Alright, time to work out! I told Mike I would after all!

Figured I would try to get two birds with one stone on this - gonna try to read some chapters while on the elliptical! Just fueled up with some cucumber salad, so here goes nothing!

Exercising your brain AND your buns! Now that's a workout!

Today I did several levels of Lumosity, supposedly to strengthen your brain function. The results showed that I can problem solve quickly and efficiently, but have the memory of a goldfish, apparently... Hmmm. Seems as though I would be able to fix my car, just not remember where I left it. Lol

1. Take meds 2x day
yes, yes
2. Log everything
yes, yes
3. Plan meals day before so I have a plan ready to go when I wake up
no, yes (but it changed throughout the day)

I'm thinking that I should revise my goal #3 to be that I will plan my breakfast the night before, and work on lunch/dinner in the morning. It seems that's what I must be used to doing.

I skipped lunch today because I had a calorie and carb heavy dinner...pork country ribs in the crock pot with a little bbq sauce, home made au gratin potatoes, and a roll. With skipping lunch I am able to stay close to target on my calories and right on target with my carbs. This is the first time I've ever made home made au gratin potatoes before. A little time consuming, but the results were so worth it. It's amazing how eating clean tastes so much better than a box! Best cheesy potatoes I ever had!

The thread is so busy I'm having a hard time keeping up with everyone's posts. I will try to do better tomorrow.

Another great day, diet-wise. Down 3 pounds since the first of the year. This is the first time since last summer that I feel confident that I will get back down to my original goal weight and hopefully, fairly soon.

I didn't get to do cardio because I went to the gym and lifted. I'll get it in though.

Awesome job. There no rule that says you have to keep up.

Default Wed.

  • Cholesterol < 250 mg/day: 250, 188, 196
  • Lift weights @ gym (> 30 mins): (scheduled for Thurs.)
  • & Exercise > 30 mins x 2: Y(1), Y(2)

So far, so good this week. Even keeping the protein over 90 gs. I suspect it won't last through the weekend, though.

Krystal: I'm not so good at Math, but I'm good at Arithmetic. I just made up those thesis titles, and I'm not sure the second one makes any sense. But, it does make me wonder how to export log data for detailed analysis. Hum...
