If It Tastes Good, Spit It Out

Posted: March 7, 2011 in Football

A couple of posts ago I mentioned that my birthday wish was to be in shape for the “7 days of horror” or 6am’s as most people call it. After two days of workouts I have came to the conclusion that my birthday wish did not come true at ALL, not even by a little. Today we had 8 agility drills that I was hurting at the end of it, luckily we had push ups at the end which were not too bad. All people are different, some think pushups and sit-ups are hard and will start puking if they do too many like some did today but I can do a million pushups or sit-ups and be fine. On the other hand quick sprints make me tired and if I do many I will end up laying my lunch out on the field! After finding out on friday that my conditioning is terrible I decided to go on a diet hence the title, “If It Tastes Good, Spit It Out”. If there is one thing I love about my life is the food I eat and like most people if I love it and it taste good, I probably shouldn’t be eating it. As you can tell already I hate diets but I figure I have one more year guaranteed to play football and I don’t want to have any regrets so Im going to force myself to do it! After I met with our strength coaches I went to the grocery  and it was not as bad as I thought it would be, I actually kind of like most of the stuff and I still get to eat CHIPOTLE!!!!!. My Diet kind of goes like this….

Breakfast: 5 hardboiled Eggs, bowl of Silk cereal with blueberrys (antioxidants), and a banana or orange.

Looooove Vanilla Silk.

Lunch: 5 dollar foot looooong with some pistachios

Dinner: CHIPOTLE!!!!!! I can also substitute it with 12 california rolls or rice and chicken

Snacks: My snacks include a bagel with peanut butter, fruit, and protein shakes

Vitamins: Fish oil and I need to find some good Amino Acid pills!

    Chipotle hot sauce will make the reverse eat a toughie! Ouch!

    Read some on scout.com and caught some pics and vids of the 6 am-ers. Was wondering how your chest was doing with all the push ups.

    I love your blog Tyler. I blog on the same website, actually. Anyway, good to hear you’re doing well. Keep writing, it’s fun to read!

    Also try Egg Beaters instead of the Hard Boiled eggs, all of the protein and none of the cholesterol. You can make a big Omelette with Cheese and add Ham, mushrooms etc…..easy and quick to make in an 8″ Omelette pan.

  4. I did not do any of the push-ups, I am still on the little kid ones with my knee’s touching lol. It is feeling a lot better but it is a very slow rehab. Craig I am not allowed having cheese!!!!!!! I forgot to mention that but I know im going to go crazy because thats my favorite food.

    • Craig says:

      No Cheese? I would go crazy as Chedder on my omelette and Muenster as a snack is part of my No Sugar diet. A glass of milk has 12 grams of sugar and Cheeze has “0” with all the protein…..

    You need to look into taking Spirulina and tell the rest of the team about it. You may win a national title even with all the negative nellies like Bruce Hooley trying to burn the program down.
