Hello Jello Legs

6 Mar

As I stand here after today’s workout, my thighs are screaming and want to be ripped out of my jeans. LOL. Yes, it was that good.

Before I go into what we did at CFPA today, let’s get into what I’ve been eating. Yesterday were rest day macros, and I started to feel hungry around 3-5pm. I didn’t eat anything because I didn’t really plan to have a snack. I just sucked it up and at this plate for dinner around 6.

After the workout this morning, I wasn’t feeling particularly hungry until 11. I made a big crab salad(12oz) with some spinach and bell peppers. I bought a small salad to go with my crab meat, and had a side of roasted potatoes.

It was a lot of food, and I haven’t finished it yet. Saving the rest of the crab salad for later.

In other news, it’s slowly ticking down to 5pm on the west coast, waiting for the CrossFit Open WOD to be announced. Of course, CrossFit headquarters has been using social media to get everyone excited. They even had a picture of a rower, barbell, and box to hint at the WOD. Sounds like Christine to me, but I doubt it. How are you going to weight everyone, get their BW, and make sure their deadlifts are their BW. OR, maybe they skip the BW part, and just go with set numbers. Who knows…we’ll see!

Onto today’s workout…

Strength:

Front Squats(E3M) 83#(5)-103#(5)-113#(5)-123#(5)-133#(5)

WOD:

1) 400 M Run – 1:35

2) 5 RFT: 10/10 DB Hang Snatch(45#/30#), 20 Air Squats – 8:58 RX’d

3) 400 M Run – 2:19

Extras:

Deadlifts(5×8): 115#-165#-185#-185#-165#

3×10 Superset of Barbell Bent Row(65#) & Push Ups

Ya, that workout was brutal. The snatches were a bit awkward for me because I didn’t want to damage my neck any further. I could tell my shoulders weren’t opening up as much as they should of when I snatched the db back. The last run was just brutal.

Once I got to work to do deadlifts, I was exhausted. The deadlifts did not help my neck at all. I lowered the weight on the last set to be on the safe side, and it helped. I’m glad I got through the session.

My neck is doing better, just still very tight in the morning. I gotta remember to stretch and massage it as much as I can. I need to be in tip top shape for Saturday. πŸ™‚

08/25 and 08/26 – Weekend Good Eats

26 Aug

Here’s some food that I ate two weeks ago! I went to a baby shower at a Nail Salon. We got to relax, get our nails did, and enjoy GF time. Love my girls.

I didn’t take many pics of what I ate. I just remember I ate clean except for the alcohol that I consumed at the shower. πŸ™‚

26 Aug

Since my workout wasn’t very strength intensive, I decided to eat my low carb meals instead. Unfortunately, once I got to my desk I was busy off the bat and couldn’t eat anything. I went to Dish Dash for lunch and got a chicken Mediterranean salad. It was delicious and exactly what I needed.

Around 3, I had some steak and braised kale.

For dinner, I broiled some salmon with gravy and green beans. There’s some chicken on the plate but that was for lil’ munchkin’

I started off with a 45 minute walk uphill on the treadmill. Within the walk, I had a 10 minute uphill sprint. 30 sec on, 45 sec off x8. Killer.

Eggs, cauliflower rice, and steak. Best breakfast ever, but still hungry!

20120824-080736.jpg

Ate again around 10:30. Ground beef with cauliflower.

20120824-080743.jpg

I almost skipped out of YOGA, but I’m so glad I went. Felt good, but hurt too. Shoulders are super super tight. It was a great time to relax, unwind, and take a nap.

20120824-080752.jpg
Mid-afternoon snack was some chicken breast, 3 strips of sirloin and cabbage. I got home and had 2 Paleo Stix.

20120824-080757.jpg

Dinner was salmon with braised kale and carrots. I didn’t eat all the salmon or the chicken beneath it. Chicken was for lil’ AMRAP. Ended the night with 1oz of macadamia nuts. Almost ate more, but went upstairs to go to bed instead. PHEW!

Since I’m behind on blogging my eats, let’s just do a recap in pictures because I don’t think I had anything extra today. πŸ™‚ That means it was a good day.

20120823-065736.jpg

This is sauerkraut, if you don’t know!

20120823-065742.jpg

Oooh, during lunch we had a BBQ so I can fatty ribs and chicken. Plus a side of fruit. The ribs were small, chicken was small…BORING BBQ. Still hungry!

Steak and veggies

20120823-065748.jpg

Chicken breast and veggies. Yes, it’s on a superman plate because I was sharing with Lil’ Munchkin’.

22 Aug

I strolled out of bed at 5:30 and went for my 40 minute walk. No extra activity today, just walking walking walking.

Once I got to work, I ate my eggs and egg whites with roasted cabbage, cauliflower rice, and avocado.

