so it’s 5:54 am here and I’m just typing a quick note

been up since 4:45, got up, got a power smoothie into me:

  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • scoop non-dairy protein powder
  • 1/2 banana
  • 2 cps kale
  • cilantro
  • peeled and chopped apple

the problem with meeting the trainer at 6:30 is that i need to have finished my smoothie a full hour before I go work out, otherwise I’m likely to vomit during a hard work out

anyway, i’m off, a little tired, but off

  1. I just stopped eating before workouts. Part of it was that I had to eat 2 hours before exercise, anyway–to digest enough not to wanna barf or get reflux when I was upside down in Pilates or crunched up–part of it was reading how you burn more fat if all you have is coffee or green tea prior to exercising (and water, natch, for hydration). So, I do that now. Just do fasting workouts and eat after an hour (ditto for fat burn). At my age, I’ll take any minimal fat burn advantage I can. ; )

    If you find it a pain to eat before a workout, try a couple of fasting workouts (just something with caffeine, no foods or cream or sugar, etc), and see if you get through it with ease.
