Today is usually an IF day(intermittent fasting), but since I'm watching my portions, maybe I shouldn't. I brought breakfast and lunch with me, but I haven't had anything except for coffee yet. We'll see how long it can last. To IF properly, you need to NOT eat for 16+ hours, usually from dinner the night before to dinner the next day. Then you eat 1 big meal, and that's it. Other people have gone 16+ hours, then an 8 hour eating window. The key is to still stay under the calorie intake, and not to eat regular meals. Do not overindulge just because you haven't eaten anything all day!
5:30 – Workout Of the Week(WOW) developed by Mark Sission, the Primal Blueprint author and creator of Primal Blueprint Fitness
Maximum cycles in 12 minutes of 50 m sprints, 10 air squats, 10 push ups – Total 10 rounds + 50 m sprint
This one was a good one, and I always feel as though I could of gone faster. I didn't accurately measure out 50m because I didn't have my watch on me, but it was pretty close. I'll measure it one day.
7:00 – Peet's coffee, black, no sugar…WOW, I might be able to get used to this.
IF ended at 1PM!
1:00 – Lunch: Large spinach salad with ground turkey spaghetti, half an avocado, carrots, and 6 cherry tomatoes. Looks like I might have went over on the protein, close to 4 blocks, but the carbs is right at 3 blocks. Went way over the fat, but I'm fine with that as long as I don't get over on the carbs.
2:50 – Snack: 1 cup of strawberries(1 carb block) and 1oz of beef jerky
Geez, I go back and forth, back and forth thinking about whether or not to eat it. JUST DO IT! It's just strawberries. 1 block of strawberries, that's it! I think I'm afraid of what might happen afterwards. More snacking, more eating. That's why I must take my time a chew my food. I'm being too noradic.
Jerky was made from my workout partner at xfit. I'm only eating 1oz or 1 block of protein.
4:00 – 40 minute walk with Mason
5:15 – Snack: 1 cup of watermelon
6:30 – Dinner: Beef soup veggies with sweet potatoes and 1 piece of chicken tender. That's not it! LOL – dried cranberries w/ pistachios. Ya, I might have over ate a bit, but calories are still under.
Summary: I shouldn't have eaten too much during dinner. I didn't have to eat the sweet potato and chicken tender, but I was under carbs and protein. Need to control next time.
