day eleven

Yesterday I managed to go without dried fruit — I may have managed to go several days, but now I can’t remember. Anyway, today I needed a little boost in the evening as I graded papers, so I thought, “Hey, I’ll have me a little sugar.” And then I thought, “Oooh. That was good…maybe I’ll have me some more…” I can see how sugar has weaseled its way into our diets. It goes straight to your brain like crack.

One egg, 3 slices of (burnt — yuk) bacon [It’s what happens when you try to do a load of laundry while you’re frying bacon. Not the sharpest, me.]
Tea with almond milk

2 more slices of yucko-bacon

Heavenly roast pork with apple gravy, this time with some spaghetti squash thrown in for good measure.

almonds, pistachios, cashews

Several handsful of dried carrots
one small pear (whee!)

cashews, dates, and dried blueberries (whee!)

A few bites of roast pork + spaghetti squash + gravy, but I wasn’t feeling it. I might (gasp!) be a little bit sick of it already.

Well, the workout was hard to describe, and harder to get through. But I did. On the board were the following movements:
5 pistols (one-legged squats)/each side,
10 toes-to-bar,
20 burpees,
40 kettlebell swings (I did 40#),
60 double-unders,
80 hand-release push-ups,
and 100 lunges.

We first got three minutes to get as far as we could (I completed a couple kb swings, not many). Then we rested for a minute. Then we got six minutes to get as far as we could, starting back at the beginning with the pistols, and that time I got to the double-unders and completed like 29 of them or so. Then we rested for a minute (maybe two). Then, we were timed for our completion of the full workout. I always forget to look at my time, so I don’t remember how long it took, but I do remember taking a nap on the concrete floor in between hand-release push-ups. Oh. My. Hell.

It was a great workout!
