    Primal Fuel
    Today WOD: Work in front of the computer all day. Also I never got around to doing yesterday's wod. But tomorrow I start Crossfit!

    Fooooooood: b'fast greek yogurt + a banana, three eggs scrambled in heaps of butter and cream, big slice of goat cheese on top. Lunch BAS w/ chicken and bacon and egg. Dinner = bad, bad, indian takeout (actually it was tasty). No time to cook. Chicken tandoori, spinach + cheese thing, and lamb biryani (basically rice pilaf). gluten free and no sugar, at least. dark choco as a dessert.

    Today wod: crossfit foundations day 1, will give a full report. I think they are going to teach us how to air squat and do pushups.

    Food: bfast just some yogurt w/ blueberries, lunch leftover takeout, dinner leftover takeout + leftover pastured lamb from the meatshare. next few days I'll be traveling for work (Minneapolis) and primal options will be minimal, as will sleep and play. Ah well, summer vacation is almost here.

    Crossfit report: Nice people, very careful and thorough coaches. It felt babyish to me though - pushups, air squats, inverted rows, and situps. At the end we did 3 rounds for time of: 25 situps, 20 air squats, 15 inverted rows, 10 pushups. I did it unmodified in 10:48, just because I went at a deliberate pace with all the situps and squats. It was good but far from the toughest thing I've done. My homemade metcons were tougher, and stair sprints far tougher. Other group members were newer to the whole serious exercise thing and it was harder for them, but we all learned and got a workout. Good experience, not mind blowing.

    wow, reading what I just wrote, and thinking how far I've come in just over a year is blowing my mind right now.

    Today -ah, not so primal. Up at 4 to catch a flight. Wod: walking around downtown Minneapolis, I suppose. I have some soreness from yesterday's crossfit, but it's really nothing.
    Food: ahem. b'fast #1 greek yogurt + blueberries. #2 a "breakfast burrito" complete with egg, chorizo, salsa, beans, and cheese in a flour tortilla. I was in an airport, sorry. Lunch: fish and chips (really good ones) at a minneapolis restaurant. Not exactly primal, but it had been a long time. Dinner will be similarly bad, bad, bad...tomorrow will also be bad, bad, bad....no time to really deal with the whole "special food needs" thing for the next couple of days. And I have to say, I am really grateful not to be actual celiac or diabetic because then I wouldn't be so easily able to just chuck the PB for a few days when it's inconvenient.

    Not so primal again today but better - no WOD, just sitting around conference rooms all day, bad sleep, no play.
    Food - I did eat well. Breakfast was at the swank hotel restaurant - corned beef hash and eggs, new potatoes, totally delicious. Expensive but I'm going back. Lunch: the conference served us free lunch! Except it was....vegetarian lasagna with a huge hunk of bread on the side. Slight paleo fail there.....I asked if they had anything else, they said no, but they eventually found some gluten-free pasta and veggies they served me, no real flavor, not even any salt. It was a nice gesture I guess. After lunch I took a walk to a chipotle grill and had a steak + rice bowl, that was nice. Dinner was high end, rare tuna + etc. Totally primal except all the booze. Anyhow I stayed gluten free today and avoided sugar.

    I am going out of town tomorrow for a few weeks - I am a little concerned about how food is going to be too - I don't want to derail myself if possible, but I will just have to find the most primalish options I can.

    Yeah, for me just avoiding gluten and sugar when possible is about all I can do, I can't obsess over this stuff when I've got work to do all day and have to eat out every meal. A few weeks of basically SAD food minus bread isn't going to make a big dif in the long run. A few days (my case) is nothing, always good to remember.

    Back home finally, today wod: Lots and lots of sitting on my butt. I really considered doing some primal fitness moves in the airport, but it was super crowded, there was some kind of technical difficulty happening, it just didn't seem right.
    Food: again with the corned beef hash, lunch another Chipotle meal, this time with full guac and carnitas. Dinner a cobb salad from the airport - thank god for cobb salads, hey. So, not so primal but not any kind of food disaster. People are much larger in the midwest, wow - it realy is a shock to leave the coastal cities and see the health problems this country has - almost nobody over 30 looks very healthy. No muscle tone, lots of extra fat, many very obese, etc. - you all know what I mean, but it is just weird to leave your little new york bubble and re-enter the real world from time to time.

    Today WOD: Crossfit intro course, day 2 - we learned deadlifting (I stayed at 175, just taking in the form coaching), reviewed pushups, (ended up doing maybe 40-50 pushups) and did some jump ropes. I thought the coaching was excellent, the progression made sense, all good so far.

    Food: IF'd for brekkie, that was nice actually. After crossfit had a banana, then a bit later I had lunch of thin sliced beef fried in lard topped with spicy bbq sauce, side of green beans + butter, a cup or so of rice. Dinner will be some fish and stuff. I ought to do more IFing (skipped-breakfast variety), I don't know why I'm still not really in the habit of it.
