So this morning was full of love....WOD- 500m Row, 20 burpees, suicides, 30 GHD's, 100M lunges, 3 rope climbs, 100M lunges, 30 GHD's, Suicides, 20 Burpees, 500m Row. Something like that my goodness I can't even remember the WOD :) Under 19 minutes and I was dying. I can feel the quads coming on from the thrusters on Wed. wonderful!!

5am-Egg Beaters, strawberries , almonds
7:30am-Same B-fast- tried not to eat so many blueberries
11:30am-Zoned chicken-still good the 2nd time around!
3:30pm-Applesauce, nuts, cheese
6:30pm-Stuffed Chicken with veggies again good the 2nd time around!
8:30pm-4 Shrimp, cheese and strawberries

So the past week I have been really stressed at work trying to handle 2 jobs until my replacement comes in, it's been effecting my sleep, my eating and my overall wellness. I have decided from today, I am not going to let it derail me anymore. I am taking control over my situation, and from today forward I'll be keeping on track! I just got home from work and it's 9:35pm YUCK! Didn't get to measure my snack so I'm sure it was more than a block. Although looking back today I didn't get really really hungry like I have been which is good. Not sure if it was b/c I was running all day or what.

Wednesday, July 30, 2008


This mornings WOD was 800M, 50 sit ups, 50 thrusters 45lbs bar, 800M run, 35 sit ups, 35 thrusters, 800M run 20, 20. Oh yeah it kicked my booty. I was pretty tired going in this morning and the calves are tight! It's always a challenge I tell you, but worth it in the end! Got on the scale not down anymore weight but hey still happy with my loss thus far YEAH!!

5am-Egg beaters, raspberries, almonds
8am-Oatmeal, eggs, applesauce, almonds, blueberries and turkey bacon
12:15pm- Turkey roll up, salad
3:40pm- 2 eggs with hummus
4:45pm-Zone Bar
6pm-1/2 zone bar
7:30pm-Chicken, with low carb catchup, 3 blocks of cooked veggies, 1 block raw with hummus while I was cooking, I also picked at a few things in the fridge.

Don't think I ate enough at lunch, feeling hungry! If I mess up with lunch I am just done for the day I tell you. I was hungry all afternoon, picking while I was cooking and could not decide what I wanted for dinner. I hate it when that happens I get so hungry that I want a little bit of everything. Didn't have the late night snack b/c I ate too much this afternoon.

Tuesday, July 29, 2008


So I decided to take the day off today YEAH! Worked on Sat. and again this Sat. so I am on tap to do nothing today! WOD was 9 power cleans 95 lbs, 12 box jumps-20 inch and 15 perfect push ups- 5 rounds for time. The only thing holding me back was the push ups. I totally get killed when it's body weight exercises, plus we had to hit the floor each rep which I'm not use to. It was much more challenging but I should have been practicing perfect form since the beginning. Some days are just easier than others. Sarah killed it with perfect form, that girl is tough!!

5am- Egg beaters, strawberries, almonds
8:30 am- Same packed b-fast but I was able to heat everything up so at home so it was much better!! Oatmeal, eggs, applesauce, blueberries, turkey bacon and slivered almonds
12:30pm-Turkey roll up, salad, veggies with hummus
4:15pm- 1 oz cheese, 1/2 apple and 3 almonds
7:30pm-Chicken Diablo
9:20pm-Blackberry Smoothie

Overall a great day. Got some stuff around the house done, took a nap and walked the diggity dog. Love days off!

Monday, July 28, 2008


Got back on track all day yesterday and am aiming for the same thing today. I can't wait until I am 100% back in the zone! WOD was 800m run, 500m row, 400 M run, 100 double unders, 200 M run. I was really happy with my double unders, much better than last time. Man when I can get a in rhythm all is good. I was getting sets of 8 or 10, I think 12 was my highest. Of course I had a 2, or 3 on a regular basis as well. I really would love to get it without the 2 hops in between but I'm just pumped that I'm getting better!

