Ok- so workout animal might be a bit of a stretch but I’m pretty certain that I at least smell like an animal when I’m done! Not just any animal but indeed a nasty old farm animal.
I am pretty happy with myself though because I did the poor man’s stair machine Sunday and the walk/run Monday, Tuesday and today, (Thursday). Today when I did the walk/run I clocked it out and started out with a ½ mile straight before I had my first walking point. That may not seem a lot to a lot of you but for a guy my size I feel it was pretty well. If there are any reports of Richter Scales in the northeast reporting activity around 4 PM today worry not- that was just me running!
As to diet today:
4am- Golean Cereal with Kiwi, (I love that cereal)
6:30 – Grapes and pecans
8:30 – Banana
11:30 – I had a very small piece of baked chicken breast that was left over from dinner last night along with two slices of reduced sodium deli turkey breast as is. I also had some grapes and cashews.
3:30 – A few cashews.
6:30 – Dinner was interesting because as a family we had Chinese food. Normally for me that would have included some type of deep fried chicken dish, pork fried rice and a ton of those chips. As I choose to make better choices I instead ordered steamed chicken, broccoli and brown rice. It was actually really good!
Of special note today I want to congratulate my wife. She is not in need of weight loss like I am but even with her changing just a few dietary habits in conjunction with what I’m doing she has lost about five pounds- without being on a diet!
Well this day is over and I’m still loving this process thanks to all of you. I assure you that results are out there to be had if you choose to make even a few small changes.
For me the question tonight is if I will work out tomorrow and keep the string alive. Hoping so….
