I've been forgetting to post. I think I did one beginner, 1 intermediate, 1 open mat and one gym workout since last time.

All right, working on being more consistent, so here's my day.

Workout: BJJ open mat. We did a 30-min warmup and three 14-minute rounds.

Breakfast: 2 eggs & 2 strips of bacon
Lunch: cauliflower chicken
Dinner: Rotisserie chicken and a baked sweet potato

Might have a glass of champagne this evening.

Breakfast: leftover rotisserie chicken with a grated apple

Lunch: gluten-free cheese enchilada with corn tortillas

Snack: roasted seaweed chips

Dinner: beef tajine (carrots, onions, raisins, butter, etc.)

Oh, and I had some Evening in Missoula tea while waiting to meet with someone who ended up no-showing.

Workout:
No BJJ today, but there was Oly at 1, so I went down to that. Started with sn up to 24kg sets of 3 (my max is 28, but I've been out for a couple weeks), then c+j sets of 2 up to 36 (my max is 40), then did shoulder presses, I forget how high, then squatted up to 40 X 5, can't remember my max. And then some sit-ups.

Breakfast: bacon and eggs
Lunch: leftover beef tajine
Dinner: some rotisserie chicken and some frozen veggies (including potatoes)
also had ginger tea

work out: as to be expected, I was really sore from squatting yesterday, so did our intro BJJ class, which was singles, a collar choke from the whizzer and a hip switch/sitout/reguard from turtle.

Breakfast/Lunch: bacon, and then I realized I had no eggs, so I heated up some leftover chicken dish.
Snack: I had a mocha with whipped cream, but it was at an ice cream place where I met a friend, so I was proud of myself for not getting 3 scoops of Nicollet Avenue Pothole (which is the best name for ice cream, ever.
Dinner: this awesome soup Todd made. it had chickpeas, though. oh and some popcorn. I guess we're not strictly Paleo, though we're mostly Paleo and I am pretty strictly gluten-free.

Workout: None. I was thinking of going to BJJ, but 1) I'm still sore from squatting on Tuesday 2) I had three deadlines, a conference call and a meeting--just finishing up at midnight as is 3) we're leaving town tomorrow for Invicta in Kansas

No BJJ on New Year's, out of town for 2 days, and yet I still got 2 days of class in this week and 1 day of lifting...and I'll get one hotel workout in. Is that enough? Who knows. I still want to average 3X BJJ/week, so I'll do more next week. Tues Oly, Wed/Thurs/Fri/Sat BJJ. I have nighttime stuff on Mon and Tuesday but Oly ends earlier, so it works.

1-4
Breakfast: chicken and apple thingy
Snacks in the car: a mint condition cooler from Caribou, a bag of jerky
Hotel snacks: half a candybar, handful of fruit snacks, a small bag of baked chips and some Fig Newtowns b/c I was starving
Dinner: We went to some barbecue place. I hardly ate anything because the meat was so gross and I didn't want white bread. I did eat a lot of fries and a soda, though.
Honestly, Paleo + traveling = $, but I really should plan meals better, and at the same time I was finishing work on my laptop in the car while Todd was driving, and there's only so much pressure I can put on myself. But it's something I want to look at.
