I am spooning with my bike every night before the century. We feel more connected now and we now know that Saturday is going to be very successful.
As Billy is becoming a hard-core runner and kicking trash and I am thinking that my body is ready to get back into running (um, 3 miles on Monday…booya), we have decided that we need to adjust a few things in our eating. In order for us to become the best athletes that we can be we need to focus in on nutrition along with our workouts.
Now of course we are still going to eat at my parents house often and eat what they are eating and for special occasions we are going to eat out (which will be about once a week, I love celebrating everything:) and you better believe I am still going to visit Yogurtland 5 times a week but something has been missing.
I eat enough fruits and veggies for an army, my protein and fat intake are right where they need to be but both Billy and I are feeling like we are missing out on eating WHOLE GRAINS. Sure we have whole grain bread every now and then but the majority of our carbs come from Apple Jacks and Reese’s pb cups and s’mores bars. I think we might need to tweak that a little bit to consume more whole grains.
PS Junkfood companies do not pay me to daily advertise for them.
We are wanting to buy a variety of different WHOLE GRAINS in bulk (we love being cheap) and just adding them to our normal meals. So, if I am having a salad the size of my niece than I will just add some sort of whole grain to the salad…..if Billy is eating eggs for dinner he will throw in some wild rice or something too.
My question for you is, where do you get YOUR whole grains from? Brown rice, bulgur, millet, wild rice, oats, buckwheat, other sources? Help us out with some good ideas mmkay because we need your help:)

And for another question because heaven forbid I just have one….what size of bed do you have? Do you lie on your back, side or stomach?
-Queen bed and ALWAYS on my stomach, unless I am spooning my bike:)
