one day it'll all make sense.

wandering in the dark

I’m feeing a little lost with this nutritional re-direction.  Read the specs and I’ve decided I should fall into the category of “medium female”.  With this being said, my day should be fueled by a block count of: 3 breakfast, 3 lunch, 1 snack, 3 dinner and 1 snack.  11 blocks in total over the course of the day.  Seems simple enough?  Not quite.  Here’s my food diary for today:


I’m already over my protein snd fat “goals” for the day, and I haven’t even added snacks yet!  Still room for some more carbs, but the calorie count seems drastically low.  This is tougher to get the hang of than I predicted.  Who knew veggies would add for much protein to a meal!  My dear Brussels… you’re messing up my plans.  I could cut back the chicken portion to stay within the 21 grams of protien per meal, but a 2oz chicken breast is like the size of 1 solitary chicken McNugget!  😮  From the portion guidelines Coach Dave posted on the CF Division page, I did laugh to myself when I saw some of the “1 block” equivalent when it comes to fat.  Get ready for snack time… would you like 3 almonds? 3 cashews? or 1 macadamia nut? haha!  Why bother?  That’s just a tease.  Guess if I ate no other fat over the course of the day, I could indulge on 11 macadamias, but filling the rest of my day with nothing but celery makes the macadamias a little less appealing.  “you should lose some body fat with this”  Coach Dave has mentioned.  No sh*t!!  It could be the difference in my ability to do strict pull-ups if I have less body weight to haul up over the bar I guess :p provided the muscles needed for the task stick around in the process.

Rest day from the box today.  Back at it tomorrow 🙂  My body is appreciative of the break.  My back has been sore the last two days.
