Ugh, I really feel crummy today :( This cold has finally gotten the better of me! I felt okay when I woke up, but have been feeling worse and worse throughout the day.
CF this morning was good. Did 15 Deadlifts/15 Pushups - 10 rounds. RX was 95lbs on the Deads, I did 99lbs. Wow did they get heavy by the 6th or 7th round! My final time was just over 20 minutes. I did the first 2 rounds of strict pushups, and then went to my knees to avoid compromising my form.
Lifting was AWESOME last night! I FINALLY pressed the 65 lbs for all sets. . . . they were really ugly, but I did it! Only thing is that I did bounce a little bit at the bottom of each rep (okay a LOT by the final set). I'm going to drop it down to 60 next week and concentrate on eliminating the bounce before I go back up in weight.
Okay, on to food. I'm on day 3 of being strict.
So far today:
4:30am - 2 mini sweet potato frittatas (pre CF)
6:30am - 3 oz sweet potato + 1/4 scoop Protein powder (post CF)
8:00am - 1/4 cup steel cut oats, 1 T Almond Butter, 1/2 scoop Protein Powder (needed energy!)
11:45am - 4 oz Tilapia + Salad w/ spinach, tomato, onion, avocado, 1 hb egg, carrots, and balsamic vinegar
Afternoon - Snacked on 1 TB Almond Butter & a few saltine crackers. . .later had 1/2 plumcott
6:30pm - 1 Link Lean Turkey Sausage + Zuchinni, Squash, and Onions sauteed in EVOO
Really felt crappy by the end of the night. . I know the saltines weren't Paleo, but I had to do something to settle my stomach mid-afternoon.
Missed my Oly lifting session tonight b/c I felt absolutely horrible, not to mention I don't think the others in the gym would have appreciated me sneezing and coughing all over them!
