We may have a minor problem child (we'll sort him out; I'm working on it), but I love this shift. WE DID POOL PT YEEEEEEEE. Meaning I will have tons of energy and eat all the things. Actually, I'm running out of food (yet again), so when I got to work and saw COOKIES and thought they actually looked face stuffable, I knew the apple and peanut butter I had after PT (in addition to the breakfast of RS bread, eggs, and avocado (and Sauws!)!) wasn't enough. My solution; there's couple half quarts of ice cream left over from the brownie day. So good in dark dark coffee. No guilt.
Yup, a couple tablespoons of plain vanilla after swimming? Especially on a vaugely low carb day. Meh. I'll deal with any scales tomorrow. Considering this:
1SG at my weigh in last week: Yeah, I see this all the time with soldiers coming off of nights.
Me: Well 1SG, I was at my lowest in a long time last March (on night shift), and I always gain coming back to days (remember those eight pounds?).
1SG: Oh really?
My scale this morning, after brownies, whiskey, my birthday weekend, and the first week on nights: 154.9 (5.1 pounds back down, below my new shorter height's max weight of 156 and my weight a week ago of 157).
So, food today
2 hard boiled eggs
RS (oat + nut + psyllium) bread
2 tablespoons peanut butter
coffee with 2-3 tablespoons vanilla ice cream
8 oz ribeye leftover from my birthday
mixed salad greens
basil dressing (tweaked from the last time: mayo, ACV, salt, pepper, tiny grating of garlic, shitton of basil)
chicken soup made similarly to the other day (8 ounces poached chicken and 8 ounces potatoes with asperagus and peas)
Oh yeah, about that. I did one extremely lazy, slow, very VERY careful lap of butterfly. My shoulder hurt, but less that when doing injury PT (facepalm). Now, it feels meh, a little pain, which is pretty usual, but so much looser. I'm fairly happy with this. Doesn't mean I'll be doing that often, at least until I get the slap tear fixed, but it's hopeful. Maybe after the army stops messing with me, it'll heal up enough, which I'll take at this point.
So workouts that are good for me: mobility, yoga, swimming, walking/hiking, bike/sprint intervals. This is what I should work my plans around.
