Day 18 -- Wholly Frigg'in Awesome Day!
On the eve of the 17th, I did an hour's worth of floor work -- core strength, yoga ball, mat work. Then had a great night's sleep.
Morning of the 18th -- woke up and made uber awesome breakfast: Omlette with tomato, onion, cheese, zuccheni and cilantro with a few sausages on the side. Don't forget a yummy coffee with whipping cream.
Then I took my fabulous and fun dog, Basil, on my walking route. We stopped in at the school yard and played for :45 minutes. Basil brought his ball with him, so after I did 20 assisted pull ups, we had fun sprinting across the school yard. Must have done 8 x 80m sprints at top speed --- Basil LOVED THE FUN IT THE GAME and so did I.
Then I took Basil home, switched into a lighter jogging jacket, and headed back out to the killer, 800m hill at a 16% grade -- it's a killer. With my ipod plugged into my ears, I spend the next hour running up said killer hill, and lightly jogging down. Cars passing were honking and waving because no one runs this hill --- it's so brutal. Then after the last frigg'in run up it, I did a light jog home...had a shower, and ready for school work. I never felt so great in my life!
The pulled pork that I made this weekend finally came out of the slow cooker this morning --- it's going to be great this week with salads or stirfry.
And lastly, I can definitely see a visible shrinkage in my tummy (across the belly area). I know I'm down 1/2" and I see that more loss will be forthcoming. I believe this to be a combination of increasing the core workouts, and eating about 400 more calories per day. My hair still seems to be falling out, but I hope that over the next weeks of increased carbs that that will even itself out. And if not, I'm looking on the bright side that if I'm bald, I'll have less wind resistance in my hill running --- it's all good.
Hope everyone is having a grand day! /Lu
