I guess that works. Maybe I should say back on the bike? My 12 week training plan for Lycra and Lace starts next Tuesday. I haven’t had a real training plan in months so I’m looking forward to a little structure. After marathon training I was kinda burned out. I was hating my job and just tired. So, I stopped training for anything specific and just started working out. Mainly, Orange Theory 3x a week. I love it. However, I’ve finally got my running/triathlon mojo back!
I credit Orange Theory for this (and carb cycling) because I’m done about 12lbs and I’m feeling strong. Now I want to incorporate the sports I love back into things. I’m still dealing with some stomach worries but I’m working on listening to my body. At doctors orders I’m slowing working things back into my diet to rule out any food allergies or anything like that (super fun here kids). Since my In-laws were here for the week we moved and my parents were here all last week I threw my diet to the wind and enjoyed showing them some awesome Tampa food stops (and discovered a few) and just enjoyed myself. No weight change (woot woot)! Now, that I am done entertaining and being the hostess with the mostest it is time to get things back on track. I’m going to try the carb cycling again because I think it works well for me but I’m going to try doing it with some meat-free options in addition to the turkey/chicken. I’m also cutting WAY back on the eggs but not cutting them out. Apparently, eggs can seriously mess with your gallbladder (who knew).
I’ve started using my Passion Planner (more on that soon) and I love it! I was a little lost with goals and such and it has helped me. Like my 2016 goal of finally completing a 70.3! I’ve started working with Tri Equal (more on that later) and things are just getting back to where they should be! FINALLY!
