Keep it Simple Silly

That's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. 
Simple can be harder than complex: 
You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.
But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, 
you can move mountains.  ~Steve jobs

If you haven't already...start NOW.

Get focused and keep it simple.  You know what to do. By now, you should know why you are ready to do it. The only thing in your way is you. Whether you had a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast or polished off the last of the Halloween candy. Step up to the plate and begin this morning. Might not be your first meal, but it is the beginning.
  • Starting weight: 131
  • Goals: Tighten it up. I am happy with weight and how I look but I could lose a bit of BF% (unofficially about 18%) and shred up a bit (so drop 1-2%), also performance. Yep, I want to lift a bit heavier ;), minimum 10% increase over the next month.
  • Measurements taken logged in Precision Nutrition site and put in WOD book for reference (I know the pics are kinda cruddy, but...they will work and keep me on track. Yikes! I feel exposed a bit.)
  • Labs ordered but not yet drawn (I am not a fan or needles, but the deed must be done and fasting)

Start the day:
Intermitten Fast this morning
7:30am Organic coffee black
9:30am WOD
11:00am Post workout - Butternut squash w/sausage & walnuts, green tea
1:00pm Leftover pork w/fresh steamed spinach

We'll see how the rest of the day pans out.

The plan is:
4pm Ham slices w/pineapple & cinnamon
7pm Beef & salsa wraps

There are so many great recipes popping up on fb right now. They are labeled paleo/primal but in reality, they are an embellishment to the guidelines. If you choose to enjoy them, do so in moderation ;). They are delicious and healthier. They are not actually real food for sustenance but treats and remakes of the SAD (standard American diet) addiction to sugar and carbohydrate. This is not about deprivation, just be aware and enjoy rather than just trade labels.
