Feelin' good

Hi! So, just here to answer some of the questions Sheen asked.

- I do notice changes in my appetite. I am hungrier, but when I do eat I get full easier? Does that make any sense? Well, that's what happens. Also, I don't crave the stuff that I usually would crave either! I'm glad I got over that sweets phase.

- Now that you mention it, I do feel like my metabolism is speeding up. I put on weight easily, but these past 3 weeks haven't been so bad even on the days I slipped with Paleo or just simply over ate.

- Going into this challenge I thought I wasn't going to make it, but I tried and it really is not that bad. It's not bad at all. I like eating this way and get excited about trying new recipes! I have never cooked so much for myself ... ever.

- Yes, I feel different. I have a better attitude and have a new perspective on things including my life/future.

- Ever since I came back into the gym and started eating this way my energy has come back to me! I can't remember the last time I took a nap. I sleep better and feel like my performance is improving.

- I have noticed that my body is changing. It's kinda cool to be able to see that in such a short amount of time. Can't wait to see my progress in a few months from now!

- Oh you know it! I am happy! Life is good :)

Sorry if that was boring, haha! Keep it up ya'll!

3rd Week!

Hey guys!

We're in the 3rd week of the challenge. How is everyone doing? I'd like to know more about how you are feeling. Seeing what you eat is interesting and it gives me ideas on what to make myself but let's get more detailed here. You can post in the comments or post your on post and be sure to add in the detail on what % you're at. Here are some questions to throw out there:
  • Have you noticed any changes in your appetite?
  • Do you feel your metabolism has changed at all?
  • Is this a hard challenge?
  • Do you feel different?
  • How is your activity level? Energy level? Fitness increase/decrease/same?
  • Have you paid attention to how you look?
  • Are you happy? (haha)
Feel free to add anything else you'd like to share. We are almost done with the month! Does anybody else feel like it's gone kind of fast, but kind of slow at the same time?

SC Day 11

08:45am: 4 pieces pineapple, cherry pie Larabar

10:00pm: made two egg omelet w/left over meat from Rancho Bravo and tomatoes but ended up only eating half of it. Oolong tea. Fish oil.

After tonight's WOD, I didn't feel hungry at all. Usually my appetite is there after a workout, especially after lifting but tonight I wasn't that hungry. I got home, showered, got a little hungry, then it kind of went away after I had got done cooking. Kind of weird, but not at the same time. Just thought I'd share!

PS - congrats to everyone who PRed today. It's great to see you all improve!

Just want to end with saying that I am feeling really good and I am having less temptations. From these 9 days I have already made the decision that I want to continue living this active and healthy lifestyle past February. I want to make it my goal to eat Paleo so it is just natural and not something I have to think about. It really is the way to eat and I want to make it part of my lifestyle. Keep it up everyone! We are doing awesome :)

General Announcement

Way to go on the first week everyone!  Thanks for being so consistent with your posting!

If you haven't already given your $20 to Andrew, do so by the end of the week!  Thanks!

Tip of the week:
If you are hungry post workout and don't have anything lined up to eat.  Take my advice and go to Rancho Bravo - get their "rice and bean bowl" w/ asada steak and gaucamole and veggies, sans rice and beans (and cheese if you are no-dairy).  Eat it up, but save a little for the morning and add to your eggs for breakfast with some of their house made salsa.  Holy shit - deliciousness!

Weekend Foodstuffs

FRI 5 FEB 2010
(I'm pretty sure I was thinking about fasting today, but then I got hungry after the stupid workout.)

WOD
"Linda" aka "Three Bars of Death"
10/9/8/7/6/5/4/3/2/1
Deadlift 1.5 BW [100kg]
Bench Press BW [55kg]
Power Clean 3/4 BW [61kg (rx'd)]
[27:xx] I can't remember exactly my time.

That sucked, but I mainly focused on form and took some time to try and get things right.

Nutrition
1830: 1 small Primal Pak, 2000mg salmon oil
2000: 3 scrambled eggs, 4 or 5 slices of turkey deli meat, about 3oz smoked salmon, water
2100: 2 little oranges, 10 or so almonds, another oz of salmon

MOMENT OF WEAKNESS: I picked up a french fry, looked at it, closed my eyes, took a bite, chewed once, realized my error, regrouped myself, sighed, and spit it out. Yea, I know. "Some starch." But I'll save my starch for something that isn't deep fried and oversalted (like a carrot, maybe).


SAT 6 FEB 2010
From 1030 til 2000: I was working on this big thing of smoked salmon from Costco or Sam's club. It was the big ass foot and a half long thing, and I got about halfway done with it. I probably had around 20 or so almonds, and 2 bananas throughout the day too. LAZY ASS DAY. Hella just marinated at home.
2100: 10 or so slices of bacon that I individually wrapped in Romaine lettuce with mayo. Hella low budget. Hella quick. Hella good.
2200: large thing of chicken breast sauteed in onions, orange, red, and green bell peppers, and some sort of curry sauce
0100: 1 large fuji apple, maybe around 6 more slices of bacon, water

SUN 7 FEB 2010
(Tried to combat the fact that I was working on Superbowl by doing an IF. That, and I was too busy at work to eat lunch.)

