+ quest bar, cream cheese, coconut oil coffee. lettuce wrapped blue cheese burger. sashimi and seaweed salad. so. much. champagne. (some even drunk in a rich, white lady, secret bathroom). oh and olives. and almonds at the ~fancy~ bar.
-hour of “power yoga” which really just felt like a hot pilates class. meh. walked 7 miles (which is a record for me in the last 30 days since i’ve mostly been in front of a computer)
i got invited to the nordstrom vip card holder champagne party. i mean i was my friend’s +1. i am currently wearing their zella leggings (oops i wasn’t supposed to buy anything other than a bra i can’t stop thinking about) and they actually may be better than wunder unders. but will they stand up to the ultimate test of hot yoga?!?! we shall see.
(ps. i have never needed chipotle more in my life than right when i woke up at 7 am.)
(pss. i am the queen of social faux pas lately. i sent d a text that said “naked date, later?” to which he didn’t respond. TURNS OUT, he didn’t turn his iMessage notifications off and that popped up while he was giving a work presentation. heh. i’m just going to die now.)
A day of delicious foods. Pumpkin cream cheese crepes. Bacon. Programming red wine, almond, cheese, prosciutto break (D ate the maple nuts). Beef pho (no noodles, extra veggies). Choco almonds (killed em).
I skipped yoga because queasiness/anxiety took over for unknown reasons.
I got a puffy coat so east coast here I come!
I made an awkward social faux pas. I saw a friend of D’s was having a Christmas party on FB sooo I clicked on the link assuming he’d be invited and I’d come too so for ~planning~ purposes but it turns out I accidentally added myself to the guest list. ESCAPE, DELETE I screamed at my phone to no avail. When I got myself off the list I laughed at my idiocy with D. What are you talking about, he asks. To which I learn the party had ALL OF A sudden been made private and he was not invited. Now he’s sad and I feel like a jackass.
Coconut oil coffee. Cream cheese pb crepes and bacon. Brie scramble and arugula. Smoked Gouda bacon guac burger. Most deserved wine spritzer.
15 reps descending ladder of squats to push-ups to sit-ups. 12 min. Vinyasa. 30 min.
Crop tops only inside. I didn’t go outside today. Instead I… Finished my personal website/project and made an awkward introduction video (fffffuuuuu iMovie). If you want to see my site (know my full name) it’s joslyn[lastname] (dot) com (slash) solarsystem. The next step is a possible interview. I’ve never had a coding interview! (/panic) So exhausted.
Also, D is too stressed about work to get naked BUT I SEE HIM MOSTLY WATCHING HUNGER GAMES WITH ME/NOT his laptop.
-pizza frittata (5 eggs, cauliflower, spinach, garlic, butter, parm, tomatoes, salami) w/ D
-seared salmon salad, fatty salmon collar, dry wine spritzer
-whipped cream, diet cocoa
-lots of handstand holds
-so much hip, ham, quad mobility
-squat and deadlifts (light day)
-5 min warmup and cool down on Airdyne
Frittata slice. My favorite (read most hated) quad/hip stretch. Sunset spritzer and work. I finished my site and comets shoot across the screen! D always yelling me to get lower in squats. Here’s the thing… I can’t yet. I have freakishly long thighs so it’s just awkward. I just discovered this and am trying to think of stretches and mobility work arounds. Thoughts?!
no calorie counting BUT:
- bulletproof coffee
- bacon, asparagus, egg, hollandaise (searching after the elusive no-break method)
- tea, heavy cream, salami
- a (hashtag classy) shared pot of crab, shellfish, butter (he ate the corn/potatoes)
- dry wine spritzer
an hour walk. some handstand hops.
i’m in the second round of applications to my ruby on rails program! BUT (a big one) i found out on friday that i should have a professional site, a portfolio on github, and a minute max introduction video (i’m so akward in videos nonono) submitted monday. so, bye weekend and crossfit lady’s night. i’m making a website on ~THE solar system~.
it’s already October 8th (keto day 3)?! :
breakfast (not pictured) - cheesy egg, broccoli, chorizo scramble and bulletproof coffee. ricotta/coconut milk/cream cheese pb mousse. skin on chicken baked with prosciutto and hollandaise. my hollandaise broke (ARGGGH) but it still TASTED delicious so oh well. butter bomb. feel fuzzy? look fantastic! and hello, baby bicep.
1890kcal / 155g fat / 95g protein / 25g carbs (20 net)
stupid keto flu. felt like a fuzzy dehydrated slug waking up until a couple hours after sodium supplementing and coconut oiling up. walking uphill is a challenge. but hey, it’s working? SOMETHING is happening. i look forward to adapted workouts. yassssss.
oh man, oh man, keto day 2.
bulletproof coffee. split plate of cream cheese crepes and bacon. salmon, fried halloumi (OMG), and arugula. cream cheese “mousse” with toffee caramel whey. stuffed flank steak with pecorino, peppers, and spinach. chicken broth and butter.
1500 kcal/ 110g fat/ 20g carbs/ 95g protein
hmmm, protein was a little high for day 2. oh well. everything was delicious. never felt hungry although I enviously watched D eat grapes and sea salt rice crackers with hummus. keto flu may be kicking in. started feeling groggy and light headed before dinner, before the broth. early bedtime ho.
first day of keto, last nice Seattle day.
first bulletproof coffee (omg SO good I’m not sure why it took me so long to try this). post alley. chorizo, egg, avocado, and halloumi (so squeaky, so delightful). roasted chicken on arugula with avocado and olive oil. macro breakdown or 1300 kcal/101g fat/60g protein/20g carbs total.