5am-Egg beaters, raspberries, 3 almonds
7:30am- 2/3 cup oatmeal, 1/3 cup applesauce, 1/2 cup blueberries, slivered almonds, 5.5 pieces of Turkey Bacon (3g per slice), 1/2 cup of egg beaters.--Totally full and really good!
11:30am- Wrap with Turkey and such, 1/2 of my salad
1pm-Rest of my salad
3:34p.m. Forgot to make a snack-so I grabbed a one block b-fast egg, raspberries, almonds
6:30pm- 4 oz chicken, steamed broccoli, asparagus, peppers, with nuts and cauliflower and hummus while I was cooking.
9pm- Raspberry Smoothie

Totally saved myself with lunch. There was a surprise b-day party for one of the residents. So I ate most of my lunch went to the event, drank water and when they brought everybody's food it was time for me to head back to work. PERFECT! I didn't get out of the zone, went back and ate the rest of my salad. NICE! Will not forget again about making the afternoon snack the night before. I am so sick of eggs right now :)

Back on the Wagon!

So woke up this morning and felt bloated. Decided to let yesterday go and hop back on the wagon! Did lots of shopping, which might have cause the downfall yesterday. I was totally out of zone friendly foods. So I stocked up and I'm ready for the week! Now I just have to make everything.

9:30-1/2 zone bar
11:45am-Egg beaters, mushrooms, pepper, tomato, salsa on a wrap, 1 block fruit salad with 2 tablespoons of slivered almonds.
3:35p.m.-Wrap with turkey, mustard, lettuce, tomatoes, veggies with hummus, fruit?
8pm- Wrap again, Salad, and some veggies

I can't really remember what all I ate yesterday b/c I am filling it in a day later. Although I know I stayed in the zone all day. Didn't have a late night snack but didn't want one. Only ate 13 blocks today, but I didn't work out and I slept in. I ended up taking 2 naps one after b-fast and one mid-afternoon. I guess my body was trying to tell me something!!!

Saturday, July 26, 2008


Yuck back to work again today. Up at 6:15 a.m. and just not wanting to get out of bed. I'm still really tired. I was in and out this morning on our Sanctuary tour. Not in the zone b/c I'm tired. After I ate lunch I feel more awake we'll see how I am for the rest of the day. My body probably just needs a good solid rest.

7am-Protein and water, 2 apples, 12 almonds
11:15 am- South Beach Lunch phase 1-ck and broccoli- apple, 1/2 zone bar
2:30- Dark chocolate zone bar
5:45pm-Totally out of the zone and ate everything non-zone! It was bad-pb with fluff on bread, crackers w/ fluff, diet Pepsi, Doritos some cheese and crackers--I know i told you it was bad.
8pm-a little fish, salad and 2 hush puppies-lots of beer
11:45 zone bar

I was totally out of control today. I was sooo tired, hungry and overwhelmed all day. This afternoon I went to my new office and was looking through the activities scheduled. It was a nightmare. I actually felt sick to my stomach that's how bad it was. So needless to say that's all I thought about and stewed over all night. Around 9:30pm I felt so sick and the only thing I wanted to do was go to bed. But we were at our friends party so I couldn't. All of the food I ate around 6pm caught up with me and I felt horrible! Learned that lesson the hard way, which is a good thing. My body is not use to eating like that and it totally lashed out at me. YUCK

Freaky Friday!

Ok so I am a little freaky, nutty, not normal when it comes to working out. I was so upset that I couldn't do FGB with the crew that I just had to ask coach if I could do it this morning. I emailed him yesterday and started preparing and visualizing in my mind how it would play out. I use to do this before my vball tournaments in college. Visualizing myself through each exercise, each round and then the reward at the end. Mentally psyching myself up is key for me! I've got to tell this morning was the most gratifying experience since I have been with crossfit. To hit a 305 in FGB is just unbelievable! I was wanting the 300 but didn't know if I could, and now that I've done it I am on cloud 9! I've got to give a shout out to the entire 6am crew that was there this morning. They were all cheering me on in the last round! Thanks for the love guys!!
The Zone really has changed me physically and mentally in a short period of time. Thanks Coach for that. But most importantly working out with Sarah over the past few months has really stepped up my game. I can not express in words how motivating it is to have a workout partner that never lets you give up. She's always pumping me up with positive feedback, good jobs, high fives you name it. She has pushed me to where I am today and I am so grateful that I found her! LOVE YOU GIRL, I WOULD NOT BE WHERE I AM TODAY WITH YOU!!

