In bed last night around 12:30, up at 7:00.
I had another good strength workout today. I was going to run, but the 30 mph winds and 40 degree weather changed my mind.
We had a baby shower with my work people tonight where they provided dinner. I ate a ton.
I am starting to make some plans for the summer training. Right now I am not losing a ton of weight. With all of the strength training though, I am for sure noticing some strength gains and some definition returning, primarily in the chest and shoulders. That was my main goal for the spring (to build muscle). I have been consuming far too many animal products (dairy for the most part). I will finish up with the 90 day lifting program at the end of May. I will then dedicate June to preparing for my Olympic tri. The remainder of the summer will be spent cutting the excess fat, not focusing as much on muscle building. I hope to do a lot of aerobic base training, and building up miles for my fall races. I plan to do an almost exclusively plant-based (vegan) diet, with very little wheat and no sugar. Those are my tentative plans.
