Tuesday Ramblings – 09/28/2010

28 Sep

AAAH, yesterday really stressed me out! I hate trying on dresses, and not finding a good one. Something was wrong. Either it fit well at the hip, but not at the shoulders or vice versa. It just got me really discouraged, and I want to see instant results. I have to remember to be patient.

5:30 – Ran 2.9 miles. Geez, this did not feel good at all. I was hot and tired. My legs felt stiff. I ran the first mile, walked a few minutes, then ran again. I was on the treadmill for a total of 30 minutes.

8:00 – Breakfast: Sipping on some coffee. I’m eating the last of my flank steak with leftover asparagus and 1/2 cup of spinach.

12:50 – Lunch: Spinach salad with bell peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers.  1 beef patty and 1/4 of an avocado.  No dressing.

3:00 – Snack: I got hungry and had two small chicken thighs with 1/4 of an avocado

5:00 – Snack: Boy, am I pooped when I get home.  I get hungry!!  I had chicken breast deli slices from applegate.

8:00 – Dinner: I was really hungry, but I didn’t give in!   My chicken finally finished, and I had 1 thigh/leg with a very small serving of veggies and 1/2 cup of raw spinach.

YAY, 4 day work week – 09/27/2010

Strength – Thrusters: 63#(3), 73#(3), 83#(3), 93#(1), 103#(1), 108#(F) – YAY, I got a Thruster PR. Well, this is the first time we had a thruster cycle, but whatevs…the 103# felt really good. Not sure what happened to the 108#. I think I was leaning forward too much.

Metcon – 10->1 KB Swings(24KG) with 100 m sprint in between. 8:16..WOO HOO. I beat my previous time and the last time I did this, I was using the 20Kg Bell too!

5:30: snack: 4 slices of turkey breast with 1/4 of an avocado

615- Dinner: bowl of asparagus bean salad with my beef patty. here’s a pic of the asparagus serving:

Time to REALLY buckle down! – 09/26/2010

27 Sep

Got up this morning at 4 again. Natural Calm didn’t really work, but I’ll try it again tonight.

8:00 – Roasted veggies with 5 slices of flank steak

12:00 – We bbq’ed some country pork ribs. I ate half a slab with Paleo BBQ sauce. I didn’t eat that many veggies because I was in a rush to head to the mall.

3:30 – Came home and ate more ribs.

Came home from the mall, and didn’t feel too great. I was trying on dresses at BCBG, and I went up to a size 4. It’s probably because of my lats, but my tummy was feeling really tight too! I really need to lose some inches.

7:00 – Asparagus/Beans salad courtesy of Sweet Cheeks! Here is the recipe! It was delicious!

I had a small beef patty with this.

Its gonna be a hot one!! -09/25/2010

25 Sep

Got up this morning at 4!!! I got some natural calm, so I’m going to take some of that tonight to see what happens.

7:30- Breakfast: a few pieces of flank steak with veggies

Ouch, I got diarrhea again! Very strange an I’m not sure what it is.

11:00 – Went to sonoma chicken coop and I had a shrimp avocado salad with no dressing or bacon.  Had a couple bits of tran’s chicken, and I was trying to scrape of the bbq sauce

4:00 – I was HUNGRY!  I had a small beef patty with some turkey deli meat slices

6:00 – Anniversary Dinner at Pampas Brazilian Restaurant!  I did pretty freakin’ good, even though I didn’t cut out the 25% of protein that Summer asked me too.  I had the Rodizio which is basically all you can eat protein.  Waiters come around asking you if you want a slice of different types of meat.  I tried everything, and the filet mignon and skirt steak were the best.  I liked the tiny chicken drumsticks too.  I also had lots of veggies.  I left the restaurant feeling full but not overwhelmingly stuffed.  If I had bread or dessert, I’d be really stuffed!

TGIF! – 09/24/2010

24 Sep

Sleep was ok. ABS are sore. It hurts to laugh, even if its just a giggle! OUCH. Hurts so good right?!


Strength – Pull-ups: 3(BW) – 3(3#), 3(5#), 1(8#), 1(12#), 1(15#-F). I was close to getting the chin over the bar with the last rep, but didn’t.

Metcon – Tabata KB Swings(20KB) and Abmat situps, then max DUs in 2 minutes: 148 total reps and 27 DUs. Pretty easy workout for a Friday, even though the abmat situps hurt bad.

8:40 – 3 fried eggs with a whole bunch of roasted veggies.

12:00- went to specialty’s cafe with some old coworkers and I had the Cobb salad without bacon cheese and dressing.

This might be a little TMI, but I got diaherria! OUCH!

430- chicken breast for snack

630- roasted chicken with veggies. Also had 1 hard boiled egg.

Weigh In! – 09/23/2010

23 Sep

I weighed in this morning.  My weight is 115.6.  Not much of a movement, but I do feel less bloated, and seeing a little bit more definition.  The chubs around the abs are still annoying, and it’s still bigger than I want it to be.  I’m going to get Melatonin to see if it will help my sleep.

6:15 – Walked for 10 minutes on the treadmill, then worked on Back Squats.

10×45#, 10×65#, 10x 85#, 8×95#, 5×100#  I wasn’t sure what I was doing.  I didn’t feel much of a sweat, so I feel like I didn’t get a good workout.  I always second guess myself when I do JUST strength!  I feel like running on Saturday now.

8:45 – Breakfast: 3 fried eggs with roasted veggies.  There was lots of veggies.  I’m suppose to eat half an avocado, but I can’t finish it.  Maybe I’ll finish it later with lunch.

1:00 – Lunch: Beef patty with spinach salad.  Finished the avocado from this morning.  I didn’t put olive oil today.  Instead I replaced it with pico de gallo.

5:30 – Dinner:  Dinner was early tonight, because I was going to get hungry if I waited until 7 to eat.  I should of just waited.  I had about 85% of the chicken with roasted veggies.  Then after I put Mason to bed, I had 3 eggs and some pork from the braised pork dish that I made for Tran!  ICK!  I was definitely full.

Deadlift PR! – 09/22/2010

Metcon – 4 RFT of 22 wall balls(20# ball to 8/9 ft target), 11 Toes to Bar = 12:27

1:00PM – Lunch: Beef Burger Patty with Large Spinach Salad. 1/4 of an avocado
