I’m about 10 days out from my meet and marathon. I’m exhausted, finishing up training, and hungry all the time. I let that hunger get the better of me over the weekend – I was traveling to support our friends lifting in Ohio, handled another one of our own at a meet in Bridgeville, and by the time I got home Sunday, pretty much just fell asleep. In between, my diet consisted mostly of bites of pizza, fast food, donuts, and some of the best pancakes I’ve ever had.
That’s all well and good, but I do have a general weight goal for next week and eating “junk food” makes me feel pretty crappy, so I’m cleaning things up this week. That meant taking a little bit of time off on Monday to buy groceries and meal prep. Since none of it is really special, I figured I’d lay it all out here.
Misfit Box (a cool CSA type service for produce that looks ugly but tastes good)
Giant Eagle Run
Stuff I always have on hand
What I made:
That makes up my lunches. I do about 4oz of cooked pork and a big scoop of either green beans or the roasted eggplant and tomato. That made 8 meals that I’ll pair with jasmine rice.
For breakfasts, I almost always have either 2 scrambled eggs and rice (if within 3 hours of a training session) OR I spend a little extra time making a hash with honey gold potatoes, bacon, and kale, topped with two eggs.
For an extra meal, I’ll go to the roasted kabocha with steak or salmon. I have apples and lots of almonds and walnuts for snacks. Ready to go.
By the end of this week I’ll hopefully feel back to my normal self and be pretty much ready to go for next weekend’s adventure.