5am-Egg Beaters, applesauce, slivered almonds
7:30-1 cup egg beaters, Oatmeal, applesauce, almonds, a few blueberries
12:15pm-Stuffed Tomatoes, red peppers & cucumbers with a little dressing, apple with PB
3:30p.m. 1/2 a zone bar?
6pm- 1.5 tomatoes, cheese, 1 egg with hummus?
7:30- Turkey spinach wrap, mustard, cucumbers, lettuce, small salad, 1/2 apple, pb
9:15pm-Blueberry Smoothie

I can't really remember what I ate yesterday after lunch I was kind of out of it. FGB kicked my butt and I was like a ZOMBIE towards the end of the day. I think that's why I was so hungry. What I'm tired I tend to eat more.

Thursday, July 24, 2008


Did not fall asleep last night until almost 11pm. Tossed and turned. I had a lot of stuff running in my mind about work. This mornings WOD- 40 kbs, 800m run, 30 kbs, 400m run, 20 kbs, 200m run, 10 kbs. I used the 53lb KB and got done a little over 12 minutes. It was a nice push for sure.

5am- Egg beaters, blueberries, almonds
7:30am- Protein shake and water, oatmeal, 1/2 apple with PB, little bit of blueberries and blackberries, packed yogurt again, but did my best to stay away.
12:30pm-Out to lunch hard one! tomato basil soup, salmon, 1/2 a zucchini, 1/4 onion, 1.5 rolls-I didn't want the roll but knew I didn't have any carbs at lunch!
3pm-Small salad with almonds , little pb
4:15-sting cheese, 1.5 tomatoes with vinaigrette, little PB
7pm-6 asparagus, chicken, spinach salad with tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, little cauliflower, silvered almonds. few veggies with hummus while preparing dinner.

Wednesday, July 23, 2008


Today's WOD was 1,000m row, 50 front squats, 30 pull ups. I'll have to look my time. Did well but was rushing my pull ups and could not get into a consistent rhythm. Will work on resetting and taking a rest, form first. Rowing always kills me but 3:36? is awesome for 1,000m. I forgot my spoon this morning so I could not eat the rest of my breakfast until I got to work. FYI- I went to the Shy Wolf Sanctuary this morning for a site visit (we have our tour on Saturday, this is why I can't be at FGB). Anyways I fell in love with the place. For all of you animal lovers out there it is a must. Got wolf kisses and was able to go in a few of the cages, AMAZING!

5am-Egg beaters, blueberries, almonds
7:30am- Protein and water, Oatmeal
10:30am- Applesauce, blueberries, and slivered almonds
12:20pm-Big salad with Chicken and veggies, 2 eggs with hummus
3:30-Emergency snack-SB diet snack bar..Pretty close to one block
7:30pm-eggplant, chicken, sauce, Parmesan cheese, little spinach on bottom, asparagus, salad with veggies and nuts, 1/2 diet Pepsi, crystal light.-Overly full! yuck
9:30pm-1/2 apple, pb, 1 oz low fat cheese-Back in the Zone:)

Today was a really stressful day with work and things. On my way home from open gym I received more drama from work, got home and just stared eating. Bad I know. At least it was good things. Normally it would've been ice cream or something of that nature. It's a big step for me to realize how my mind works and cut it off before it's too late! That's why I dumped out 1/2 of the Diet Pepsi. Turning point! God I hate stress, I don't know what I would do if I didn't workout like a nut everyday. My long term goal is to break that cycle of stress=eating. It might take a while but I'll get there. OK enough personal internal challenges from me, I'm going to get on with my night and let this go...........................

Tuesday, July 22, 2008


So note to self: Every day I must roll the hips and Ice them down after workouts! Today my L leg is feeling darn good. I iced, stretched and hit the hot tub last night, what a difference a day makes. WOD was darn good. Diggin' the box jumps, haven't hit those in a while. Run 200M, 10 box jumps on the 24inch box, 10 KTE. 10 Rounds in 25 minutes. NICE. 1 mile walk for a little extra, what a beautiful sunrise this morning. Felt solid this morning-physically.

