I have now been on a strict workout regiment for the last 2 weeks. I have been very consistent. I have been lifting 3-4 times a week and doing cardio on most of the other days. When I am at home in Phoenix I generally either run or go mountain biking with the occasional road bike ride. I find doing cardio at the gym extremely boring and only do it as a last resort. My wife OperationMeltdown has been finding a lot of new healthy meal ideas on the internet that actually taste very good. You can find some of those recipes on her website. The biggest problem for me is that I eat a lot. Training for Ironman only made it even worse because I could eat any thing I wanted and not gain a pound. After about a week and a half my appetite has come down a bit so it has been better. So far I have lost about 4lbs in 2.5 weeks.
I found out today that I won a free coconut water contest from RunEatRepeat. I love coconut water. It is the perfect electrolyte drink. It is low in calories and all natural. One thing I hate about so many sports drinks is all the artificial ingredients. Some other great brands without artificial ingredients are Hammer Nutrition and Honey Stinger. You must try the Stinger Waffles!
This was actually pretty good. It is not going to fill you up but not bad. You think my fish would like this? LOL Time to relax goodnight.
