Tofu and soy beans don't seem to bother me at all, but that doesn't surprise me because I grew up eating tofu and fermented soybeans (Natto). All other beans and lentils do it.
I'm not supposed to have soy right now on my restricted diet, which I have been on for nearly 2 weeks. I'm doing it for 3 and I think soy will be the first t come back.

9/16/15

AM: small smoothie and 2 servings oatmeal with walnuts, cherries, molasses

Training:
20 min jumprope. I am jumping on average 2 min straight before stopping for 10-15 sec and got up to 3 min a few times.

Chins
BW+50lbs x 8,8,7,7,7

Ring Dips
BW+50lbs x 8,8,7,7,7

Front Squat
155 x 5,5,5,5,5

Ring Tricep extension
BW x 12,12,12

Toes to bar
8,8,8

Jumprope x 10 min

PWO smoothie: 1/4 block tofu, 1 cup oats, 1 cup mango, 1 cup blueberries, 2 cups kale, 2 cup OJ, tbsp ground flax, water

The additions of jump roping and the added calories are making a big difference. I woke up today and could see the bottom row of abs and much more definition in my shoulders and chest. My weight is fluctuating still between 180-185 but I would feel more comfortable in the 185+ range. Maybe I can live with my current weight and continue to hone because I will be fast. One of the academy requirements is a sub 24 min 3 mile run and I would like to come in running it in around 20. I guess it's time to start the roadwork.

I'll post a progress pic soon

9/24/15

Took the day off yesterday. Got a sea salt soak in and a nap. Recovery is important and can easily be sabotaged by simple things like bad sleep and diet and a lack of mobility work. Just to name a few.

Today's training is a simple upper body push pull workout.

Warmup: jump rope 1:40 on :20 off x 6

Chins + 50lbs x 6,6,6
Ring piked push-up x 6,6,6

Pull-ups x 12,12,10
Ring push-ups + 60lbs x 11,10,10

Ring tricep extension x 12,10,10
Tricep push-ups x 6,5,5

9/25/15

Sleep was horrible last night. Maybe 2.5 hrs total.

Training 11:00-12:00

Trail run - 3 miles with 900' elevation changes. 37:25 not bad considering the minimal running I have done at this point. My best on this trail was 33:15 when I was running it regularly and about 8lbs lighter.
It was very hot out too about 90.

I had 2 17oz cans of coconut water right after and 24 oz water when I got home. My pee was pretty dark so apparently I wasn't hydrated properly either. I'll be more careful about that from here on out.
