  1. Lately, I've been in need of easy-to-eat-while-driving-in-traffic breakfast options (After swimming and before work), besides smoothies, one of the easiest (to eat) is to make Tortilla(the Spanish kind, Mexican Tortillas are delicious but not exactly healthy), I use a frying pan about 20cm (8"), heat some base ingredient, take out, mix with a couple of eggs, and put back in the pan (add some olive oil), after about five minutes Flip, cook for another five minutes, take out, let cool a couple of minutes and put in a plastic bag or container, eat like a sandwich. I like it at room temperature, but it also reheats well. Some paleo base ingredients I've tried (and liked): - Sweeet potatoes, onions and red pepper - Spinach and ham - Onion, tomatoes, cilantro and jalapeño (mexican style!) - Leftover chicken fajitas - Leftover pork rinds (cooked in mexican salsa) - Sausage, chorizo and onion Just remember to heat the base before mixing with the eggs, otherwise it gets really brown outside and raw inside, don't ask how I know. It would also work really good for lunch at the office (or school, or whatever)
  2. Yes teri, I meant Mountain Bike!
  3. Week one was kind of weak, no biking despite having time, should have organized it better, running keeps eluding my (more likely the other way around), need to find a strategy for that, in the past I ran in the mornings, but my current schedule does not leave me the time (I swim early morning). Eating was within my goal, but one meal was a bit of a binge, mut be more careful with my food choices, and specially with quantitities when I go off-road. 1. SWIM 5/5 2. BIKE Long 0/1 Short 3/2 3. RUN, 0/2 4. Paleo: 18/18
  4. This challenge is basically try and keep on with what I started last challenge, 1. SWIM: Goal is simple, swim every weekday, unless out of town. 2. BIKE, At least one 20k+ ride, MTB preferred. At least two lunch-commutes (5k round trip, on a 16-inch bike), per week 3. RUN, get back to running, or at least walk-run, Goal is two runs per week. 4. Paleo: After a Whole29 (February), I intend to keep on primal/paleo, no cheat-meals, but not get too strict either, goal is no more than 3 deviations per week (or 18 fully paleo meals), deviations must be small and meaningful (worth it).
  5. Final post of the challenge, flu finally gave way but week four was an almost complete loss, did what I could, but sincerely hope to get better results next challenge. WholeFebruary ends today and I am seriously considering to keep with it for a little longer. 1. SWIM, 4/4 - 5/5 - 3/5 - 0/0 2. BIKE, long 1/1 - 0/1 - 0/1 - 0/0 short 3/2 - 3/2 - 2/2 - 0/0 3. RUN, 1/2 - 0/2 - 0/2 - 0/0 4. WholeFebruary,100%. - 100% - 90% -100%
  6. I'm not fully recovered yet from the flu, it's a nasty variation (currently monkey wife and the littlelest monkey are home, with fever and stuff), so I'm not nearly back on track, but hoping for the best. I do think the Whole30 is helping in the waistline department.
  7. Hey! seems likle you are doing great this challenge! keep at it!
  8. Week 3 was a mess, no monday swimming (got home after sunday work at 5:00am), and major flu-cough got me on thursday and kept me in the house throughout the weekend (there´s an epidemic here, so we have to stay home). Good news is I kept my wholeFebruary almost compliant (added some honey-sweetened tea and coffee), I feel a lot better today (no swimming yet), still hope to accomplish some of my goals for week 4, ableit it will all be health-dependent. 1. SWIM, 4/4 - 5/5 - 3/5 2. BIKE, long 1/1 - 0/1 - 0/1 short 3/2 - 3/2 - 2/2 3. RUN, 1/2 - 0/2 - 0/2 4. WholeFebruary,100%. - 100% - 90%
  9. Week 2 was crazy again, we had a major job assignment and it meant working saturday and (until very late) on Sunday, so some things just did not happen: 1. SWIM, 4/4 - 5/5 2. BIKE, long 1/1 - 0/1 short 3/2 - 3/2 3. RUN, 1/2 - 0/2 4. WholeFebruary,100%. - 100% One major win: late night sunday, at the office, hungry (very) and there is pizza... not even a bite. I actually surprised myself!
  10. First week: 1. SWIM, 4/4 2. BIKE, long 1/1 short 3/2 3. RUN, 1/2 4. WholeFebruary,100%.
  11. Half under 2 hours is awesome! (My PR is 2:50 )
  12. Great challenge and progress so far! That is some badass morning routine!, I thought cooking breakfast for the little monkeys and swimming was a lot!
  13. First week is going great: WholeFebruary (which I just realized is going to be 29 days!) is going good; No running yet, partially because swimming sessions have been hard, (which is awesome!), two bike lunch-commutes so far and a long-ish ride scheduled for tomorrow, need to squeeze in some run or walk today and probably Sunday, for a perfect week one!
  14. A day late (yesterday was holiday, so...) My second challenge of the year is go back to basics, and by basics I mean swim, bike and run, oh, and paleo, my first Whole30, which ended up being something like Whole47 went great, lost some weight, felt a lot better and made some food changes that keep on two years later, BUT, some other healthy choices have become less and less common lately, so: 1. SWIM, finally, back in the pool (today was my first of the year): Goal is simple, swim every weekday, unless out of town. 2. BIKE, At least one 20k+ ride, MTB preferred. At least two lunch-commutes (5k round trip, on a 16-inch bike), per week 3. RUN, get back to running, or at least walk-run, Goal is two runs per week. 4. WholeFebruary, 28 days, grain, milk, sugar, processed food and leguminose-free. (already on day 2), no cheat meals, no exceptions (works for me!). On a side note, going back to my previous (long ago) challenges, I realized a reading goal started as a NF goal, 12 books a year, well, I did it for two years and last year I read 24, this year is 24 again and it's not even a goal anymore, it's more of a house-rule now, cool stuff.
