Done with Maui/Off to Oahu – 08/30/10

30 Aug

The last two nights, I've ended the day with bread, noodles, more bread, and two scoops of ice cream in a waffle cone.  Our trip is winding down, and my diet needs to tighten up.  September 1st is the day I get back on the Paleo train and portion control.  LOTS OF VEGGIES, LOTS of PROTEIN.  It's going to be hard because we'll still be on vacation September 1st, but I will try my best.  Lately I've been really good in the day, and  then I just splurge at night.  It puts me to sleep, and I wake up feeling ICK!  Farts galore!  I've been able to get some workouts in, and we are going to Lahaina Crossfit this morning, so that will be good.  YAY for vacation!

7:00 – Lahaina Crossfit
Strength – 3×5 of clean & jerk: 45#/65#/75#
Metcon – 3 rounds of 1 min KB Swings(1pood), 1 min Box jumps, 1 min SDHP(45#)

Had a Paleo Kit for brunch, a turkey protein burger with fried egg and bacon and sweet potatoes for lunch, and some oxtail ramin for dinner w/ mangoes.

I had samples of the Hawaiian Cookies.  mmmMMMMmmmm

Getting Dunked – 08/23/10

23 Aug

AAAH, I woke up late, so I missed my 5AM class.  Schedule was all wacked this morning, but now I am back to normal.  I'm going to IF today because I have a dunk appointment at 3PM.  I brought all this lunch too, but oh well.  I will just eat after my dunk.

7:00 – CFPA
Strength – Worked on Snatch, 33#(5), 53(#), 58#(5), 63#(3), 63#(3), 63(#)
MetCon – AMAP for 10 Minutes of 10 Front Squats(87#), Max Push Ups.  I got a total of 75 Pushups in 5 rounds.  Ouch!!!

I need to work on keep core tight while doing the snatch.  I was doing a squat snatch too, and Tim told me afterwards to just focus on the power snatch instead.

11:30 – Run – 2.71 miles in 25:11.  It's freakin' HOT!

3:00 – Got Dunked, and boy…am I fat!  I am 25% BF, up 4.5% from March!!  Yes, I already know this, and it shouldn't be a big surprise.  It all goes to the abs and love handles.  Time to step up my game.  Vacation will be a test. I'm not going to be anal or make a big deal about it.  But September comes around, and I gotta kick it up into high gear!

3:30 – Lunch: 3 fried eggs with some broccoli
5:00 – 1 cup of watermelon and a small handful of cranberries
7:30 – 3 fried egg in coconut oil.  Dessert was half a banana with avocado, coconut milk, and half a scoop of whey protein powder.
Summary: I'm FAT and I got to get over this.  I need to find alternative methods to keep me full without binging on nuts.  Yes, I do binge on nuts.  I guess I can eat half a bag of cashews if I wanted to, and I've done that MULTIPLE times while on Whole30.  I  need to eat more veggies!!  MORE VEGGIES!  Maybe just stick to veggies that I like, cauliflower, broccoli, and sweet potatoes.  Today's calories were low because I IF'ed until 3:30.

Craving something all day – 08/22/2010

23 Aug

All day I was craving something bad.  ANYTHING.  Cookies?  Bread?  Ice cream?  What do I want.  I couldn't decide, and if I cheated I wanted the cheat to be worth it!!  

Breakfast: Half an avocado with half a banana, half scoop of whey, and a dab of coconut milk.  YUM!  taste like butta!
Snack: 2 egg whites
Lunch: Ahi tuna with boiled broccoli and bok choy
Snack: Blueberries, dried cranberries
Dinner: Scallops(DELICIOUS!!) and pan fried broccoli and bok choy with squash.
Dessert: PaleoKrunch with some cranberries and blueberries
Summary: I ended up going to mall, and thought about getting pretzels and cookies for a split second.  I didn't do it.  Instead I got a small messenger bag.  LOL.  If I can't eat, I'll shop.  BAD!  People say I should be eating more calories.  I shouldn't weigh anything either, but I can't help it.  Carbs are a bit high.  I guess I could of done without the PaleoKrunch.  That was my last "regular" bag, so I just want to get rid of it before I leave to Hawaii.

Saturday Fun Days – 08/21/10

21 Aug
I got some help on the Crossfit forum, and they said I need to definitely up my calories with PALEO foods.  So, I should not be eating cashews, because they are high in carbs.  I'm going to try to eat more veggies and stick to about the same amount of protein.  I need to get full from veggies though, and not rely on so much protein.

7:30 – Breakfast: 2 poached eggs with a dab of hollandaise sauce, and 1 cup of greens.  3/4 of an apple with 1 tbsp of sunbutter.  Should keep me full until at least 11.

10:30 – 1 egg white
1:00 – protein burger from five guys burger and fries.  had some cajun fries too
4:00 – 2.5 oz chicken breast deli meat
6:00 – sashimi(at least 12oz) and seaweed salad
Summary:  Did okay today.  Maybe ate too much for dinner, but stayed away from the rice.  Shouldn't of had those few pieces of fries, but I'm not going to beat myself up about it.

TGIF – 08/20/2010

20 Aug

After Wednesday's binge, I think I want more pan de sal!  But I'm trying to maintain, and just jump back into clean eating.  I did it yesterday, just over ate on the fat.  BOOO!

5:00 – CFPA
Strength: Ring dips.  These are so hard for me.  Not sure why.  I need to practice more.
Metcon: AMRAP in 10 minutes: 5 DB DL, 5 DB Hand Power Clean, 5 DB Thursters/ Rx'ed at 25# = 10 rounds + 10 reps

I was not feeling the ring dips.  The metcon woke me up, and it was a good one.  My forearm is going to get huge.  LOL

7:30 – PWO Meal: Half a scoop of vanilla protein powder with water, and 2oz of sweet potato puree(baby food)

9:45 – Breakfast: 4 egg whites with half a red onion, and some bell peppers.  I also grabbed brussel sprouts and carrots for more veggies.  Definitely a 3 block meal.
11:30 – Run: 3.87 miles and it took 35:08.  Felt really good.  Not too fast, but not too slow either.

2:45 – Lunch: Romaine lettuce with 1 oz of chicken!  BLEH, I took apart the TJ ceasar salad, and that was all that was left.  So I munched on 1/2 cup of cashews(maybe more!), and some cranberries. <—-BAD!
6:30 – Dinner: Went to Tribu Grill with Jan, Shelly, and Sue.  I stuck to my guns with protein and veggies for dinner.  Dessert came out and I had about 3 small bites of the ice cream, and 2 small bites of the sticky rice.  Not sure what it is called, but I thought I did well!  LOL.  Until I came home, and started eating jerky and watermelon.  Definitely full after that.
