Day 47- Winter weather

Friday, February 12, 2016      12 comments

The snow is really coming down this evening, and the temperature is dropping significantly. I am not going to complain though, after last Winter this is nothing major. We do have wind chill warnings for tomorrow, so Cooper will not be getting ... Read more

Day 46- going for distance

Thursday, February 11, 2016      12 comments

A little high on the protein today, but still within range to be 100% compliant. Went to the gym with my brother, Jeremy, this morning. Woke up before my alarm. It was early enough that Cooper did not get out of bed with me and "assist" m... Read more

Day 45- Compliant... taking it a little easier today

Wednesday, February 10, 2016      10 comments

It snowed last night and got colder, so Cooper isn't as interested in going for long rambles when I take him out for his walks, which means that I am actually taking it a little bit easier today. (notice I didn't say taking it easy... just easi... Read more

Day 44- Compliant... new PR

Tuesday, February 09, 2016      14 comments

Food is pretty much spot on once again. Went to the gym this morning with my brother. I decided to really go for the speed today, and ended up with 8.09 miles in 65 minutes, at incline. I was huffing and puffing, and sweating like crazy! ... Read more

Day 43- Compliant... practicing resistance

Monday, February 08, 2016      13 comments

Food is pretty much perfect again. I think I am really getting the hang of this food thing. By the time 100 days rolls around it should pretty much be automatic. That said, I got practice today in resisting the food pushers. Both at lunch an... Read more

Day 42- Compliant... and new PR

Sunday, February 07, 2016      14 comments

Today was a gym workout day with my brother, Jeremy. Normally we hop on treadmills next to each other and go for 65 minutes (60 minutes of workout and a 5 minute cool down). I thought I was pushing myself harder with him beside me, but I blew ... Read more

Day 41- Compliant

Saturday, February 06, 2016      14 comments

I do 30 minutes of yoga when I first get up in the morning. It isn't pretty or graceful by any means, but it gets me moving in the morning, and I feel more centered during the day if I do it. It means getting up 30 minutes earlier, which can b... Read more

Day 40- Compliant

Friday, February 05, 2016      14 comments

Pretty much perfect on the food plan today. I tend to eat similar things on a daily basis, so I know what the macronutrient proportions are going to look like when I plan my day's menu in the morning. I eat a low carb/high fat diet, which is s... Read more

Day 39- I think I will aim for 100

Thursday, February 04, 2016      11 comments

100 days that is... of 100% compliance with my nutrition plan. So far I have missed the target on four days, so my letter grade would still be pretty good. That is a little over two more months of sticking like glue to my nutrition plan on a d... Read more

Day 38- Active Recovery

Wednesday, February 03, 2016      11 comments

The forecast this morning was for rain, but it cleared up by 10am, so guess who wanted to walk? Yep, you guessed it... the Cooper dog! I walked him a little over 5 miles this morning, and a mile this afternoon, and he gets a walk after dinner ... Read more

Day 37- 100% compliant

Tuesday, February 02, 2016      18 comments

I like feeling safe enough to drive the car with the new tires... though all the snow has pretty much melted anyways, so it would probably be okay with the old tires right now. We are expecting more snow tomorrow night though. So most mornings... Read more

Day 36- Back on track

Monday, February 01, 2016      17 comments

It was a minor detour off of 100% compliance with my nutrition plan. I got right back on track today. It was a decent day weather wise, and Cooper wanted to walk, so I indulged him. We have walked over 10 miles so far, and he gets one more w... Read more

Day 35- Perhaps I spoke too soon

Sunday, January 31, 2016      11 comments

Or maybe my inner rebel had a fit when I said in yesterday's blog that being compliant with my nutrition plan was becoming a habit... because today I took a little detour down cheesecake lane. I doubt it will do any damage in the long run, but ... Read more

Day 34- It is becoming a habit to be compliant

Saturday, January 30, 2016      12 comments

Went out to my parents' house for lunch today. They have gotten used to my dietary quirks, and enjoy what I cook for them. I always add an item or two for them, that I just don't put on my plate. Today was sauteed veggies with a garnish of cr... Read more

Day 33- Compliant

Friday, January 29, 2016      12 comments

I failed to meet the challenge of planning my meals the night before for the last two days. It just doesn't work for me. Planning in the morning as I plan out my day works much better. I have a routine that I stick to most of the time, but th... Read more
