For the new year, I have quit smoking, improved my sleep schedule, renewed my efforts to work out (rowing is my exercise of choice), and gone stricter paleo. My body is a bit confused at times as to what is going on, but I am doing my best. Since returning to New York a few days ago, I've held firm, and want to stay that way.
I followed my instincts when I bought things after rowing. I got:
- Coconut water
- Kombucha (GT's)
- a banana
- Lindt 90% dark chocolate
- almonds, roasted and salted
My body told me to get all of these things, but I wonder if I'm getting enough protein or other good things for recovery. I plan on rowing again later in the week (and really making it a regular thing), so any ideas for improving this?
Also, my goal for working out is to tone muscle or build if I can. I'd love to loose fat, but strength is more important.
EDIT: per Jusuisjuba's request, here's a breakdown of typical meals:
Breakfast: 2 eggs, lox or beef or lamb, possibly something in the eggs like olives, sun-dried tomatoes, or hot peppers.
Lunch, if I have it: full fat Greek yogurt, nuts, possibly some veggies
Dinner: Meat, veggies (possibly in the form of a salad), maybe nuts. Alternatively a soup or chili. Dark chocolate for dessert.
Drinks throughout the day are water, and sometimes coconut water or kombucha.
