Food Log 9/30/2015

Breakfast –

Nothing it is 10:56 and I havn’t eaten. I haven’t even been hungry. So I guess breakfast today was my workout and water, but I’m gonna have to find something for lunch.

Lunch –

Had a lunch plate from Walmart Deli, General TSOs Chicken and Okra.

Dinner –

Spicy Shepherd’s Pie Chorizo Meatloaf


Workout 9/30/2015

They called this one “Hold On”

Warm Up:
10 PVC PC (pass throughs)
10 Ring Rows
10 Wall Balls (I did mine with a 10#)

For 20 minutes:
ODD: 5 Thrusters 95/65#
5 Pull-ups
5 Burpees

I was nowhere close to being able to do this one as prescribed. To start off with I can only do one set of 5 consecutive thrusters with about 55 pounds, and that’s only one round. I’m still working on my pull ups so I was confined to jumping pull-ups today. So all of that being said my workout today was

3 Thrusters @ 55#

3 Jumping Pull-ups

3 Burpees

Even with the scaling back I was still beat at the end of this. I can’t wait until I RX a workout and can do a pull-up. I think those are my first 2 goals of crossfit.

Foodlog 9-29-15

Gyro pronto from the purple onion.

I have to admit I did not stick to my self imposed eating plan today. The resturant across the street from work is closing after several years, so I had to have one last burger. So I ordered a Cheesy Cheeseburger. It is a 1\3 pound burger on a roll with grilled onions and two different kind of cheeses.

I was really hungry after the big lunch so I have half a link of smoked sausage with mustard.

First workouts outside of ONRAMP

So I have done two WODs outside of ONRAMP. They were two very different workouts. They were each very challenging. It’s interesting to see that movements that I’m better at and which ones are gonna take some work to improve.

The first WOD post ONRAMP was a partner WOD

  • 60-40-20 (this was scaled for myself and another beginner to 30-20-10)
  • Wallballs 20/14# (Again scaled to 10#)
  • V-Ups
  • *Partners run 400m together after the sets of 60 and 40* (Scaled to 200m)

Even with the scaling I was stilled cooked after this workout. It took my partner and eye around 18 minutes to finish. Sorry I didn’t get this posted soon with the exact time.

The second workout outside of ONRAMP was this morning. It looked simple to start with but it quickly wore me down.

It was for 12 minutes: Odds Dead Lift (I did 115) – Even Handstand Push Ups (I did mine from a box.)

Then came ANNIE

  • 50-40-30-20-10 Double Unders (I can’t do a double under yet so I did 100,80,60.. regular jump ropes)
  • Situps

There was a 12 minute cap on the Annie part of the workout. I was only able to finish the first 3 rounds.

Weekend cheat time 9/26 – 9/27

Well I made it another week without drinking the first soft drink. I’m pretty sure the caffeine headaches are gone. I made it all the way from Monday to Friday without eating a burger on a bun, or a sandwich on white bread. I haven’t stepped on a scale to see if there has been an improvement there but I have started feeling better after eating cleaner for two weeks.

So football Saturday rolled around and I had to be at work all day so I lucked out that I cheat on the weekends. We started out with breakfast; I stayed good by eating a couple of scrambled eggs, with pepper roast on top. All this was made into a breakfast burrito. Lunch was late and we fried chicken fingers and covered them with buffalo sauce. That was paired with Rotel cheese dip that was snacked on the rest of the day. I kept my water consumption high. This was probably better in the long run that the whole pizza I ate last week end.

Sunday I spent at home with the wife. We skipped breakfast went to church and then had Panera for lunch. I ordered the grilled chicken caesar salad with a side of tomato soup and an apple instead of bread. For dinner we made a little pasta. It consisted of lasagna noodles rolled up with spinach and ricotta cheese inside. Tomato sauce was then put on top and bottom. I ate four, that was probably too many but I was still on cheat day.

Now it’s Monday and I’m back on track. Thanks for reading, let me know what else you would like to see me write about.
