This was an unusual day for me, but eating went well for most of it.
The pancakes fueled me to a fantastically fast finish in my 7k. It was a GREAT time. Immediately after running I had maybe 12 oz water, then circled back to the finish to look for my cousin. My calves were near cramping, but I sucked it up. I was totally unaware that there was food up at race village, or I would have fetched some bananas right away.Once I got two bananas & more water, I felt much better. We gave away our free beer tickets and instead I got some delicious black coffee from Starbucks. MUCH better on a chilly morning!
Back at Diane's we made healthy but protein-less salads (in retrospect I should have brought along some protein), then went bridesmaid dress shopping. By the time we ate supper, I had gone 6 hours with no food, drinking only about 8oz of water. (NOT good. I started getting a serious tension headache while we ate.) We were at a pizza place, but I was able to get a healthy side salad, chicken breast, and spicy broccoli - really a perfect meal. On my drive home, the tension headache got worse and worse.
I stopped at a gas station with a semi-decent deli and bought raw vegetables (tossed the dressing), raw almonds, water, and decaf. Literally the only things I felt confident about in the whole place, besides bananas, but I didn't want any carbs that late at night. The almonds were a 4.5-oz bag, which was *720* calories, but I ate it all anyway. My calories needed to be higher Saturday, after the very low days earlier this week. When I got home I tallied up my calories and decided I needed more yet, and it needed to be protein, so I reheated a pork chop.
Overall, I came in right where I should have:
7a-toaster pancakes (2T tahini, egg, 1/4c applesauce, & t cinnamon - topped with another 1/4c applesauce), 2c regular coffee, FiberSmart, fish oil
11a-2 bananas, 20oz regular coffee

930p-4oz pork chop
1a-T tahini, .5oz organic lemon energy square (technically should be on Sunday, I guess)
