On the go...

The last 2 days have been ON THE GO!!! Yesterday I was planning on sleeping in a bit (since I had the chance) but instead was woken by none other than Walter, Marcus' saint bernard dog (picture to right). He is the cutest thing in the world, but his bark is SO loud.

It wasn't a bad thing though. I got up and got on with my productive day a bit earlier than expected.

Thursday 9/10/09
Run easy 40 min - about 5.5 miles
20 min of Yoga and Stretching (feels SOOOOO good!)

Food Intake:
8am - Banana
9:30am - 1 egg + 1 egg white omelette with veggies, 1/2 avocado, salsa and 5 pcs of cantaloupe
11-3:30 - no real meals...just snacked on the following - 2 handfuls almonds, peach, frozen grapes, 2 pieces of turkey jerky
5:30pm - Chicken, peppers, water chestnuts, bamboo, broccoli, red onions, raisins
7:30pm - CHEAT MEAL (every Thursday night we go to the BEST frozen yogurt shop ever!!!) Jon and Bon's (small caffe latte with peanut butter cups on top)

Friday 9/11/09
*Mountain Bike Middle Trail - 1:03:12 (semi technical single track...really rocky!!!)
Torso Rotations

Food Intake:
7:00am - Banana
8:30am - Asian Pear
11:00am - 2 eggs scrambled with broccoli, onions, chicken sausage, 1/2 avocado, salsa
12:30pm - Handful almonds, turkey jerky, peach, chicken with peppers

Overall the last 2 days have been great for workouts, but my nutrition hasn't been exactly up to par. It's not been horrible. But I haven't been eating enough in the mornings. My workouts are in the mornings, so I should have quite a bit of calories post-workout to refuel and because post workout is when our bodies are most efficient at burning calories (therefore, we don't story food as fat).
I have been going non-stop both days and haven't planned properly for food. I haven't had stuff easily accessible to just grab. That's a BIG MISTAKE!!! So...lesson learned hopefully!
