Howdy my blog-o-thingy friends! How has Wednesday treated you?
If you have been following me on my Tumblr Bloggy Thingamabob you have been kept up to date on how my last two days off have gone. If you have not, you just made me cry a little inside. Do you feel bad? Good! Now go check it out!
Wait! Not yet….finish reading this first. Geez, you’re in such a hurry to leave me.
OK, so here is the deal. I will give you a pass on missing my Tumbler blogs (I’m still crying if you care). But you have to start checking them out.
Here is the short story:
2 days off = Exercise Exercise Exercise and more Exercise with some really super healthy eating.
Now for the in-depth version..
The Plan: Run 5 miles then as fast as possible transition to cycling 50 miles.
What happened: Ran 6 miles and had a slow transition to cycling 40 miles.
The Plan: Run 6 miles then as fast as possible transition to cycling 50 miles
What Happened: Ran 6 miles and had a super slow transition to cycling 36 miles.
Food was the same for both days. Here is what I ate:
A big thanks to Stephanie at My Glorified Journal for my breakfast recipe of Scrambled egg whites, Steamed green beans, and sweet potato with some red pepper. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone about it….it’s her secret figure competition recipe! But holy crap it was good!
Lunch was a whole wheat bow tie pasta with asparagus, carrots, spinach, tomatoes, garlic and a lot of hot sauce. And of course my protein shake….. (there’s a picture on Tumblr)
Dinner was my famous stuffed peppers with shredded chicken and salsa. If you like super hot food use the Hunky Hot peppers, if not, then use your favorite color bell pepper. (there’s a picture on Tumblr……somewhere)
I finished off with some desert. I had some fresh pineapple, a peach and a few hand fulls of shelled peanuts. I’ll share a trick with ya. If you get the peanuts in shells it takes you longer to eat them and allows your body to realize its consuming something, plus they’re cheaper to buy. Therefore, allowing you to eat less! All finished off with another protein shake….
So I didn’t go all low carb on this episode of super healthy days but I did burn a few gazillion calories….and I stayed away from foods like…
So Mike, why didn’t you meet your planned goals? Good question! Well, ya see, ummm…remember my post My Poor Body? Yeah? Well, my neck started to do it’s “I’m gonna F#<% with your life” thing again. I’m learning to deal with most of the pain but it sure does SUCK! The position my bike puts my body in is not very neck pain friendly. So I did what I could without being a total….
Well, back to work tomorrow……
Thanks for stopping by!