5am-Egg beaters, blueberries, almonds
7:30am-Protein in water almost all, 2/3 cup oatmeal, 1/2 apple, 1 cup strawberries, almonds and yogurt. Not sure what I was thinking when I pre-packed this meal but I was over so I didn't finish my protein shake but left a little yogurt at the end.
12:15 p.m.- Turkey roll up with cucumbers/tomatoes, small salad, few veggies-vinaigrette dressing
4pm- Blueberries, cottage cheese, 3 almonds-Rest of veggies from lunch
730pm-Turkey Chili, used 4 block on the meat and added a side salad for extra carbs.
9:20pm-Blackberry/Strawberry Smoothie

What a day! Still working on the hubby. He didn't even try the Chili but he got home at 8pm and wasn't that hungry so we'll give him that. He has been saying for the last few weeks that he's going to get to the gym and start working out again. I think I'm starting to rub off on him, YES! He's been going for a 20 minute nightly walk with the dog and I for the last 3 nights...So there is hope people! Now if I could only get him to eat a few veggies.

Eggplant Pizza-Pretty close to the lasagna- 2-4block servings
3 cups eggplant
6 oz. grilled chicken
2 oz of Cheese
2 and 2/3 teaspoon Olive Oil
1 cup Tomato Sauce
4 blocks of veggies

I mixed things up a bit and did 3 blocks of veggies- Zucchini, Squash, tomatoes, roasted red pepper, used non-fat Mozzarella cheese, and added 1/2 cup of tomato sauce to make up that other carb block. I broiled the egg plant for just a few minutes-used that at the base, added sauce chicken, veggies, more sauce and topped it with cheese and olive oil. Baked for 25-30 minutes at 350 and broiled it just for a few to get that extra crisp going. Soooo good! Since Chad doesn't like my new method of cooking I froze 1/2 for a later date....Sweet!

Monday, July 21, 2008


My L leg is still not doing well and it's moved more into my hip today as I ice it and stretch it at work. Pretty sure the heavy lifting today did not help the situation. Got up to 133lbs which was a PB but I wasn't that thrilled with it. I don't have the split jerk down and it's frustrating me. I've got to be faster with my pop b/c I know I strong enough, just don't have the technique yet. I like to "get" things right away. It'll come with time, practice and patience.

5am- 1/4 cup egg beater, 1/2 cup blueberry, 3 almonds
7:45am-Protein and water, 2/3 cup oatmeal, 1/3 cup applesauce, 1 cup strawberries, slivered almonds.
12:15-Spinach roll up with turkey, mustard, cucumbers, lettuce, veggies with hummus and a little vinaigrette dressing.
3pm-4 strawberries-instead of birthday cake-All my workers know I'm a little nutty so they didn't give me a hard time :)
4:45pm- 2 eggs with hummus, the rest of my veggies from lunch
7:30pm-Eggplant Pizza- Oh soooo good!
9pm- Strawberry smoothie

You know I'm really proud of myself with my cooking. Before I would never try 1/2 of these recipes. This actually came out great, it's pretty close to the Ck lasagna! Chad of course did not enjoy in the festivities of my yummy creation. Still trying to figure out something he could eat, he's totally a meat and potatoes kind of guy.....Ideas anyone?

Sunday, July 20, 2008


Could not sleep in this morning which was soooo disappointing. Woke up at 7am and just tossed and turned for about an hour before I actually got out of bed. My head was a little cloudy when I woke up, but I took the dog for a walk and after b-fast feel fine.

9am-3/4 cup egg beaters, fat free cheese, salsa, tiny bit of veggies, 3 block fruit salad with slivered almonds.
130pm-Spinach roll up with turkey, lettuce, mustard, cucumber and tomatoes, a little cauliflower and broccoli with hummus, 1 cup of strawberries with some slivered almonds.
4pm-probably 1/3 cup oatmeal, (I was cooking it for the week and that was the left over, oh so good nice and warm!)1/2 zone bar
6pm-Stuffed Chicken with spinach, cheese, peppers, squash & zucchini. Recipe from the book.
815pm-Strawberry Smoothie

Saturday, July 19, 2008


WOW that WOD was awesome! Lateral Burpees, wall balls, deadlifts, push press and a sprint. 3 rounds one minute at each station 1 min break between rounds. Kind of like a fight gone bad workout but a little different. J kicked ass and help me stay motivated to push through. It was tough in the heat. I'm use to working out at 6pm when it's not too hot out yet!!

