20/09/2009 – Eid mubarak

In Ramadan Logs on September 20, 2009 by Suhaila

Sleep:
6 hours total (6 hours at night, 0 hours during the day)

Workout:
Rest day

It’s Eid! I stayed home so I didn’t do many Eid-like things, but it’s Eid nonetheless. 🙂 I hope everyone had a great day and a beneficial Ramadan, and best wishes for the year to come inshaAllah.

I tried to do a pull-up today around 11am and got slightly less than eyes-to-bar. I tried to do another one around 9pm and the bar fell on my head. Tip of the day: if you have a doorway pull-up bar that rests on the trim at the top of the door, make sure it’s actually resting on the trim before you put your weight on it! Mine was about halfway off, but when I tugged at it to check if it was stable, it didn’t move, so I assumed it was all the way on. Putting my whole bodyweight on it didn’t have the same result. I have a bump on my head now. But I put it right back up and tried my pull-up anyway, and got the top of my head up to the bar. It seems that my first pull-up of the day is always the strongest one, no matter how long I wait in between attempts. (By the way, my head is fine. I’m not dizzy and don’t have a headache. It’s just a small dime-sized bump, nothing to worry about inshaAllah).

Breakfast:

  • Cheat: 2 egg dosais with parappu (better known as daal but parappu is slightly different) and coconut chutney
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 tsp fish oil + multivitamin

Lunch:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • A salad with grilled salmon, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, mushroom, and cheese
  • 2 tsp fish oil + multivitamin

Dinner:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • Salmon and rice with 2 cups spinach
  • Yogurt with strawberries
  • 2 tsp fish oil + multivitamin

  1. I am glad you are OK after the pull-up bar incident. I did similar once, but it was not bad since the doorway frame top was so short.

    My breakfast was zone/paleo I think
    2 boiled eggs with hot sauce
    brie cheese
    coffee with milk

    Then we drove 3 hours to another state.

    I could have cheated more with lunch, but I didnt because I wanted to save it for dinner but dinner ended up being a place we had to stop on the highway (captain D’s fried fish haha)

    it took a long time to get home because it started to severe rain

    and no WOD or fish oil as I went to sleep
