Today is now
Morning Weight: 168.5
I woke up on the wrong side of the bed so today I am going to try to get through my 2 workouts then take some time to relax and eat plenty of carbs. Hoping I wake up tomorrow at 49 BPM.

So I wanted to overtrain andI guess I did. Saturday I woke up and my legs were pretty destroyed and my heart rate was 51. Not a huge increase but and increase nonetheless. Sunday I ran 10K @85% and my legs felt like lead, heavy. Funny thing is after grinding through the 10K my time was closer to 95%. I guess I am getting faster.
No weigh or BPM this AM.
There was an earthquake, 4.0 I think as I was leaving the house to train at 5:30.
Bfast was a Cinnamon Dolce latte with 12oz light coconut milk in it. Actually pretty tasty and held me over till lunch.
Workout: ME Clean and Jerk. 60x5 80x5 100x3 115x3 125x2 135x1
3 rounds 5 hang cleans 115# 7 C2B pull ups Time 7:56
Chest and back hypertrophy;trying to build that bench! bench 4x95x10 pull ups and face pulls and db incline bench.
Morning weight: 168.5 felt very dehydrated upon waking. Low weight certainly due to that.
My morning heart rate seems to be pretty constant upon waking. I am going to try to push myself very hard next week and see if that changes (it should) my resting heart rate. Basically I will be trying to overtrain myself, yes that does sound like a stupid idea but it's in the name of science. Say a prayer I don;t get sick or injured. Yay!
Late breakfast of Nations pancakes and eggs and bacon. I just felt like I needed pancakes what can I say?
Snack: 20 g BCAA
Lunch: lettuce wrapped cheese burger and sweet potato fries
Snack: Salami 6 oz
Dinner: 4 slices pizza
Today was a nutrition fail but I did not stress about it. I do strict Paleo about 85/15 and I'm alright with it. I feel better when I eat right. My joints feel better when I eat right but I don;t have any crazy reactions when I eat crap. My performance goes down. Still I strive to eat real food all the time.
Workout: I was in a pissy mood today (weird how I made bad food choices and was in a funk right?) and just felt like back squatting a bunch so I did.
Back Squat: 5x45, 5x65, 5x85, 5x95, 5x115, 3x5x135, 10x95, 10x95, 5x95, 5x95, 5x95, 5x95, 3x95, 3x95, 3x95, 3x95.
Basically I just worked up to a moderate 3x5 then dropped it down and cranked squats for the rest of the 45 minutes I had left, resting abo
Poop and Poo
One is regarding eliminations one is regarding shampoo. I have only recently become more interested in how what I eat effects my digestion. I always knew it was important but never had a good pulse on it. I challenge you to think about it. When I went to the balanced bites seminar Diane said we should poop 1 or 2 times a day and they should be good looking poops. You should not have to run to the bathroom and likewise, you should not have to sit on the toilet for several minutes waiting for it. I am challenging myself to keep better notes of what I eat and how it effects my eliminations and I challenge you to do the same. If you can get that in check your health will follow. If your poop smells real bad and is real dark in color you have too many toxins and probably are eating a lot of processed foods, if it is very light in color and floats there is a lot of undigested fat, it it is large and hard to pass, too much protein, if it is pellet like you are likely dehydrated, if it is diarrhea sto eating whatever you ate, if there is undigested food in it then it may be due to a food intolerance. Poop should be well formed and light brown and float a little. Here is a picture made up by Paul Chek.
On to the poo. I have decided to stop using shampoo for a while. I have gone in and out on this topic for a few months but am going to give it a shot for a month at least. So, March is no poo time. I got the idea from cavegirleats. I will be doing baking soda with some occasional tea tree oil if I have dandruff a few times a week and the apple cider vinegar rinse a couple times a week as well and eventually try to get to no poo. I am also limiting the amount I wash my body. I am switching from dove to dr bonners and will limit to one body wash a day. If I work out 2 times and need two showers one will just be a rinse. I'll keep ya posted.
Morning Weight: 170.5
Workout: Tabata on treadmill with 12% grade at 5K pace minus 30 seconds (6:50)
last two were pretty brutal but I was pleased with my performance. I could have handled 6:45. I really like the CFE programming this week. Good Mornings then Thrusters and DB swings then hill sprints feels like a potent combo. I feel like it has been a great blast to the hammies.
