30 Day Diet Reboot Day 7

30 Day Diet Reboot Day 7

January 7, 2018 – 181.00 pounds, 12.2% Body Fat

The fun continues.

Felt my clothes fitting a bit better just now as I put them on.  Feels good.  Positive reinforcement.

Went shopping yesterday and made salads for the week.  Today I’ll get the rice cooker going and make another big batch of brown rice.  I’ll use the vegetable rack to steam some beets.  Beets are a great source of nutrition – especially for athletes.

Got down to minus 10 or so yesterday. We kept the fire going all day and didn’t have any problems. I dug a trench in the snow in the front yard for Buddy to get out and do his business.

When I was at the store there was a jicama on sale.  I didn’t know what it was so I bought it.  It’s some sort of tuber thing like Poi or Yams.  I peeled it up and had some raw and it was slightly nutty, crunchy and fairly tasteless.

After talking to Rachel I tried to make jicama fries but they were quite awful.  The consistency was wrong.  I think my insides objected to the jicama because I had a sore stomach in the afternoon and some aggressive BMs.

Got up this morning and it was -7.  Drove over to see my mom early.  Then met the guys for a run around 10:30.  We ended up doing a slow 8 miles.  It wasn’t bad.  It warmed up to 2-3 degrees and there was sun and no wind.  Felt good to get outside.

When I came home Teresa was making bacon.  I had a green smoothie!  I made my smoothies too thick and I put chia seeds in them which makes them gelatinous.  I mixed in some sparkling water and it was interestingly refreshing – like a fruity bubble tea.

That’s it.  Traveling this week so we’ll see if I can stay on the good nutrition train and get under 180.

Feel good.

Chris,
