I have goals to set and achieve--and oh yeah, some fun to have too. Are you ready?
- Ride in the 30 degree weather outside with Craig, a member of the Brazen Dropouts team
- Pump some lead at the Nat
- Take a short swim to break in the muscles
- Practice some cross manuvers
- Build up Brian Smiths Javelin cross bike
- Ride with Paul Neilson and (hopefully) others from Brazen Dropouts team
- Get a pair of cross wheels, tires, and Crank Bros Candy eggbeater pedals from Paul
- PRACTICE THAT CROSS DISMOUNT!
- Snag a ride with Kristen Wentworth to the Cross race in Sun Prarie
- Keep warm before the race
- Have some fun in the Jouniors 18- race
- Kick some serious cross-ass in the Mens B race
- Wipe the mud off my face after taking a dig trying to bunnyhop the barriers
- Take tons of pictures of A riders eating mud on the course
- Pose for the sponsors--oh yeah, you know it!
You know, other than that, its time for the EATING FOR PERFORMANCE plan:
GOAL--Reach 8% or lower Body Fat % by January 30th, 2006
- Eat several small meals per day, around 5
- NO Icecream, yogurt parfaits (my favorie), or coffee creamer
- Eat oatmeal and hard boiled eggs for breakfast, or egg whites
- Salads for lunch, with organic salad dressing
- Eat fruit or vegtables for snacks, like apples, carrots, watermelon, etc.
- Use low-calorie protein shakes mid-day if I can't eat a decent snack
- Exercise in some way for 90min, every day, even if its really cold outside
- Pump that lead, high reps and low weight
BOOM! I'm loosing 1 lb of body fat/week for the next 10 weeks. I gain 5 lbs of muscle mass. A net weight loss of 5 lbs would put me at 6'1'', 168lbs lean and strong!
Now I just need to post these guidelines all over my room so I don't feel like straying from them, say, tommorow night. Constant reminders will get the job done--I'm determined! If I want to go to the next level with my racing, I have to start fueling my body with just what it needs.
Bring it on! I can't wait for the cross race on Sunday, it should be a blast.
Picutes are to come later of the cross bike, after she's built up of course.
