all the sweat, none of the nutrition

Workouts are back on track.

The gym is happening. I do the machines and focus on arms, back, and some legwork. I’m walking at least 1.2 miles a day with the dog and have gotten in a couple of decent runs recently as well, including a 4-miler on Saturday. Last but not least, The Trekster and I continue to bond and did a 15-mile ride just yesterday. I’m loving that bike.

What needs to happen now is a record of my food intake on this blog, or at least somewhere. I don’t mind tracking my exercise here or on Fitocracy or Runkeeper because I’m actually succeeding at that. But tracking my food is a different story. I know I need to track my failures and shortcomings as well as my successes. I’m stacking the deck or not showing the full picture or something. I should have been a lawyer. Full disclosure must happen. Like the fact that I ate 5 chocolate chip cookies for supper last night. Or the ice cream I scarfed just before the 5 chocolate chip cookies. Or a couple of days ago when I forgot to eat lunch and then grabbed Sonic on the way home because, convenient and yummy and chemicals be damned.

Ok, full disclosure kind of sucks.

This has been a fitness update.

So, August 1. Like most other days, although made much nicer by lunch at a favorite hole in the wall joint with a friend who gets me. I talked his ear off and he listened and shared and we ate and laughed. Good stuff, friends like that.

I booked a hotel for next weekend. The Accountant and I are going away, although not very far, for a kid-free, adult weekend. I have no idea what we’ll do but I’ll check out what’s going on around town and we’ll figure something out I’m sure.

I’m a quarter of the way done with It Starts With Food. So far so good. Although, hello, I should be dead by now. I eat like crap. Favorite gems from the book so far…”There is no food Switzerland – every single thing you put in your mouth is either making you more healthy or less healthy”….”You cannot out-exercise poor food choices and the resulting hormonal disruption”…”Genetics loads the gun, but environment pulls the trigger”…

I skipped the gym last night, just wasn’t feelin’ it. A run tonight? That is the plan stan.
