27 Jan

I drove to work thinking I was going to run, but I think I'm just going to do it all during lunch.  The plan is to run 1 mile as a warm up, work on a lift, and then do the 15KB/15 pull up x3.

6:00 – soy chai and banana
9:00 – omelet with bell peppers, some shredded chicken, and aspargus
10:00 – a tangerine and 7 gluten free tortilla chips(these were delicious!!!, found at starbucks).  i decided to eat the chips because i had to workout and didn't want to eat my orange.
11:00 – ran a mile at 6.3-7.0 w/ an incline of 1.5.  worked on push press(3×8, with weight of 45,55,65,75#).  i was only doing 75% of max.  then i did the KB/pull-up WOD.  KBs were good…stupid freakin' pull-up bar was not.  i was slipping, so i could only stay on for 2!  i only did 2 at a time, WTF!!  i thought i had tape with me, but it was in my purse, not my gym bag.  BOOO!  Goal was sub 5, actual was 6:08.
I'm going to re-do this next week.
Extra workout: Carrying KB back to car on one hand, and a gym bag on the other…still sweating!
5:00 – some popcorn and an orange
8- steak salad with candied pecans…YUM

6:00 – omelet with asparagus, bell peppers

6:30 – did mainsite WOD.  110# for clean, 95# bench, #85 OHS
9:00 – coffee
10 – tangerine and some nuts
1:00 – beef soup and an orange
3- apple and some more nuts and cranberries
4:00 – did the row/thruster wod with sheena and got a time of 18:58.  Not bad I guess.  I wanted sub 17.  Need to work on the rower. My thrusters were pretty strong(73#).  I couldn't thrust this weight 3 weeks ago. I tried 75# on the thruster/box jump wod and wasn't able to do it.  Went down to 70# and still bad form.  So I'm happy with the progress
sheena made me do 15×3 of GHD sit-ups with a 25lb plate.
6:00 – 1 pork chop baked with roasted bell peppers and more soup.

BIGGEST LOSER BEGINS!

25 Jan

I did pretty good this weekend with food.  We stayed home mostly all weekend, except for Sunday.  I went to a family party and just had papaya salad with beef jerky.  YUM!

I need to get back to doing WODs at the box.  I think I need to compete with others, so I can get pushed more.
5:30 – ran 2 miles.  I ran the first .75 miles at 6.0 mph and an incline of 1.5.  Then for every 400m, I sprinted at 7.0 for 200m, then went back down to 6.0 for the other 200m.
6:45 – coffee and banana
11:00 – nuts
11:00 – worked on back squat 3×5:75,85,95,105,115,120#.  then i did the 7 front squat, 7 push press, 7 sdhp: AMRAP for 10 minutes.  Goal was to get 4 rounds, and I was almost there.  I could of gotten more probably, if my form was right for the push press and sdhp.
Also, I need to eat before these workouts.  I was already tired and shivering during the warmup
12:30 – chicken salad with carrots and some nuts.  Then i ate my omelet, that I should of ate this morning
2:10 – apple
5:30 – went into the box and worked on snatches.  failed on most of my reps.
6:00 – had vietnamese papaya salad(payaya is a veggie right?), and a chicken leg/thigh

5:30 – ran 2 miles. did 30 back extensions(took my time with this one, because i wanted to make sure i did BACK extensions and not HIP extensions).

I really got to work on my dips.  I need to have full range of motion…another thing to work on and no time!
6:30 – got CM and oatmeal from starbucks.  yes i know, oatmeal isn't paleo, but it was better than getting the egg white wrap.  i should of gone to jamba for their $1 Wed Steel oats oatmeal, but it's pouring!!

11- did 5RFT : 5 deadlifts (155#)/10 burpees.  then i decided to work on back squats and did 5×5.
