eating good and staying flexible... more photos.

First things first. I am so happy that the Baseball season is underway. I know it's only spring training, but I am stoked for the 2007 Padres season. They made a lot of moves which I think has made the team better. I watched the first televised game of the year Tuesday night and it was great. During the season 150 of the 162 games are televised. No more crappy TV!

I am having more fun posting on my blog now that I started adding photos. It defintely makes it more interesting to go back and read older posts. So I have some more photos in this one.

This week has been busy so far and I think it's going to stay that way. I am in my second to last build week and from a training perspective things are great. I had a ride on Tuesday afternoon and felt incredible. It was 80 degress and sunny. No arm warmers, no knee warmers, and coming of the a recovery week I felt really strong and just wanted to hammer.

I had to go into work Tuesday night and didn't end getting home until just after midnight. Needless to say I decided it was probably a bad idea to get up at 4:45am for a Masters swim. I decied to sleep in a bit and then head out on my MTB for 1:15 spin on the trails. It felt good but my rear derailler started giving me some problems. I need to work on that tonight. After the ride I worked from home for a bit before heading into the office. It's awesome to have that flexibility.

working from home is killer.

Ok. Now for some more photos of food. A lot of people ask me questions about my diet, especially all the guys at work. They see me eating breakfast and lunch at my desk and always denying their invitations to go grab some lunch at various fast food places around work. Even with my busy schedule I cook myself dinner everynight. I am not really a fan of eating out. It's just too dificult to get what I want and eat healthy, and I like cooking. So here's my dinner from Tuesday night after my ride.

I always start with a huge salad. I go through two of these containers a week.

The finished product: Mixed greens, red onion, mushrooms, red/yellow peppers, sundried tomatoes, raw almonds & sunflower seeds, multi-grain croutons, brocoli, carrots, and light mozarella cheese.

A lot of the time I make my own dressing. It's simple. Honey Dijon mustard, basalmic vinegar, salt & pepper. Super simple and healthy.

The main course: Mahi Mahi burgers!

They only take about 6 minutes to cook. cooked up some onions too.

Done. Whole wheat toast, swiss cheese, mahi mahi burger, tomato, onions, mayo, mustard, greens.

That's it. It's a pretty typical dinner for me. It only takes about 10 minutes to make and it's healthy. Good fats, proteins, and carbs. This just made me hungry.

OH MY GOD! we must have been separated at birth. It's 11 am and you just made me so hungry. I eat very similar to you and often at my desk. What? no pine nuts?

Been enjoying your blog as I long for the season to commence. I like the quote you have: "To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. - e. e. cummings." It really keeps me going! I think I'll look for a spot to put that quote in my blog too.
