Yesterday was my 5 month anniversary with Crossfit. (Ha ha. Like how I talk about it like it's a person?)
When I started Crossfit, I was focused on not quitting, so I didn't put too much thought into what I was eating. I mean, I usually try to eat a low-carb diet, but I wasn't on any kind of plan, just eating what I thought I should.
Yesterday, I finally decided to try The Zone, which is the Crossfit recommended eating "style". I really knew nothing about it other than what my friend had told me about 3 block meals.
Um, what's a block?
Sunday night I spend nearly 2 hours putting together my menu for Monday. Yes, I said Monday. Not the entire week, just Monday. I was so confused!! But after many, many texts with a Zone professional (aka fellow Crossfitter), this is what I came up with:
I made a few changes, but overall, it turned out great! (Changes included adding 1/4 avocado to my lunch, only 3 almonds in the snack, and the last snack moved to 30 minutes before bed and changed to 1 cup strawberries, 2 slices deli ham, and 3 almonds.)
Last night it didn't take me nearly as long to put together my menu for today.
I must say, though, I'm already sick to death of eggs. They're not my favorite anyway, so I really need a different protein source for breakfast.
Has anyone ever done The Zone? Any tips??
PS - I feel the need to say that I'm not necessarily on a "diet". I'm not overweight and I'm not necessarily trying to lose weight, but I am trying to tone. I'm working out really hard with Crossfit and I'd like to be able to see the muscles I'm building. :)
