Hey Shari -- I'm just starting with the zone (crossfit turned me on to it) and this "day in the zone" menu is super helpful. Thanks.

That's for breaking it down. I am trying to eat cleaner. Maybe not "zone" perfect but at least cleaner then I do now. I was happy to read you were going to do this. I will be checking it daily to see what helps you to look so amazing! Thanks Shari!

nic,
No problem....any way I can help just let me know...ask questions and I'll be glad to help. Also I have awesome handouts on recipes if you want....You'll do great in the Zone. Commit and stick to it and you will benefit tremendously!!!

ocrunnergirl,
Awww....thanks for the kudos. I will keep posting in the evenings....so check back. Eating "clean" is great - but if you want real results you must weigh and measure and eat meat and veggies, some fruit, little starch no sugar....good luck. If I can help let me know.

Shari -- again many thanks. Following your day in the zone is a lot easier than the books. Also, my name is somewhat confusing -- I'm a girl -- and seeing you and the other Santa Cruz crossfit girls looking so great and being so strong is awesome inspiration. I too will be checking in to follow your zone regimen!

Nic -
Where ya from ? And how did you happen across my site ? If there's any help I can give ya let me know...the books can be confusing...Take care

From DC. I sometimes train with Tom Bose's crossfit crew here but for the most part fit x-fit around martial arts training. A link to your site was posted in the x-fit comments sections (couple of months ago maybe?) Sorry -- I assumed you'd authorized it. Hope it's ok that I posted here?

If I'm training by myself I often end up using either one of your wods or one of the santa cruz wods. I'd like to drop 12lbs and it seems as though the zone would be a good way to do it? Your posting broke it down really easily. I figured I'd follow along with what you're doing and see if I get good results.

Hey Nic,
Of course it's okay for you to post here. I forgot that somebody posted my blog on the xfit comments page a while back.... Glad to hear that you do our HQ WOD, or one of mine...that's incredible!!! Be my guest at following along with my Zone days or again check out the CrossFit journals for the break down of how the diet works. emai me at sharibaby2@netzero.com if you have any specific questions that I can answer for you. Take care and good luck girl!!!
