My report from September 1, 2009, faithfully submitted for your review…
Hrs of sleep:
1 cup butternut squash
1 cup cabbage
1 1/2 red bell peppers
3/4 cup snap peas
1 1/2 cups green beans
1 cup strawberries
1/2 cup blueberries
2 rounds of Fight Gone Bad
3-mile run around the lake
This was my first workout since the Vegas debauchery. I was definitely feeling the effects of five days without a workout (ahem!) and way too much Zyr vodka. My Fight Gone Bad performance was just about on par with when I did it in June, I just switched up what sucked and what went well. My wall ball was vastly improved, but then the sumo deadlift high pulls right after were not so bueno. And I’ve got to learn how to get my feet into the rower straps faster. Stupid wide feet!
In between my two workouts, I snarfed a banana with Sunbutter, then hit the trail with Dave. It was an easy run, a.k.a., my monster was, like, “You should stop! You should walk!” the entire time, so I took longer rest breaks than usual. About the only thing I can say about that run is a) I made it all the way around the lake without pooping out, and b) I enjoyed listening to my iPod. Um, yay?
I followed my run with a cup of butternut squash (mixed with a scrambled egg and egg whites) to replace the glycogen in my muscles, and then spread some good veggies throughout the day. It took work! Washing and peeling and chopping and planning. Definitely need to put extra effort into planning my snacks and meals to get enough in. And I’m going to have to take advantage of Erika’s posts at Eat Clean Live Strong and my recipe archive to keep my taste buds from getting bored.
