So since i am asked all the time about my workouts and nutrition, i thought i would post a typical day for me. Almost everything is raw and everything is vegan.
5-6 am wake up. (no alarm clock needed, maybe get up earlier if i have a very long run or ride, i like to eat a hour before my workouts start, 2 or 3 hours before on very long rides/runs)
Meal #1: Vega pre workout energizer & electrolyte hydrator in a water bottle about 1/2 full of water.
(If i have a very long run or ride in the morning, i add the following ingredients above to more water and add fruit and make a smoothie along with either 1/2 an avocado or a handful of nuts/seeds)
Workout #1: home gym workout ( i have 4 days of gym workouts separated by chest, back, shoulders, arms) takes about a hour, i rotate main muscle group followed by an ab exercise. I don’t do any leg gym workouts because i run and cycle hills.
Fuel during workouts: Water with Vega electrolyte hydrator. (larabars, vega bars, dates, bananas on long rides, long runs i use vega performance gels)
Workout #2: Directly after workout #1. 500 jumping jacks or jump ropes and 500 upper/ middle core & ab exercises. rotating 100 JJ and 100 core/ab, back and forth till i reach 500 of each.
Meal #2: In vitamix - 2 cups of water, 6 ice cubes, Vega chocolate performance protein, 1tbsp chia seeds, 8 dates.
2 hours “rest” before next workout.
Sometimes snacks go here, sometimes not. Snacks would include homemade kale chips, bananas, dates, larabar or vega bar.
Workout #3 cycling or running. Weekly cycling i do 1 long cycle, 1 medium cycle, 1 speed/interval day, 1 hill day. Weekly running i do 1 long run, 1 medium, i short and 1 interval day.
Workout #4 follows cycling or running immediately, Lower ab & core workout.
Meal #3 - In vitamix - 3 cups of water, Vega vanilla performance protein, frozen fruit (usually different combinations of strawberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, blueberries), 1 tbls of chia seeds, blend, yummy.
Afternoon snacks would include homemade kale chips, bananas, dates, apples, oranges, homemade salsa and flax seed crackers, larabar or vega bar.
Meal #4 - Dinner - almost every night i have this. Kale salad, whole head of kale with various raw vegetables and fruits, 1/2 avocado, homemade dressing using braggs apple cider vinegar, tamari, hot pepper flakes, mustard, agave. Toss and top with a handful of nutritional yeast.
I drink 1 kombucha every night after or before dinner.
Nighttime snacks are usually frozen blueberries or frozen grapes. Sometimes i have another chocolate smoothie. Once a week or so i have some pretzels that my fiance always has on hand. Once every few weeks i make popcorn on the stove with very little oil. usually 1/2 tbls will do a whole batch for me.
The only other liquid i drink is water, pretty much sip it all day long. I like water with no ice except for with my dinner cause my salad is spicy.
Usually in bed around 8-9pm, fall asleep around 9-10am.
That’s my typical day, repeat, repeat, repeat…
