Military Diet, day 3 and result!



DAY 3:

Breakfast
5 Saltine Crackers, 1 Slice of Cheddar Cheese, and 1 Small Apple

Lunch
1 Hard-Boiled Egg, and 1 Slice of Toast

Dinner
1 Cup of Tuna, 1/2 of a Banana, and 1 Cup of Vanilla Ice Cream



Finally, the third day.... All day I was OMG I'm hungry... But today, I was at home... So it was even harder than the last two day and I have to admit that I cheated at the end of the day, I was dying.... I eat some baby food....Like 1 tea spoon of baby food...

Anyway, tomorrow first thing in the morning: check the result!


And as I predicted.... drum roll...... Saturday December 22nd....

127.8 lbs....

Well I did lost 2 lbs. but God; I didn't eat at all for 3 days! LOL

I'm a bit disappointed I was hoping to have lost at least 5 lbs. I didn't feel a lot of change (on my physical) but I was wondering if I didn't lost 10 lbs. was it because I didn't do the diet the right way or maybe because I don't really have 10 lbs. to lose!

I also workout on the first day of the diet, on day 2 and 3 I was so exhausted from work that I didn't move after dinner. Surely this one would have helped me to lose maybe 1 to 2 pounds... (Even 2 pounds is big...), but I think it's a great way to realise how much you usually eat in one day. I did realise that I eat a lot each day. Of Course, I'm the kind of person who eats rather well; I love fruits, veggies, soy, seeds, meat, pasta, yogurt... I do love, crave cupcakes and candy but I can resist the urge! Mostly!

I will probably try it again later, maybe after the Holidays.


This picture was taken on Monday December 17th at 129. 8 lbs. After the Insanity Program


This one was taken on Wednesday December 19th. First day of the Military Diet.


This one was taken on Saturday December 22nd at 127.8 lbs.

I don't really see the physical change... :(


Thanks for ''following'' me through this little diet. Hope that my feedback helped you!

Day 2 of the Military Diet!


This diet is really hard, I think I would prefer eat salad for an entire month than to do this diet again! One word: Hungry
I'm hungry all the time, when I wake up, 1 hour after I ate the breakfast until noon, 1-2 hours after lunch until diner... And this week is crazy at work so I'm pretty tired and I don't know if I eat enough calories per day.

Things I want to eat right now:

mini apple pie

2 ingredient pumpkin brownies
Parmesan Crusted Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe | Two Peas & Their Pod


Crock pot cinnamon almonds - very easy, very good, great gift!

YES!!!!! Pumpkin Doughnuts: BAKED To Perfection Recipe

spinach ricotta pasta

Yummy!!!

So for my second day I got :


Breakfast: 1 egg, 1 Slice of Toast, and 1/2 Banana

Lunch--1 Cup of Cottage Cheese, 1 Hard Boiled Egg, and 5 Saltine Crackers

Dinner--2 Hot Dogs, (no buns), 1 Cup of Broccoli, 1/2 Cup of Carrots, 1/2 Banana, and 1/2 Cup of Vanilla Ice Cream

Looking forward for the result Saturday December 22nd morning!

First day of this Military Diet!


Wednesday 19th, first day of the Military Diet

DAY 1:
Breakfast--1/2 Grapefruit, 1 Slice of Toast, 2 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter, and Coffee or Tea

This one was easy to do and I was full at the end, enjoyed the mix of grapefruit and toast! Had a tea this morning.

Lunch--1/2 Cup of Tuna, 1 Slice of Toast, and Coffee or Tea (any brew, as long as it's caffeinated)
I was so hungry when it was noon; I was craving this canned tuna as if it was Cupcakes and Jelly Beans! Had a Chai tea!

Dinner--3 ounces of any type of meat, 1 Cup of Green Beans, 1/2 Banana, 1 Small Apple, and 1 Cup of Vanilla Ice Cream

I had some slice of turkey and change the green beans into 1 cup of Spinach. This was good but I already miss my pasta (with pesto and cheese!!!)! LOL Nice dessert BTW!

So my weight (took on Monday, December 17th) was 129.6 lbs. For those of you out there who are checking my stats or have been following some of my post (at the beginning) I was at 123.6 lbs. so I mainly took 6 lbs. not only since my Knee Injury, but also since I finished the Insanity program from Shaun T.

SO I restarted the program last Monday (it was awful) I could clearly see and feel the difference, I wasn’t in a good and respectful shape anymore. And I finished the Insanity program at the end of October!!!!! OMG!!! Looking at the Christmas Party/Holidays with suspicious eyes and envy!

I will try to post my feedback of this 3 days diet and check out at the end for my results: you are supposed to lost 10 pounds with that one (ahah, I would love to see that!)

Then, I had this workout from Blonde Ponytail, a lovely blog I found this summer:

Back on track!


It's almost has been a month since I post something.... Well, with the knee injury, it wasn't easy to work out. I did mostly my arms and abs but didn't feel I had to post about it.... Anyway since then, my knee is better, the pain almost gone! Next week, I will come back with the CrossFit Mamas post and I also will ''restart'' my crossfit session! YAY I can't wait mostly because I gained some weight and the holidays haven't started yet!