845am- One hard boiled egg
9:30am- 1/4 cup egg beaters, 2/3 cup applesauce, 2 tsp slivered almonds
1130am-Zone bar
2pm- Stuffed tomatoes, blueberries, cauliflower, hummus
5pm- Cottage cheese, blueberries, 3 almonds
7:30pm- Chili's- 1/2 margarita ck, all shrimp but 2, double veggies, and a salad. 4 glasses of wine, that's right guys 4 glasses of wine. Oh so good. I guess I'm a light weight now b/c that's all I needed. WOW
9pm-Salad with oil and vinegar

Chili's was a lot fun last night. So glad we went to dinner at 7pm, filled up on good food, and then joined the festivities. Otherwise I'm sure I would've caved big time. It was pretty cool to see everyone again. They already miss Sarah and I in class which was kind of sad. You build relationships with people after a year you know. But I gotta do what's good for me, and I am totally headed down the right road with the new workouts and the zone. YEAH! I'm going home in a month so I am going to stay extremely dedication to my transformation until then. So watch out people!!

Friday, July 18, 2008


This has been a long week for me. Just draggin' on and on, yuck! WOD of the day was short and sweet 1.5 mile run timed. I came in just under 12 minutes which is awesome for me! YEAH. Would love to try and catch Kate someday, that girl kicks butt. Practiced my pull ups and am totally feeling better about my swing. FINALLY! I'm so happy, it really was killing my mo joe. Thanks Coach!

5am- 1/4 cup egg beaters, 1/4 applesauce, 1 tsp. slivered almonds
8am-Protein and water- on the drive in
9am-1 cup applesauce, 9 almonds
12pm- Stuffed Tomatoes, salad, some broccoli, 1/2 teaspoon of Pb
4pm 1/2 Zone dark chocolate bar, 1/2 cup grapes
7pm-Salad, salmon with a mango salsa, broccoli, 1 pretzel stick
10pm- Raspberry Smoothie

Went out to dinner at Bar Louie not for sure on the number of blocks but I did my best. They actually had a few good zone friendly choices. Didn't really crave the wine, so I didn't order it. Going out to Chili's tomorrow so I"m saving it for then!

Thursday, July 17, 2008


OH YEAH my last day of the 2 week cleanse, wine here I come :) Only had one cheat meal (the ribs) feeling good in the zone! Decided to try a new breakfast this morning. Seemed to work out pretty well. My hamstring on the L leg is still really sore almost like a pull. I'll try and ice and stretch that as much as possible today. WOD was a good one. KBS 21-18-15-12-9 and Burpees 9-12-15-18-21 with a 24k. OUCH! Not bad on time I think I was right under 13 minutes I'll have to double check that. I have noticed however a nice bruise on the back of my neck from yesterday's workout.

5:15am- 1/4 cup egg beaters, 1/4 applesauce, 3 almonds
9am- 1/2 cup egg beaters, 2 morning star patties, 2/3 cup oatmeal, 1 cup grapes, 6 almonds
12:15pm- 6 oz grouper, Nice size salad, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 cup raspberries
4pm- 2 eggs with hummus
6:45pm- Salad with veggies and almonds, 3 oz steak, little left over ck lasagna
8:45pm- Raspberry Smoothie

I keep getting tired between 4-6 I feel like I fall out of the zone before my afternoon snack and then it takes me a little bit to get back in it. I am fine after dinner and until I go to bed. It's just that window when I get tired. I'm going to start playing with my blocks next week unless it gets better. It seems to be happening almost everyday.

