Workout Notes:

Starting to incorporate my WOD or conditioning earlier in my workout so that I get it out of the way and can begin sweating as soon as possible. Working out at night after work, I can sometimes lose motivation if I wait to do my conditioning till the very end. Putting it in the middle of my workout not only allows me to get it out of the way, but it gives me a chance to work on my accessory movements while I am tired.

  • Killed my legs

So far not eating peanut butter and almonds has been working. We’ll see how it goes.

  • Sent out 50 emails today to Division2 baseball coaches to try to get a feel for how they thought about our idea. Excited to see if I get any feedback from them. Even if no one responds, at least it was a good first step in actually doing something productive and striving towards pursuing it.

  • Decided today that I am going to eliminate nuts from my diet. No peanut butter in my smoothies nor almonds as a mid morning snack. Instead I am going to get my healthy fat from avocado and coconut oil. Also, as a mid morning snack I am just going to have 1 hard boiled egg. See if my skin clears up by eliminating some of the fat.
