  • Tuesday:

    9 hours of sleep. Skipped breakfast and did 3 10-sec sprints down the road. Then walked a mile. Ate lunch of seared lamb neck bones and some kabocha squash, and of course some chocolate chips (this Guittard stuff is really good!). Walked around for another 3.5 miles around a lake in the rain with some friends for Christmas. Dinner was 12 oz wild shrimp and more squash. Also tried to bake a custard thing with just pumpkin puree and coconut flour and chocolate chips, which ended in failure. Oh well. Calories 2300.

    • X2 on starchy food = painful gas and irreconcileable trips to the porcelain palace. I've stayed away from the complex starches as found in potato and sweet potato and am having okay luck with simply eating more apples and about two bananas a day. I just thought since we seem to be similar, I'd share.

      • Thank you! I don't know what to do about glycogen replenishment though - I've started eating a lot of rice, which I think helps with that and the digestion bit too. But I've found that I get less painful movements when I've added a bunch of other stuff along with the starch, including vegetables, fats, and meat.

        • Wednesday:

          6.5-7 hours of sleep. Breakfast was about 1/2 lb wild shrimp and a large potato. Lunch was 1 lb wild shrimp and 1/2 lb potatoes. Snacked on kombucha, some sheeps milk yogurt, and coconut chips. Walked around about 2 miles. Then gym.

          Squats: 45x1x5, 95x1x5, 135x1x5, 165x1x5, 170x2x5
          OHP: 45x1x5, 65x1x5, 75x1x5, 75x1x2, 70x1x3, 70x1x5
          Deadlift: 135x1x5, 185x1x5, 235x1x1, 245x1x1

          Dinner was 1/4 lb potatoes, 1 lb purple sweet potatoes, 1/2 lb spinach, 3/4 lb wild shrimp, and the rest of my chocolate chips, and ended eating at 7! Calories 2550. And I don't want to see anymore chocolate for the next MONTH

          I'm eating a lot of wild shrimp to get rid of this 5 lb frozen block. I thought I could defrost it little by little, but it ended up fruitless. $6/lb was still a steal, though. It's worth it, even if I have to eat it in 2-3 days.

          Going to try going back to just potatoes after the new year. Going to spend some time at a friend's house, and they have a lot of SACD (Standard American Chinese Diet) food. Hopefully they respect my gluten-free-ness and I can just eat lamb meat the entire time I'm there.

                • Hmmmm I regret deleting that incriminating picture of me standing in front of a mirror in my underwear to pose for a comparison pic in the future. I now have nothing to compare against. OH WELL.

                    • Sunday:

                      8 hours of sleep. Kumquats, eggs, and wildberry trail mix for breakfast. I think the kumquats upset my stomach because it hurt for an hour before stopping. Lunch was hot pot in MSG soup, with lamb, fish, shrimp, mushrooms, and spinach. Sprinted down the street a few times, and did several rounds of crunches and bicycles. Felt nauseous afterward? O_o From the food. Dinner was kale chips, coconut kale soup with fish, and assorted vegetable dishes sauteed in olive oil. Calories 3100.

                        • Tuesday:

                          Squat: 45x1x5, 95x1x5, 135x1x5, 170x3x5 (last set had a 30 sec rest in between 3rd and 4th rep)
                          OHP: 45x1x5, 65x1x5, 75x3x5 (last set had 30 sec rest in between 3rd and 4th rep)

And dinner was an apple, 4 fried pastured eggs with stir fried rainbow chard, and some purple sweet potatoes. Then I had 12 Lindor truffles. At least they're gone now............3350 calories.

                              • Friday:

                                6.5 hours of sleep. No breakfast, but had a midmorning snack of kombucha and a few pieces of chocolate truffles. Walked around 3 miles. Lunch was 3/4 lb ground beef sauteed with 1/2 lb chard. Went to the gym.

                                Front squat: 45x1x5, 95x1x5, 105x1x5, 130x3x5 (last set needed a half minute of rest in between reps)
                                Bench: 45x1x5, 95x1x5, 105x1x5 (rest in between reps), 100x2x5
                                Snatch: 45x1x5, 65x1x5

                                I think I screwed up my form for the snatch because it keeps getting caught on my thigh now. I think I use the deadlift form now on my snatches, which is why they haven't grown in a while. Also, I think something is wrong with my rotator cuff because when I get into the final position for the snatch, my shoulder hurts, as well as when I do anything OHP. I think my numbness I inquired on the boards about the week prior is related. I think I was just careless for 2 weeks in a row when I used to the shitty bar that has really loose sides, so the weights on the side roll around really easily and it's difficult to balance sometimes.

                                Anyway, dinner was 2/3 cup rice, some kimchi, 3/4 lb kale chips with olive oil, a pollock fillet, and a large sweet potato, about 1/2 lb. Calories 2400.


                                Still emotionally unstable apparently. For some odd reason I broke down during my new fellowship last night and I realized that it's both a) time of the month and b) I kind of hate my life right now. Especially when I can't get the flow with people at work. I'll get over everything eventually but it didn't help that my ex had to be such a jerk to me over the holidays :\
