Nutrition for my Ninja Warrior training and life!

Back in August I committed to compete on season 8 of  American Ninja warrior and submitted my application. The final deadline to submit an application is later this month so I am eagerly awaiting that phone call! The support and encouragement from everyone has been a huge help and I have really taken my training up a level so I can take on one of the biggest goals I have ever set.  With an upcoming Spartan race and most recently adding the new Hammer & Chisel program its vital that my nutrition is on point. Here is a overview of  what my current nutrition looks like. Above all these events like ANW and the Spartan race, whats drives my nutrition choices is that I want to feel my absolute best for my family, my clients and the desire to live a healthy and active lifestyle.

Meal 1 – 2 eggs / 2 egg white omelet with spinach,onions,peppers and gouda cheese. 2 pieces of whole grain toast or oatmeal. (1 red, 1 green, 1 blue, 2 yellows)

Meal 2 – Shakeology blended with frozen fruit, spinach, water and ice. (1 red, 1 purple, 1 green)

Meal 3 – Huge mixed salad  with added kidney beans,tempeh and egg whites. (2 greens, 1 yellow, 2 reds, 1 orange)

Meal 4 – Beachbody Recover shake blended with frozen bananas (1 red, 1 purple)

Meal 5 – Steamed or baked vegetables, baked potato, 10 oz baked fish or turkey (2 greens, 1 yellow, 2 reds)

 

Notes:

*To save time we typically make a large pot of pinto beans or vegetarian chili and that can be lunch or dinner for a couple of days.

*Once weekly I have something off the plan like cheese pizza,fish tacos or sub sandwiches and chips plus cookies!

*My water intake is 150 – 200 oz daily.

*Supplements: (notice I am listing them last, always focus on getting the nutrition right for your body before adding supplements!)

*Shakeology – my daily meal replacement for almost three years. It just helps me feel awesome and is packed with nutrients.

*Energize – From the Beachbody performance line – Its my liquid courage and I drink it before every workout!

*Hydrate – From the Beachbody performance line – its my high tech gatorade with out the sugar. I use it before and during high intensity workouts like Insanity.

*Recover – From  the Beachbody performance line – I count on it post workout to help prevent soreness and it tastes like a Frosty!

*Creatine – I add 2.5 grams daily to my morning shake and I have always felt like it helps me get in those critical last reps.
