I love food. I tolerate exercise. So, how on earth do I combine the two in the healthiest way? Apparently, I haven’t been doing it right at all.
For example, eating a high calorie, high carb energy bar AFTER my workout and then parking my ass on the couch is a huge FAIL. Makes sense though. My body’s in “go” mode and I’m making it do nothing. Fail #1.
Also, after I came home & showered, I devoured a bagel with cream cheese (light cream cheese, in my defence!). Fail #2. What can I say? I’m a carb whore!!
Anyway, Kyle informed me of my mistakes (Darn him and his BCRPA certified mom!) and now I’m going to try and make a better effort to eat properly after my workouts. I guess giving my body fuel and then not using it isn’t so good. Goodbye carbs! Hello healthy stuff! Maybe I’ll even bust out the blender and start making myself smoothies. I just have to find myself a meal plan I guess.
On a random side note: My laptop is down for 2-3 “business days” :( My USB 2.0 drives stopped working and my camera card reader (more times than not) freezes my computer completely. I’m a little sad about it, but at least we still have Kyle’s desktop PC. And thank Cheesus that my cellphone is uber wicked-awesome and I can catch up on my blogs on there :)
On another random side note: My wedding dress arrived today and I’m picking it up tomorrow. I’m SOOOO excited to get back into it!
Any post-workout munchie tips for me?
