Day 34

Too much or never enough

We all do it. And, apparently, the average person does it for a total of five years in their lifetime. Some more than others, and I would have to be in the “more” group at the moment. (Hint: It is not rowing)

This post is fully dedicated to all the calories that make this rowing machine run. So, chew on this:

    • 300 Clif bars (lots of different flavors)
    • 210 dehydrated lunches/dinners
    • 98 dehydrated breakfast meals
    • 90 Snickers bars
    • 80 Bumble bars
    • 70 trail mix bags (small)

Dinner on the Atlantic

  • 50 Twix, Butterfinger, and Hersheys bars
  • 42 dehydrated desserts (cheesecake or chocolate pudding)
  • 40 salmon or tuna packs
  • 18 bags dried mango (plain and spicy)
  • 12 bags of beef or turkey jerky
  • 7 bags of dried plantains
  • 8 bags almonds
  • 12 bags cashews
  • 5 bags dried cherries
  • 6 bags wasabi peas
  • 8 hard bread packs with almond butter
  • 12 bags of crackers
  • 10 bags dried pears
  • 10 bags of mission fig and calamyrna figs
  • 8 bags of dried peas
  • 7 boxes of biscotti
  • 30 sunflower packs (small)
  • 200 GU Energy gels
  • 100 GU Blocks
  • 7 bags dried blueberries
  • 40 gummies bags
  • 50 fruit leathers
  • 6 bags of flattened banana
  • 4 bags of mangosteen
  • 12 packs of chocolate covered ginger
  • 4 bags of tangy almonds
  • 3 bags of whey protein
  • 2 packs of Fig Newtons
  • 6 bags of sesame crepes
  • 2 chocolate cookies bags
  • Nuun electrolyte replacement tablets
  • 1 sprouting kit with lots of seeds!

……………………and more! (Would love to give all the little details, but I have an ocean to row!)

Now that I am nearly halfway across, today I will be going through all this fuel, chucking some overboard (brought 110 days worth), and ensuring the boat is properly balanced. And trying to find my hidden bag of cookies!

By the time this ride is over, I shall reveal the results of my study can there ever be too much chocolate or never enough?!
