  • Tuesday:

    8 hours of sleep. Felt congested again, even though it cleared yesterday. Not sure why. Breakfast was 2 eggs and 2 egg whites. Had an early morning snack of a truffle. Lunch was pork. Drank jasmine green tea. Walked about 2.5 miles. Ate chocolate covered cacao nibs for a snack later. Went to the gym, and beforehand was getting really hungry O_o

    Front squat: 65x5, 95x5, 115x5, 135x5
    Back squat: 140x1
    Deadlift: 135x5, 185x5, 225x3, fail @245, 235x1 (probably could have done more)

    Had a really nice, long stretch session for 15 minutes. Came home and ate dinner, which included 1 lb potatoes and onions, 3/4 lb mustard greens, 1 lb steamed perch, 1/2 G&B 85% bar, and a few oz of coconut chips. Feel really headachey after the chocolate and coconut...ate a spoonful of honey and it was all better? Calories 2700.

    • Wednesday:

      7.5 hours of sleep. Still congested. Breakfast was 2 eggs and 2 egg whites. Had pork-onion-rosemary-pear thing for lunch, and went out for a cup of joe with cream. And a truffle. And some trail mix. Walked around for maybe 1.5 miles? Came back home and jogged 3/4 mile, sprinted 1/4 mile, and walked about 3/4 mile. Dinner was 3/4 lb potatoes and onions, 3/4 lb chrysanthemum garland, 1 lb steamed perch, 1 G&B mint chocolate bar, and an oz of coconut chips. And some tastes of the lemongrass coconut milk ice cream I tested out on my friend's ice cream maker before it went into the freezer. Calories 2600.

        • Friday:

          6.5 hours of sleep. Had melted chocolate and hazelnut milk for breakfast. Walked about 2.5 miles during the day. Ate lamb neck sukiyaki for lunch. Gym.

          Back squat: 45x5, 75x5, 95x5, 115x5, 135x5, 165x5, 170x5
          Bench press: 40x5, 90x3x5

          Did a 4 min tabata on rowing machine.

          Came home and ate 1 lb steamed perch, some rice-bean-celery-onion-carrot mix, leftover coconut pulp, and 4 oz unsweetened chocolate (wow, that completely undid all of the food I just ate in terms of getting rid of dampness.....as was my eating habits for the entire month). Also had a Tbsp local honey. I think I way overdid the chocolate....feel pretty nauseous. Calories 2500.

          • Saturday:

            6 hours of sleep. Had a huge-ass pancake in the morning made of leftover coconut pulp, eggs and egg whites, and a blended pear. Went on a 7-mile hike in the afternoon, shortly after a half cup of joe. After the hike, I had a humongous chocolate truffle and a Japanese daifuku mochi with mugwort. Had 1 lb steamed bass, 3/4 lb Swiss chard, 2.5 lb pears, 1.5 oz unsweetened chocolate, and gradual tastes of coconut milk sesame ice cream as it slowly spiraled to failure in texture. Calories 2800.

            • Sunday:

              8.5 hours of sleep. Had coffee from the previous day. Lunch (12 hr fast! lol!) was leftover sesame ice cream (basically was flaked coconut oil bits with sesame ice) and some pork kidney in onion and ginger. For some reason, could really detect the pee smell this time. Also, I had a small container of natto. Man, I don't know why I liked that stuff when I was younger :/

              Basically walked around and got more food. Couldn't find any cheap, good quality kabocha squash Did a 20 min sesh of easy yoga in the evening shortly before dinner. Dinner was sauteed onion, carrot, celery, adzuki bean, and brown rice. Also had tomato-egg soup. Then 2 apples. Then....an entire Lindt sea salt chocolate bar. WHY. WHY am I so bad at avoiding chocolate? I also have another 3 bars in the pantry because I bought them for only $2 each. :/

              Calories 2750.

              • Monday:

                7 hours of sleep. I can definitely tell that I am going overboard on the chocolate because I am starting to get dandruff and the skin on the back of my hand is getting dried-looking. Stupid sugar. Breakfast at 10 was a boiled egg and an egg white. Lunch was pork rib-onion-apple-rosemary thing. Walked a mile. Had a can of coconut water and some goldenberry/sprouted pumpkin seed trail mix and a tiny piece of chocolate. Dinner was 3/4 lb bok choy, 2 boiled eggs, and 5 boiled egg whites. Then I walked to WF and bought some sprouted almonds and Valrhona chocolate in bulk....ate all....came home and ate some natto. Calories 2300 in total.

                            6 hours of sleep. Fasted 19 hours. Ran some errands, then went to the gym.

                            Snatch: 45x5, 55x5, 65x3x3
                            Clean: 65x5, 75x3x3
                            Deadlift to shrug: 75x5, 100x5, 120x5, 145x5
                            Push press: 45x5, 55x5, 65x5, 75x3x3
                            Front squat: 75x5, 95x5, 110x5

                            Worked up a sweat. My posture got noticeably better...better than it was in the last few weeks. Ate dinner, which was pork sirloin-etc., onion-carrot-celery-white-rice, 2 large Asian pears, and some sprouted pumpkin seeds. Calories 2350.

                            SO MANY ONION FARTS. I think I may need to dial down that consumption a bit.
