Check-in and checklists

This week I have been a little down. I go to my friend's funeral tomorrow, which is weird -- on some level I feel like   I'm going to see him there, which of course I won't. I will see a lot of our former colleagues, which I have mixed feelings about. And because of my gym's policy and the fact that I didn't cancel, I'm actually doing my workout tomorrow morning and bringing my funeral clothes to change into.  It's kind of weird but my friend was a fit guy, so it seems appropriate. It's just going to be a strange day.

I have to get my head back in the game because I have a lot of work to do. I'm getting toward the end of my term and I have a lot of grading to do.  I am hoping to get caught up a little over the weekend.

Thursday:
  • Average 300 minutes of exercise, with at least 30 minutes per day: 45-minute Spin class, plus I got there early and got some bonus Spinning in, 55 minutes total. Also did 12 squats, 12 bench press, and 12 biceps curls (some weight training better than none?)
  • Log all food in Lose It! and stay in the "green zone": Was 86 calories over, but because of all the exercise calorie credit, the green zone was too high. Went out to eat for dinner and overdid it -- enjoyed it at the time but I was too full hours later when I went to bed -- no fun.
  • Take my supplements: Yes
  • Drink at least 90 ounces of liquids today: Lots of water, way over the goal.
  • Get at least 35 grams of fiber: Lots of fiber. Just too many calories too.

Thursday
  • Average 300 minutes of exercise, with at least 30 minutes per day: Took today off formal exercise, but did some serious housework -- deep-scrubbing my stand-up stall shower is hard work.  Was all dressed to run but I just couldn't go -- my feet hurt and I was tired. I didn't get good sleep last night.
  • Log all food in Lose It! and stay in the "green zone": A little over, but since I didn't get any exercise calorie credit, being over in Lose It still puts me within my personal goal.
  • Take my supplements: Am going to do it as soon as I finish this post.
  • Drink at least 90 ounces of liquids today: I need a big glass of water after this post too.
  • Get at least 35 grams of fiber: 34.

  1. Thought of you this afternoon with your funeral. How did things go?

    1. It was a nice service. It made the loss believable and a little more bearable. I got to hear stories about him from people who knew him at different times in his life and it made me remember other things. I visited with some former coworkers, which was nice too.

      Thanks for checking in.
