Since my triathlon is on Sunday, Iâ€™m in â€œtaper modeâ€ this week. Iâ€™ve found I perform much better on race day if I take time off before the event, so Iâ€™ve been taking it easy.
I did hit the gym up for a 2.0 mile run (in 19:00) and a 25-minute stationary bike ride. I was planning to ride outside, but Central Florida had the worst thunderstorms today!
While on the bike, I read about 30 pages of this book:
Iâ€™ve been really intrigued by natural birth control methods ever since this post, and Taking Charge of Your Fertility seems like the to-go source for a lot of women. Itâ€™s a good read so far, but I had to stop around page 30 due to huge drawings of vajayjays and boobies, which Iâ€™m guessing my fellow gym go-ers didnâ€™t want to see! :) I promise a review when Iâ€™m done.
My afternoon snacks included 1/2 a melon:
And my serving of dairy for the day â€“ a Greek yogurt.
Before my workout, I had an English muffin with almond butter and sunflower seedsâ€¦ A few extra handfuls of sunflower seeds were consumed in the preparation process! 🙂
And post-workout, I had a nice stir-fry dinner.
I had a serving of brown rice with stir-fried tofu, broccoli, and pineapple in a teriyaki sauce.
Andâ€¦ Iâ€™m off! Letâ€™s hope I can sleep easily tonight. 🙂
