My “Summer of Fit” has begun. What is it? Ten weeks of measured exercise and nutrition with my personal goal of losing 30 lbs. and getting in shape for some big summer adventures.
I’ll be roughly following Tim Ferriss’ Slow-Carb Diet, which involves three daily meals with veggies, lean protein and beans. Built-in to Tim’s approach is a “free day” each week — for me on Saturday.
For fitness, I’ll be following this rough schedule:
- Monday: Hike at Runyon Canyon
- Tuesday: Body weight strength training
- Wednesday: Hike at Griffith Park
- Thursday: Yoga
- Friday: Rest
- Saturday: Long hike
- Sunday: Rest
I’ll report my progress daily in this thread. Feel free to join in.June 17, 2014 at 6:46 am #179407
Yesterday was Day 1 of 70. Here’s how it went.
Breakfast: 2 eggs, sauteed spinach and black beans
Lunch: Chipotle steak bowl with beans, peppers, corn, salsa and guacamole (no rice)
Snack: 10 almonds
Dinner: Turkey sandwich, celery, red peppers and hummus. One glass of wine
Fitness: Hiked at Runyon Canyon. Got winded on the steep section, but felt strong.
Bottom line: A successful first day.June 18, 2014 at 6:45 am #179409
Day 2 of 70
Breakfast: 2 eggs, spinach and black beans.
Lunch: Chipotle salad with lettuce, black beans, pinto beans, peppers, chicken, salsa verde and guacamole
Dinner: Turkey sandwich, glass of wine
Fitness: The Daily Dozen (12 bodyweight exercises, performed in 12 minutes).
I felt a bit hungry before dinner. Need to remember that hunger is okay. A little sore from the Daily Dozen, mainly because it involved using muscles I don’t normally exercise. Looking forward to hiking at Griffith Park on Wednesday.June 19, 2014 at 12:28 pm #179410
