Protein Day

Top of the mornin’ to ya!

Ok, so the theme has continued.  I thought that since the sun had come out yesterday evening after the big storm, that it was all over.

It was, until 4:30 this morning when another storm hit. And the rain has been going nonstop since!

Lots of rain!

Our radar is completely covered! I hope this doesn’t mean more flooding in the near future.  I feel so bad for all of those who has had damage due to the never-ending dark clouds and raindrops.  The war between Mother Nature and I rages on.

I did forget to share this with you, though.  Yesterday, when the storm was finally losing its power and rage, I got a shot of this:

Phone quality, but still an rainbow nontheless!

Today, as my bike race quickly approaches, I am making sure I get as much protein and water into my body as possible.  I started out the day with a big ziploc full of Kashi GoLean Crunch! A whole 9 grams of protein to start off the morning.

According to some research and calculations, I should be getting anywhere from 55 grams to 150 grams of protein daily.  That’s a huge difference!  I am going to try and get as much as I can today and see where I fall between that range.

I also am keeping my trusty sidekick with me as well.

The whole swim team gets issued the same bottles here, so my silly band helped me quickly pick mine out at practice!

Ok, off to get some work done!

What is your favorite source of protein?

What’s on your agenda for the day?
