Day 2: keep going!

Posted on

I’m going to run a day behind in reporting so I can get some sleep, in addition to logging & blogging.

My food plan is simple. If I’m hungry, eat protein & fat. Eat leafy greens. Read labels; count carbs.  Fruit/juice only during or immediately after intense exercise. I was reading my new favorite book last night – Dr Maffetone’s Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing.  He suggests stripping out sugars and refined carbs from your diet to improve your athletic performance. I feel encouraged by this advice. I was feeling a little worried that the way I eat would detract from my training and racing.  It looks like the opposite is true.

Day 1/45
weight: 161.0
food: going very well so far.
moves: ran 50 minutes. On tired legs, but I kept moving.
energy: good.

So Monday’s numbers were

kcals 1,489
Fat g 114.5
Carbohydrate g 43.0
Dietary Fiber g 12.4
Protein g 79.5

I want to eat more protein than this, but I was not hungry so I didn’t eat.

Ingredient list:

scrambled eggs (made with cream) & bacon, green tea.
black coffee. didn’t finish it.
tenderloin, broccoli, cauliflower and sliced carrots, lots of lettuce
slice of cheese and some macadamia nuts
(post run) sweet potato (boiled)
tomato sauce and meatballs, 1/4 c pumpkin (boiled)
green tea

See for yourself.  Link to Fitday.  I might just put this link in a side-bar widget so I can write about more interesting things than what I put into my mouth.
