It’s snowing here, but not so much that I couldn’t get to the gym, and on the treadmill.
I did 20 minutes – 10 minutes at a zero degree incline, then I gradually upped it to 2.5 degree during the second half – I want to begin to maximize the efficiency of this 20 minutes and am shooting for a cardio heart rate of about 140 – which is where I ended up at the end of this.
I’m easing in to this as much as possible – the advice at Mind and Muscle I got I thought was very helpful – don’t hurt yourself.
I haven’t bothered them since I started this – I think it’s proper I earn some credibility before I bother them again – I’m sure they see scads of folks who are good at making resolutions that are never followed through.
I’m thinking that I got to put in some sustained effort first, then bug them.
It started with some cream cheese at the ‘continental breakfast’ put out for the day 2 meeting. Lunch was a chicken breast with some cheese and tomato. In the late afternoon I had 3 sausages I had brought from home – as well as 2 Atkins bars – I got really hungry.
This late afternoon meal kept my appetite under control in the evening – I only had a small amount of canned tunaand canned crab with mayo – and some wine.
No veggies – which I think is important, but I just wasn’t all that hungry, and the larder is bare since we haven’t gone shopping since we came home from vacation.
The meeting went quite well, but they are very draining – a great mental workout, but you’re burnt afterwards.
Very low energy in the evening – this could also be because I checked my ketones, and it does appear I’ve just crossed the line into ketosis.
The evening weight-in showed a .6 lb gain – not bad, actually, considering I 5.2 lbs. heavier 2 days ago – and another low for body fat – 26%. I’m not putting too much weight to these numbers, but it might prove to be an interesting trend.
I’ll have to keep up with these numbers – they’re fun to watch – and this exercise thing is real uncharted territory for me.
