Day Seventy Seven

Saturday, November 23, 2013

Felt good to get in a halfway decent ride this morning.  Not too taxing, just a loop around the valley for two and a half hours, no real climbing.  It was hard work though – not enough carbs in the system?   You’d think yesterday’s mango cheesecake and calzones would have topped me off.

Here’s what I ate today:

  • Breakfast
    • Spicy Lentil Dahl
    • Sauteed spinach and kale
  • Lunch:
    • Green Smoothie (post ride) – Spinach, Kale, Strawberries, Blackberries, Hemp Protein Powder
    • Curried Tofu, roasted carrots and squash, brown rice
    • Grapefruit Juice
  • Snack:
    • Apple and Peanut Butter
    • Pretzels and Hummus
  • Dinner (Birthday Party):
    • Quinoa and Arugula Salad
    • Potato Salad
    • 3 Beers
    • A bunch of sugar – brownies, cookies, a cupcake

A sugar binge day, for sure.  We shall see how that works  out in 48 hours or so.  I do like what the slo carb week was doing.  This is not a sustainable diet, not when training seriously for endurance sports, you have to pour in more carbs.  But for short term course correction and trimming stubborn fat I think it has real potential.  I also think it’s going to be very difficult to do at dinner and not have the rest of my family move out on me, so there will be some compromising next week.  A bit like the first week – hard core for breakfast and lunch, but with some added carbs in the evening.  I still think I can get some good results.
