Ate a whole chicken for dinner, very caveman. And had the most delicious pink grapefruit for dessert. Taste buds are definitely more sensitive, food is tasting extra great lately.

Took a walk for lunch again today, weather has been great. Was extremely hungry after work so I skipped my workout and came straight home to eat dinner. Might need to up the calories for the next couple of days for the big race on Sunday.
17

SU11/13/2011NoNoYes - 15 min12 mile obstacle course from hell - 3 hrs 15 minYesBreakfast: 4 eggs, grapefruit; 10:00 snack: protein bar; During race: 3 bananas, 2 protein bars, 1 shot of Gu, fruit snacks; After race: protein bar, banana; Dinner: pound of pulled pork, 1/2 pound smoked salmon salad, 2 sweet potatoes, bag of mixed vegetables, grapefruit.
Ran the Tri-State Tough Mudder today! Holy hell it was hard, but I finished it. Cheated with the detox as protein bars have whey protein (dairy) and wheat and the shot of Gu had caffeine. Didn't care, I needed every last calorie today. I did pass on the free beer at the end though. Going to finish the remainder of the detox super strong.
21
MO11/14/2011YesYesYes - 20 minWeights - 25 minYesWeight: 218.8; Breakfast - grapefruit; 10:30: carrots/hummus; Lunch: 2 sweet potatoes, can of chicken, carrots/hummus; 5:00 snack: grapefruit; Dinner: 3 filets of tilapia, 2 whole zucchini sliced/sauted, 1 bag of green and yellow beans. I'm strangely feeling good today. Pretty sore, but not as bad as the last Tough Mudder. Managed to grind out a chest/arms workout, the only part of me that works right now. Going ultra clean on the diet until Thanksgiving.
22
TU11/15/2011YesYesYes - 30 minWeights - 25 minYesBreakfast: 4 eggs, grapefruit; Lunch: 2 sweet potatoes, can of chicken and turkey quinoa soup (turkey, quinoa, carrots, celery); 2:30 snack: almonds; Dinner: 1 can of tuna and 1 side mixed veggies (zucchini, peppers, carrots, squash); 8:00 snack: green smoothie (spinach and frozen berries). Looking a little soft today, I think I've been overdoing it on the carbs lately with all the sweet potatoes. I think I'm overtraining a little too.
23

Open bar and food stations every 20 feet. Only cheated a little though. Some beer and a few little nibbles of dessert. And you can't go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter without tasting some Butterbeer. Other than that, stuck to the detox all day. Woke up this morning and I was down to 214. I can see a noticeable difference in my midsection already.
