Happy Birthday Aidan!
Quickly, Today’s WOD: Aidan’s 40th birthday, and the lady worked HARD on this one. Congrats Aidan! We started with single support deadlifts (for me: new 30 lb PR: 5 x 45 / 5 x 75 / 5 x 95 / 5 x 115 — PR) and then did 21-18-15-12-9-6-3 of Sumo Deadlift High-Pulls and Push Jerks (Result: 12:08, Rx’d at 75 lbs). This was also the CrossFit.com mainsite WOD on Sat., Aug. 28th. Tough WOD. Fun times. I LOVE CrossFit.
Generally, My Health, Nutrition, Etc.: My sleep has not been good, probably for two reasons: stress is unavoidable in my life right now, and I drink too much coffee. Other than that, everything, I mean everything, feels like it’s on track. For that reason only, I should be trumpeting the fact that I’m “100% paleo” right now (as if such a thing really existed). 3 meals a day, none of this constant grazing and snacking bullshit. Full 11-12 hour fasts every day (running 7:30-8:30 pm to 7:30-8:30 am every day). Limited fruit. Plenty of protein and fat. Veggies at every meal. Absolutely no sugar, dairy, grains, legumes, or alcohol. Eating almost exclusively whole foods, with very little factory processing and packaging (seriously; exceptions are some fat sources, esp. Fish Oil, Coconut Butter, Olive Oil, Smoked Salmon, and Nitrate Free Bacon). It feels good. Going on about 10 days now (since Aug. 22nd).
