Day 3 on the Zone! Thank you all so much for the support you are showing each other. It really makes a difference to know that we are all in this together. If anyone feels inspired to take this a step further and make participating in the CrossFit Games the end result of all this work, you should sign up and join Kristy and Scott who will be participating and representing CrossFit Santa Cruz! Anyone interested? Check out the CrossFit Games new site for more info, interviews and to sign up!
Here is my Zone meal plan for tomorrow:
Breakfast: 3 blocks
1/2 an apple sliced with 1 1/2 tsp almond butter on them
Spray a pan with minimal olive oil and sautéed crushed pepper with minced garlic and add 5 cups of spinach and let steam under a lid. Add 1/2 a chopped tomato to the spinach and use as filling in an omelet of 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites. Melt 1 oz of grated cheese on top.
1 1/2 cup of sliced strawberries on the side
Lunch: 3 blocks
1 piece of sprouted whole wheat bread toasted with 3 tbsps of avocado spread on it. Heat up 3 oz of leftover steak and put it on top for an open faced sandwich. Drizzle lightly with balsamic vinegar.
Snack: 2 blocks
5 cups of chopped romaine, 1 cup of sliced cucumbers and 1/4 of an apple chopped up, 1 hard boiled egg sliced, 1 oz of string cheese (or an oz of your favorite soft cheese, for variety) cut into small pieces, with a small splash of olive oil and some balsamic vinegar
Dinner: 3 blocks
4 1/2 oz salmon that is seasoned with sea sail, pepper and lemon juice and grilled or pan fried in light olive oil (make sure to measure out your ounces after the salmon is cooked).
2 cups of steamed cauliflower with balsamic vinegar sprinkled on top
1/4 of a cup of corn cut off the cob
1 1/4 cup of sliced cucumbers seasoned with salt
1/2 cup of frozen grapes for dessert
Snack: 1 block
1/2 zone bar
Workout: Here is yesterday's workouts picked to help show your progress with the Zone:
1 mile run for time
Max pull-ups without leaving the bar
If you didn't get to complete these yesterday, try to fit them in some time this week in your warm up and write them down so we can compare your score in six weeks.