Hump Day :)

It's half way into my first week at the new gym and I'm lovin' it. Everyone has welcomed us with open arms and really made me feel at home. Thanks guys! This mornings WOD was again a killer! I was sore and cranky from the Hypers (hamstrings ouch!) and the CnJ (traps) yesterday. It was ASRAP in 20 min. of 400 m run and 25 squat jump with 45lbs. 6 rounds later I about fell over on the last squat jump. I jumped out instead of up and almost lost it. No worries though I held it together or Sarah would've been in trouble :)

5:15am-Cottage cheese, blueberries, 3 almonds
9am-3/4 cup egg beaters, 1 oz low fat cheese, 2/3 cup oatmeal, 1 cup grapes, 12 almonds
12pm- Stuffed tomatoes, broccoli with hummus, 1 cup raspberries, 1/2 cup pineapple-totally full!
4pm-Cottage cheese, blackberries, 3 almonds
6:30pm-6 oz grouper, salad with zone dressing, 2 cups of cauliflower with hummus
830-Raspberry Smoothie

Feel pretty full and actually a little heavy/bloated. Not sure if I'm eating too much or what. I will take a mental note and see how I feel tomorrow. Honestly it could be the weather. When it's rainy I kind of feel like blahhh.

Tuesday, July 15, 2008


Rain again, yuck! The rain always makes me tired and sleepy. I just want to put my pj's on and crawl back into bed. But that wasn't the WOD of the day :) 5 rounds of 1 min. rower, 10 clean n jerk @95lbs and 30 mountain climbers on each leg. The CnJ's started catching up to me at the end but I pushed though! Must have been all of the ribs I ate last night:) WOW, I can for sure tell a difference in how I feel with the food I eat. Almost to my 2 week cleanse and can't wait for a glass of wine this weekend! YEAH!

515am-Cottage cheese, grapes, 3 almonds
9am-1/2 cup egg beaters, 2 morning star patties, 2/3 cup oatmeal w/Cinnamon, 1/2 cup grapes and just 6 almonds. (the patties have some fat so I counted that)
12:30pm- 6 oz of shrimp, salad, 12 almonds
4pm-Cottage cheese, grapes, 3 almonds
6pm-Cottage cheese, pineapple, 3 almonds
8:15pm-Chicken Lasagna

GMG the chicken lasagna was delicious! Chad however had another opinion :( I'm still working on him, I was happy he just tasted the darn thing. I for sure recommend that for future meals. I got home at 6pm and new dinner was going to be a while so I had a 2nd snack. Although boring it was all ready prepacked so I just snagged it out of the fridge and took the edge off while I cooked and prepared a few lunches for the week. I am now totally stuffed and in a happy place!!

Monday, July 14, 2008

It's Monday again

I can't believe it's Monday again! WOD wasn't bad- 5 rope climbs, 400 Meters of lunges, 75 GHD sit ups and 75 hypers. One mile run for a little extra. I'm really happy with my rope climbing abilities. Just 2 weeks ago I was scared to go up the darn thing now it's like nothing :) Did a one block snack before the workout and it seemed to be just fine.

5:15am-Cottage cheese, grapes and 3 almonds
8:45am-1 cups egg beaters, 2/3 cup oatmeal, 1 cup grapes, 12 almonds
12:15pm- Flat roll up-low carb spinach, turkey, lettuce, cucumber and mustard, salad with Zone dressing.
4pm-Cottage cheese, grapes and 3 almonds
7:30pm-4 FATTY ribs, Big salad, 1-1.5 block of shrimp scampi (guessing)and diet Pepsi
9pm-Blueberry smoothie

Ok so the ribs were for sure a CHEAT and I felt so guilty and full after but damn if they weren't the best ribs I have ever eaten! Decided that I needed to get right back in the zone or else I would be in trouble. See I'm a "snowballer" as Stacy and I call it and I can admit it! So I wasn't hungry but decided I would have a smoothie to keep me in the zone all night. We'll see how I feel in the morning.

Sunday, July 13, 2008


Slept in this morning for a change which was fantastic! My body is still tied though. I made my breakfast and snacks for the week and packaged up. This is the only way I can stay in the zone during the work week. It's a lot of work and prep time but worth it.

930am- 1/3 zone bar
11am-2/3 cup oatmeal with Cinnamon, 1 cup grapes with 6 almonds, 2 morning star patties, 1/2 cup egg beaters
230pm-2 tomatoes stuffed with chicken, broccoli and low-fat mayo, 1.5 cups of broccoli with hummus, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup pineapple
6:30pm-Shrimp Scampi with Broccoli and green peppers, 2 block fruit salad
8:30pm-Blackberry Smoothie

I can't believe it's already Sunday night and the work week is right around the corner. Weekends just aren't long enough!

