Clean Eatin’, Dirty Thinkin’

“I am not a snob; it is simply that I am not interested with what most people have to say, or what they want to do – mostly with my time.” – Charles Bukowski, Notes of a Dirty Old Man

I’m one week in with Two Grand, a new-to-me app for logging your eats and developing new habits. So far, I am having a lot of fun with it! Anyone else a sucker for a reason to take pics? Anyone? I signed up thinking it would be interesting to have a visual timeline of my eating habits, or rather, “I wonder how many times in a month I actually… eat out/ indulge in an entire pint of McConnell’s Salted Caramel Chip Ice Cream/ purchase cups of delight (espresso)”… You get the idea.

I really like the app, which is similar to other social media apps in that you can follow and be followed (when you put it that way !?!). I’m currently stalking a few folks, other ladies who lift, fellow paleoites, and a couple people with fun handles, but foremost, I’m in for me.

Beyond seeing what other people consume, it’s interesting to see the words folks assign to their pics. Ranging from the obvious, “lunch,” to the specific, “one ounce of gluten-free, grass-fed cheese from a goat named Ralph located on the northern slope of Mount BFE,” you can pick up a lot from what people say about their visuals. Bottom line, and yet again, we are all here for different reasons, with different goals and different definitions of health.

Two Grand in the background, I came across an article that addresses what has to be the most annoying word ever assigned to food. “Clean is for underwear, not food,” covers it all; the primary point being the term itself, “clean eating,” is ambiguous and inherently judgmental. And it kicks off with a pair of superhero BGPs. AND the author, Lacy Davis, says fuck a lot. We could totally be friends.

So, eat the clean food. Eat the dirty food. If you want a cookie, eat a cookie. And sweet baby Jesse, just say no to the pucks of suffering!

Now, to the dirty thoughts. Yeah, that was just an easy title. So those are all you, friend. Should you need some inspiration, I give you John Hamm. Have at it!

Monday | Started the day with a jaunt to the top of “A” Mtn.

From the top of Tempe Butte: Summer is… here.

During the first EMOM of the day – with the 1-1/4 squats – I really had to focus on keeping the right glute engaged through that third rep. Took a few rounds to catch myself, and then a couple to correct it. The death march was awesome like it sounds. Can’t believe how much those work the glutes, hammies, back AND abs. Those things are quickly becoming one of my favorite movements. TGUs still win. I’m rambling… On the walk walk EMOM I did 2 reps each minute for the first five and 1 rep on the last five rounds. The shoulders were getting questionably fatigued.

Tuesday | Woke up with some seriously sore hammies and glutes, which persisted through Wednesday morning…

nailed it broad city
Broad City: my new favorite. Strong glutes & hammies make you the bitch in the suit. Mmm hmm

I really wanted to get up to the 140’s on the power cleans, but I felt a little beat up so just went with it. Worked up to 125# on the push press which I was happy with. And I was able to do the GHRs with my hands behind my head, not at my chest which is progress. The body rows felt fine on the shoulder. I was able to do the first set of 10 unbroken.

Wednesday | Looked (and felt) recovery-ish, which was delightful.

Thursday | Rest day – Mmm hmm.
