Day 1: Not So Strict

My first day on Kick Start and I already made accommodations. More because I didn't want to heat up the house than anything else.

Menu:
Latte w/flavor syrup - Core + 2 pts (230)
Smores Luna Bar - 3 pts (180)
Black Bean and Lime soup - Core (340)
Romaine Lettuce, Tomato and Goat Cheese salad - Core + 1 pt (80)
Olive oil and Balsamic Vinegar as dressing - Core (70)
Apple - Core (80)
Cheese - 1 pt (57)
Grilled Veggie Tacos - Core + 2 pts (360)
French Fries - 3 pts (200)
Frozen Yogurt - 2 pts (120)

Yes peeps, that's a total of 14 WPA I've used. However I did do a 50 minute spin class. I think I clocked at least 8 APs in there.

On to other things. Today's training was indoor cycling for newbies or TriDivas that haven't had an indoor class with Martha. She kicked my arse. I don't think I've worked that hard on a regular ride. I've decided to do 2 early morning spin classes to supplement my outdoor cycling. Hopefully it will make me stronger and I can be like Viv.

We also had a nutritionist as our guest speaker. I asked my forever burning question, about how many calories should a person who trains ~ an hour every day and is trying to keep her 1/2 marathon base eat daily? Her answer, obviously it's an individual number, but about 2000. No less. Um, that's a far cry from the ~1200 net calories I've been trying to eat. In case you missed the ( ), the number in there is the approximate calories for the food I ate. Not quite 2000 (1617), but not too bad.

So I guess I'm back to monitoring calories, as well as how hungry I feel.

Ahhh shut up I wish I could be skinny like your arse!

Are you guys taking your bikes and putting them on trainers or doing spin bikes??

I know the low pointage is difficult to accomplish whilst training. I may have to lax myself of the pointage during the oly training cause I don't see it happening. Maintain for a bit

Viv, it was on spin bikes, but my friend Jillian had her actual bike on a trainer.

That way she could practice cliping in and out of them as she had the Look type, not SPD. But at the Y, there were some bikes that had SPD on one side and Look on the other. Weird...
