ORN: Cross trained yesterday. Got in about 60 minutes on the bicycle. I was supposed to run last night but training was canceled because of the heat index.
I went to a nutrition for athletes seminar last night. These always make me a little nervous because there are so many opinions and so few absolutes. I'm sure certified dieticians know a lot more than I do, but, I still think - for most of us - it comes down to how much we eat, not what we eat.
My own formula is pretty simple. Find a way of eating that you can sustain for the rest of your life. Find a level of activity that you can sustain for the rest of your life. And be done with it.
Beyond being healthy and fit everything else is ego. I've got round shoulders and relatively short legs [I'm LONG waisted] I'm never going to have the "ideal" body for anything except watching television. So be it.
If you can do what you want to do in the body that you have, you're all set. If you want to loose a few pounds, cut your serving portions. Simple.
Being fit and active should be fun. Let it be.
Waddle on, friends.
