Another goody from the the last time I ‘Pimped the Beast’, was Menu Planning.
I actually haven’t stopped Menu Planning since I started (it helps save a bit of cash), but I need to change things up a bit to get myself back on track.
I am still eating predominantly Paleo, but Grains seem to keep appearing back in my diet, and my portion sizes are going a bit out the window.
So back to religious logging and back to careful menu planning!

My next thoughts on diet is getting the balance right. I ideally want to make it work from a Long Distance runner point of view, so getting things right is crucial to how I perform. I’d hate to Bonk, so I need to figure it out before Event time!
I have searched a few websites just quickly and have found the article – Eat like a Caveman, Train like a caveman from Runkeeper.com. A very brief insight to getting the balance right and recommends Long Distance Runners get the Book – Paleo Diet for Athletes.
So I bought it secondhand on Abesbooks.
Hopefully I get some good pointers!
In other news, I’ve just been and done BootCamp, and after being sick for FOREVER!! I feel like I am back at square 1! Even as I type this I am so shakey!
I thought after the warm up and the first circuit of Upper body, that I wasn’t doing too badly. We got into the second circuit of Lower body… Shit got Real! Real wobbly! Lack of oxygen plus exertion equals light-headedness and dizzy spells.
I think perhaps I went back too early… I’ll go back in two days just to check. ha!
Even though I had a terrible time, it was Awesome!
Gotta get healthy and back to Hundy percent, I have got cals to burn and fitness to gain, Like yesterday!
How have you Pimped the Beast today?
Menu Planning on your horizon?
See you in a wee bit,
Running a little,
