We've been recording much of the Olympics (thanks to my best friend DVR) and I've been watching every single swimming race.
So what about Michael Phelps? His 100 m butterfly was pretty much amazing and the closest race I've ever seen. I was ready to jump off my couch and cheer for him but somehow I don't think he would have heard me...
After winning his 8th gold medal tonight I am in awe of just how incredible he is. He's such a great athlete and so fun to watch. We were watching a special with him the other night and I had to laugh at his "diet." He is supposed to eat between 8,000 - 10,000 calories a day because he works out so much. You think it'd be good carbs and tons of lean protein right?....so I was surprised to see his regimen of sausage and chocolate chip pancakes in the morning. And he's a huge fan of eating out, he doesn't cook at all. Funny to get an inside glimpse of an athlete's daily life.
And his mom - gotta love her! So it's official, I think I am in the Michael Phelps fan club - anyone want to join me?
