3 weeks of rest and FOOD

Hmmm...what should I eat next???

Hmmm...what should I eat next???

After Kona i had three weeks to be a non-athlete… no workouts and all the food I wanted. I was so looking forward to this given the length of the 2009 training season. I actually was way more excited about the food than the no workouts. The last time I was off the core diet was when I was diagnosed with the stress fracture back in June. I was so ready to rip it up!!!

My plan was to have some bad food right after I crossed the finish line, but you know how that just never works. I actually waited a few hours, which was a BIG mistake. I actually felt so bad when I sat down for dinner that I could only have two bites of the burger and some fries. My stomach hurt and my teeth were so sensative from all the sugar I had throughout the ironman. Needless to say, I would have to wait until the next day. I actually went to bed starving!

The food fest started at 6 AM the next day when we made a trip to the over priced grocery store in Kona. I believe I spent 40 bucks on cookies, cereal, and chips… ha! I ate the cereal first and then it was all downhill from that moment on. Below is the list of none core foods…drum roll please……..

I may have missed a few things, but that about covers the food. All that added about 5 lbs to this body. I am happy to report I no longer resemble Skelator’s sister ;) As of today it is back on the core with whole grains in the workout window. I have to say it feels good to be back on track with the food. However, ask me in a few months and I will most likely be singing a different tune :)
