She took the time to learn about me before suggesting a meal plan. She seemed unfazed by the 5am to 630 am gym time at least three days a week, I figured that when I explained what I do for a living that would give her some problems, it did not. Once I told her about my life and my diet I was put in my place, when she told me "Your diet isn't bad but it is laking, I'm going to make you a meal plan that will help you on and off the bike" I couldn't help but smile.
The first thing she tackled was my "breakfast" before going to the gym. I was having a greek yogurt and going to the gym, I will now have a glass of chocolate almond milk with my greek yogurt. The good fat will help while training and my blood sugar will not spike before working out. The rest of the day I was told that I needed a lot more carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables, and fiber. I need to add color to my meals, the pasta is great but needs color such as spinach, kale, and or peppers. I need to focus on eating a lot legumes and grains. I was averaging around 45 carbs per meal, I now need to get that number to at least 60, that will help my blood sugar stay stable and help in recovery after workouts.
I love that I have a new meal plan, I got lazy and needed help. I found the help that I needed, I'm equipped with a great meal plan and training plan. I'm putting the work in and I have a feeling it will pay off when I start racing in the spring.
