  • Survival Week 7/6/09



    Ok Survivors, are you ready!?


    This is our first Survival Week. Everyone is welcome to join in.


    Rules:


    1) Low carb. Let's try to keep them under 50.


    2) 2 meals per day. Your choice which meal to IF. Also, you may IF more than one meal if you choose.


    One thing I tend to do on my Survival Week is not buy groceries, so that I'm forced to survive on whatever food is in the house, and *only* whatever food is in the house. Everyone ok with making this a rule for the next survival week? (It also helps clean out the stuff that never seems to get used.)


    Good Luck, Surivors! You can do it!

    What a way to start Survival Week, with an upset tummy. So...


    B: IF


    L: Planning a pork chop w/ spinach- if I trust my guts to behave at work. Otherwise, IF-ing again.


    D: Eggs and what's left of the blueberries from the weekend- about a handful.

      I actually did my first official IF yesterday, from dinner on Saturday to lunch on Sunday (17 hours). And I'm doing another one now, not eating until lunch today (16 hours), so I might as well join in and do it all week!


      B: IF


      L: Leftover chicken lettuce wraps, HB eggs


      D: Beef stir fry with broccoli and mushrooms

        B: IF


        L: 2 eggs and left over chicken, fennel and walnut stirfry, though had a few hours apart as started to eat eggs for lunch and then got interrupted with work so didnít have the chicken left overs until later Ė so does that count as two meals or one?


        D: Steak with broccoli and pak choy with lots of butter and wakame and sesame seeds sprinkled on top.

          Yay! Here we go. Me and IF don't get along so well because of my workouts. So, to add a degree of "survival" to the mix, I am not going to have any dairy this week. Not, a. single. slice. or. shred. I also like the idea of not grocery shopping!

          B: 2 egg omelet with broccoli, 2 pieces of bacon, COFFEE

          L: Salad with tuna, no dressing

          D: Chicken on the grill with broccoli

          S: if I need it, a pouch of tuna and protein shake before bed


          Workout: 30 min cardio, 30 min strength training, then off to see my trainer later today for shoulders, tris, and bis.


          Total carbs (according to Fitday: 47.3)

            Good morning!

            I need to plan out my day I guess, and make sure it's under 50g of carbs. Already IFing breakfast because yesterday I had this crazy-huge bowl of berries and whipped cream after dinner. haha.


            Also, if anyone gets a chance, can you please look at my last blog entry and weigh in on my weigh-in? I'm just a little confused.

            Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

              Lookin' good guys!


              I'm crazy hungry this morning. Usually when I IF it's smooth sailing. Digestion is feeling better so I'm really looking forward to lunch.

                Got started a little early on Sunday...


                AM workout: 7 mile run

                L: broccoli, cauliflower, homemade guacamole

                D: Rotisserie chicken, broccoli, cauliflower


                Unsure of total carbs but most likely about 40g.

                  Here's my plan for the day. It's 47g of carbs according to SparkPeople.


                  L: 3 pieces breakfast sausage, 2 deviled eggs. (Might have more than 2 deviled eggs if I'm still hungry but it'll probably be fine)

                  D: chicken breast, squash, asparagus

                  "Dessert": an apple w/2T almond butter


                  might switch out the apples for some berries though... we'll see what i feel like. haha.

                        I just finished dinner too. I forgot about my squash but didn't miss it at all... my chicken was awesome, and I made asparagus with caramelized onions/balsamic reduction to go with it. SO GOOD.


                        Also had my berries and almond butter.

                        Total carbs for the day = 40g. Awesome.

                          Monday:


                          I.F. until lunch. Chicken and veggies for lunch. Chicken and veggies for dinner (split a huge meal two ways). Total carbs just under 30g.


                          Workouts: 5 mile easy run. Squat presses with 70lb sandbag, as many as possible in 15 minutes.


                          Note: Only noting workouts so others can see that very low carb diet will not prohibit you from doing low end aerobic or high intensity workouts.

                            @GetPrimal I agree, please continue to post your workouts. As mentioned earlier, I did 30 min cardio, 30 min strength training, went to my trainer, and then came home and did another hour of weights. I just felt really good today and got busy with it! That, and another poster blasted P90X, and I just can't have no one talking bad about my man. So, in honor of Mr. Horton, I did an unplanned back and biceps!!

                              Got through the day good. My day ended up being extremely low carb. I was barely hungry at lunch from upset digestion so I only ate my pork chop. I had eggs for dinner- 3 boiled, and 2 fried with the last spoonful of my tomato sauce. Snacked on some blueberries and just now had some pork rinds with hot sauce. More than anything I've just been really thirsty.


                              I ended up skipping my workout this morning because I stayed up too late last night. Shame on me. I got a good workout when I got home though. I've been on a cleaning spree, so I completely revamped my kitchen. Tomorrow will be scrubbing the floors. Gonna try to stay in squat position as much as possible. I'm really looking forward to getting up early and getting to the gym to lift some heavy stuff.
