I guess I run now

or I’m trying to anyway.


Woo Hoo!

Got an extension on my book review until the end of the month. So…a responsible academic would get right back into the book & get to work. But then you already know where this is going next…

So…a bit of lovely blog reading to catch up, a long walk, a lot of house cleaning, & then I’ll get right back into that book…you betcha!

Okay, I’m off to see what ya’ll have been up to this past week!

Update: almost caught up on my blog reading…ya’ll been busy! Busy losing, busy lifting, busy traveling, busy making trouble. House isn’t clean, but it’s tidier than when I arrived & that’s a start. & I even had time to make a quiche, clean/freeze strawberries to make into jam when hubby’s less busy, and begin organizing all the research I gathered last week. Phew! Feels good to accomplish something & feels really good not to have to leave for another long road trip. Nice to be home.

Breakfast: HB egg (90)
Lunch: 1/2 serving leftover pasta (300)
Snack: 8 medium strawberries (30)
Subtotal: 420 calories
Dinner: will be quiche lorraine (1/6 total = 316), salad (96)
Subtotal: 832 (368 remaining)

Snack: 20 pretzels (100) & 4 oz sangria (71)
Exercise: 1 hour & 10 min walk in morning; 25-min walk in evening

Tomorrow is my first fasting day…looking at this list, I can see it will be a day filled with veggies, some berries, and an egg or two to fill me up. A little nervous about dropping down to 600 calories…isn’t that silly? It’s not like it’s forever, only for a day.

It is a great morning! Right there with you doing the lovely blog reading…thinking maybe about a walk later. Need to reach your level of dedication. You keep inspiring me!

Looks like you’re on the right track for the fast day w/a lot of high-volume fruits and veggies. They’ll fill you up w/o a lot of calories. 600 does seem kind of low but if it’s only for 1 day it probably can’t be too bad for you.

As far as my new weightlifting plan, it will be much later than Aug/Sept when I start. If we move by the end of Sept or early October I’m going to be happy. We still haven’t broken ground due to a delay in the approval by the homeowner’s association (don’t ask). Anyway, I’m probably not going to start that program until after the 1st of the year so I can ask for the equipment for Christmas unless I come upon a deal at a garage sale, so feel free to start w/o me. I’m going to continue doing Chalean Extreme and adding cardio and then really focusing on my eating.

Good luck with the fasting! Years ago, I used to fast often (like on a daily basis) through breakfast and lunch as a way to cut back on calories. I had no medical reason to do that. It has just always been easier for me to not eat at all than to start eating and have to stop! 🙄
