Day #5

Let's be warriors!

Just read/listened to The E-myth by Gerber for the 4th or 5th time. Listen to this great quote:
by Don Juan in Carlos Castanda's A Separate Peace: "The difference between a warrior and an ordinary man is that a warrior sees everything as a challenge, while an ordinary man sees everything as either a blessing or a curse."


  1. hey...did anyone see my ? about post workout carb/protien ratio ?

  2. Zone, not Paleo. I have toddlers, so lay off. I'm down 42 pounds for the year this way, so I figure I'm doing something right. Goals: Not to gain any weight by Christmas (likely); Drop my 2k row from 7:07.8 to under 6:50 (possible); To keep my Linda time lower than Sid's (hard to imagine).

    Thursday (no WOD for me):
    (17 blocks, a little light on carbs)

    7:30am (3P/3F/2C)
    Two eggs + two egg whites
    A splash of olive oil
    1/2 cantaloupe

    noon (4 blocks)
    Salad Greens / Grapes / scallions / italian dressing
    4 oz chicken
    small handful nuts
    small bread

    4:30 (2 blocks)
    ZonePerfect Bar

    7pm (5 blocks)
    Portillo's Beef Sandwich (1/2 Bun)
    5 Onion Rings

    11pm (3P/3F/2C)
    Three hard boiled eggs
    1 Pear


  3. Tried to post earlier. Checking to see if I have figured this out now. Sorry about this post.

  4. OK - just starting following this. My diet has improved tremendously in the last year, but I am still very carb heavy - I think I'm addicted. My goal is to improve the diet across the board, but especially decrease the carb intake. Prep will be key - really starting to understand that - especially with a kid in tow now.
    Thursday's meals:
    breakfast: bowl of Cheerios w/banana (didn't know bananas were the enemy, and I know a boxed breakfast is not good, not to mention the carbs).
    Snack: 1.5 cups cantaloupe, 1 yogurt (usually I eat plain, low-fat yogurt, but this one was flavored - strawberry)
    Lunch: turkey sandwich w/whole grain bread (more carbs), 1 slice low-fat cheddar cheese, greens on top, and 1 c cottage cheese
    Snack: 2 servings trail mix (pistachio nuts, dried cranberries, almonds, raisins); 4 nacho chips (I know, I know)
    dinner: chicken wrap w/avocado, bacon, greens and a light dressing, side of mashed potatoes! 1 glass of red wine.

    I told you I was addicted to carbs! That is my goal - to reduce the carb intake and get more towards a paleo/zone diet. I just looked in my cupboard right now and it is embarassing - carbs up the whazoo! Need to become a bit more educated here.
