Chronicles of Less Urban Living, Fresh from In the Night Farm

Tuesday Tallies

My occasional answer to the frequently asked questions, “What do you eat?” and “How do you work out?”

Saturday’s Food as Fuel

Breakfast: Two eggs over easy with avocado, cottage cheese, and primal chili.

Lunch: Moroccan chicken. Half an apple with almond butter.

Dinner: Bunless hamburger with smoked gouda, sauteed mushrooms and onions, and fresh garden salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Half an ounce of 99% chocolate and coconut cream.

Saturday’s Workout: Long day on the farm. 11+ hours of “moving slowly,” with occasional lifting of heavy things. Horse training, riding, chores, gardening…

  1. Hey Tamara, I'm going primal. Well, low-carb primal first, and I'll add back in good stuff like dark chocolate and coconut milk and fruit in a month or so. I'm wondering what shoes you ride in? I've been reading a lot of Mark's Daily Apple lately, and his posts about overcushioned shoes really hit home yesterday. I did 20 miles with endurance stirrups and hiking boots and my knees were screaming at the end of the ride. They still hurt today. I think my feet are overpadded! Any thoughts?

  2. WOOHOO!! I'm excited for you — can't wait to hear how you feel in a couple weeks! :)I ride in Ariat Terrains. They're comfortable enough to wear all day on the farm, have a bit of a heel for riding (but I used caged endurance stirrups anyway) and aren't all "squishy" like athletic shoes. I'm not sure they'd be terribly different from hiking boots, though, except that I find them much less stiff in the uppers.
