Change in schedule today! Picked up the kids from school. They were hungry so we grab something to eat. I forgot to order something and played cleanup on whatever they didn’t eat. Then time for homework and building a couple cars for them to sit in at their Awanas Class tonight. They were having a drive-in theater where they sit in their box cars and watch a movie. We had fun making them!

Got in some time on the Falco V just as the sun was going down. That felt nice. Got a little dark at the end 🙂 Finished up in time to get asked out for Sushi. I Love Sushi! I didn’t eat enough at dinner though. Should have gone for some sashimi. Oh well, peanut butter and almond protein works too!

Friday, October 17, 2014 through Monday, October 20, 2014
Going to pretend that for training purposes this weekend never happened. Personally, it was one of the best weekends ever. Cousin’s Wedding and a Zac Brown Concert – Great people, amazing food, and fun entertainment. As far as taking any steps towards my fitness? Well I did get my workouts in and consumed all of my supplements and even got in a little pool work (see supplement and workout info below), but seeing as I started the weekend at 170 pounds on Thursday and weighed in at 180 pounds this evening at 10PM. I am a bit disturbed on how I could have gained 10 pounds in that short of time. Just gonna go out on a limb and say that what I ate over this weekend was not what I needed to be eating. High sodium and sugar and milk fat content will get me every time. I did drink a bunch of water though so hoping that I am just really hydrated as well 😉 Well now that I am back home, its time to get serious again. No more Recovery Weeks for a while!

Breakfast: Chocolate Shakeology with Beachbody Vanilla Whey2 – Slimming Formula, 2 – Cordastra, and 2 – Super Suma and Coffee

Today was a getting it done day! Spent a little time on the Falco V. Worked on relaxing the upper body, relaxing the face, and breathing efficiently. I found myself settling into a rhythm and working against the wind. Getting the head down and finding the relaxation in the movement was fun! Looking forward to getting back on the bike tomorrow!

Project New Year – Day 16 and 17 – P90X2 Triathlon Training

The past couple of days have been really good. Not saying the days before weren’t as good, just saying, the past couple of days have been pretty good. The kiddos are awesome! They’re having good days at school, working hard on homework, and honestly trying to tolerate each other at this point. Sibling relationships are interesting to say the least. 🙂 …. Workout-wise I was able to get in a good bike ride and X2 Yoga yesterday and a swim and Mobility workout today. Feeling great right now. Lungs have been a little tight from yesterday’s dust storm but the inhaler helps that. One thing about having asthma in this valley is you learn to have your inhaler handy around this time of year. The weather is getting cooler. Hoping that we get some rain here in California. The Valley after a good rain is an amazing place to be. It really is beautiful. But right now we need a bunch of rain, and I mean a bunch! Looking to get a bike ride in tomorrow at some point 🙂 Can’t hook up with the regular 11:20 ride guys tomorrow though, nope, I get to be the secret reader in Davis’ class! I am going to read “Where the Wild Things Are” and then maybe another book. We’ll see how fast it reads 🙂 Pretty excited to get to do this!

Project New Year – Day 13, 14, and 15 – P90X2 Triathlon Training

It looks like the weekend is where I need to put in the extra work on my nutrition. Pretty ugly. The double batch of Rice Krispie Treats from my Mom didn’t help. They are quite honestly the best I have ever had….my weakness. Sugary Carbs. The problem is, unless I am riding my bike, those surgery carbs leave me feeling like crap. No good. Here is my accountability for the past 3 days.

Dang Rice Krispie Treats! After this weekend and with the week ahead I decided to mix in a Recovery Week for P90X2. I can work in some rides and swims this week during the day and then do Recovery + Mobility or X2 Yoga at night. The big thing is getting back on the bike. Last week I pushed it a little hard and felt it in my back. Hoping the Yoga this week helps keep that loose. Getting some miles in right now is what is important. Looking forward to tomorrow!