1800: 3 peices of baked chicken breast with this lemon, caper, buttery sauce on it, and about 7 or 8 sticks of asparagus, handful of grapes
1930: lechon baboy (roasted pig) and 2 large oranges
2300: more lechon baboy and 2 more oranges

Summary of the weekend: pretty decent. I wanted to eat out a couple times, but I knew it was probably paleo-safer to just forage through my house for food. Saturday was tough because it was the FIRST day in MONTHS that I did NOTHING all day. I even got to take a 3 hour nap! What a great day. Friday was pretty difficult too because I bought a bunch of 5 Guys bacon cheeseburgers for everyone in my family, but I decided to pass on it. I didn't want the temptation of the fries if I were to devour my burger. SELF-CONTROL! What I learned is that I need to start decreasing my fruits a bit, and start upping up my veggies. Fruits have been satisfying my sweet tooth, but I think it has been too much. Goal for this week: MORE VEGGIES!!

SC Day 5

11:30am: left over pork pepperonata, about 1/4 cup & 1 tangerine
12:30pm: left over garlic chicken tenders
03:00pm: 10 green grapes
06:00pm: mixed green salad (w/red & yellow peppers, tomato(s) cucumbers), Korean bulgogi skirt steak, more cucumbers & green tea from Dragonfish Cafe
09:30pm: 4 pieces of roasted banana bites

A quick recipe I got from MTM to fulfill the sweet tooth - Roasted Tropical Banana Bites.


Serves 2-4 - Ingredients:
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp butter or vegan substitute
  • 1 tsp lime juice (you could also use lemon)
I didn't get a chance to get shredded coconut so I didn't use that. Also did not use brown sugar. Next time I want to try it with shredded coconut .. not really a fan of coconut but I'm trying to expand my palate. Anyway, decided to try it out with unsweetened cocoa (so I basically used bananas, cinnamon, cocoa, butter, lime juice).

Preparation: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Halve bananas length-wise and then into bite size pieces and place on a non-stick baking sheet. Sprinkle with brown sugar and coconut, then sprinkle liberally with cinnamon. Squeeze lime over everything. Add a small dot of butter to each bite. Roast for 5 minutes, then turn off oven and broil for 2-3 minutes (or until tops of bananas are golden and bubbly).

Really simple recipe! The cocoa didn't melt into the bananas like I thought it would (though the cinnamon did really easily) so maybe I put more than I should've . . or didn't put enough lemon juice on 'em. I'll have to experiment with these again later but overall I thought they were tasty.

DAY 4

WOD:
5k row for time
[20:03]

+ muscle up progression, and tire flips

I love how you get to race on the new rowers!

Nutrition:
0845: 2 chicken, spinach, asiago cheese sausages (BOMB!)
0940: 4 or 5 large strawberries
1200: 1 peice of buffalo jerky, 1 LaraBar (Pecan Pie), 2000mg salmon oil, 1oz apple chips
1230: 1 large fuji apple, 10-15 wasabi almonds, 3 peices of buffalo jerky
1530: 3oz apple chips, 2000mg salmon oil
1730: 4oz sirloin steak, 1/2 cup steamed cauliflower, 1 cup of steamed brussel sprouts, water
2030: 1 large primal pak, water
2200: 3 peices of chicken (with the skin on!! woo hoo!), 1 chicken sausage, water
2300: 2 large oranges

It really looks like I ate a lot today. But, in an effort to be as accurate as possible, I am trying to record all time times that I eat too. I could have just bunched it all up into breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but I think separating it all out provides a clearer picture of my eating habits throughout my day. As you can see, I am a grazer. I eat fairly smaller meals throughout the day. I don't intend to. I just eat when I'm hungry, and til I'm full. Just like Grok back in his day -- eat when the food is available and when you are hungry. I'm trying not to eat habitually. Kinda the idea with IF too. This is the easiest "diet" in the world. Just need to bump up the veggies though, and I should be good.

peej day 4

1200 - 12 oz. americano.
1230 - Omelette. 3 eggs, spinach, chopped onion, garlic salt. Pint of water.
1500 - 1 cup of snap peas, two pieces of turkey breast (deli cut). 12 oz. americano.
1800 - Garlic salmon salad. 6 oz. salmon fillet sliced, spinach, olive oil, garlic salt, some shredded cheese. Pint of water
2000 - 1 potato chip (Yes only 1! Ask Missy!) 1 piece of turkey breast, 1/2 a tangerine. Pint of water.

I feel like I didn’t eat too much today but I didn’t feel very hungry in between meals. No WOD today. My arm is feeling so much better! Not at full ROM but getting there. It really does feel like a bee stung me. I also grabbed a copy of The Paleo Diet so I’ll be reading up on that and hopefully trying out some of the recipes!

I had a question about the article Margaret posted. I don’t want to lose a lot of weight but I’m not trying to gain serious muscle mass either. Does it matter when you choose to sleep after you eat your last meal of the day?

How are you guys holding up? Whoever said the first week was tough, was right. Eating healthy is easy. It's the wanting of the "bad" good food and not getting it that's hard! Hopefully next week I'll stop craving ice cream. :) Keep it up!
