Happy birthday Jay!

Ya, read the drama Jeff, :rolleyes:.
Tried to apply the Zone at one time but I didn't get the calories/protein needed from the textbook recommendations or the coach's. What I took from it is that proper protein-carb ratios will keep you from insulin spikes at meal time and fat is neutral (generally true for me).

Did a strict Paleo Challenge for 5 weeks earlier this year. It worked like a fad diet on me (I don't need weight loss). I got too lean, drawn out and saggy too fast. I actually hurt/ache/bruise all the time when eating low sat. fat that way. My solution is to eat what I call "Dirty Paleo". Moderate amounts of full fat dairy products, grains rarely, but not denied, any meat that is not over processed. Generally I trust my appetite and my moods for food choices - no supplements BTDT.

Oh sorry - I don't do strict Paleo either; I still eat 4 eggs for bfast , and I eat more (good) fats than they recommend; no processed foods, no grains or dairy other than whey protein after I train, 2-3 fruits a day; still going thru buckets of broccoli, spinach, et al.

I started out with Zone shortly after starting Crossfit, was always hungry. I attended Robb Wolf's Nutrition Cert in May at CA Athletics, that is where I really learned tons about Nutrition...but attending a full day seminar does not make you an expert. I switched to a Paleo Zone..eventually quit doing the Zone and eliminated Dairy. I follow Robb's recommendation on Fish Oil (really helps recovery). Now, I follow the Primal Blueprint more than anything. Consume grain fed beef, free range poultry/eggs and get our veggies from a local farm. In my opinion if you mix this type of diet with CrossFit and heavy Oly lifting you won't be saggy.

We are working on a new website and moving our box to a new location in Jan. 2000 sq ft. we are stoked about expanding.
Check out my bio (its actually more of a testimony) (WFS). [url]http://crossfitexcel.com/WOD/about/terry/[/url]

Happy Turkey Day to Everyone!

John - Good luck with your operation

Terry - I enjoyed reading your bio. Great pics. I learned something today. I checked out Escalon, Ca on the map.

I bet everyone here has an interesting bio.

I wanted to thank everyone for their birthday wishes.

Today's WOD
AMRAP 20 minutes
45 Jump rope
30 Sit ups
15 Burpees

I did an even 5 rounds. The box had only one class so I was able to work out with people who my only knowledge of them is notations on the board. I was happy because I was able to compete well with people half my age. I am the oldest competitive person there.

Happy Thanksgiving to all

explored the benefits of jumping in the inflated bouncer rented for my grandsons and hiking 2-3 miles in South Mt Park. good alternative for the day.

I hate morning workouts !!

11/27/09
Row 3000m - 12:18.3 (I think someone threw an anchor or at least a large quantity of turkey in the "boat")

KB Drills

WOD
30 seconds on/30 seconds rest
Deadlifts 225# (RXed) 4 rounds
Push Ups (Subbed ring push ups with feet elevated) 4 rounds
Repeat

Totals: 52 DL, 80 Ring push ups, - Score 132

This felt pretty good. Most of the younger folks scaled back the DL to 135. Only 2 of us did the RXed DL. My ring push ups were in about the center of the range of the youngsters' regular push ups.
I guess the kids must have partied a little too hard last night !
