What’s in a week?

In the spirit of saving time (NO TIME) I’m going to lump my weekly workout/nutrition accountability together in one post .

Tuesday 9/17

Workout – Yoga  I admit I feel like an absolute moron doing yoga, thankfully I’m in my home gym where no one else can see me but “I” KNOW.  Regardless it feels pretty good to stretch it all out after the higher intensity workouts.

Meals So I’m pretty sure I should have all of these planned already but yet again I’m flying by the seat of my pants.
12:45 Apple and 2 cheesesticks
2:30 Protein shake (better than yesterdays)  3/4 cup coconut water, 1 scoop biotrust protein powder (chocolate), handful of frozen mixed berries, 1 tablespoon cocoa & chia seeds
4:30 Just a Handful from Trader Joes (nuts and cranberries)
7:00 Leftover chicken tortilla soup
8:30 1 tablespoon of Wild Friends Natural PB (chocolate and coconut flavor)

Water Just over 80 oz plus my 24oz of unsweetened ice tea.

Calories accord to Livestong.com 1275

How’d I feel?  The headache was a killer today.  I’ve eliminated almost all grains and sugar from my diet so day 2 was a killer in terms of detox and what not.  Finally took some advil around bedtime ;-/

Wednesday 9/18

Turbulence Training 2.0 Beginner A – felt easy at first but the finisher had me huffing and puffing.

1:30 Big A$$ Salad (BAS) with tuna and 1/4 avocado and homemade balsamic vinaigrette 
3:30 1 cup pineapple
5:45 1 tablespoon Wild Friends Natural PB
7:30 Another BAS with a bowl of beef broth veggie soup with pork loin (strange combo in a soup but it was good).  The soup did have potato’s.  Now there were about 8 pieces of crouton on the salad and I did eat them. 

At least 80 oz plus some and then I drink about 24 oz of unsweetened ice tea 

Calories 1335 

My headache was slightly better today, it started up again so I down some pineapple and that really helped alot.  My tummy was giving me trouble today and through friend investigation on Facebook it was decided that it’s probably more detoxing symptoms (my diet was really, really bad).

Thursday 9/19

I did about 15 minutes of clumsy  yoga with Rodney Yee before I gave up and foam rolled for about 10 minutes. 

I’m a little concerned that I won’t see magnificent results since Turbulence Training is literally (3) 30 minute workouts a week with 30 minutes of “light” activity on the other 4 days.  I’m following the plan as written but I really want to WIN the contest.  Craig Ballantyne says it works so… 


1:30 Big A$$ Salad (BAS) with tuna and 1/4 avocado and homemade balsamic vinaigrette 
3:30 1 cup pineapple, packet of natural almond butter (individual serving)
4:45 Just a Handful cashews, almonds and cranberries
8: 00 Spaghetti squash, zucchini & about 2.5 cups of homemade meat sauce

56 oz plus 24 oz ice tea

Calories 1431

Thursday 9/19

No workout today, had to take the kid to an eye appt. 1st thing.


1:30 Big A$$ Salad (BAS) with tuna and tomato, broccoli and 10 almonds  and homemade balsamic vinaigrette.  Busy at work and didn’t get to finish lunch until almost 5pm
5:30 1 cup pineapple
7: 30 Big A$$ Salad (BAS) with tuna, tomato, apples, broccoli and homemade balsamic vinaigrette
9:00 I tablespoon natural PB

56 oz plus 24 oz ice tea

Calories 1133

Saturday 9/21

Last “workout” for the week and I killed it.  TT 2.0 Beginners B, did the finisher twice with a 2 rounds of weighted hip thrusts at the very end.  Going to try and move to the Intermediate next week but it’s a definite step up in terms of effort.  Might have to scale it down a bit (2 circuits instead of 3 for a week or so)


1:00 3 scrambled eggs with broccoli and zucchini, 1 table spoon butter
2:30 1/2 an apple and 1 table spoon PB
4:30 1/2 table spoon peanut butter
6:00 Homemade chicken soup with potato, broccoli, zucchini & carrots
12:00 (am) shot glass of pepsi (worked from 7:30-2:00am)

56 oz plus 48 oz ice tea

Calories 795

Sunday 9/22

Rest day. I slept until about 9:30 after working until 2am (ugh!).  Took a 3 hour nap that was supposed to be a little cat nap – guess the cat was tired.

Food – had an enjoyable “free” day but kept it within limits – translated to “I didn’t wake up at 6am and start stuffing my face like on BFL free days”.  I did start my food day a little earlier with a tablespoon of natural peanut butter at 10 am. Veggie omelet at about 1:00 with a great piece of toast and a side of french toast (1 piece of homemade bread dipped in granola), made a pan of brownies and had 2 then topped it off with Loaded Baked Potato Soup and a small toasted french roll.  All in all about 2500 calories.
