Day 7
For 1 point, are you Zoning? 
If not, then try this simple method:
If you choose to “guesstimate” you can simply divide your plate at every meal into three equal sections.
• On 1⁄3 of the plate put some low-fat protein that is no bigger or thicker than the palm of your hand.
• Then fill the other 2⁄3 of the plate with colorful carbohydrates (vegetables and little fruit).
• Finally add a dash (that’s a small amount) of fat that is low in omega-6 and saturated fats such as olive oil or avocado.

  2. I guesstimate zone and don't actually weight and count all my foods. I did some before and had really great success. Not saying I'm a pro, but I do know what's right and wrong when it comes to food portions.

    Gotta get ready - off to WOD...

  8. I usually weigh and measure when I prep my meals. Sometimes I don't but I eat what I can if not I save it for later. I think my stomach has gotten used to the amount I need to eat in a meal.

  9. Not a fan of Zone, I keep it Strict and Simple. I tried the zone last challenge and was not a fan of it. I know it's an easy system but I was always unsure if I had the calculations right.

    Today WOD

    3 mile run, 40 knees to chest ab raises, and some strict dumbell presses.

  11. I'm not zoning on purpose....if I do it's by guessing only. I'm trying to stay strict paleo. I plan on working out later but that run yesterday has me walking funny and I have a 12 hr workday too. :(

  19. Last challenge I didn't zone but this one I am. It's a lot easier then I thought! And I find that I eat better when I zone. I used to just eat eggs and bacon in the morning thinking that would suffice.
    No WOD for me today. I got super sick last night and have barely been able to eat today. Hoping tomorrow will be a different story.

  25. I'm not zoning. Paleo itself is a challenge for me. Baby steps... However, I do already try to make my ratio on my plate as described above. Didn't make it to the workout today. Had to work all day then straight to my daughter's track meet this evening.

  26. I'm not zoning...keeping it as simple as possible.

    Today's WOD- 1 mile warm up run, followed by 12 fartleks (1 min fast/30 sec recovery jog), ended with short cool down run. After yesterday's workout and today's run, my legs feel like jello. Can't wait to wake up and get another WOD in tomorrow!

  32. I don't zone regularly. I guesstimate and try to keep my portions smaller. I am also trying to practice eating slower. I try to eat and give my body plenty of time to know it's full.
    I was not able to come to the gym today but I did workout this morning with a 3 1/2 mile row on a kayak on ray hubard.
