I was reading some of the leptin reset thread last night. Man, there is so much info there my head started to hurt. I've been suffering from fatigue for quite some time that by the time the afternoon gets here most days I can barely keep my eyes open. I've also suffered from insomnia for years and although it is much better now, most nights I spend a lot of time tossing and turning. I found the info very interesting, but the thought of scarfing down massive amounts of food so early in the morning made me a bit queasy just reading about it.
And then there is the exercise in the evening thing. Due to my schedule, if I don't exercise in the morning it probably isn't going to happen except for the one or two nights a week I might get out to play raquetball. Of course, those are all excuses. I actually decided to see what the heck 50g of protein looks like. Since I'm recovering vegetarian I just couldn't quite wrap my mind around consuming that all at one setting. Paleotrack says my 2 eggs scrambled with 2.5 oz of pork sausage and a half cup of cottage cheese was 48g. I was a bit surprised by that to be honest because I ate it and still feel as though I could eat more even though technically I don't think I'm still hungry, so didn't. I'll have to read more about it and see how it fits in with my schedule and symptoms.
As for exercise for the day. My PBF looked like this...
Pull ups: 20, 2 legged assisted x2
Push ups: 30 wall push x2
Squats: 30 pole assisted x2
Plank: 60 sec hand and knee plank x2
Supposed to do elevated jack knife presses, but Mark's youtube video says it's private and I have no clue what they look like so I skipped them.
1.5 mile walk with my trusty sidekick, Sampson.
Food for the day...
Upon rising: Bullet Proof Coffee
B: Scrambled eggs with pork sausage
decaf black coffee
S: Boiled egg
Handful of strawberries
Green beans with bacon
Went out for a few hours to watch a friend's band and had two Bud Lights then came home and had some dark chocolate. Super yummy!!
