Leon, WTF did you eat yesterday? Day 4

As yesterday, when I wasn't drinking coffee, I was drinking iced tea.  Very light eating day yesterday, as I was pretty stuffed from Tuesday's feasting.  I didn't eat anything until about 630pm.  My mood was pretty awful all day and the little bit of chocolate helped not at all.

Food:
32 ounces of coffee (french roast)
4 Tbl grass-fed half-n-half
full rack of baby-back ribs (14 bones' worth)
4 Tbl molasses-based BBQ sauce (if it matters, this is 8g carb/2Tbl)
0.7 ounces 90% cacao dark chocolate (Lindt).

Supplements:
20000 IU D3
3 grams vitamin C
6 grams DHA/EPA fish oil (from the fridge)
1200 mg gelatin
1500 mg collagen
2 tablets of Chrysin Surge
1 tablet of DHEA
0.5 grams magnesium

Leon, WTF did you eat yesterday? Day 2

I spent most of Saturday in the car and then forgot to thaw meat for the crock pot in time to have a lunch ready for yesterday, so I ended up buying lunch from the Kroger deli.  When I did get around to cooking the thawed meat, I had slightly too much for the crock, so I fried up two slices of it as steaks.  Chewy steaks, but not awful.  I didn't eat solid food until about noon, and yesterday was a fairly small day food-wise.  I had meant to eat some of the red bell peppers I bought on sale, but wasn't hungry after the beef.

Food:
32 ounces of coffee (sumatra)
4 Tbl grass-fed half-n-half
12 ounces roast beef (unsure of cut, seemed very lean)
4 ounces Greek olives stuffed with blue cheese
12 ounces bottom round roast, trimmed and fried in
1 Tbl grass-fed butter (Kerrygold)

Supplements:
20000 IU D3
3 grams vitamin C
6 grams DHA/EPA fish oil (from the fridge)
1200 mg gelatin
1500 mg collagen
2 tablets of Chrysin Surge
1 tablet of DHEA
0.5 grams magnesium

Update: Removed cinnamon tablet that I didn't take yesterday.

Leon, WTF did you eat yesterday? Day 1

So yesterday was my weekly carbohydrate re-feed as I continue on The Anabolic Diet.  I still eat in a manner you could safely describe as paleo (or primal, since I don't seem to have issues from small quantities of good dairy foods).  Anyhow, here's everything I ate yesterday:

Food:

1 teaspoon of honey
1 cup of coffee
0.5 cup of orange juice
2 sweet potatoes, hand grated and fried in
1 Tbl of coconut oil
4 fresh eggs, cooked in the sweet potato hash as it finished
14 ounces of vanilla Häagen-Dazs
2 cups uncooked jasmine rice (which I cooked)
1 lb fresh chorizo sausage
0.5 cup hot salsa, Meijer Organics brand
2 cups grass-fed whole milk

Supplements:
20000 IU D3
1 gram cinnamon tablet
3 grams vitamin C
6 grams DHA/EPA fish oil (from the fridge)
1200 mg gelatin
1500 mg collagen
2 tablets of Chrysin Surge (terrestrius tribulus, an aromatase inhibitor)
1 tablet of DHEA

I missed my usual magnesium (0.5 grams) at the end of the day.  The ice cream is a sometimes food, so don't get excited.  Once or twice a month I indulge in ice cream on a high-carb day, and even then I pick the brand with the fewest ingredients.

Notes: TM didn't happen this week, nothing did, really.  I'm at 5 weeks with no back-off and my joints need some rest.  This is the leanest I've been at a weight of 180, but I'm still probably primed for some slimming down as Fall starts in earnest.

Workout log, Texas Method? week 1

Monday (9-30-2013)
squat 135x5 185x3, 225x2, 265 5x5
press 65x5, 95x3, 110 5x5
power clean 135 8x3
chin-up +25 5x5

Wednesday
squat 135x5, 185x3, 215 2x5
bench 95x5, 135x3, 175 3x5
pendlay row 135x5, 155 3x5
weighted hyperextension +25 3x10, superset with plank
plank 3x60s, superset with weighted hypers

Friday
squat 135x5, 185x2, 225x2, 265x2, 305x3
press 65x5, 95x2, 105x2, 120x2, 135 f,f
push press 140x3
power clean 135x5, 155 f,f
dumbbell curl 30 3x8
tricep pushdown (straight bar) 150 3x8
lateral raises 25 3x8

Weight (Friday):
179 lb

Notes: Other than PCs on Monday rather than deads, this is basically a TM week, with a good start and middle and an utter failure at the end.  The 305 squat was supposed to be a 5RM test, and I couldn't do 4, and I could not press 135 past an inch or so above my head.  This makes 4 consistent weeks of full-body workouts in a row.  Going to do one more then take a backoff week, I think.
