A quick post before bed – It’s Friday night and tomorrow we’re driving the 3-ish hours to Potomac Crossfit in Arlington, VA for the Paleolithic Solution Seminar! Can’t wait to learn from someone who make it his business to stay on the cutting edge of performance and lifestyle nutrition.
Breakfast: Paleo Porridge and 2 scrambled eggs. The Paleo Porridge was so ridiculously filling – and because it qualifies SOMEWHAT as a “substitute food” (as it was not eaten in its natural form and thus is extremely calorie-dense) I recommend eating it slowly and eating a half-portion. This stuff is FILLING – it’s a perfect breakfast when you’re planning on compressing your “eating window,” which I did today. One half-serving of the porridge recipe would yield a good 700 calories.
Lunch: As previously stated, I had a “compressed eating window” today. Because I needed to go to bed VERY early for a 5AM departure, I didn’t want to eat too close to bedtime. I also didn’t want to eat too close to workout time (6pm). So I made breakfast and lunch REALLY count. Lunch was a large sweet potato with a big dollop of ghee and 1/2 lb. of beef, burger-style.
Lean beef jerky and a few cherries an hour before working out rounded out the day.
Today’s Workout: 1000m row “buy-in” where I practiced my rowing technique (as counseled by Rachel Greengas, who rules the world) followed by 20 minutes, AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) of 5 deadlifts (115lbs this time), 10 push-ups and 10 box jumps. Goal was 10 and I fell just short of 9. Slow and steady with the goal of maintaining my pace throughout.
