The knee is still aching when I sleep at night.  Maybe it's because I curl up into fetal position, and when I stretch it hurts.

6:30 – eggs w/ salsa and a little bit of fruit.  Triple shot skinny vanilla latte.
I've decided on March 1st, I'll be going on Phase 1 of the Fat Smash diet.
10:00 – small fruit plate w/ pineapple, cantaloupe, grapes, and half a small grapefruit
12:00 – lots of salad w/ chicken and pico de gallo sauce.  half of my other grapefruit

Couldn't get myself up in time for a workout this morning.  Planning on doing two met con wods, but I doubt that will happen.

6:30 – skinny vanilla latte
9:00 – scrambled egg whites w/ asparagus, mushrooms, and brussel sprouts.  also had half a chicken sausage
10:30 – workout #1
  • AMRAP in 12 min: 3 squat cleans, 7 pull ups, 10 sit ups.  I did power cleans because I didn't want to put any pressure on the knee.  75#s for the power cleans and jerks.  Pull ups were my weak point here.  Took me forever to get 7.  I blame it on soreness and not wanting my calluses to rip(almost did).  I'm not sure how many rounds I got, I need to watch the video and count it.  I'm assuming 7, which total sucks because I wanted to do 1 per minute.  If this were Monday, I knew I could of done it.
  • practiced double unders

12:00 – 1 piece of the curry chicken(about 4-5oz) and some asparagus and brussel sprouts.  3 mango slices and some pineapple.  Okay…i can't eat for another 3 hrs.

3:00 – i think 4 slices of turkey breast
5:45 – A plum, salmon, asparagus, and bell peppers

5:00 – Workout #1

  • Deadlift: 5/3/1/1/1 – 135#/155#/175#/195#/200#

I did some video of my air squats and front squats.  I'm going to post it somewhere to get some feedback.  LOL.  I started to do one world's WOD, and then gave up after 2 minutes because of my damn freakin' calluses.  I should of cut them last night.  I will cut them when I get home, and maybe I'll try to the WOD again tonight at the box(depends on how I feel).  LOL.  Since I didn't finish the WOD, I'm working out during lunch.  Stupid me, I need to find the mental capacity to push through a workout even though I may be aching or hurting somewhere.  I have to push through, otherwise I won't be able to finish at sectionals and get a big fat "DNF" next to my name.  BLEH!

7:00 – Soy chai

10:30 – egg white scramble w/ lots of asparagus, brussel sprouts, and mushrooms.  
11:15 – Workout #2

This weekend was good.  Stayed away from starch and ate a lot of veggies and protein on Saturday.  My cheat on sunday was sweet potato fries.  I was tempted a lot at the movies and stuff.  Had to watch Thuan, his wifey, and my hubby eat sandwiches on baguette bread.  **SIGH**

Another two weeks of trying to get lean and fit for sectionals.  We'll see how the knee holds up.  Going to try to hit it hard Mon, Tues, and Wed, then rest Thurs/Fri because I'll be in Utah.  Can't decide if I want to visit an SLC Box, or just run at the hotel.  We'll see if I even have time.  I will be tempted all day Thurs/Fri because they always order yummy food.

TGIF- 02/19/10

19 Feb

5:30 – Workout #1(Active Rest Day)

  • Biked for 30 minutes.  I just wanted to do something because I didn't run last night.  My knees did not feel good this morning, but after biking and icing, they are oook.  Not sure what to do about tomorrow's throwdown.  We'll see how I feel.
  • Slowly did some back extensions(40 reps), then I was able to do 4 strict pull ups.  Just wanted to see where I stood w/ that.
  • Got on the scale. 🙂

7:00 – 2 egg whites, some carrots, and a soy chai.  I must watch what I eat today and tomorrow.  I can't over do it if I'm going to be home and not getting much exercise in.

10:30 – baby carrots and 1 hard boiled egg
11:15 – aah, here we go…ate my romaine lettuce w/ some boiled shrimp.
6:00 – we went to a new restaurant in the coleman plaza called blue moon.  everything looked so good there.  it's a thai/jap restaurant.  had mostly veggies/beef and beef tataki.  came home feeling dizzy and it's probably because of all the salt and maybe MSG that they put in it.  seriously felt like i was going to faint.  little did i know that i would gain 5lbs from it the next day.  **SIGH**
