[QUOTE=David Schneider;453453]Wow... Taking a week off is harder than any WOD, in my opinion. That's awesome Steve, enjoy it.

You deserve it :highfive:[/QUOTE]

I second this. Very few of us are smart enough to take time off from crossfit and REALLY heal. You'll come back stronger, with fewer aches.

Love your response, Keith! Hey, as long as I'm vertical, I can handle the intelligence (or lack thereof) issue. Besides, being intelligent is a highly overrated virtue!

As for my food log........if you're eating 5X of what I eat, I don't know where you are putting it. Then again, if you're working out with Christin, then you are definitely using all that food!

Rock on, Dude!!

Thanks, Justin. Already feel better. Hammies have stopped bugging me, knee feels better, and so does shoulder. The only down side for this week - - yesterday evening I was more sore and stiff than I've yet been from ANY CF workout. Spent 2 1/2 hours on our roof Sunday (8:12 pitch, so used safety rope - - got a good arm WO too pulling myself around) and then cleaned gutters/moved heavy ladder around for 6+ hours yesterday. Could hardly move last night........acted my age!

I'm probably going to begin SS around the first of the year too. I'm really ready to learn the oly lifts and start hoisting some serious weight. I know I can do it; I just need to do it the right way!

I am glad you had the courage to rest! Joe convinced me that the holidays are here and that I will likely get more rest days in, just not in a row, so there went my rest week. Luckily my knee stopped bothering me, so I am now just keeping up with my fish oil to control any inflammation.

Great diet! I've been trying to keep mine a little cleaner, but I've been working so much that it is often grab two cheese sticks and an apple and go leaving me rather unsatisfied at dinner and eating too many blocks at the end of the day.

I think work like that counts as "active rest."

I thought about doing a Starting Strength cycle, but I've decided instead to just add a little bit extra strength work into my workouts(which sometimes messes up my programming when I try to follow the mainsite WOD, but I want more strength, so that is a "sacrifice" I am willing to deal with :D ) What goals do you have that make you want to try SS?

Hi Elizabeth!

Thank you for your kind comments! I feel so much better, but I am literally chafing at the bit to do something exercise related. I have been absolutely thriving on my WOs, though I am apparently on the ragged edge for injuring myself. So, I need to be sure I keep up on my protein and don't get too tired. The fish oil/omega IIIs are good stuff. I take an Rx version which my Dr. has prescribed - - 4 grams per day. I'm also on the max Rx dose of Glucosamine Chondroitin (1200/1500). It all seems to help........We'll see.

You are too kind with regard to my diet! I've basically just taken the Core program from Weight Watchers and added protein to it. As it is, most everything equates right across as Zone. I'm eating very few simple carbs/sugars (coffee, the occasional garlic bread slice). Most of it is brocolli (YUM) and other low(er) glycemic index veggies. I love potatoes but they are one of the fastest ways to watch me need to take a nap......:rofl:. And yes.....I can relate to the cheese sticks and apple wedges "grab and run" meal!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Best wishes for continued awesome work you're doing!

Hey Stephen,

Looks like you're eating pretty darn good healthy stuff!

Re: the bread/panini, etc.,

I used to eat whole wheat toast for breakfast (along with other food too), and I used to eat sandwiches almost every day for lunch, and sometimes a slice of bread w/ cheese for afternoon snack.

I got rid of the bread. Once a week, at Sunday breakfast w/ friends, I'll have one slice of whole wheat toast w/ my meal. And if I eat out, and they have fantastic bread, then yes, I'll have a piece. But, my daily intake otherwise, is zero.

When I got rid of the bread, and added more protein, fruits and veggies, I started to lose body fat. Oh, and I haven't had pasta in about 3 months either (used to have it once a week).

Just some food for thought...no pun intended!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope your meal comes out perfectly. Your wife is so lucky to have a guy that cooks!!!
