I also finally figured out how to tie in my workout schedule with my diet that gives me energy and keeps the hunger demons away. Since I am working out before and after work every single day, this is what my routine looks like:
6:00-6:30: Wake up, AM workout.
Breakfast: Large Belgian Waffle with Maple Syrup. Whenever I make waffles, I make an extra 8 and freeze them. They last a good two weeks in the freezer. I find the waffle and syrup get glycogen back into my muscles quickly.
|I usually don't have whipped cream and strawberries on top....|
|I make this in the morning while I am eating my waffle. Then wrap in tin foil and place in an insulated lunch bag. It stays pretty warm for three hours!|
5:00:-5:30: two small bowls of cereal and an orange. This fuels my PM workout.
6:30-7:00: Start my PM workout, usually its an hour or two depending on if I am doing strength and how much
Dinner: Its been an omelette and a couple oranges and few
Of course the above is for Monday thru Friday. The weekend is a total crapshoot of stuffing my face with food and booze and running and biking many many many miles.
So this only took 6 weeks to figure out!! I have found that cooking a week's worth of lunches ahead of time has literally saved me, since that is the most complex meal of the day. Otherwise making egg based dishes is always super quick.
Yay planning ahead!