Saturday, July 12, 2008


So I got up at 5:30am this morning and my muscles were just not recovered. You know when you lay in bed and are like ummm I'm not rested yet and fall back to sleep? Yeah that's what I wanted to do this morning after killing myself yesterday. But I couldn't b/c I played in a vball tournament. Here's how I did on a banged up body...

6:30am-3/4 cup egg beaters, 1 slice of cheese, 2 slices of bread, squirt of low carb catchup
10:30am-1 stuffed tomato, 1/2 apple, 3 almonds
12pm-1 stuffed tomato, 1/2 apple, 3 almonds
2:30pm-1 apple, a few almonds
4:30pm-Fruit salad, a few almonds, 2 taste tests of a flat bread roll up with pb, banana, jelly and granola
6:30pm- 1 South Beach meal replacement bar, 1/2 apple
8:30pm-4 oz chicken, salad, broccoli with hummus, diet soda

So coach was right I didn't need the heed or recoverite and the food was enough energy to last me throughout the tournament-Good Call!! My energy level was consistent and I played well throughout the day! The only thing was I didn't bring enough food especially protein to last. That's why I grabbed the roll ups and the SB bar. I can't wait for my day of rest tomorrow I for sure need it!

Friday, July 11, 2008

Friday :)

WOD was killer. I think we ended up doing a total of 120 burpees, 20 thrusters, 60 wall balls, 100 sdlhp with 50 lbs. WOW I thought i was going to pass out in the 3rd round. Got very light headed and didn't feel so good. Pushed my way through it thanks to "The Machine" AKA Hip kitty. Glad she's back to kick my butt-thanks girl!

5am-1/2 zone bar
830am-1 scoop Isopure chocolate with water, cottage cheese, apple sauce, oatmeal and slivered almonds

Still sore but getting better, the R hand is still a mess from pull ups. Tried Annie today and messed that up! My bad I missed the last round of 10. I suck. Feel pretty stupid and guilty about it, but it was an honest mistake, didn't realize it until I starting looking at other people's blogs!! Sorry guys! Did double unders which was different. Haven't done those in a while. Once you get into a rhythm it goes pretty well. I'd like to be able to do it without the 2 hops in between but it'll come with time.

5am-Zone bar
9am-Same breakfast-oatmeal, applesauce, cottage cheese, turkey bacon, almonds-I made enough for the whole week and packaged them up.
12:15pm-2 blocks of the Turkey Chili, 2 block salad with almonds
4pm-2 eggs with hummus and the rest of my salad from lunch
6:45pm-4 oz chicken, 1.5 cups of spinach, red pepper and cauliflower, hummus and small fruit salad
845pm-Strawberry smoothie- I am in love with this snack :)

Still feel bad about Angie, wanted to go back and just do it over! Been thinking about it all day. GOSH! Next time I'll just have to kill it. I was really tired this afternoon on the way home between 5-6pm. This has been happening lately. Not sure why.

Pretty sore from yesterday! My quads are stiff as all get out. I haven't done that many squats since before I hurt my hip, which was like 2 months ago. By the way I am almost back to normal with the hip/hips situation. They are tight but 85% healed! I am getting back to my old self and lovin' it! WOD was a lot of cardio and a good sweat, hopped on the bike for 25 minutes for a little extra.

Thursday, July 3
So I have done my reading and am pushing forward on starting the zone next week. My goal over the next few days is to figure my blocks out and be ready for Monday. This is what I've eaten today....

5am 1/2 Zone Bar
8am 1 scoop Isopure Protein shake mix, 12 almonds, 1/2 Apple
12pm Salad, 4 oz Lobster, 12 almonds, 1/2 apple
3:30 p.m. Raw veggies, 1 oz low fat cheese, veggies dip, 7 turkey pepperoni slices
7pm Salad, 3 oz lobster, 1 oz chicken, 12 almonds, 1 oz cheese, low fat dressing, diet soda

Felt really tired and out of it around 3pm. I am getting closer to the 4 block meal but not there yet. I need to figure something out for breakfast, since I will be eating it in the car. It will take me a lot of prep time to make my meals for the week so I don't get off track. Sunday is going to have to be the day for that. I know, no diet soda, but I have to get it out of the house by Monday right?
