10:30 – Had a couple bits of my breakfast, but I was going to run soon, so I didn’t finish it
11:15 – Ran 2.71 miles with Steve and it took us about 25 minutes. The last .71 mile was tough because we were going faster. I just wanted to finish w/o stopping.
12:45 – Lunch: Roasted chicken breast, my chorizo frittata slice from breakfast, and some roasted veggies. I didn’t have enough veggies, so I had a small pink lady apple.
IF till 12:30 PM
11:00 – Ran less than 2 miles outside. I felt tired! Dragging my feet.
12:30 – Lunch: 1 chicken thigh/leg with roasted veggies.
Goal is to not over eat since I fasted this morning.
6:00 – Dinner: Beef stew with sauerkraut. I didn’t have that many veggies in the beef stew, just carrots. So I need more veggies, and sauerkraut seemed to fit the bill. I was still hungry afterwards so I had a larabar for dessert.
They rip because you don’t fit in them anymore. They rip because after a crazy time trial workout, your thighs are just swollen! They rip because you got extra fat. Or could it be muscle. Or maybe it’s because you decided to have bread and cupcakes to celebrate an anniversary. Well whatever the reason may be, it happened to me this morning. I pulled myself into some jeans. These are the smallest pair I own and I’ve been holding onto them. Yes, my love handles show, my tummy shows, but shit..I was still able to pull them on. They were loose on me in March when I lost weight by just calorie reduction. But now, not anymore. What the hell is wrong! Is something wrong? I went back to Summer’s post about “Heavy Back Squat” jeans, just to make me feel better. What a way to start the day, and it’s only 8 AM.
CFPA- Time Trials

BOOOOO! Fail Fail Fail! I knew I was setting myself up for failure and I failed. BIG TIME. And what was it…warm toasty hot out of the oven sourdough bread. Oh and a few mini cupcakes! **SIGH**
Tran and I went to celebrate our 12 year anniversary of being together. It was our first real date in a long time. We went to the house of prime rib. I couldn’t say no, and once I ate it, I couldn’t stop! Luckily, bread and a couple sips of wine was the only thing non Whole30 I had at the restaurant. That’s not saying much though, because when I got home, I dug into some mini cupcakes that we had. I ate about 4 tiny little cupcakes w/o the frosting.
So that was that. I’m not going to dwell on it. I know I can do it, and I know how to eat clean. I know I feel much better every time I eat clean, and I yearn for the times where I can restart my clean eating habits. So what now? Start Whole30 again?
I was reading a lot of articles this weekend, and wondering if Paleo is really for me. Maybe I need more carbs, and I shouldn’t go ketosis. Lately I think I’ve been in the range of 50-80 grams of carbs a day, and maybe that isn’t good. Maybe I need 100-150 carbs per day and keep the protein at a normal level, instead of going overboard with the protein to keep me satiated. I was thinking either oatmeal of Ezekiel bread in the morning. But why!! Why do I need grains? Why can’t I just get them from veggies. A HALF A PLATE OF VEGGIES ALL THE TIME!!! Why is that so difficult. I need to change my portion sizes. FOCUS ON VEGGIES, eat veggies…more variety!
I went back to eating clean on Sunday and it wasn’t that difficult. I’m so at a lost. If something is working, I need to shake it up right? Will it hurt me? No, it’ll just take time. OOOH, and for the past two months…SLEEP SUCKED!

Oh ya, I also made some sweet potatoes with this(covered in bacon fat and cinnamon). Maybe I shouldn’t have eaten the sweet potatoes, but they were yummy!
AAAH, half way there. I think I’m eating too much. Well just on the weekends. Too much protein w/o enough fat or carbs. For example, we went to lunch on Saturday and all I had were ribs. They didn’t have any veggies that I could order(their salad sucked!). I weighed myself this morning for the challenge and I was 119.2. So, .2 pounds up. BLEH! I was starving Sunday morning too, and felt like crap. There were so many times were I said I was going to get comfort food, because my throat felt nasty. But I knew if I had “comfort” food, it would taste like shit.
I had two large bowls of cocido this weekend(dinner on Saturday, lunch on Sunday). So yummy! I can’t wait to try the Bison pot roast I made last night. This week I am really going to focus more on eating MORE FAT and just enough protein. If I’m hungry, eat an avocado. I must stick with the palm size protein.
