I did the following combination early this morning, just prior to the beginning of my workday. As is my usual, I worked-out on an empty stomach (I last ate at 7 PM the night before), save for my beloved morning redeye and hour-long dose of NPR via podcast (this morning was Terri Gross’s interview of Thomas Freidman — good stuff). Anyway, the gym work looked like this:
1. Single-Arm DB Snatch + Single-Arm Split-Jerk combo x 3 combos, each side
(Like this: Right side — Snatch, recover, Split-Jerk, recover, Snatch… x 3, then repeat for the left side x 3).
2. Parallel-Grip Weighted Pullups x 3’s
4 rounds at weight. Total gym time, including warm-up — 30-minutes.
The Day’s Meals Were as Follows:
8 AM, approximately 1 hour following my workout
2 eggs, softboiled. A half-palm sized cut of leftover ribeye. Leftover broccoli (from the night before) and a few strawberries.
A small ribeye, broccoli and a few strawberries
About 1 PM, and Again at 3 PM
A couple of handfuls of mixed nuts — walnuts, pecans, cashews, almonds.
Attended a wine tasting event. I drank approximately 10 oz’s total. Well worth it.
Highly, highly unusual — we went out to eat two nights in a row. To make matters worse, the group we were with wanted Italian; notoriously one of the toughest places in the world to be Paleo. I’m up for the challenge, though, and was able to piece together a salmon spinach salad. A surprisingly, a very Paleo meal. No croutons, no bread, and just a little cheese. Oil and vinegar for dressing. I think I just found a new restaurant!
One quick side note. Look at the time separation between my lunch and dinner. In my former life, I would have been drooling and weak from hunger. Tonight, I could have easily passed on dinner completely; not one hint of a hunger pang.
