Day 3. Ooof

Still the ‘hangover,’ still tired. Not as bad as yesterday, but I had no energy on the bike this morning.

Meal 1: chicken soup, 3 pieces bacon
Meal 2: chicken soup, 1 small sweet potato with cinnamon
Meal 3: I forgot…that’s what happens when I don’t write it the same day. UGH.

AM: 30min Peloton ride. This was at a very easy pace, but just a nice spin. BUT, I got a high five from the instructor! Whooo hooo! This has never happened to me before.


Here we are again: day 1

Wow, it’s been so long. I’m glad I’ve still paid the small fee to see have access to my site, because here I am. The years of catch-up are too much, so we’ll skip that for now.

Whole30 is doing an official “Whole30 At Home” during this COVID crisis and I need a big slap in the face reality check, so I’m doing it. And using this site as my food log, personal journal, and exercise log! I don’t care if no one reads it, it’s for me. I do better writing it all down and this works for me.

I may as well restart the 365 days of exercise again as well! I need more than 30 days to roll this big body to the right side of the tracks so a combo food/exercise is where I’m going again.

Some days will be done in IF (intermittent fasting) format, as I don’t alway like to eat a traditional breakfast, nor do I eat my dinner late. Thus, I just number my meals.

Day 1: 
(1000) Meal 1: coconut milk chia seed ‘mix’ (pudding?) with berries. Not pictured, side of bacon that I burned, but ate anyway. No waste! Handful of grapes.

Meal 2: stir fry veggies (no pic)
Meal 3: chicken soup with tons of veggies, sparkling water (finished eating at 1745)

AM: 40 minutes on the Peloton bike. I did Robin’s 30min Hamilton ride and a cool down.
PM: 20 minutes on the Peloton. I felt this one. I didn’t eat enough yesterday and feel it today

Successful first day! Overall thoughts: I will need more filling food tomorrow. Maybe some tuna, big salad, sausage, etc. I didn’t eat enough today for not eating enough yesterday. 

Jan. 1-11.

Well, I procrastinated. I’ll condense each day to save the reader from boredom. To really write about my workouts (for myself), I need to not have more than 5 days in a post.

Jan 1!: EPSCAR (El Paso County Search & Rescue) 5k: “rain, snow, or 20 below.”
Huge fans of the search & rescue, saving people from Pikes Peak, the Incline and other areas of the county. And feel sorry for them when saving ill-prepared tourists from tackling our outdoor attractions.
I didn’t feel great about my pace, but then I looked at the elevation profile from my watch.

2: 30min walk at dog park. Kettlebell: 50 swings, v-ups, presses.
3 & 4: Forgot! Can’t recall, but I *know* I did workout. This is why I need to log…It’s really bothering me that I can’t remember.
Tuesday, Jan 5: CrossFit: 8 rounds: 100m row, 10 squats (w/35lb kb)
Jan 6th : 2mi walk-Garden of the Gods.


Same spot: 1 day difference! Wed walk, Thurs walk.

Jan 7th:1.5mi walk-GoG
Jan 8: Skiing. 3hr. (UGH. Terrible drive through a storm and was really tired. Good snow and no people though.)

9: Yoga: 1hr “active recovery”. It was not as yin as it usually is. Felt hard.
10: 30min walk, dog park. Kettlebell: 50 swings, 20 presses, v-ups, Russian twists.
11: Warmup: airdyne. Workout: Weightlifting (pushpress, front squat), prowler (40kg+heavyassprowler), 20lbs. slamballs.


Push press warmup. It’s hard to get lifting pics when there isn’t anyone to take one!

FOOD! I’m doing Whole30, and I’m not caught up enough to log each thing I eat per day. I’d like to get back to that, but not right now. The first couple days weren’t as hard as I thought, thankfully. Guess I’m used to doing these.
Some notes, new things, & recommendations:
I made my own ghee! It’s not perfect, but my first batch was pretty good. I thought I burned it, but when it cooled, it was a nice buttery color.


1. ghee, 2. furikake (delicious so far), 3. addicting mayo, 4. Grapefruit season!

NomNom Paleo’s spicy tuna cakes are really good-and really easy! I ate on them for 2 days.
Primal Kitchen (from Marks Daily Apple) chipotle lime mayo is better than I expected. I like it better than the regular mayo. (Found at Whole Foods)


1. Eggs w/veggies & tomatillo salsa, 2. spicy tuna cakes w/brussels, kale & spinach, 3. Big tuna salad, 4. carrot & short rib stew


I had seafood 4 days this week. I’ve been craving it lately.


I leave you with this!
