    OK, here's the deal: I'm signing off for the summer. No more tfarny to kick around any more. I have work to do, vacations to take, shape to get into, people to see. I do not have time to read the same, "Relax, Grok wouldn't have worried about eating 1000 skittles" crap even one more time.

    Wish me luck. If you see me back here, please kick my ass and tell me to stay away. Sayonara!

    Brief update then I'm back outta here - Vibrams are awesome, went to the Poconos last weekend and climbed a 1500 foot ridge, steep and rocky, in them. They were really, really great. I did switch to tennis shoes for the miles-long rest of the walk over sharp uneven rocks, but with some more vibrams training I'd probably prefer them even for that. Regular shoes feel really stupid all of a sudden.

    Food - been eating well, lotsa meatshare meats, more salads and fruits as things start to come on. Crossfit is going well, but slowly - the intro lessons are not providing a lot of fitness benefit to me but the coaching is really good. I really need to add in more of those home metcons etc. But honestly I miss being on a SS-type of program, that was where I felt I was doing the most good for my fitness out of anything I've tried.

    Update: Crossfit intro course is almost over, today we did a workout that I fricking hated, and not because it was hard: 20 double unders and 10 hang snatches, 10 minutes AMRAP. Both of those movements are technical / new / hard for me, so trying to do a lot of them, quickly, while exhausted, was a recipe for frustration. Timed WODs ought to be simple movements with lower chance for injury. Also not sure what the advantage of high-rep oly lifts is - wouldn't a burpee be as effective (or a jumping jack?) Grrrrrr. Other than that I'm really happy with my cfit experience thus far.

    Food is doing well, though I'm not losing the gut anytime soon. I never really had "6 pack" in my goals, having never had one even as a too-skinny kid, I just carry all my fat in my gut and that's how it is. This morning before WOD I had just a couple of eggs topped with "bacon jam" - (Google it!) - and leftover white potatoes fried in lard.

    WOD: today is the last crossfit intro class, so I'll take a long walk and do that workout. I actually don't feel any more fit than I did a month ago, I was working out much harder doing SS than crossfit. I'm going to give it a good three month shot, though. Tomorrow I'll sprint, Friday I'll PLAY racquetball, Saturday I'll do my first proper cfit wod.

    Food: 12 oz grassfed hanger steak, brought to room temperature and covered with a homemade spice rub then cooked medium rare in a hot skillet with pastured lard. Stupid good. It was actually tastier than it even looks in this picture. 1/2 sweet potato fried in coconut oil and a little side salad. Dessert was 1/2 cup "coconut ice cream" from trader joe's with the addition of some mixed berries. In other words, yeah I'm eating right.

    WOD: Hill sprints, chins, aussie pushups, box jumps - all in the park. Too lazy to write out the exact details. Killer though.
    Food: Goat yogurt for bfast, big fry up of potatoes, pastured pork sausage, and eggs. Dinner leftovers of my lamb coconut curry.

    WOD: Checked out a fancy new gym (free pass) today. They have a new oly platform and beautiful gear, and a pool. Yoga and boxing classes. Heaven, but $$$$. Did squats, OHP, clean + jerk, chins, unbalanced pushups.
    Food: Oops, exact same as yesterday. Ah well.

    Couple recent food pics.
    Exercise update: I decided against crossfit, mainly for the reasons I'd originally had reservations about: Some of the exercise combos seem very injury-making, I can do most of their workouts on my own at home or in a standard gym, and it's hellaciously expensive if you don't really need the coaching. I mean, $200 a month to have someone yell at you while you do pushups?
    So I joined the NY flagship branch of Equinox - same price as crossfit, but it's a spotless beautiful building, with not only yoga and boxing classes, but a pool, two hot and one cold tub, dry and wet sauna, brand new weights and barbells, olympic platform, etc. - right next to work. Did two SS type workouts already and am developing a SS-like 2x week plan that is slightly less aggressive and allows time for park sprints, yoga, HIT, or racquetball. I just have found that a focused barbell program does more for me than anything else I've ever done, so I'm going to stick with it and see where it takes me. Yesterday I did squats, OHP, deads, and chins. No PRs at the moment.

    Yesterday wod: hill sprints! and chins.
    Food: Feasted on air and sunlight for breakfast, lunch was a PWO shake of milk, 1 entire mango, and whey powder plus greek lamb sausages and leftover sweet potatoes. Dinner i finished the taters and had a massive ground beef + lamb (all good stuff) burger topped with 1/2 avocado and some bacon jam. 1.5 glasses pinot noir.

    Today also no b'fast, lunch was a steak benedict at a restaurant + bloody mary, dinner will be grassfed ground beef + lamb in marinara sauce over sauteed summer squash cooked in lard. I have made sauteed squash and zucchini so many times in my life, but never found perfection in this basic dish till I tried using lard instead of EVOO or butter. Yes, lard beats butter for some veggie applications.
