Tuesday Dec 7

I had a crapload of deadlines to meet at work ... and a lab appointment with my newborn. And .. the lab appointment was made, then a mad rush to work. I got everything done, but I was a space cadet. I went for a run to clear my head. Seems to have worked.

The other reason I went for a run was that my left shoulder is a little under the weather. Had to sleep on it for a good chunk of the night while cuddling with my boy. Sore, but not really worth it to mess up in the gym. And I need to replace my heater.

I got my workout in, a 6km run, under 30 minutes, I think. My iPod died on my about 3/4 of the way through the run. Meh, whatever. I had a good chance to think about how blessed I am. I also tried out a few different strides on a really flat route. Nice.

I hate running in the cold, blowing snow ... but sometimes ya just got to do it.

Ate this today:

Smoothie ; just a good way to start the day. OJ and frozen berries.

Breakfast: ugh, hate to admit it ... belt from Tim Hortons. Squished for time, man.

Lunch: carrots and hummus at work. The salad had gone bad .. been there a week, without me. GJ to drink. Water, too.

Dinner: pasta with a can of tuna in it. My kids got grossed out, but I thought it was yummy. Salad, too.

After workout snack: OJ and some almonds.

So far, this is going well. Seeing some decent results - nothing perfect, but then again, I haen't been hard core on the diet, so what do I expect? I'm thinking I got for a hard Friday at a local gym ... get a good run done, a good lifting session ... then check weight. Might happen ... and monkeys might fly out of my butt.... ;)


  1. What weight class are you thinking of competing in?

  2. Don't keep monkey's up your butt, it could get ugly. :p

  3. Jose: 96 kilos... which is 211 lbs

    Boris: man, that is sage advice ... but a little late, my friend... and it was ugly.
