Ship’s Log–August 12th


I woke up sore as anything this morning and decided to postpone the planned “recovery run” for fear that it might actually do more harm than good. By lunchtime the soreness had subsided significantly, and so I decided to go ahead with the evening MMA class and my plan to have two mini meals on either side in place of an afternoon of snacking and a full dinner post-class.

Class was good. The squats didn’t hurt as badly as I had expected. I may have misjudged how small a meal would satisfy me afterwards, since I did some snacking after my bowl of chili and crackers. Next time I’ll include a salad with my soup to make sure I feel full.


  • Smoothie: banana, strawberries, frozen blueberries, romaine, red leaf lettuce, kale, flax and chia seeds, Vega Sport Performance Protein, and water
  • Cinnamon raisin mochi from Grainaissance with Earth Balance spread and maple syrup
  • Coffee with stevia

Morning Snack:

  • Tempeh avocado wrap from Dean’s Natural Market with sriracha
  • 1/2 navel orange
  • Small dish of kettle corn

  • Coffee with cardamom, vanilla stevia, and unsweetened soy milk
  • Piece of dark chocolate

Afternoon Mini-meal:

  • Salad: red leaf lettuce, romaine, kale blueberries and walnuts topped with tangerine balsamic
