I posted this below by accident. Totally awesome new space! It really is amazing. So grateful to have the opportunity to do the cert in our home town. Mike was fabulous. He's usually the quiet guy in the gym. Loved seeing you in your element, teaching with passion Mike. It's also an eye opener to see how much we benefit from CONSTANT high elevation training. We really are lucky/blessed/whatever you call it, to be here. Lisa - You are this gym. I know others have a great effect and I'm not discounting that. But this is you. I think we all understand what a force of nature you are! e

Steve, I wasn't there for that workout, but you have it, that subtle, irreplaceable "it" that makes you a phenomenal coach. You pay attention. You say what needs to be said. You are THERE. Rock. On.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I have to keep saying it - I'm not doing this perfectly. My measurements are done with my eyeballs. I eat a LOT of nuts during the day, probably way more than prescribed. I probably have some sugar in the sauces I use for my proteins. I've just recently - as in three days ago - decided to stop drinking my nightly one or two beers. But the changes in my body and attitude are immediate and noticeable. I've lost weight - for sure. I feel good - proud to have crossed the line over the daily rice and secret starches. Stunned that the person eating good proteins and vegetables and nuts is, well, ME. I am more and more curious to witness my body changes over the next months as I continue this. It's exhilarating to say the least. Maybe soon I'll actually see some muscle tone in my abs? I've always believed it's there.. is it?

Cullen, thank you for making it come so alive for those of us who were not there. amazing. e
I'm confused. I bought "The Soy Zone" by Barry Sears. The book tells me that all of the soy based fake meats that have more protein than carbs are GOOD zone foods. I ran to New Frontiers and bought the soy based foods that have like.. at least double the protein as the carbs. I started eating them (again - I used to live on the stuff but w/o the combination of veggies and fats). I was euphoric to eat something other than fish. Now, I just read Rob Wolff's blog (man that guy is an ANGRY dude, is he not?), and especially the story of Laura DeMarco ( Her story is the journey from veggie zoner to paleo - meat zoner. The message is that the soy foods I'm eating are NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Reality. I've only been doing this (my version of zone imperfect) for a little over two weeks. I absolutely feel better about myself for taking out ALL of those bad carbs (except beer, so I can't say all). I feel better about myself for the changes I have made. I can actually see the body fat melting away! I feel good about it. How is it possible to feel so good about something in one minute, and in the next, set myself up to feel like I'm not doing ENOUGH? This is the stuff of all of life. Is it good enough? Is is more important to get the perfect result or to enjoy how the process is going? Is is possible to do both? I don't have the answers. e

TWO WEEKS! It's been two weeks since I starting trying to do zone. I say try because I have not and probably will not do it perfectly - ever. But. After going through those extreme and horrible emotions during the first week, I calmed down. It's all OK.. I can do this. For me, "this" is trying to eat the combo of three of the zone - protein, carbs and fats. I've eaten a ton of fish and am already sick of fish. I'm trying to pack in the veggies. I'm eating nuts. I believe I've already lost weight. I started losing weight by taking out all of those other carbs, but I slipped into a pair of jeans I haven't worn in two years. My biggest problem: I am a vegetarian (eat fish) and am not a cook. I need easy and fast. I need basically pre-prepared. I bought The Soy Zone and am trying to find foods that I can have ready. Last night was my CHEAT NIGHT! After dinner at a friends, I had two chocolate covered strawberries, then a whole bunch of chocolate chip cookie dough! SCRUMPTIOUS! And it's cool. This morning I'm right back on. I can do this. :) e

Lisa, I posted my food log as well and will do so every week. I'm not measuring the way you are.. yet. And I don't know the blocks. But after only one week I am already feeling that it's OK to do this. Whatever "this" is.. if it's REAL Zone or Eileen Zone, it's the closest I've come yet! Thanks for being an inspiration!

FOOD LOG TOTALLY and COMPLETELY not even CLOSE to perfect. Maybe not even Zone? But hell, I cut out all the rice and extra credit crap I still let myself eat, so it feels like a massive change. I need to have way more veggies on hand. Getting the protein is not hard, but getting the veggies is realy hard. ____________________________________________________________ Sun Tea w/stevia and milk Smoothie 2cups coffee w creamer 1 half avocado Small handful nuts 3 broccoli florets Fabis for dinner - fish veggies n 2 big crackers w cream cheese 2 beers Mon Smoothie Nuts Tofu w broccoli n cauliflower Pumpkin seeds lots of them Coffee w creamer 6 oz salmon, spinach soup, broccoli florets Tues Smoothie Broccoli n a little cheese (sm portion) Half lara bar Tofu n veggies 2 Lara bars Dinner?

End of Week 1 Call it Zone Imperfect! Definitely imperfect! Day 2 I was in a restaurant at the Grand Canyon, day 4 and 5 glued to clients the whole day without my snacks pre-measured. Got REALLY hungry rather than eating 5 times a day. So imperfect to say the least, it was. The Difference: TRYING makes a difference. Taking out all of those bad carbs xcept beer already feels different. Learning makes a difference. So I feel different in a better way, regardless of how perfect or imperfect this week was. E

I'm starting to feel a little bit better. A few days on controlled eating makes it doable. Like I said, I'm not a zone poster child. Yet. I have taken ALL crap out. No more little dollops of mac and cheese on my salad at new frontiers. Absolutely no gluten free crackers in the house (my last carb crutch). The two things I cannot yet give up: tea with stevia and milk. 1 or 2 beers. I know I can fit those beers into the zone if I plan right. I'm not quite there yet. e

Emotional. Angry. Pissed. Angry. Emotional. I don't want to measure my fucking food. I don't want to NOT grab a handful of something I know is healthy and is not sugar or carbs. I want to feel free. So much of my life is based on providing for others. I want THIS part to be FREE! This is hard. Emotionally hard. Maybe it will get easier, but right now I can honestly say I am NOT following it to the letter. I am close and will post a food log. I'm questioning why I am doing this to myself - pure vanity? Yes. It is. I want to get to that minimum body fat goal at least once in my life. Will it change anything else about my life? I don't know but it's vanity motivated. I question it. I wonder. I won't quit or walk away, but it's going to take a little before I feel good about this. Maybe it will take a lot.