Knee Injury!


Yesterday was a hard day for me, when I saw the WOD at CrossFit Mamas, I knew I couldn't do it without a struggle. 

Thursday 11.15.12
"Murph"
(Mamas style) 

For time:
1 mile Run
100 Push-ups
200 Sit-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run

Partition the push-ups, sit-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run.


A few days ago a probably did a ''wrong'' movement and an old knee injury's returned. I decided to do an Insanity Workout instead of The WOD at CrossFit Mamas (Thursday November 15th, 2012), but this morning, my knee is killing me! (The one I felt is explained by the green writing...)

I know I shouldn't stop working out, but for tonight, I will do a recovery workout (from the Insanity program) and take it easy for the weekend.
Well I might try it anyway .... (bad me)

Friday 11.16.12
21-18-15-12-9-6-3 reps of:
Crossfit sit-ups
Squats

Shouldn't be so hard for my little knee, if I do the squats the right way!


I hope I will be back on track on Monday November 19th!

Friday WOD from CrossFit Mamas and Running Injuries!



WOD from CrossFit Mamas!

runners

One thing you should know is that I hate running! I have some problems with my right hip and I always suffer from it at the end of the run (and days later!)

 

Anyway at home I only got the Elliptic. I did the running part on it, it's really different from running, the movement isn't the same and as proof, I never get bored and I wasn't hurt! Anyway, here is my result: 7:20 (with 20 lbs. push-press dumbbells!)

Run 300 meters
20 Push press, 20 lbs.
Run 300 meters
15 Push press, 20 lbs.
Run 300 meters
10 Push press, 20 lbs.
Run 300 meters
5 Push press, 20 lbs.

I was totally washed out after this one :P


Oh I forgot to mention that I did the Dead Lifts with 30 lbs. for yesterday WOD!

Spinach Tomato Orzo Soup



Ingredients

1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 lb. spinach, fresh or frozen, defrosted
1 – 15 oz. can dice Italian tomatoes (with oregano and basil)
1 lb. package orzo pasta
2 quarts chicken or vegetable stock
2 quarts water
Olive oil
(I add some cooked turkey breast pieces into it for more proteins!)

Method

1. Preheat a large soup. Drizzle with olive oil. Add onions and saute until tender. Add garlic and saute for 2 – 3 minutes. Add canned tomatoes, spinach, chicken or vegetable stock and water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium.

2. Add orzo cook for 12 – 15 minutes or until orzo is tender.

That's it!

21-18-15-12-9-6-3 reps for time of
Sumo deadlift high pull 20lbs
 +
Lateral jumps over 18'' obstacle

Oufff! Yesterday I did the WOD from CrossFit Mamas and it wasn't an easy one....I think I did a good time, but the lateral jumps weren't really over 18'' obstacle... I did my best: I jump over 12'' and did a little over so I guess it was enough, but might have taken me more than 9:13 minutes to do it!

For time:
Run 500m
30 bench 20 lbs
Run 1000m

I wasn't able to do it so... no time! :(

Granola Bars, my personal recipe!


This is my personal recipe for granola bars!

 If you want to make them Protein bars, just add 1 or 2 scoop of your favorite flavor protein powder.


1C. Almond Butter (I use the crunchy one) you can use Natural Peanut Butter (crunchy or not) or even normal Peanut Butter (crunchy or not) but this one will be more caloric.

1C. Smashed Pumpkin
3/4C. Honey

1/2C. Nuts (as you wish: I put pumpkin seeds, walnuts...)

1 T.s of each: Chia Seeds, Weat Germ smashed Flax Seeds (all optional)


1/4C. Shredded  Unsweetened Coconut

1/2C. Chocolat Chips (optional)

2-3C. Oats


Put the Almond or Peanut Butter 20sec in the microwaves.

Put all the ingredients together in a big bowl and mix well.

Put the mixture in a 9x13 pyrex plate, put in the oven for at least 25 min at 350 F (until it's golden on top)

Cross Fit 101 (#1) Done!


First day at Cross fit L.!
So far it was great; I had a lot of fun with my friend who came with me. I didn't expect to like it that much! And I didn't expect my friend to be that good either!

Since it was our first try, we did the Cross fit 101 course and now it HURTS! OMG and I thought I was in shape after doing the Insanity program!

Yeah!I have to confess that I didn't stretch before and after the workout, so the blame is on me! But it was fun and wow one hour has passed so quickly! Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I'm eager to take my Cross fit 101 #2 and do some more squats!

LOL I can't even do the real push-ups...Because they go all the way down and I can't go back!!!! Well, someday I will, let the bitch out! LOL!

Also I started to follow this awesome blog : Cross Fit Mamas, I'm not a mama but the WOD sounds great, things you're able to do at home without to many equipment and other bloggers and followers, write theirs timing. I think it's interesting! I'll let you know!
