Tuesday Tallies

My occasional answer to the frequently asked questions, "What do you eat?" and "How do you work out?"

Saturday's Food as Fuel

Breakfast: Two eggs over easy with avocado, cottage cheese, and primal chili.

Lunch: Moroccan chicken. Half an apple with almond butter.

Dinner: Bunless hamburger with smoked gouda, sauteed mushrooms and onions, and fresh garden salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Half an ounce of 99% chocolate and coconut cream.

Saturday's Workout: Long day on the farm. 11+ hours of "moving slowly," with occasional lifting of heavy things. Horse training, riding, chores, gardening...

Sunday's Food as Fuel

Breakfast: Moroccan chicken over jicama and carrot "rice."

Lunch: Three eggs scrambled with onion, jalipeno, and spinach, topped with avocado and hot sauce.

Dinner: Harvati rolled in deli roast beef. Salad with sugar snap peas, strawberries, apple, walnuts, and olive oil-cinnamon vinegar dressing.

Sunday's Workout: Even longer day on the farm. All the above, plus rototilling.

Monday's Food as Fuel

Tuesday's Workout: Rest day. Concealed carry class tonight!

Hey Tamara, I'm going primal. Well, low-carb primal first, and I'll add back in good stuff like dark chocolate and coconut milk and fruit in a month or so.

I'm wondering what shoes you ride in? I've been reading a lot of Mark's Daily Apple lately, and his posts about overcushioned shoes really hit home yesterday. I did 20 miles with endurance stirrups and hiking boots and my knees were screaming at the end of the ride. They still hurt today. I think my feet are overpadded! Any thoughts?

WOOHOO!! I'm excited for you -- can't wait to hear how you feel in a couple weeks! :)

I ride in Ariat Terrains. They're comfortable enough to wear all day on the farm, have a bit of a heel for riding (but I used caged endurance stirrups anyway) and aren't all "squishy" like athletic shoes. I'm not sure they'd be terribly different from hiking boots, though, except that I find them much less stiff in the uppers.
