On the real… I am dragging butt this week. My son turned four months old over the weekend and dispatch the TMI police because I need to share that I am having my third menstrual cycle since he was born. My body is pretty much ready to make another baby even though I am done. I am sharing here though because like the first two my energy level has severely dipped. I am hoping extra iron will help but it does feel like little is helping and I am wiped!
With having a kid four months ago my body and life are still in so much fluctuation. I need to food journal to keep an idea of how much I am eating but that is hard since I do not eat very much processed food that has the luxury of food labels and portions. I think I should go the opposite direction and regiment the heck out of a meal plan in terms of meals and snacks for a few days to aim for 2200 calories and see how my body reacts. I also need to regiment taking my vitamins since supplementation is obviously needed these days.
I have a lot of activity and training to go through October and need to be smart since I basically had to start from ground zero at the beginning of June. It is all joyful stuff though. And i am forever grateful for my health and the health of those around me making it easy for me to plan races and training.
My goal this week is to meal plan down to the minutia for 2200 calories/day.
And as I mentioned in the vlog I joined a race committee. I am in charge of post-race nutrition and would love to know what you like to eat after endurance training or racing.
