A few months ago I posted about what I am doing as far as fueling my body for the training I do. I thought I liked what I was doing (as far as the products I was using) but I still felt like something was missing. Then came PhytoSport . This is a plant based sports nutrition line that has a pre, during (hydration) and post workout drinks. FINALLY, what I have been looking for! FYI this is a product from a company I am a consultant for. I love these products and the company and stand behind them 100%. I would never recommend something to my clients that I didn’t use, or that didn’t work for me.
Today went a little something like this: up at 4am for my 5am Kaia class. I fueled with Arbonne Energy Fizz Sticks and the PhytoSport Pre Workout mix. Fizz Sticks for the energy and the PhytoSport as fuel for my workouts. It has carbs, amino acids, vitamins, electrolytes…
Then I went for a Fartlek run…oh…I started my NEW training!! I’ll be running Blood, Sweat & Beers July 26th. I am lucky to have a great friend that wrote me up a training plan. Today was day 2 of my Blood Sweat & Beers training.
BSB Training Plan!
After that I had a recovery shake. Arbonne Chocolate Protein, PhytoSport, and Spinach. Seems like a weird mix (because PhytoSport is mixed berry flavor) but I enjoyed it. The spinach was awesome. Fresh from the farmer’s market.
Yeah, not so pretty looking. But like I said, it tasted great. I don’t know if I have mentioned this on my blog yet, but I have decided for the month of May to cut meat out of my diet. I actually started on April 27th. So today is day 8 of being vegetarian (or pescaterain since I eat fish. Not giving up crab!). I feel like my energy is better, I don’t feel as heavy throughout the day – like when you’re full and you ate too much crap. Not that I was eating crap all the time, but I definitely wasn’t getting enough vegetables. And I am learning to make new, fun veggie dishes. So far so good!

It feels great to get back to my Kaia workouts, back to running – and hopefully back to lifting soon. The flu I had that prevented me from running SLO & OC really kicked my ass. It is surprising it took me so long to recover. But I guess when I think about it, it shouldn’t really be that surprising. Ugh…just happy to be back training! Is anyone out there in the Blog World training for anything exciting?? Tell me about it!
Happy Cinco De Mayo Friends!
