Hump Day Randomness

I've been getting hit with some questions via e-mail asking me about my nutrition. If you've read my blog well enough and know me personally, then you are probably aware of my weekly refeed meals with higher GI sugary carbohydrates. While  others might sit there and be envious of a stack of 10 waffles dripping with syrup, it would be unfair if you never knew the the flip side. The flip side of my nutrition?

6 out of 7 days I am operating within 100% of compliance of my meals, target macronutrients intake, frequency and hydration. I end up eating 7 meals a day, measuring every single thing I eat, and doing endless amounts of food preparation. That might be too much for some but to tell you the truth, I love every minute of it all. I love preparing the food I'm to eat for the day, I look cooking and I love taking care of numero uno.

I wanted to give you a glimpse of some of the things I've been eating and doing around the house. Some of the pictures might be of food preparation or of randomness. Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy some of the comments, pictures, or glimpses into what I do, and how I do.

Whats great about this is that it's low fat and high GI Carb (Perfect for a Skipload). While you may think that there is fat in the butter, rest assure that IT ISN'T BUTTER. That my friend, is Low-Fat Cake Batter Ice Cream. Nothing sounds better than Waffles Soaked in Syrup w/ Ice Cream on Top."][/caption]
