18.5% Body Fat – Goal is to get down to 12%

28 Jan

**BIG SIGH**.  I was really disappointed when I heard that number, even though I'm in the average for my BMI group.  I thought I would be 15% or something.  Judd would like me to be at 12%, gain more muscle and get stronger.  I hope I can do it.  This would mean that I need to get back to my wedding weight days.  Honestly, the Paleo Diet does not sound appealing at all!  Limited fruit?!?!  That is what I use to snack on instead of chips, candy, etc.  I heart fruit.  No dairy??!?!  Wow! I don't have much dairy…but still!  That means no more cappuccinos (as I'm sipping on one right now…hahaha).

Anyways, I think I'm going to try my best at sticking to the meal plans.  I gotta remember that I'm just eating healthy, and a little cheat here and there will not hurt, especially if I am staying active(because I love to exercise…says Tran).  Judd says 2 cheat meals a week, but maybe I'll have 3.  LOL.  I gotta remember the goal: Must look hot for Hawaii Weddings and must gain more muscle!!
Jahnny – Can you help me with my overhead squats?  You can practicing being a Coach on me!!  :-)
7:00 – 2.5 oz leftover salmon from last night and sippin' on my grande non-fat half-calf cappuccino
10:00 – the other 1 oz of my salmon and 1 egg white
11:30 – phung took me to sweet tomatoes.  i had spinach salad with all the veggies and mostly vinegarette and a little bit of olive oil.  i had one cup of veggie soup with some bread.  here comes the bad part: 2 blueberry muffins, 1 banana muffin top….AND then we went to a yogurt place after.  I got gelato.
So I think I pigged out because I am going to be restricted next week and eat super super healthy.  I must have control and stay healthy for 5 days straight!!!!

5:00 – had a small picked something…nem chua in vietnamese
6:00 – got to crossfit and we did Kelly.  Warm uped with a 400 m run.

5 rounds for time – My time was 30:32

  • 400 m run
  • 30 wall balls
  • 30 box jumps ( i scaled it by stepping)

My goal is to not scale box jumps soon.  I gotta get that hip action going. My hips are so tight.  I need to loosen them up.  More hip action STEPH!

8:00 – i grilled up some steak to make a steak salad.  I think I ate about 6oz, and not the 4oz that I was suppose to.  Oh well.  I marinated it with the Paleo Recipe (rosemary, thyme, and basil) with some grape seed oil.  I had it with salad, asparagus, and bell peppers.  YUM-O!  dessert:1/4 a grapefruit and an apple

27 Jan

So I wanted to do the overhead lunges this morning with the burpees.  But, as I started the first round, I gave up.  I don't think I was doing it right.  My lunges weren't going all the way down.  Plus, I'm still super sore!!  I will rest my legs until tonight.

5:00 – biked with intervals for 30 minutes.  walked on treadmill for 10 minutes.
7:00- my grande capp and 1 egg white
9:00 – 1 hard boiled egg
11:30 – some fruit before lunch.  i went to dish dash for lunch.  i know…it's only Tuesday, but i didn't pack a lunch today.  easy excuse.  i had the chicken shawarma wrap(yogurt on the side) with a salad.  i didn't eat all of the salad(too much dressing now).  i ate all of the insides, and about 3/4 of the wrap. šŸ™‚  i should be full until 5!!
3:20 – fruit and a fruit lather
6:00 – for 20 minutes, do as many rounds as possible of the following:
    • 5 front squats
    • 5 push something
    • 5 overhead squat
    • run 400m for 10 minutes
I did 15 rounds, although they were not perfect form at all.  The overhead squats were HARD.  My arms were shaking and I couldn't go all the way down on the squat.
7:30 – baked salmon with asparagus and carrots.  i actually tried the paleo recipe for the salmon.  not too bad.  i don't think it was salty enough for sean(or fatty enough).  lol.
