As I progressed in my training for Ironman Texas, I realized I would have to improve my approach to my nutrition if I were going to do well in my first Ironman. I consulted with focused+fit to fine tune my hydration and nutrition strategy to power me through the race. focused + fit provided me guidance on how to stock my kitchen, construct a meal plan for training days and understand how many calories I needed to fuel my training day in and day out. This information was very valuable to me as a newbie to the sport of triathlon. Lisa really kept it simple, and I was not overwhelmed. In addition, she taught me to listen to the signals that my body gave me regarding nutrition/hydration throughout training, so I could adjust as I trained as well. From a nutrition standpoint, my race went great. I was able to eat what was comfortable for me, and complete the race well-fueled and without any GI issues, which is always a big concern for long-course athletes.

Even small physical activities increase metabolic rate significantly, and it is the cumulative impact of all of these movements that make up your daily NEAT.
It’s only the second week of August and in Texas it’s time to gear up for the school year. Like for real. Our kids go back to school Thursday. After the looser schedules and freewheeling of the summer, personally I’m ready for a return to structure. It’s not necessarily better, it’s just different and frankly I think my kids are ready for it too. They just may not know it yet. Read More
