    I'm not sure I'll have a lot of new material. My eating habits can get pretty repetitive while I'm dieting.

    I am trying to eat less meat, though. You'll see lots of meals with tofu and eggs in the weeks to come.

    I don't typically log what seasonings I use on food, but I've been heavy on the Tumeric and Cayenne as of late.

    I also add minced thai red chili peppers to just about everything I eat. It helps otherwise boring food stay interesting, therefore keeping me on track.

    looks yummy! I nearly went for stir fry last night, but ended up going for Greek.

    The veg content in that looks great.

    1300: Meal
    - chicken breast
    - rice
    - leftover grilled vegetables

    1630: Pre-workout Smoothie

    1830-2000: Training
    - 2 x 4 min rounds of Tabatas (one round consisted of push-ups and modified bicycle crunches, the other consisted of mountain climbers and jumping jacks)
    Note: My instructor gained three pounds on his all-inclusive holiday, so it's tabatas every class until he sheds that weight. :D

    - sparring
    - offence/defence drills
    - more sparring
    - 100 punches
    Note: I felt exhausted after class, and not in the usual good way. I feel sluggish and broken down. I don't know if it's the new workout, the supplements I'm taking, the lack of sleep taking it's toll, or all of the above. I'll give it another week or so before I consider dialing anything back. Maybe a restful weekend is all I need to feel right again.

    2030: Meal salad
    - leftover steak
    - salad greens
    - 1/2 avocado
    - blueberries
    - almond slivers

    Sorry that I haven’t been active. I’ve been very busy these last few months, and haven’t spent much time at home.

    On a more positive note, I have been promoted to 1st Kyu tonight.

    It’s time to get ready for that 10-man...

    Congratulations Jaydub - Onwards and upwards.
    I'm sure you already know this, but, do make sure that while you are physically preparing, you are also mentally preparing.