I suspect the main temptation will be in social drinking and eating with D, who eats 4,000+ calories a day and lots of fruit/sweet potato/coconut ice cream goodness.
going to hot yoga in booty shorts and a sports bra was a mistake. self conscious city. i am not THAT lean. i have tummy real rolls. i have a lot of cellulite on my hammies. i’m sitting around 22-23% bf. that’s okay but it’s distracting. more muscles, please. i was happiest around 17-18%. i’ll start keto by the end of the month + consistent lifting again, sheesh.
my poor computer is on its last legs. so much struggle in class last night. i bit the bullet and charged a new one, one my dev friends are envious of. goodbye, paid-off credit card. >_< ‘twas a necessary investment before i start my Ruby class (IF i get accepted… *fingers crossed* for a scholarship as well).
yellow. sunshine. new “lightning” nail color (because I haven’t bit for three weeks). the hottest yoga. open hammies. tight hips. oysters and rosé on the Sound. two of my favorite industry chefs for whiskey and a freakin’ pig’s head (radiator whiskey). weird but the most deliciously smoked and crackly meat i’ve ever had. bones back for soup. to-go tinfoil goose. touristy pike place shot. zig zag cheese plate. pineapple kombucha.
NOT paleo. but it WAS a once in a lifetime sort of day.
also, new Black Milk package! D hid the package under my pillow!
currently - lady gaga dance sans pants party (dancing the cramps away *fingers crossed* for le gym later)
August 7th, a pretty grand day
almond flour blueberry pancakes, homebrewed kombucha, spicy coconut milk chicken soup (for le cold)
150 burpees for time (28:15) - UM. I totally didn’t think this was going to be as awful as it was. The last 50… *shakes head*
1/2 of the 4th season of Breaking Bad
So much to be thankful for. I’m so lost in life… to the point of anxiety attacks and depression at times but the friends and family I have in my life are top notch, loyal, and make me laugh until my ribs feel like they’re going to explode. And not only that, but, supposedly D and my “honeymoon” stage is over and we’re still more in love every day. Treasure those that still want to be around you when you’re grumpy and have snot dripping down your nose.
Forever a believer in “feel like shit, don’t look like shit” and so… white denim and a tied button up brought my mood up.
Luna walked around like a orange-nosed clown all day because she got into my paleo marinara I made for faux-noodles. Jerk.
75 minutes of yin. Sometimes when I end in savasana I float above my body and wink at myself. Twelve minutes of frog pose might make you go transcendentally crazy as well.
Now that I’m basically off this cleanse, I’m ready to lift heavy/sprint again. Come to me, teeny bikini I want to wear in two weeks in Lake Chelan.
I was still sad and stressed about work when D got home so he skipped his TechCrunch nerd event and we got a bottle of wine and scallops… even though we have a date night Wednesday (halfiversary). Love.
July 12th - Cleanse Day 3
(I’m done, yayyy.)
- "Prepare" - cherry, lemon, cayenne
- ALL THE GREENS - broccoli, cucumber, celery stalk, spinach, kale, lime, green apple, blended avocado
- "Eliminate" - kale, apple, parsley, cucumber + lemon juice + coconut water
- Yogini Yellow - pineapple, lemon, golden pear, ginger, celery stalk, half cucumber, blended banana
- "Recharge" - brazil nut, cashew, cocoa
Great day. Placebo effect or w/e, I felt ahhh-some. So awesome, even through hot vinyasa, that I want to keep the momentum going. I met up with some girlfriends for a “Girl’s Night” and they ordered Indian Food and wine as my mouth watered. I stuck it out with my coconut water/yellow mixture. I almost caved with a glass of wine when the movie The Host was put on (nothing drives a person to alcoholism like Stephanie Meyer) but I pulled out some almonds and was *thumbs up*. Now, I will start bringing eats back. Bring on the huge quinoa salads, sashimi, seaweed, and… roasted poultry (before I roast the pug)!
I took a “before” picture. I’ll take an “after” when I’m done juicing for the week. I’m thinking one big meal a day, more juice, almonds whenever until my produce is all gone.
July 11th - Cleanse Day 2
- "Prepare" (lemon, cherry, cayenne)
- "Eliminate" (kale, apple, cucumber, parsley) + coconut water
- cucumber, kale, apple, broccoli, lime, ginger, avocado
- "Om Orange" (carrots, sweet potato, orange, peach, ginger, lime, celery)
- A mix of 3 +4 + shot of cranberry juice
- "Recharge" - (brazil nut, cashew, cocoa)
Today I didn’t have a caffeine withdrawal headache or maybe I headed it off with green tea. EITHER WAY, SCORE. Hot hatha felt AH-MAZING today, like I was extra okay with my body in just a sports bra. I took a little nap and the idea that the pug was a giant, roasted chicken went away but I still ate a handful of almonds and carrots to take away a fuzzy feeling I had. I think I’ll stick with all juice for the third day and on the fourth start transitioning in big salads, cous cous, sashimi, and roast poultry. Now, I’m sipping chamomile and trying to learn CSS. Early bedtime, puh-lease.
