I received a great deal of support and suggestions based upon my bum knee. I think that it was Jason who brought up the virtues of swimming as an excellent low impact exercise option. At least a couple others have chimed in to validate that notion.
I too have heard this but I must tell you that water and I do not mix! As a child my parents sent me to the YMCA for swimming lessons for three years and I stayed “a minnow” for all of that time. Around the water my nick name is Rock! I also had a bad experience once at the ocean. I fell asleep on the beach and awoke to kind hearted people throwing water on me while the Coast Guard was trying to tow me back into the surf!
Add to all of this the visual cruelty you would subject any pool occupants to as I strut up to the pool in my brand new baby blue Speedo! For the sake of humanity please don’t suggest such a thing again. Relegate me to the closed and dreary confines of my garage to lift dumbbells or skip rope- better the foundation suffer than the eyes of the beholder!
Fat Man Joke of the Day, (daily double):
I don’t want to say I’m fat but when I sit around the house I really do!
Dietary Intake today:
4:00 – GoLean Cereal with blue berries and strawberries
7:15 – Two slices of reduced sodium deli turkey breast
10:30 – Green grapes
1:00 – As I had mentioned before I was finally getting tired of the plain chicken beast option for lunch. As always I received great feedback on this site and took a suggestion from Dave and added a bit of my own twist to it. I used the same cooked chicken breast but diced it up and added some low fat mayonnaise and some diced up pickles to the mix. I ate that as is and it was delicious! I should be good for lunch for a few more weeks now.
3:30 – Almonds
6:30 – For dinner I experimented a bit and it turned out pretty well. I had some leftover cooked chicken breast which I shredded up a bit. I then added that with four colors of steamed peppers and a little past sauce. I served that over some whole grain elbow pasta and once again it was great. Best of it was quick and easy- see photo below:
I want to thank all of you for checking in on me. I hope that all is well with all of you and look forward to any comments or input that you have for me- as long as it doesn’t involve swimming! 🙂
