Had some serious energy issues lately with low blood sugar. I have decided to drop out the protein powder as I don't think it is a good energy food. Going to try adding in nuts and more lentils instead as I think they are better for energy levels and I will use that for protein sources. I think the problem is the quality of my powder. I went back to using Trueprotein.com and I think the nutrients in their product are very low. However, the hight quality stuff, I love that Warrior Food, is just so darn expensive. Been out of the gym for three days feeling lousy. Headed back to hit it hard tomorrow.

yesterday was routine training. Good training, good endurance. Trying to get that endurance level up for routine work. Moving routine up to 3x per week and 3x/wk of weight training. Cut out that protein powder the last 2 days. Feeling much better as of today. I am going to stick with only whole foods for the rest of the week and see how I feel as a result. Yesterday food was:

1c oatmeal/banana
salad of romaine/broccoli/flax/balsamic
mid morn apple 1oz almonds
lunch green beans, lentils, sweet potato
mid aft apple 1 oz almonds
dinner romaine/broccoli/avocado/flax oil/balsamic

Decided to focus on cardio and routine training for a while to get back into show shape. Hitting up some hard core spin classes 75-90 min spin. Routine Mon, Wed, Fri, Spin Tues/Sun. Run on Thursday.
Food today was: pre-workout oatmeal
post-workout lettuce/brocc/spinach/flax oil/balsamic vin
mid morn apple/almonds
lunch sweet potato/gr beans
mid aft apple/almonds
dinner sw pot, salad w/brocc/lettuce/spinach/flax oil/balsamic vinegar

I quit protein powder entirely and I feel so much better. Huge difference in how I feel, energy levels and training ability. Whole foods only.

Hi Paige, I just found your training journal here. I've been doing the protein powder too. Way too much and after this week I'm going for more whole foods as well. Thanks for posting your food and workouts here. It'll be great to follow your progress.

I'm going for my sixpack abs! Funny, at age 52, but what's age got to do with it? LOL! :lol:
