The Blitz is over. Many have asked me how I would splurge after (what would I eat first?) The answer: a pretty big handful of Jelly Babies. They'd been taunting me daily for 10 days... I had to take them down - one by one. (Note: is there anything better than that silky smooth sugar on a jelly baby??) After that I pretty much went back to blitz-style eating.

Well we are on day 8 of 10 as I type this. The home straight so to speak....
We had a pretty action packed weekend. I'll hit a few highlights for you.
It was so awesome to hit up the pool together, get our work done independently, and hang after.
In the hot tub:

Hands down one of the best parts of being an athlete is surrounding yourself with a great team. It takes some time to figure out what that means and how to do it... but once the pieces start to come together you can really feel the support.

So far, so good. Sacha is the mastermind behind many of our meals.... I wouldn't stand a chance at this without her.
This was dinner on Day 1. Chicken with tons of veggies. I had about 4 helpings. We topped it with fresh salsa, and a plain yogurt and spice sauce which Sacha invented.
Status: Committed. Today was easier so that's good. 100% adherence so far.
What an amazing thing to watch.
