So you know how I'm running the Horsetooth Half Marathon in the foothills west of Ft. Collins, CO on Sunday? Well in true Colorado fashion, we are supposed to get a major winter storm today and tomorrow. My question is, even if it's not snowing on Sunday - what if there is a foot of snow on the ground? Surely the race will be cancelled. This race is already a monster that adding a foot of snow on the ground would make it that much more insane. Have you ever had a race cancelled for weather? Should I just pull out the Yak Trax?
In an effort to keep refueling and to stay fit, I've been changing my eating habits a bit. Now everything that I eat, I view as fuel and energy. I am not abstaining for anything in particular, but am asking the question "how will this make me feel after I eat it" first. My body is very sensitive to food - too much dairy or fat will send me racing for the bathroom or just make me feel like crap for awhile. So yesterday, here's what things looked like for me - some of you might cringe with how not healthful this is, but so be it (oh and I can't/won't take pictures of everything I eat like some of you. First of all, my food never looks as good as yours, second I am just happy to get this blog out in it's most primal form; can't imagine taking and loading all those pics, but I'm impressed!)
Breakfast: 2 Kashi strawberry flax waffles with almond butter
Mid-morning snack: Tall latte
Lunch: Tortilla with hummus, spinach, carrots, applewood smoked cheddar; cantaloupe
Snack: Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich
Dinner: Another tortilla - same as lunch but with turkey; apple (small dinner cause I had a meeting)
Snack while watching the Office: popcorn, jelly bellies, wine
Don't you love how I end my day?? Jelly beans and wine. So much for fuel. I laugh at myself. Things went downhill from the flax waffles. Everything in moderation, right? I moderately at handfuls of jelly beans and moderately drank some wine.
What fuels you the most? I just eat what sounds good for the moment. Not the most precise plan.