Lunch was a bit late because I went to Costco to pick up some necessities. My friend and I ate at Bamboo Leaf on a whim. I ordered the grilled pork and shrimp(sans noodles), extra lettuce. Yummy! I’m sure glad I can enjoy my Vietnamese food without the gluten.

That bowl wasn’t really big enough. I had my 3rd meal around 3ish. Ground beef and cauliflower rice. So satisfying.

When I got home, I had to figure out what to do with all the seafood and meat I got. I bought a tray of Ahi, and was going to sear it. Then I thought of Hawaii and how we had Ahi Poke almost everyday. DUH STEPH! Why not make Ahi Poke! I mixed together some Coconut Aminos, Coconut Vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes. I cut up the avocado, green onions, and ahi. Mixed everything together, and you have Ahi Poke. Nom Nom!

I had a small serving plus my dinner which was pressure cooker chicken with green beans.

My fat serving was macadamia nuts. That’s all folks. Super simple, super easy. Back on the clean eating train!

08/18-08/19 Weekend Recap

21 Aug

Aaah the weekend. I love it yet it’s so tiring. Trying to fit in family activities, personal activities, while getting prepared for the week ahead is hectic. But it beats just sitting around the coach, being a lazy butt, and watching TV. I miss those days. πŸ˜‰ Sometimes!

I was able to go to Catalyst Athletics for their open session weightlifting class. Fitbomb and K came along, so it was cool just to hang out, lift, and learn. We worked on snatches(squat snatches). I have no clue what weight I did. It was light, and I was too intimidated to put on more weight. Lots of good tips thought.

20120821-082104.jpg

An hour before I lifted I ate my breakfast.

20120821-082056.jpg

I came home and cooked more food because I was HUNGRY!.
20120821-082110.jpg

Hubby and I had a dinner date at Espetus. It’s been a long time coming, so we finally got to eat without being rushed to get out of the restaurant. Everything was soooo good! I had lots of sirloin, beef wrapped in bacon, chicken wrapped in bacon, chicken hearts, grilled shrimp, grilled pineapple, and beef ribs. Yup, that’s them cutting beef ribs right in front of our face.

20120821-082125.jpg

Here’s one of my plates with grilled eggplant and grilled zucchini.

20120821-082116.jpg
I stayed gluten free on our date. PHEW!

Here’s what I ate on Sunday. I honestly had no time to cook breakfast and lunch. I had my greens and basically fasted until 4PM. When we finally had time for ourselves, we headed to The Counter, and I got a bison burger bowl with a fried egg and avocado.

20120821-082136.jpg

Then when I came home, I had a couple of these suckers. Fresh broiled sardines. Nom.

20120821-082142.jpg

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and is prepared with good eats for the week. Stay focused!

18 Aug

Today was my off Friday but we didn’t do anything exciting because I Lil’ Munchkin’ came down with a fever last night. It’s a mild fever, but we wanted to play it safe and keep him inside. Too bad because the weather was beautiful.

Food was simple and good.

For breakfast, I had an 8 egg white omelet with veggies, sweet potatoes, and a cup of blueberries.

I got hungry around 11:30 and had a flank steak with broccoli and carrots.

I had a chicken breast salad around 4 which I forgot to take a picture of.

One of our friends came over and we ordered a couple pounds of shrimp from this cajun place. I had a few shrimp with this bowl of flank and veggies. I didn’t add any other fat because the shrimp was covered in garlic and butter. I didn’t suck on the shell, so once I peeled it, most of the sauce was gone. Trying to limit fat on workout days.

Day 57 of 100 Day Push Up Challenge done. I’m going to Catalyst to their weightlifting session tomorrow. Hopefully I can learn a few more things!

17 Aug

Today’s my virtual Friday, so I wanted to get into work early, walk on the treadmill for a bit and do work.

I did speed intervals at 9.0 mph for 8 rounds, 30 secs on 90 seconds off. Then I walked uphill the rest of the time until 45 minutes hit. I practiced double unders after and did my 56 push ups for the day. I’m glad I finished and was ready to get to work. I walked into the locker room and realized…I FORGOT MY FREAKIN’ SHOES! Argh. Wednesday I forgot my tennis shoes, today I forgot my shoe shoes! Dammit. So much for getting into work early. I showered, changed, and drove back home to get my sandals. Sigh. At least I finished my workout right?!

Here’s how I ate for the day.

Breakfast was egg whites plus 2 eggs covered in veggies.

20120817-042155.jpg

Lunch was 4oz of rib eye steak with cabbage slaw.
20120817-042203.jpg

I scarfed down my 3rd meal right before I left work to attend Lil’ Munchkin’s Luau at school. Salmon and green beans.

20120817-042213.jpg

Dinner was a flank steak salad with 1/4 of an avocado.
20120817-042220.jpg

Keepin’ it simple and easy today. Hopefully tomorrow and the weekend will be the same. πŸ™‚
