Weigh in time

So I was a little nervous going to my nutritionist today.  I really havent noticed a change at all in my clothes, so I'm frustrated.  I actually lost 4.5 lbs and 2.5 body fat, so that makes 10 lbs and 5% body fat in almost 2 months.  He wants to carb cycle me, I dont know about that, I am thinking about sticking to the zone and seeing if I have any weight loss the next two weeks when I go in.  I just feel that grain carbs keep me from loosing the weight. 

Saturday we had fight gone bad at crossfit.  It was tough!
3 rounds. The stations are:
  1. Wall-ball: 20 pound ball, 10 ft target. (Reps)
  2. Sumo deadlift high-pull: 75 pounds (Reps)
  3. Box Jump: 20″ box (Reps)
  4. Push-press: 75 pounds (Reps)
  5. Row: calories (Calories)
1 minute break between rounds.  I did 202 reps/calories, well see how I do next time.

Monday's workout was pretty brutal b/c of the heat.

Back Squat
5-5-5-5-5 (105#)
Met Con
3 Rounds
200 m Run
15 DB Thrusters (15#)
9 Pull Ups
Time: 10:45

Here is one of the paleo/zone friendly meals I made yesterday.  Its just ground chicken, tomatoes, onions, zuchini, and some spices.  It was really good.

Pretty boring week

Nothing of interest has really gone on this week, so I have had no motivation to post :-)  I'm going to try the Zone eating plan, to see if that will help me loose weight quicker.  I am working out twice a day and not really seeing any additional results.  Think I'm eating too many carbs and no fats with my current plan, and thats stopping me from loosing.  I have worked out Mon-Thur at crossfit and we have "fight gone bad" on Saturday and a make up "Helen" on Sunday, so my instructor told me that I was not allowed to work out at all today, not even a casual run, so needless to say I am going crazy with boredom!  Here are the crossfit workouts from Tues  Wed and Thur.
