a MAJOR addiction to sugary cereals which I need to stay away from : P

And a question for you Derek, or anyone reading this: What do you guys think of rebounders for cardio? Is the hype true? I get pretty tired out after being on one for more than 20 mins!

From what I've read, rebounders are great! They should burn about as much calories as steady running, and they're fun so go for it. If it feels too easy you should probably step it up by doing something else. Keep training hard, I like what I'm seeing so far and can't wait to see the rest!

Not sure if you are pro or not on trader joes but they are having a quinoa recipe contest, you can check it out on their website. You don't even need to cook just send them the recipe. Just thought you sounded like you maybe as much of a quinoa fan as I am from your earlier posts. I sent in my entry. There are prizes but nothing huge. Let me know if you enter and copy your recipe into a post in this forum too to share with the rest of us if you do.

Cheers,

-Dylan
