Trying to put the toasted coconut down so I can type.
Yes, you heard that right. Another version of coconut.
This one made by yours truly. Inspired by The Primal Recipe.
I topped mine with sea salt and cinnamon. Officially on the list of foods to take to the bunker with me.
Speaking of bunkers, saw Safe House tonight. Denzel, Ryan Reynolds, and lots of guys with guns.
Visited the thai restaurant tonight for the first time since the W30. I ordered my entree without sugar or oil and hoped for the best. I’m a little torn between trusting the chef and being paranoid about exactly what I ate, but I think I will just chill out. It’s been over a week since I ate out, and I’ve only eaten out 6 times in the last 50 days. I continue to make the best choices I can and have a new awareness about food.
It was a wonderful night out with great friends and I’m thankful!
Speaking of friends, I had a great WOD with Wayne today. He not only found a great workout, but cheered me on the whole way. Here is what we did:
“Get Er Done”
70 Mountain Climbers
60 Goblet Squats
50 Box Jumps
40 Pull Ups
30 Sit Ups
15 Push Ups
10 Push Press
5 Overhead Squats
With the triathlon in mind, I ran 400m after each of the rounds. All told, I ran 4000m today (actually 4400 with warm-up). I think working running into one workout a week (a Saturday chipper works great) will be very helpful for my training. We’ll see what Coach Erik thinks.
The WOD took me about 43:15.
Wowzer. Thanks Wayne!
Sleep=11-7 (yeah! 8 hours!)
Pre-workout small piece chicken and a little coconut
PWO 2 egg white muffins
Breakfast: 2 eggs, hash, 1/2 avocado
Lunch: Can of tuna, spinach salad, butternut squash chips
To the tuna, I added spicy mustard, olive oil, salt, pepper, celery and carrots
I’m also excited that I have located all of the pieces to my Cuisinart, including the vegetable slicer which I used to make butternut squash chips.
I sliced the neck of a butternut squash (so violent, like Denzel!) using my food processor. Then I added coconut oil and salt and baked for about 30-40 mins on 425. These were delicious and I think the carbs were in order after today’s workout!
Dinner: Thai shrimp & mushroom dish
Tomorrow will be a family and cooking day. Oh, and I’m also supposed to go swim. I bought a suit today. Good times.
