  1. I love the workouts the possum scares me, Do you have a food list you were eating while you were working out?

    • I currently don’t have specific meal tied to exercising. So no pre/post-workout shake/supplements. I also don’t really have a list of things I will or won’t eat in general. When I make dinner, I tend to cook enough food to feed an army and so will eat leftovers for lunch and dinner the next few days. During the week, I take breakfast, lunch, and snacks to work, but the exact food will vary. I do eat an almost alarming amount of fruit each day.
