      I think everyone who's seen that movie remembers that scene
      I don't think its one of my favs, but it is a very good movie.

      • March Madness

        2. SLEEP
        3. Reduce my fat?
        4. Some kind of creative “mind” play

        Food
        L – same BAS as yesterday.



        S – a COCONUT HEART! Damn it!!! and 6 almonds
        D – Ham & pineapple “Pizza”, sweet potato fries, Batty’s mango & avocado salad ½ C blueberries and 3 strawberries



        Not the best photos

        Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
        I was gonna do the 5 Tibetan Rites, but I didn't have time in the morning, I was too sore in the afternoon and its not happening tonight...

        Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
        C25K – week 3, run 3

        Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
        Bed at 10:30! Awake at 7, but I lay in bed with the Papillons until 8.
        My sister called. We were supposed to go running OUTSIDE today, but the radio said it was -14 C. I don’t run in -14 C!
        We decided to go into the city and run on the indoor track. I got ready, dropped my Daughter off at school and then picked up my sister.

        We were “running” before 10! I did C25K week 3, run 3. I used a counter to keep track of the laps. I had run/walked 3 K by the time I finished the C25K “program” My sister was still running, so I did some walk/sprint laps. When we finished I’d run/walked 4K. I’ve still got a LONG way to go before April 10!

        I could really feel my legs afterwards!

        We stopped at the grocery store. I spent $80. (Running in the city costs me money!)

        I was home by 12:30! I made the same salad as yesterday for lunch, simply because I already had it “saved” in FitDay, and it was easier to repeat the salad than enter new data…

        I showered, checked MDA and then played with the Papillons. I had to take my Daughter to physio at 3.

        I had bought mangos and red onions (‘cause I had Batty’s mango salad on my mind) so I made a ham pizza to go with the salad. And I just HAD to try the sweet potato fries that I bought today I also decided that I was going to make and eat what I wanted tonight, without consciously limiting because I was “afraid” of the #’s.

        Oh, yeah, today’s #’s

        Total Calories: 1,532
        Fat: 97.4 g, 864 C, 63%
        Carbs: 87.1 g, 332 C, 24%
        Protein: 45.4 g, 180 C, 13%

        Not as bad as I thought they would be…


        Couch again tonight. There are a bunch of links that were posted on the Reality Check Thread, I’m gonna try to read my way through them tonight. Hopefully I’ll learn something that’ll help…

                • Ha! I love it, what an awesome idea

                  Oh, I also meant to say, kudos on the running. I'm trying to re-motivate myself to exercise. I just can't seem to drag my butt into gear

                  • Great job on the running. Hopefully soon you'll be able to get outdoors more often. So much nicer.

                    Your eats look great and so do the numbers for your daily totals.

                    And you're making awesome progress on the sleep pattern thing...though I see you're still online...and I believe it's 1110 your time...hehehe

                      It is an awesome idea! But it wasn't mine.
                      I think it was originally Batty's idea...

                      Thanks,
                      Yeah, I have days like that too. Sometimes its hard to get motivated.

                      OK, here's what happened
                      I DID stay on the computer until 10:45, but then I closed my Macbook (without logging off) and got ready for bed.
                      I was in bed at 11:05

                      So, yeah, I guess my computer was on-line at 11:10
                      But it decided to log off sometime during the night, 'cause this morning I had to log back on.

                      Damn computer has a mind of its own

                            There was a T of corn starch in the sauce. What can I use instead of corn starch to thicken sauces??

                            Checked MDA, wasted about an hour on-line.
                            Closed Macbook.
                            Cleaned the kitchen. Laundry. PBF.
                            Lunch. Surf MDA.
                            Downloaded and tried CRONoMeter instead of FitDay after reading yesterday’s MDA post.
                            Close Macbook.
                            Chilled my wine
                            Cleaned the bathroom. PBF. Laundry.
                            Made supper. Drank wine.

                            Entered my foods in CRONoMeter.

                            Here's the #s:
                            Total Calories: 1237
                            Protein: 68g, 23%
                            Carbs: 57g, 17%
                            Fat: 59 g , 43% (well CRONoMeter calls them Lipids…)
                            Alcohol: 31 g 17%

                            I suppose I should enter the same data in FitDay, as a comparison…
                            FitDay
                            Total Calories: 1,187
                            Fat 66g, 593 C, 50%
                            Carbs: 45.5 g, 168 C, 14%
                            Protein: 48.5 g, 198 C, 17%
                            Alcohol: 31.5 g, 218 C, 19%

                            Most foods were fairly close in #s, but cauliflower was more than 2x as many calories in FitDay. Ham was 25 Cal more on CRONoMeter. I don’t know why my total Protein #’s are so different??? And CRONoMeter doesn't give break down the fat/protein/carb calories.

                            Tracking is SO much fun…

                            But I think I’ll stick with CRONoMeter. It was faster and “easier” to use…

                            • Your foods look lovely and the wine looks great! No suggestions for thickening the sauce, though I've seen other posts using other more primal thickeners.

                              You've really improved on the pullups since you started . I actually stopped at my pullup bar in the basement last evening and did a quick chin up, the first in a while. I really feel them in the core, strange.

                              Interesting about the differences between fitday and chronometer, I haven't tried that one. I think that shows that you can't take any of them as totally accurate.

                              Happy Friday

                              • I've used Agar Agar powder which works quite well. I also use potato starch, but don't know how you feel about potatoes. Personally I wouldn't stress about a little cornflour. I happen to think that corn is kinda innocuous if a tiny bit creeps into your diet, but then I could just be trying to justify the nachos that I had for dinner made with white corn chips.
