Turbo-Carbbed

Yesterday Troy and I did eat at Champps. Boy, did we eat at Champps!

Troy had the chicken fingers and dirty worms. Yeah, worms. Chocolate pudding with oreo crumbles inside of a waffle cone bowl with gummy worms coming out of the top. Good stuff you know!

I had their Chicken Cyn sandwich which is just wonderful. A big juicy chicken breast marinated in a pineapple juice with melted provolone, bacon, tomato and avacodo; served on big whole grain bread that has been toasted..probably soaking in butter for a bit.

I also had a large portion of criss cross potato fries. OMG; I ate them all!

Needless to say-this morning I was up 4 pounds. Each gram of carb holds another 2.5 grams of water. My glycogen stores were good and full!

I read through most of The Paleo Diet for Athletes last night. Very good reading material, although, I could have done without all of the pages of recipies.

I have been eating Paleo pretty much since February. Today I will begin to make a few changes that the authors' suggest. Such as eating prior to working out more that 90 minutes in duration. I usually don't. Today I had a banana and 4 hard boiled egg (whites). I had an excellent workout. Of course, the Champps extravaganza was partly responsible.

I and Topaz ran 10 miles at the trail today. I was turbo-carbbed. After our run we met Ann and her pooch, Maggie, for a 2 mile walk. Lots of good talking time.

The weather is very odd. Warm and foggy; not normal for a MN deer hunting opener. There is no snow on the ground and it should hit 55F today. Very odd indeed.

Special thanks to Darcy of www.ironayla.blogspot.com for setting up my blog. I appreciate it so much!

I took the header picture yesterday at the trail. Topaz is a blur, but he always is; I have a very had time photographing him, he doesn't like the noise the camera makes and is always moving around like a crazed dog.

Have a great day :)

I like the new look. The picture of Topaz in the snow is great. We are getting snow up in the mountains and I want to get up and do my 15-17 mile loop on the White River 50 course that will probably get up into the snow. Take care.

The new header is AWESOME! Reminds me that the seasons are really changing - won't be long before that snow is here!
