Day 65

My poor fiance is sick. We think it is food poisoning. I didn't weigh-in today. I feel pretty bloated. I will tomorrow though.

I have a lot of errands to run today but my plan is to be super-productive and do something to whip my body into shape. I wanna do at least 2 workouts. I think I am going to take some body shots after this period and post them so we can see if there are any changes in the next month.

BF: Cheerios (145) with 2 oz. fresh blueberries (30), Post-workout snack: 1 cup skim milk (90), Lunch: Zone bar (190), Snack: few grapes while cooking dinner (40?), Dinner: homemade chicken and dumpling soup, 1 bowl (350?), 2 small/medium slices of rye bread (200?) with Smart Balance spread (50), Snack: mini pig-out on blueberries and strawberries (120) about 1245 if I am estimating correctly.

Workout #1: I just completed 3.5 miles outdoors! I know this isn't much to the runners out there but I haven't ran regularly in ages. Well, my complex is 0.7 miles around. I walked one lap, ran 3 straight (2.1 miles! in exactly 21 minutes), then walked a lap. During that final lap I did 100 walking lunges! I feel great. (My knees are pretty sore right now, especially the right one...I hope this pain is very temporary).

Workout #2: The goal was to see if I could do 100 push-ups in 10 minutes. I tried this once before a few months ago. The previous time I managed to do 99, lol, of which only 20 or so were "real" and the rest were on my knees. On this attempt I did 40 real ones in 3:15! Then I just didn't have the power to do real ones anymore. Oddly enough I did 99 again, lol. My whole upper body was one big cramp. It was an awesome workout. Hopefully on my next attempt I will do 100 and over 50 will be real ones.


  1. Thanks for the advice! =) I hope it's just water.

  2. OMG,I've had food poisoning before,it is hell on earth!!!Lots of fluids and lots of sleep.If gets really bad he should go to the hosp for an IV fluids.I hope everything goes ok.

  3. Good for you! I am trying to talk myself into turning my usual 3 mile run into 4 tonight... we'll see!

  4. wow awesome job with the workout! you rock. Thanks for the advice too!

  5. I'm so sorry to hear about your fiance. I hope he gets better. I think you are right about my carbs rasing my insulin level and then crashing! You give the best advice. Thanks!

  6. Way to go! That's AWESOME! And don't down your distance.. There are days that running a mile kills me.
