What Should I

So, my wife can't take me asking "what should I eat?" anymore so she is trying to get me to register the URL, but I can't get it. Even on Blogger.

But, 90% of the time, the answer to the question is Nachos. Is there a more perfect food? Carbs, protein, vegetables, melted cheese, all in one perfectly crafter pile of food.

I love nachos so much, that my nutritionist felt the need to call me out. I might have to make her a plate of my famous nachos to convince her to change teams. They are a great training food. Actually, the best nachos I have ever had, were in North Conway NH after last years Mt Washington climb. Brisket nachos, not something to be taken lightly.

Training isn't all climbing

I am trying to look at my training regimen holistically. I went to a nutritionist a few weeks ago to start adopting my diet

I am eating a lot of Lara Bars and Cliff Nectar bars, all fruit and nuts. Of course, I need to be told exactly what to and what not to eat, so I still eat a fair amount of Nachos, otherwise known as Gods food.

I am about to take some tests to see if I am to high in yeast or other bad things. Once I find out, I will go on a strict regimen to accompany my hiking and working out. I will update the blog as my nutritional plan develops. Who says nutrition is boring?

Not all mountains are literal

Tomorrow I leave for a conference of Interactive Marketing execs called iMedia. Its a fantastic conference with a high class list of speakers and great opportunities to meet a ton of people and to learn about what is coming up and what is starting to emerge.

I just found out that my climbing partner, Markzing, is attending the conference as well so we will get to catch up. He works for United Online. We can talk training and our next attempts in either NH in March, or on Rainier in August.
