Day One

The 10am class on Sunday doing the main site WOD.

For those of you doing the Zone Challenge, today is your first day! How are you feeling? I'm hungry. Does anyone feel like the amount they are suppose to eat is too much? I'm already thinking about what I am going to eat tomorrow. It's going to be a pretty busy day, so I'm guessing that most meals will be quick and easy to measure out. Here's my Zone plan for Tuesday:

Breakfast: 2 blocks
14 grams of Fage 2% yogurt with 1 apple cut into it

Snack: 1 block
1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese lightly sprinkled with 1 cup of sliced starberries
coffee with 1/2 tbsp of 1/2 & 1/2

Lunch: 3 blocks
3 oz sliced deli turkey
2 cups of celery
1 apple with 1 1/2 tsp almond butter on it (it's not much almond butter, but at least it provides me with one perfect bite of apple and almond butter! I always save the best bite for last!)

Snack: 2 blocks
1 zone bar

Dinner: 3 blocks
4 1/2 oz of lean ground beef cooked with onions, garlic, crushed red pepper and Italian seasoning
2 cups steamed green beans seasoned with salt and pepper
1/2 of an orange for dessert
(I estimate that the olive oil used to cook the onions is enough fat and because there is 1/2 a cooked onion in one block, that I probably am only eating about 1/8 of a block of carbs from the onion. I will eat a little less green beans to keep everything balanced.)

snack: 1 block
1 oz cheese stick with 1/2 orange and 3 almonds

Because it will be such a long day and I want to eat within an hour of waking up as well as before I go to bed, I am spreading my meals out more than usual.
