10 weeks 10 goals - week 9

Last week was pretty good! I did lots of biking and ate pretty well in comparison to last week's huge meals.

The 80km ride has great during, but after we were so beat we took a nap!

To fuel up I made my first batch of Protein Pancakes from this recipe. Only I used two bananas and the whole eggs. I found them to fall apart too easily and I was missing the "heartiness" of a bowl of oatmeal or overnight oats. Perhaps another trial is in order!

During the ride I drank plenty of water, some fruit punch sports drink and some energy gummies. I may try an energy bar next time.

After the ride we wolfed down a tasty C.L.T with homemade coleslaw! (C.L.T. = Chicken Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato).

I think it's time to step up my game! The past few weeks have been a bit "easy". I need to through a big challenge in there!

Week Nine 

Goal #1 - four to five rides one being over 80km
Goal # 2 - I'm going veg for a week! Not too difficult usually, but I need to make sure I'm getting enough protein during training



  1. Well done!;-)
    Plenty water is vital for such activities.xx

  2. Emilie,

    I have struggled over the past two years to eat healthier, work out more and lose 10 stubborn pounds. Whenever I need inspiration for healthy eating and I'm checking out the blogs I follow, I always look at what you are having; it always looks so delicious and healthy!
