日本語 94日のCarbingの低い楽しみ

The big goal for today, come heck or high water, is to exercise. I will do it! Rah! Anyone seen my exercise shoes? :-)

PS - I had trouble posting comments on a few of the LC menu blogs yesterday. Anybody else encounter that glitch?

Update: I did a 45 minute, 45 second workout on the treadmill. My speed level was 3. The incline was 1.5. I walked a total of 2.27 miles - not counting my warm up walk (5 minutes, to get to the gym) and my cool down walk (5 minutes, to get back home).

I tried to make it a "full body workout" by pumping my arms while walking. Man I must have looked goofy on that thing! :-)

9:45 am

+ a cup of instant coffee with a few ounces of organic low fat milk and a pinch of pure stevia

10:45 am

+ The Wowee Zowee Meal Replacement Shake - 4 oz of organic heavy cream, 4 oz of purified water, 2 scoops of natural vanilla whey protein powder, 2 tbs of organic flax meal, 1 scoop of Amazing Grass Chocolate Green SuperFood, a pinch of pure stevia, and 1/4 tsp of Also Salt)

* Note: I've stopped taking my supplements with my protein shake. I'm concerned that the phytic acid (an "anti-nutrient") in flax my impede nutrient absorption - when taken at the same time as nutritional supplements.

1:45 pm

+ 2 natural Bratwurst sausages

+ 2 organic Roma tomatoes, topped with sour cream and raw goat's milk cheese

4:45 pm

+ a cup of instant coffee with a few ounces of organic low fat milk and a pinch of pure stevia

6:45 pm

+ a lamb burrito bowl - ground lamb, sauteed with onions and mixed with organic sour cream & spicy chipotle salsa

More to come ... I hope!

wow, you are so analytical with the nutrient absorption worry. Impressed and hope it works out better for you. Good luck with the exercise! You can do it!

Just trying to maximize the benefits of each - the flax and the supplements.

I figure if I'm going to spend the time and money on supplements ... I might as well use them wisely (or as best as I know how)! :)

Thanks for the encouragement! :) Look out treadmill, here I come!

I couldn't post a comment on your blog yesterday. I tried a few times without success.

I just tried again and I can't complete the "word verification" process. :(

I hope you see this comment. Please hang in there. You're doing great dealing with so much stress! :)

I'm really impressed with how well you're managing such a tough time - work-wise and scale-wise.

Thanks Harry ... that miffs me about the blog comments not working, but I have no clue why blogger is being difficult for people. I think Sadekat had a similar problem recently. I just thought I was boring to everyone yesterday. ;)

Sorry to be spamming your comment page. I just changed blogger to not require comment verification on posts made within the last 3 days. I'll just have to be watchful of abuse, but maybe that will fix things for now. Thanks for alerting me!

Harry said...

No worries, Oct!

I just didn't want you to think that we didn't care about what was going on in your life!

We do! :)
