    3pm: 1 can of sardines
    4pm: 10 macadamia nuts and some coconut flakes.

    9am: Double shot of black espresso
    12pm: 3 egg frittatta made with left over CSA green veggie and last 2 oz of canned salmon. Topped with big dollop of Wholly Guacamole!
    1pm: 1/2 cup of toasted coconut flakes. 5 macadamia nuts. 1/3 cup of coconut milk.
    8pm: Some coconut flakes
    10pm: Green beans, roasted carrots and onions, and 22 shrimp with butter. 1 cup of frozen berries.

    8pm: Squat day! Lunges-27.5lb. Tried 1 leg squat but couldn't get it right. I took a 3-4hour nap before hand and it made my workout feel great! Being well rested makes a huge difference!
    11pm: Mobility WOD day 4. Yay, more hip flexor stretching! Couldn't last 4 minutes without taking a break every minute or so. (On ground, deep lunge with knee on ground as far back as possible, arms overhead and grab doorframe)

    1:15pm: 3 scrambled eggs with grass fed butter and a big dollop of Wholly guac. 1/2 cup of toasted coconut flakes. A cup of chai made with 1/3 cup of coconut milk.
    2:30pm: Thai food at a restaurant - green seafood curry with calamari, shrimp, and fish balls(questionable), a tiny bit of sticky rice, fried catfish(questionable) salad, chinese broccoli. First time at Tartine so ate a cocoa rocher and a corner of a crossaint. [Treat 3 of 3]
    7pm: 5 macadamia nuts. Some coconut flakes.
    8:30pm: 3 scrambled eggs with grass fed butter and a big dollop of Wholly guac. Nuked broccoli on the side. 1/2 cup of frozen berries.

    7pm: OHP day! Tried standing again but on my last set I felt my back imbalance taking over so I repeated it while sitting. Skullcrushers-30lb. Assisted Pullups-52lb.
    9pm: Mobility WOD day 5. I used my desk to stretch my shoulders but I felt like it was too low. Oh well. (Back to desk, stretch arms out and grab desk, lean forward, lower body. Variation: Put hands together and repeat)

    After eating questionable Thai food and Tartine treats, it felt like there was a brick in my stomach - the food felt heavy and like it was just sitting there. The feeling went away after I lifted and ate good food again, thank god. I don't need to eat an entire pastry from Tartine, just a bite or two to taste it is enough - this is how I will go about eating completely unprimal food (and my remaining almond rocher). The upcoming week is going to be a tough one because of Valentine's day and a slightly abnormal schedule but I am going to stick to my guns and not give into the temptress of unhealthy carbs! My colleague already gave me a tiramisu cake this morning and told me not to give it to my bf - I'm sorry, I really appreciate it, but I'm still going to!

    3pm: Can of sardines with 1 avocado and 4 oz of coconut flakes.
    5pm: Another 2-4 oz coconut flakes

    9:30pm: Mobility WOD day 6. I grabbed a doorframe instead of a pole and it made the grip difficult. (Reach hand behind, bend elbow and grab doorframe, lean around to work shoulder)

    2/14/12
    9am: 1/2 cup of coffee
    12:40pm: Spicy chinese food - I ate the spicy fish, green veggies, green beans in garlic, some mushrooms and bamboo shoots but there was starch in the sauces and the oil was probably canola.
    6:20pm: Some coconut flakes, 10 macadamia nuts.
    8pm: 1 small cod fillet, roasted bell peppers, brussel sprouts with onions, snap peas. Salmon salad: 5oz canned salmon with 4oz wholly guacamole.
    9pm: 1/3 cup coconut milk with a scoop of cocoa powder to make pudding. A handful of frozen berries.

    8am: Tabata!
    6:45pm: Deadlift day! RDL - 80lb. Suitcase DL - 30lb. Leg lifts.
    9:30pm: MobilityWOD Day 7. I noticed I do the navicular drop on my weaker left hip when I'm squatting heavy! I am going to correct that with the help of the hip opening exercise done today. (On hands and knees, 1 leg back, try to push femur through butt on the other leg, internally rotate. Then, put foot in front of knee to externally rotate.)
