Yesterday morning I woke up and did 2 miles on the treadmill, went to the park and did some arm workouts, and concluded the night with two more miles on the mill of tread. Best part of yesterday though? I discovered this fantastic creature called a Santa Fe Salad… Now whereas some of you might think it sounds like some kinda western sex torture, it is actually a salad with a lot of spicy elements. Various pepper flavorings make the world go ’round. Also, Grilled Talapia from the fine folks at Gorton’s. Not to be a complete jerk to my stomach, I also had one small slice of cheese pizza.
Playlist from both of my treadmill sessions from yesterday:
The Blood Pressure Monister has been returned safely to the doctor from when it came… but not without leaving one final pleasing peace of info. The aforementioned Monister allowed me to sleep maaaaybe 4 hours last night. I woke up at 2:00, and unable to fall back out by 4:oo I said fuck it. Got up and had breakfast followed by a power walk on the treadmill. I intended the walk to be a mile, but at the end “Thrashard” by D.R.I. came on so I had to stay on until the song was over… mostly because I wanted to. Anyway, after a shower and recovery time, my final blood pressure reading before returning the Monister was 124/73!!! That might be a tad high for most of you, but that is probably the lowest I have ever seen my BP!
Then, after arriving to work, straight to the scale for the first official weigh-in… Drum roll… 273!!!! Moving in the right direction!
’twas a night of….you guessed it… salad for dinner… (“And the winner of the Broken Record Award goes to…”). Ahh, but it was a lovely collection of vegetables topped with grilled chicken and…ahem…don’t shoot… bacon! But let me tell you about dessert!!! For dessert I had a giant creamy slice of 2.25 miles on the treadmill! Seriously, I am becoming friends with the treadmill. I did have to pause in the middle so that the Blood Pressure Monster…uh… Monitor… (Monister???) could take its reading but then I was right back into a walkin’ wonderland… Sleeping with the Blood Pressure Monister tonight is going to be a challenge, but in the immortal words of King Henry Da Fourth… “I got dis…”
[PS – Tomorrow morning is the first Official Weigh-In]
