    Official Day 1

    Kind of an awkward day since the job I was doing got changed around after after I got to the job site. Through my schedule off.


    Breakfast: Leftover Turkey chili (turkey, Hatch green chili, diced tomatoes, green beans and seasoning)

    Lunch: 2 scoops of Muscle Milk in water.

    In-Between: 2 packets of Emergen-C in purified water. Not the best stuff, but it's affordable and better than gatorade.

    Supper: Shrimp, 2 eggs, 2 jalapenos, 1 pkg of frozen broccoli in coconut milk & oil and some red curry paste.

    Not enough to meet my nutrient needs, but just one of those days.

    Plus, stress was particularly high today for some reason (bad anxiety) so my appetite wasn't great to begin with.

    However...this was a good day. Up earlier than usual and job went well.

        no "workout" today since i was on the road for work, but since i'm the commercial cleaning biz, there was a lot of mopping and lifting my buffers and such.

          Day 5 (yesterday)

          B: leftover turkey chili

          L: leftover chicken legs w/ "salad" (grated carrot, chopped celery, sauteed pecans and grated ginger)

          S: "Sushi" (shrimp, crab, salmon, avacado & lettuce wrapped in seaweed rice) and yellow tail sashimi dipped in spicy mayo

          It was Day #6 w/o drinking and was actually pretty tough since we always go out for UFC...that's usually the official beer and junk food night.

          No beer. No junk food (had the sushi instead). That was my first "major" hurdle for the 30 day challenge...and I passed with flying colors. lol

          Still not working out like I need to, though. Will be spending some time today outlining a schedule for myself...otherwise, I won't do anything most likely. I'm anal like that.

                Day 10

                So yeah...I haven't updated the last few days because...well, ok. No good reason.

                However, I have stuck my guns, thus far. No grains, processed, natural or otherwise (save for the 2 pints of beer last Sunday). Also, without consciously intending to do so...haven't had any dairy this week, except for some cream in a protein shake on Monday.

                I've gotten in 2 weight sessions this week. Deadlifts and overhead press on Tuesday. Barbell step-ups and a light barbell complex today. As well as, some rope jumping and sledgehammer work on Monday.

                Won't try to rehash all the meals I've had, but it's been more of the same. Lots of eggs, ground turkey, bacon and some ground beef (I's po' right now) along with whatever vegetables and fruit I can find cheaply.

                Today's meals, thus far:

                B: 1.5 turkey patties (from last night), 2 slices bacon and a handful of blueberries.

                P.W.O Snack: 4 slices of bacon and an apple (slim pickin's around here til we get paid again)

                So yeah...thanks for watching!
