Oct. 23, 2020
AM: 50-minute jog
PM: dragon squats

Breakfast: salmon, broccoli, pine nuts (5 blocks)
Lunch: not much of one except a few almonds and a granola bar on a SAR callout. Not Zoneworthy, but I kept it clean and small (??? unbalanced blocks)
Snack: cashew milk, berries, protein powder (3 blocks, to compensate for missing lunch)
Dinner: salmon, broccoli, pine nuts, kombucha (5 blocks)


Oct. 24, 2020
AM: 2-hour ruck, light but FAST. I pretty much ran the whole second half, but I PR'ed for the course.
PM: crawling workout

Breakfast & Lunch: these were just a series of 2-block snacks in a busy day. All balanced except for one creamy coffee. (??? blocks)
Dinner: salmon, samosa, cabbage, apple, cashews (7 blocks, to compensate for undereating during the daytime)
^^Note: Zone author Barry Sears recommends against eating more than 6 blocks at once. He believes the thing about only being able to absorb 35g of protein at once.

Thur., Oct. 29, 2020
PM: spiral squats and crawling

Eating was restrained and basically Zone-balanced, but unmeasured. I was just eyeballing it.


Fri., Oct. 30, 2020
Travel day
My eating was completely off the fucking reservation. The only accomplishment I can claim is that when I finally freaked out and stress-ate at night, it was on pseudo-healthful Trader Joes bars instead of chocolate or ice cream.


Sat., Oct. 31, 2020
PM: 270 swings in sets of 10-30 with 16kg and 24kg

Breakfast: cauliflower, butternut squash, salmon (5 blocks)
Lunch: same as breakfast (5 blocks)

First half of November was spent on the road and in a certain amount of chaos. I maintained workouts at about half the usual frequency, did a little LISS but not much, and was off The Zone regiment, though there were only two or days in which I was wantonly eating crap.

Sat., Nov. 14, 2020
Breakfast: smoothie (half & half), protein powder, berries (5 blocks)
Snack: protein powder, maca, half & half (1 block)
Lunch: almond tortilla, eggs, tomato sauce, turkey (5 blocks, but I forgot the fat)
Dinner: broccoli, salmon, BBQ sauce, pistachios (5 blocks)

Breakfast: cabbage, cassava tortillas, fat-free cheese, eggs (5 blocks)
Lunch: same (5 blocks)

Appetite back under control. I'm guessing that it was both a matter of eating enough fiber and also the kombucha helping get my gut flora back to normal after all the traveling.

I slept badly again, woke up late and with no appetite. Feeling sort of seasonally affective, which is the signal for me to bring my Happy Light out of storage.
