We had to FUel our hike up to Mount Marcy so that...
We had enough energy in store for us to make it there and back! (And everywhere else without ever losing power to continue on!)
As I wasn't really sure how physically demanding our hike to the top would be...
I followed SuperFit's advice in terms of what I should eat prior and during our adventure!
I made sure to pack us our energy and hydration supplies to ensure...
We had enough gas in our tank to last us a long time! (I mean, we didn't want to
run hike on empty!)
If there's one thing I've learned over the course of my journey in health and fitness it's that...
Proper FUelling is key no matter your fitness goals! (And, to enjoy and savour all of the little extras...mindFUlly!)
You want to make sure you are feeding your body right so that...
You can feel and perform at your very best! (And by perform I mean, both physically and mentally!)
|Feeling pretty energized here lol|
Having said that...
Here's a peek into what we ate during our hiking trip in this edition of...
What I Ate Wednesday!
|Thanks Jenn for this tasty link up!|
**We kept it simple with bars and energy shots. I mean, we weren't going on a picnic or nothing (it was raining!) lol We packed light for speed as we knew we'd be climbing up and descending pretty quickly (which was the plan to begin with - to eat and go!). Our FUel was perfect for us as it kept our energy levels up throughout our 7 hour hike. We never missed a beat...unless of course I stopped to take pictures hehe**
|Egg white omelette with oatmeal from The Breakfast Club.|
|We both skipped on the homefries.|
|Greek Yogurt Parfait.|
We had a really, really big breakfast which...
Lasted us a long way!
|Water infused with Nuun Hydration to ensure...|
Proper hydration and replenishment throughout our hike!
|A Clif Bar for SuperFit...|
|One for me too once we reached the top!|
|Clif Energy Shot Bloks for the way down...|
This is about 5 hours into our hike.
|We went to The Cowboy Restaurant for post-hiking eats!|
|A soup of some sort.|
It was super tasty.
I can't remember what was in it!
|I had heard that the burgers were amazing from this restaurant.|
We had to give it a try seeing that we LOVE burgers.
It was huge.
I ate half.
|It was delish!|
|Coffee for the ride home the next morning...|
|We had wanted to stop in here but...|
|It was closed.|
You gotta love the note!
