feeling pretty good


Thursday, January 10, 2013

I went for a little walk through the knee deep snow last night. It was cold and I could hear the coyotes howling across the hills to the north west. it felt good to be out, even when I tripped and fell face first into the snow bank. I started thinking about diet again.

I've been tracking my food closely. Going so far as to set some strange goals for myself. With my calorie intake down, I've dropped a bit of weight. I've been trying to eat more protein and less carbs. I've had no issues keeping the fat down for the most part.

So, today, I started with 2 hard boiled, brown, farm eggs for breakfast. I've been snacking on rosted almonds and beef jerky this morning. Just little bits at a time. 1/4cup almonds or 10g of jerky. I had a pork loin chop for lunch, cause I was running around..

So far, i've got 57g protein, 34g fat, 8g carbs and 558cal. Not bad.

I feel pretty good, this little tire I keep on me is bringing me down though. :p

  Thanks Linda.

I have a thought about the coyotes being close to people, do you guys have lots of jack rabbits running around on your side of the river? I find they tend to be close to people and that draws predators like coyotes. I've got an old wood & sinew bear paw snowshoes. The tennis racquet ones always gice me trouble. Haha.

    Walking through deep snow is great exercise, though I might prefer using snowshoes myself :P I live in the city, so our snow gets cleared away, but the parks still have lots. My Mom lives overlooking the river and has a family of coyotes living below her on the hill. They never make any noise there though. But their tracks go all over the neighbourhood. Odd they stay near people when the other side of the river isn't as developed. They can get to the other side as parts of the river are frozen across.
Not a bad start to your day calorie wise. No fruits or veggies though. Want to keep from getting sick with all those illnesses going around, you need to get your vitamins in and especially the big C.
Its -30 here today with the strong winds, so its suit up Parka time, but it never stops me from getting out and walking.
Keep up the great work!!
