Today is TELL ALL TUESDAY. You see, my husband started this series WAY BACK WHEN he was blogging on a regular basis. It was a post about his daily eats, training, etc. Yup, the daily recap of a professional triathlete. He wouldn’t even let me take pretty pictures of his food for him. It was just a snap shot mess of goodness. Not fancy, just real. Love that guy!
Anyway, last week I noticed something. A post. THAT POST. It was UP again! Which means he’s feeling more confident in his training. Which means he’s feeling STRONGER! Which means he’s happy. Which means, I’m a happy Sherpa wife!
Today I am playing what if.. what if I TOLD YOU my TUESDAY? Sherpa style.
If I were doing a TELL ALL TUESDAY, I’d tell you I was up with the husband at 5am. I’d tell you I didn’t not go to masters swimming with him. Instead, I made coffee, had some much needed reading/devotional time, then prepared breakfast for when he returned home. I also made a quick smoothie for myself.
Kiwi (for my kiwi Cotter), cinnamon, GF Hot rice cereal and oats, hemp seed, and yogurt.
I’d tell you that my training was not nearly as intense as my husbands, but as just beneficial. An hour hike with my dad and the dogs followed by Foundation training with my husband. Yes, I count that as a workout, not an active recovery day. I spent my workout times with two of my favorite men and best friends; my husband and my dad. This made me realize how incredibility blessed I am to have them in my life.
If I were to TELL ALL TUESDAY, I’d tell you that I spent the rest of the afternoon doing SHERPA duties as well as my real work. I stocked up on Cotter staples, packed and shipped of a few early delivery Healthy Bites, wrote workouts for my bootcamp class, etc. I’d also tell you that I was in the kitchen most of the day, cause, well.. it’s basically where I do most of my work anyway. haha.
Vegan Cookie Dough Healthy Bites.
Gluten Free Sandwich Lunch and snack plate.
If I were to TELL ALL TUESDAY, I’d tell you our eats change with the season. I’d tell you that fuel, nourishment, and recovery is our main GOAL. I’d tell you that this is what WORKS for us at the moment. I’d also tell you not to overthink food. I am gluten free for a reason. My husband doesn’t have to be, but he enjoys the way it makes him feel. There was a time when not knowing what to eat caused anxiety and stress. Fearing i would get sick again, this only made my stomach worse. Resting our minds and bodies has truly brought healing and nourishment.
If I were to TELL ALL TUESDAY, I’d tell you that my second favorite part of the day (besides my morning coffee) is making dinner. I love the process. I love UNDOING and UNWINDING the day. Chopping up ingredients, sipping on wine, and filling our bellies.
Tuna cakes made with 2 cans wild caught Tuna, coconut flour, 2 eggs, fresh herbs, lemon pepper, fried in coconut butter. Topped with homemade garlic yogurt sauce (combined laughing cow cheese with chobani and garlic) and Peri-Peri sauce.
If I were to TELL ALL TUESDAY. I’d tell you that my sherpa job outweighs my real job right now. I have taken on only one nutrition client in 2 years and to be honest, I’m fine with that. My view of nutrition has changed so much over the years due to my own health. I also think we live in a confused society. Too much stress, too many extremes, and not enough balance. But needless to say, I’m still passionate about nutrition. Here’ are a few great articles that are worth a read.
Cooking with Essential Oils
Sugar : the American Diet
Yes, that is what I would tell you on this Tuesday.
What would you tell me? What’s your Tell All Tuesday?
