no problem, rob.

 

monday:

I broke today.

Still dealing with losing a couple of people. Then my heart shattered in a million pieces, I put it back together and it broke again a couple times. Then kryptonite guy popped back up on my radar. Then my taxes wouldn't print. Last straw.

 

workout:

30 elliptical, 50 or 55 mins running, superset bis and tris on stability platform. didn't wanna be there. did it. skipped out of there smiling and drenched with sweat.

 

food:

started out decent, ended decent, infused with crazy massive insane carbs including fruit. made myself sick.

 

conclusion:

i'm gonna be ok. it's gonna be ok. everything is alright and i can handle it all just fine. start fresh and right tomorrow. realize that sticking to the plan makes me stronger.

Tasha, that's so true. Along with that is how great it is to plan a good hard workout to help process what's going on in your life. Thanks for the reminder.

 

You're right Rob, everything will be alright. You're so right. Everything is as it should be. Also, for some reason my all tank tops are disappearing. We do need to meet up soon!

 

Everything is gonna be ok. One day is 'acceptable', but don't let that turn into two days, then three days. Get back on it WOMAN!
Thanks for this. Reading it really got me right back on track. Even when we're weak, we're strong.

thank you, oatmeal czar

 

E got me thinking about complete proteins and amino acid combining the other day . I haven't really bothered to think about it for years, but it's probably time to reassess. For now, i'm really gonna try and eat more diverse proteins.

 

I really like running and stuff. I want to do it more and better. My issue with that is gonna be how to fuel myself. I've noticed that when I'm at work, I'm really likely to eat carbs not consciously. My thought process is something like, omg, challenge here, need carbs to fuel the thinking/activity needs. When i'm not at work this hardly ever happens, only once in a while with popcorn but i think that's a pure fuel issue mostly. in 6 or 7 weeks, all will be easy, but for now, i shouldprobably come up with a new meal plan. Now to just find the time to do that.

I'm gonna eat some oatmeal today in your honor.

 

@MS how much carbs do you eat per day? I agree about whole food carbs... i just have to get myself to switch gears. What do you eat pre and post workout?

 

@Lobster yeah, i eat them plain. they're pretty bitter, but yummy and crunchy. it's probably a food a lot of people would say is an acquired taste.

 

Tuesday:

Bike commute only, I really surprised myself. After work, went for a ride to soak up some sun, into a little headwind, almost decided not to go up this big ass hill that I think used to give me a little trouble. I cut over that hill like butter. I'm back.

I think this improvement's from training my legs and core, could be just cuz i've been getting better sleep.

 

Food:

coffee, soy

ginger, kale, celery, 1 tsp miso, 1 tbs flax, h2o smoothie

scoop of vega, h2o

some snow pea pods

a couple pieces of bread

some green beans & a veg sausage, with a couple pieces of bread

felt an appetite coming on, got a coffee, dumped it all over the place

ended up eating more bread

a lunabar and more bread

salad greens and a lunabar

Stupid stupid STUPID day at work today and i don't mean that in any kind of hyphy sense of the word. I considered not going to the gym, but then I realized i had all this loose energy running through me even though I was so ridiculously tired so i jacked myself up on some serious caff and worked out for starting at 7 pm. I know the stress and caffeine was awful for me but the workout was kick ass and i really needed to run. Running helped clear my mind but what rly helped was lifting weights on the stability platform... maybe cause I already ran off so much of that energy, but the calming focus of it all was very mr miagi.

I don't track how many carbs I eat so I have no idea but I can try to track it for you for a few days and let you know. I don't follow a very regimented diet. I eat different meals all the time as I love to cook and crave different tastes all the time. I am thinking about posting my food in my training log but haven't done it yet. maybe soon. But if i had to say a guess a day would be

 

meal 1 - VEGA WFO - Mixed with Hemp Milk and Coconut Water - Depending on if I had an AM workout I may mix in a banana and some berries

 

meal 2 usually a Larabar, Suncake, Energy Bar I make from the Thrive Diet Book,

 

meal 3 - Tempeh & Veggies or leftovers from dinner usually veggies with some protein source, Quinoa, tofu, beans, lentils varies daily

 

meal 4 - usually a larabar, suncake, energy bar, VEGA Smoothie infusion with fruit, Granola,

 

meal 5 - veggie and a protein source varies daily

 

Hope that was helpful?

@ lobsterific, yeah thanks, I was thinking the whole time as I was psyching myself up to workout this is when injurues happen, lose the anger and focus. idk if i lost the anger, but at least i didn't get injured, haha just a little sore.

 

@ MaryStella omg yes that helps a lot. thanks. i really admire your training and dedication and knowledge, and seeing a sample of your day's food is great for me. at this point, i'm still experimenting with what i need and where i need to go with my diet if i keep running. since i've never really ran before, this is all new to me.
