It’s been way too long since I linked up with What I Ate Wednesday, so here we go…..I present a full day of work, eats and training of yesterday, Tuesday. Seems legit, cause these are the main reasons why I get up. Especially for the food, no surprise here.
I prepped some stuff on Monday night – which was actually the first day since my arrival back that I went grocery shopping. You know. I ruined myself on that trip and since I want to be back at Bondi and San Diego asap, I need to save every penny I can get. Saving money by eating less is probably not the ideal way to go, but for the moment it works.
So I made a #strangbutgood breakfast which looks like the ugliest food in tupperware that ever graced the planet. It’s banana and zucchini with cinnamon, vanilla, ricemilk and eggwhites. I SWEAR it’s good. I might cook it next time in the form of pancakes to not shock everyone with food that looks like a general menace.
Next to it lunch. Grilled Asparagus and Chicken tossed in a bowl of greens.
Ok, so let’s look at Tuesday. Alarm Clock goes off at 5:30. Curse, and then meditate. Ideal combo.
Bathroom, get dressed, chug down Preworkout stuff, supplements and hot lemon water. Collect the mess from the floor and stuff it in my huge backpack for a day. My days are long so I just pack everything I might need. You never know.
And nope, I still don’t take any caffeine. Seriously, I can’t take more energy, it’s NOT a good idea.
Heading off to a crazy day. Bike Selfies included. While racing, the goal is to never stop until reaching the destination.
Which means I break several traffic rules along the way. Snot Rockets and spitting chewing gum included. I am such a lady.
I ALWAYS train first thing in the morning and usually do this with the coaches (lucky me), but yesterday my plans changed due to doctors appointments, so I had to go for it by myself a little earlier. I did an Interval Cardio Session (35 minutes, 2 min each station: AirBike, Row, Skiergometer – 30 DU’s before each station) plus Double Under Flight Simulator > (40-35-30-25-20-15-10-5-5-10-15-20-25-30-35-40). Then I practiced skills – Toes to Bar, Handstand Hold, Kipping Pull Ups.
Breakfast: Ugly eggwhite scramble plus Banana Whey Joghurt. Shower and racing downtown for mentioned doctor’s appointment.
Back to work and lunch later. Greed took over and I the salad disappeared in my eagerly awaiting mouth before I could even think about taking a picture. Sarrey. I give you a piece of chocolate though. Scrap that. Two. Two pieces were left and it was an impulsive decision to eat it all in one sitting. Like pretty much all of my decisions.
Warm Up: 100m Row/5 Burpees/200m Row/10 Burpees/300m Row/15 Burpees/400m Row/20 Burpees/500m Row/25 Burpees.
Olympic Lifting Part: Snatch Deadlift / Full Snatch
AMRAP Toes to Bar (yay!)
Home by 10 pm, postworkout Quark with Protein and Almond Butter and a side of supplements.
