Here’s a little day-in-the-life-of coming at you.

  • 0515: wake up, eat a banana, feed the cats, load gym bag for swim session, chug Vega Pre-Workout Energizer, head to gym
  • 0600: 1200yd swim w/ 12 x 25yd sprints
  • chug Vega Recovery Accelerator on the way home
  • 0700: stretch, chug Vega Protein, take vitamins (multivitamin, creatine, vitamin D) shower, eat breakfast (home made cereal w/ soy milk, chlorella-water to drink), go to change the rear tire on the bike and find the brake is too tight… adjust, fiddle, adjust… run out of time to change the tire
  • 0830: bus to work
  • 0900-1800: work, during which I’ll drink many glasses of water and eat:
    • morning snacks: apple, Nature’s Path Granola Bar, almonds
    • lunch: big salad with ‘goddess’ tahini-based dressing, toasted rye bread with flaxseed oil
    • afternoon snacks: home made muffin, grapefruit, almonds
  • 1845: back at home, change rear tire from race tire to training tire, chug a glass of Cytomax and prep a bike bottle w/ same, gear up, do warm up routine
  • 1930: 45min ride w/ 10 x 20 sec sprints
  • 2015: chug Vega Recovery Accelerator, get distracted by interwebs, stretch, shower
  • 2050: chug Vega Protein, take vitamins (same as above), start dinner cooking
  • 2100: do some dishes while cooking spaghetti w/ tofu, black-eyed peas, adzuki beans, roasted garlic, grape tomatoes, pepper, basil
  • 21:15: scarf dinner (pictured), decide to write this post to give it a chance to digest a bit before sleep
  • 2200: ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz

I’m still struggling to get enough sleep, but getting better. What helps a lot is doing a crapton of cooking on Sunday. This past Sunday that meant:

  • roasting 4 heads of garlic
  • making/baking cereal
  • baking muffins
  • making a massive bowl of salad for lunch for the week (usually romaine and red lettuce, cucumber, mushrooms, sunflower seeds)
  • soaking and cooking the black-eyed peas and adzuki beans (which I’ll be using instead of tofu going forward, I just had some tofu left over from the weekend)

So, yeah, most every day is packed like this, and I’m loving it. Weird.

I’m supposed to be asleep right now… dangit.
