Ok we’re on to the 3rd day of the October Project and I’m feeling pretty good about this.
I had a crappy start to the day as I slept through my alarm clock. Actually, I had set my clock for 5:00 am so I’d have plenty of time to get to the pool and swim for about an hour before work. Well, I guess I must have just turned the alarm off and the next thing I knew it was 6:35 am. Yeah, normally I’m just about to work by that time. Needless to say, I did the walk of shame past all my coworkers when I finally got to work.
Well, here’s the food consumption for today:
Breakfast – 2 Slices of Whole Wheat Bread with Peanut Butter (Starting to see a trend here)
Snack – 1 Small Gala Apple
Lunch – 1 Can of Chicken Noodle Soup, Toast, Baby Carrots
Snack – Clif Bar and Small Gala Apple
Dinner – Steak Fajitas
My work out today consisted of:
1/2 hour of spinning
Push ups – 5,5,5,5
Running one mile on the treadmill
This running on the treadmill crap – sucks. That’s the first time in like 5 years I’ve run that far on a treadmill. I asked my co worker Mike if he ever gets bored running on the gerbil track. I think he said he didn’t mind it, but I can’t remember cause I was thinking to myself how much more enjoyable it would be running outside instead.
For the record, I hate running. I’m not good at it and I’d rather be swimming or biking. But since the fire station doesn’t have a swimming pool (minor detail) and the bike thing doesn’t really work out while I’m on duty, I guess I’ll try to tolerate it in the future. I was actually surprised how good I felt after running today.
Tomorrow I have a day off from working anywhere – YEAH!!! So, after I get the kids to school and do all the jobs the boss has lined up for me, I’m going to try to get a good long ride in before the Utah vs. USC game. I’m afraid I’ll cave on my diet structure and inhale a hot dog or nachos or some other delicious, fattening type of food at the game, so I’m going to try and burn up a couple thousand calories as a buffer. Go Utes!!!
