A New Dish
It’s hump day–halfway through the work week. I woke up early today and in a great mood since Wednesday morning is a gym morning! Handling both kids this week makes life a bit hectic…let me give you a little taste of my morning:
- 4:50am – Drive son to swim practice and return home
- 6:00am- Drive daughter to bus stop and head to YMCA
- 6:45am – Drive son from YMCA to school and head back to YMCA
- 7:15am – WORKOUT!!!!!
I followed my normal routine by first testing to verify my body is still in a ketogenic state, which was positive and then I weigh myself using my FitBit Aria Smart Scale (to collect weight and body fat statistics for this blog). Take my dauly 5g dose of creatine and then, while driving to the gym to workout, I drank my pre-workout caffeine boost, a can of orange Celsius, and my BCAAs (I drink half right before lifting and the other half while lifting).
Following my normal intermittent fasting routine, I ate bacon, eggs, and a green smoothy (my Vitamix rocks!) about 1pm. I cooked a new dish for dinner, Paleo Pear-Ginger Pork Chops, made in the slow cooker–delicious! As a side dish I sauteed zucchini and yellow squash with garlic in Grassfed Organic Ghee seasoned with cracked pepper and sea salt. I have the most success following my version of Primal/Paleo when I cook and eat at home.
I hope you are powering through the work week, getting your workouts in and, as always…
Be smart in the kitchen and a beast in the gym!
