Breakfast: 11:00am
  • 2 poached eggs with pepper
  • 1 small tomato, sliced, with sea salt and freeze-dried basil
  • 1/3 c Amam's granola
  • 1 little raspberry yoghurt
  • 1 c water
  • 2 c coffee (half-caff) with whole milk as creamer
  • not shown: 40 drops of nettle tincture in water, 500mg Vitamin C and 1 capsule Omega 3-6-9
Notes: Watched "Julie and Julia" last night and it totally inspired me (hence the poaching). I was tempted to saute the eggs in a little butter once they were done, to do even more of a tribute, but I was hungry. Very cute movie, although the heroine really is a bit of a bitch, but a very real-feeling one. I'm sure my feelings on the subject are swayed by the fact that I also know about her second book, in which she describes cheating on her saint of a husband in sometimes nauseating detail. But Amy Adams is adorable as always, and Meryl Streep is god. This movie almost made me want to eat meat. Almost. Just the boeuf bourguignon.

Lunch: 2:00pm
  • 2 pieces Wasabread
  • 1 packet of tuna, mixed with 1T real mayo and about 1.5T pickle relish
  • 1 small tomato, sliced, with a little pepper on top
  • 5 or 6 decent handfuls of raw baby spinach, wilted with about 1T EVOO, a good splash of pine ACV and a pinch of sea salt, then seasoned with a couple drops of sesame oil
  • 500mg Vitamin C and 1 capsule Omega 3-6-9
  • 1/2 c 2% milk
Notes: The spinach was decently flavoured but really kind of watery and gross-ish, texture-wise. Next time I'll try heating the oil in the pan til it's practically on fire, not using any liquid seasonings, and tossing the leaves for only a few seconds so they don't get mushy. What kinds of dry spices go with spinach?

So just last night I realised that the little glasses I use for beverages actually only hold about a half-cup. So I'm probably dehydrated. Do they make drinking glasses with liquid measurement lines on the side? I'm sure they do. On with the hunt!

Pre-Crossfit snack: 5:20pm
  • porridge! ~1 c water, 1/4 c 2% milk and a dash of salt set to boil. When it started simmering, I dumped in 2T currants and 9 chopped-up almonds. At the boil, in went 1/2 c rolled oats, 1/2 c shredded slippery elm bark and 1T slippery elm powder. Let that stew for a while, then when it was set enough, swirled in 1T honey (local, raw, delish), 1T PB (not local or raw but still yum) and about 2T whole milk, just to cool it down
  • 2 c water with 40 drops of nettle tincture
  • 400m sprint as a warm-up
  • with a 25-lb KB, the following: 10 Russian swings, 50m high-knees sprint, 10 Russian swings, 50m ass-kicker sprint, 15 single-handed Russians (switching hands each swing), 50m high skips, 15 single-handed Russians, 25m walking lunges, 10 air squats, 25m walking lunges, 10 American swings
  • 10ish minutes of tactical dumbbells: thrusters, push presses, etc
  • WOD: 3 rounds for time: 400m sprint, 15 thrusters (2 12lb dumbbells), 20 sit-ups, 30 walking lunges. I was somewhere over 20 minutes. Maybe 22 or 23.
Notes: That's right, bitches. Our warm-up is your workout. This one kicked my ass tonight - I'm not sure if it's just still getting back on track after the hiatus or what, but I just feel like lead. Meh.

Dinner: 8:30pm

  • 2 c roasted veggies, sauteed briefly in about 2t butter
  • 2 oz parmesan, melted and crisped in the pan. omgz it's crackers made entirely of cheese.
  • about 0.5-0.75c low-fat yoghurt
  • 1/2 c chocolate milk with 2%
  • 500mg Vitamin C and 1 capsule Omega 3-6-9
  • 2 c water
Notes: I found drinking glasses with measurement lines w00t! I definitely don't need one right this second but these would be nice to have at some point. Mental note.

Today's been a lot better, trich-wise. Maybe 10 times I pulled, as opposed to dozens and dozens these past few weeks, daily. I'm still fiddling with my hair a lot, though; tugging on strands even though I don't actually pull them out. As a result my head is rather sore. I'm definitely getting a haircut in the next week so that should help. I'm thinking bangs.


  1. Just get a water bottle and measure the capacity then chug out of that all day! By the way, brekkie looks really good today. Love you!

  2. Yeah, I could do that...but I like to have things in nice dishes for my pics. And also not to have to drag a big container around all day. Unless it's a mega-size recycled chocolate syrup bottle.

    Thank you! Poached eggs are the shizzle.
