This is where i start to feel a bit like a machine

OK the cold weather is already having an effect on my training hours as well as my eating habits so in order to (try to) keep it all in check I'm starting to track my calories on a site called calorie count. Its a great FREE site that has a data base of all the different foods you can imagine and their nutritional qualities, although it makes for scary reading if you actually add up your daily intake.

For instance i was doing well until i added in the greasy cooked breakfast i had this morning at the skyline Diner on queen st! that just added about another 1500 cal. and the mid ride latte and muffin was about another 700 cal. Oh well.... i finished the day off with a post ride protein fruit smoothie and a steamed veg and salmon diner made at home.

You know after i figured out i had better get my act together.

Anyway it tracks it all along with totals of protein, fats and carbs, and give you a grade for the day and a running total for the week.

But as much as anything its a reminder to, KEEP THAT FECKIN EATING IN CHECK!!!!

i reckon is i start posting it up here it'll help motivate me to hold it all together, along with the move to cut out sugar after 6pm and no food after 9pm (when I can, school night can be hard)

oh well lets see how it goes

todays ride was 1hr44m with a warm up/down and a 1hr E2 interval and approx 2500cal burnt

total food intake was approx. 3300cal

my daily intake without training should be around 2500cal.

this is were i start to feel a bit like a machine ( and I don't even have my powertap back yet)
