Day 38. Aloha!

Dropped off my wife to the airport and she’s on her way with a girlfriend to the beautiful island of … Hawaii. You’re suppose to read that in your best Price Is Right prize announcer voice. Not a long vacation, but I will miss her. She is my best friend and who wouldn’t miss their best friend? Life lesson #38 – Don’t hesitate to tell the world you miss your wife.

Weight. At 7:15am, I weighed 172. At 11:50am, I weighted 169.5.

Money Saving and Weight Loss Tip! Buy a footlong sandwich. Eat 6″ now. Eat 6″ later. You get to enjoy two meals and you only paid one price.

Yahoo! had an article today regarding a new daily protein requirement using your ideal weight.

Use this formula from Caroline Apovian, MD, to determine the minimum amount of protein you should eat daily to offset muscle loss–and protect your metabolism–while you lose weight.

 Estimate your ideal weight. “If you’re a woman, start with 100 pounds for the first 5 feet in height, and add 5 pounds for every extra inch,” says Dr. Apovian. “For men, it’s 106 pounds for 5 feet in height, plus 6 pounds for every additional inch. However, if your ideal weight is less than 120 pounds, don’t eat less than 82 g of protein daily.”

STEP 2 Ideal Weight (in lb) ÷ 2.2 = Ideal Weight (in kg)

STEP 3 Ideal Weight (in kg) × 1.5 = Daily Protein Goal (in g)

Based on this formula, I should be at 105 grams of protein per day. Today I was at 139 grams. I reviewed the last 7 days … I am averaging 108 grams per day. Pretty interesting … coincidence, I think not! Take some time to figure yours out!

Today’s Activities

  • 11:20am – Ramp runs and sprint home. This is my first run after Saturday night’s half-marathon. After that race, I was actually questioning whether I wanted to even attempt another half, let alone a full. Today was my effort to get my joy of running back. Here’s a video of today’s route. Herbalife Run
