I have a nice case of DOMs today: chest from Monday's workout, and glutes and hamstrings from yesterday's workout. After doing shoulders (and bike intervals) this morning, I'll be surprised if I can lift my arms tomorrow.

Food so far today:
postworkout: Healtheries apple and raisin bircher muesli with yoghurt and grated apple
mid morning: skinny flat white
lunch: Burgen bread with smoked trout, avocado, red onion and cos lettuce; peach, yoghurt

To come:
snack: macadamias, peach
dinner: pork and cashew stir-fry

I saw Julie (aka Peanut Butter Fingers) post the ABCs of PBF and thought it might be fun to give it a go myself.
