A Day In the Life of Tony’s Gastrointestinal Tract
Posted Oct 06 2009 10:00pm
I had no idea what I was going to write today. Honestly, when you’ve been blogging for as long as I have (close to three years now), the fact that I’m able to somehow come up with ideas on a daily basis even amazes me. More remarkable still, is the fact that people want to read what I have to say; albeit I know half my readers only come back because I include pictures of hot chicks being hot.
PS- you’re welcome.
Nevertheless, as much as I’d like to think that I’m creative enough to come up with content on a daily basis, the truth of the matter is, I steal like it’s my J.O.B and I’m not ashamed to admit. No worries, I give credit to the people I steal from. Brian St. Pierre has written several blogs referencing a typical day “in the life” as it relates to his nutrition. As such, I’d figured I’d jump in on the fun and show everyone what an average day looks like for me as well. This is exciting stuff people.
First off, my alarm clock rarely, if ever, wakes me up in the morning. I seem to have some innate superpower that allows me to wake up five minutes before it’s supposed to go off- which sadly, makes that pretty much the lamest superpower ever. Right behind the ability to control plants and accelerate their growth. If you’re a vegetarian, this might be useful. Or, if you’re some sick, twisted individual looking for a reason to make this the worst picture ever taken of Kelly Brook, then you’d also be in luck.
PS- plants suck.
Anyways, back to the alarm clock. I generally wake up between 6:30-7AM every morning, and am legit excited to eat breakfast. I’m far from a morning person, but it’s not uncommon for me to get right out of bed and head straight to the kitchen to make breakfast:
6 Egg Whites
2 Whole Omega-3 Eggs
Pepper, salt, oregano
A shit-ton lot of veggies (2-3 handfuls)
Note: I like to chop up various veggies (mixed colored peppers, onions, carrots, celery, chopped broccoli) beforehand and place everything in a large container for various use throughout the week. It takes me literally ten minutes to chop everything, and saves so much time in the long run.
Salsa, and a dash of light cheddar cheese (hormone free from Trader Joe’s)
Two slices of cinnamon-raisin Ezekiel Bread- lightly toasted
1 tbsp Teddies Natural Crunchy Peanut-Butter. I don’t do smooth peanut butter.
1 banana- placed like a smiley face on my toast. Just because.
1 cup of seedless red grapes or one piece of organic fruit (apple or pear)
And that, ladies and gentlemen is breakfast. By far my largest meal of the day (although my post-training meal is a close second), and oops, I have to interrupt this blog post, because the guys just showed up and it’s time to lift heavy things. To be continued……………
