155.6 this morning - water. I'm quite swollen up again, after an evening at the gym. During which, I must note, I hit my Nike+ FuelBand goal for the first time. I also "won" 8 hours yesterday. Easily amused much? You bet. Anyway, I'm all stiff and sore this morning - had to get up at 2:30 to get Advil to get back to sleep.
Day 1 of the Whole 30 is over, and went fairly well. Here's the details:
- tea with cream
- the usual supplements
- chef's salad with ham, chicken, cheese, and blue cheese dressing
- cheese (prior to workout - I was starving!)
- Andouille sausage and mustard
- cole slaw (commercial, so a bit of a deviation)
- pecans with cheese spread
- more cheese (starving at bedtime)
- 1 tsp honey - I'm not giving that up for anything
That said about the honey, it wasn't working all that well last night - or I am having hot flashes again. I woke up at 10:50, 2:30, and just before 5:00 that I know of, and didn't get back to sleep easily any of those times. Feeling a little foggy this morning as a result. I am getting overheated at night - can't tell if it's too hot in the bedroom or if it's just me, yet. Probably the latter (heavy sigh). I would so like to be done with this.
At the gym, I did 13 laps, which works out to 1.14 miles - and the last lap was a cooldown. Unfortunately, the FuelBand "session" tracker doesn't track steps, which is a bit odd - I was hoping to work out how long my steps are, for use in figuring distance from the step counter. After the walking workout (I used my lovely progressive racewalk playlist), I did a few weights - inner and outer thighs, arm curls (which were pathetic!), and a back extension machine. I didn't go through all the weights to work out settings and stuff - I need to get some sort of paper set up to record all that on first. Next trip.
In the meantime, I will be working on attaining my goal for the "streak" (3 in a row), and winning more hours. Maybe go out and walk outside tomorrow as a New Year's thing. And I need to figure out what I want to achieve with the exercise - leaning out, for sure, but strength or overall endurance? And where?
