Simply Human Lifestyle -- Monday


AM -- woke around 7 AM // slept better than I thought I would considering what the cedar was doing to my eyes, nose and throat // total of about 11 hours but had a few bouts of being awake throughout the night

PM -- watched a couple of TEDtalks and was in bed a little after 10 PM


Ended up doing a 26 hour fast. Glucose right before I ate was 81 -- good. Didn't feel bloated at all today since I kept fructose to nearly zero yesterday on a high-carb day. Normally on a high carb day (my former cheat days) of wheat, sugar and a bunch of junk -- I was swollen for like three days after)

Black coffee at around 11 AM this morning.

Pre workout -- BCAs and about 5 olives

Post workout -- 1/4 c rice, 1/3 c coconut milk, cocoa powder, BCAs -- it was the worst thing I have ever put into my mouth. Those BCAs are just too chalky too add to anything

Dinner -- leftover pastured pork roast from yesterday // leftover chuck steak from Friday // large salad (romaine, tomatoes, carrots, avocado, olive oil (butter flavored), salt and pepper) // 6 oz raw Swiss cheese


10' warmup

3x10 shoulder press with 80# (I did this on Friday about started my 4 lift rotation over this week)

3x15 bent row with 80# (I'm going to start doing some pull work during my heavy lifting -- bent rows with shoulders, high pulls with DL, pullups with squat and cleans with bench -- varying reps and weights on the pulls)

3 supers sets of

10 thrusters with 95

10 pulls ups (overhand with smallest resistance band for assistance)

200m run

rested 3' then 2' 

Total time of 11:06 -- all sets unbroken



Can't believe I woke up able to breathe out of my nose.

The girls are negative for flu and strep so that's good.

Had an absolute blast interviewing Vinnie Tortorich and Anna Vocino with Rick today. That show will air January 21st.
