So it begins! Not only am I training physically for the Ironman, but I am also working on meal and nutrition plans. I am usually a pretty healthy eater, but I also like the occasional treat and glass of wine. I am hoping that entries like this will help me keep track of everything I eat and see where I need to improve.
I will be posting food diaries and recipes for foods I am eating to build up my strength and stay healthy throughout my training. Yes, I will continue to eat my treats (life without chocolate is just plain DULL!) but I will do it in moderation. I will also post things I need to improve on, such as eating a decent breakfast in the morning and taking in more water. I also need to cut WAY back on my Diet Coke consumption. (which I should be doing anyway, but I love it!) Anyway, here are my pre and post workout meals I had today.
Sammi’s It Was Supposed To Be An Omelette With Veggies, Cheese And Meat, But It Is Now Scrambled Eggs:
4 eggs (I use the whole egg but egg whites work just as well. I just can’t operate them without making a mess.)
Handful of Weis Quality chopped spinach
Handful of Weis Quality Pepper and Onion strips
Sprinkling of Weis Quality Shredded Mozzarella
Two slices of prosciutto, broken up into little pieces(I just got whatever one was cheapest in the store. I know it isn’t the healthiest meat, but I can’t stand ham and wanted something less greasy than bacon today.)
Red pepper flakes
Tabanero Hot Sauce
Break all 4 eggs into a dish and mix. Add spices, veggies and meat and continue to mix until blended.
Put mixture into pot and allow to cook halfway before adding cheese.
Attempt to flip into an omelette, but if you are like me, it will just end up being scrambled eggs, so cook until done.
Top with hot sauce as needed.
Post Workout Protein Shake:
8 oz Weis Quality Orange Juice with Calcium
1 scoop French Vanilla Juice Plus Protein Powder
1 cup ice
Blend until smooth.
You can of course use whatever brands you wish, but since I work for Weis and love everything the company stands for, I always try to use their products.
Stay tuned for more on my Ironman adventures! Thanks as always for tuning into Football In High Heels.
