Day 14, 15, 16. Halfway Point!

Breakfast (8am-ish)- 2 chicken sausages from Whole Foods (clean ingredients, I should have taken a pic). Big scoop of canned pumpkin. Cup of decaf coffee. Cup of broth that wasn’t quite “brothy” enough – it had only been going since last night. Lunch (11:30am) – a very small scoop of white rice and a not […]

Lucky Day 13.

Felt pretty sluggish this morning. The lessening caffeine is definitely hitting me. Today I had: coffee with butter, salmon, butternut squash, plantains (very hungry not too long after this, prob too many carbs, not enough protein), banana/spinach/coconut milk thing. NEED PROTEIN. This is going to be a very intentional weekend to relax. Nature! Almost halfway […]

Days 10,11, 12 (OOPS) and WHY I’M GOING TO BED RIGHT NOW.

Friends. It’s been quite a week. I have a post in the works about how sleep is an integral part of your overall health, but given that fact that it is now 10:30 and I JUST finished eating dinner and I am possibly seeing dream-Jesus at the end of a tunnel right now, I think […]

Day 9. Week Two Begins!

How’s everyone feeling?   Today, I consumed: half coffee/half herbal blend with butter and pumpkin pie spice (delicious), banana, baby spinach, coconut milk, ground lamb, mustard, curry powder, cinnamon, cumin, kale, shredded zucchini, nori wraps, and a couple homemade potato chips (my husband has been known to slice a potato with the mandolin and throw […]

Day 7-8. It’s the Freakin’ Weekend.

Sorry for the missing post yesterday – I was getting ready for The Best Oly Meet That Ever Was (okay, yeah, I’m tooting our own horn a little, but wasn’t the 2012 hookgrip Classic amazing? So many PR’s, so many qualifying lifts, so much amazing form, and so much support from everyone in the gym. […]

Day 6. IT’S FRIDAY, FRIDAY!

Quick update: – coffee this morning was half caffeinated, half decaf with butter and cinnamon and was delicious. Definitely felt a little foggy in the afternoon though. Ah, caffeine. Food today: Trader Joe’s sardines in olive oil 1/2 potato 1/2 avocado 2 squares dark chocolate 1 beef stick from Fair Food Farmstand 1 honey crisp […]

Day 5!

Morning: Coffee blended with pastured butter (1/2 regular, 1/2 of my new herbal blend from Teeccino) <–side note, I just realized how it sounds kind of shady that I’m like “hey I have this new HERBAL BLEND.” It’s legit! Then, got a decaf Americano while Erin and I worked. *My energy has been CRAZY all […]

Day 4. Why I Do This.

Tomorrow we’ll be back to our usual snark and witticisms, but I needed to mark today. I hope you all don’t mind. Four years ago, September 19th fell on a Friday night. I had just arrived in NYC to spend the weekend reuniting with my best friends from college. It was 10 or 11pm, we […]
