Day 42. Remember, it’s free!

Looks like whatever I eat these days, I can always get back into my new average. After a week of little to no fruits and vegetables, an entire pizza, and a couple of drumsticks (not the musical kinds) and throw out that post race weight of 168.5, I’m right back at where I started for.

Weight 171

Why is that? How can someone eat whatever foods they like to eat and eat 3-5, sometimes 6x’s per day and still remain the same weight. There’s article after article if you Google it, but in the spirit of keeping things simple, a food journal has to be the most useful accountability tool. I use MyFitnessPal.

I’m sure there’s others that do just the same, but this one has all the things I need. A food UPC scanner for ease of entry. You can remember your prior meals and create your own meals for future entries. And oh, it’s free. Life lesson #42 – there are no excuses when it’s free!

Food and promising exercise

Today’s Activities:

  • Within 45 minutes of waking up, attempted some pushups. Old school pushups. Drop down and give me … whatever! Keep in mind that I was only able to do 3 just about a week ago before the left shoulder pain kicked in. Today, drumroll please, 21 perfect pushups. Almost time to dust off that P90 disc!
  • Church service. We had a new volunteer today. Welcome Nick!
