There is a man that runs around my town all of the time carrying himself with no evidence of being tired. You may see him out at the park r...


January 13th & Treadmill Bike

I had a guilty feeling tonight after eating my meal. It wasn't because of what I ate...but because of how much of it I ate. I thought about it around 10:30pm -- that is 3 hours past the time I ate it. I wonder if that is progression - in a weird way?

My wife says I should put pictures every once in a while. While I may do that for this -- I have yet to take a picture for it. I figured I could find some random picture and attach it for you though.

I found this pic from Ecofitology

January 12th & Nutritional Tip 1

I felt like I ate a lot today but I think it was that I felt like I was eating all day. I had my meals and then snacks in between. I didn't feel overwhelmed though with food in my stomach. I didn't have that bloated feeling. No one likes that full feeling (the one where you have to unbutton your pants and lay back so that you are not all crowded inside). I wonder how much of being "full" is a psychological thing? Something to think about.

Nutritional Tip:

I have read that we need to be drinking around 64 ounces of water a day. This helps in virtually every aspect of your body. This is from your brain, to your joints, and also to your nerves. Some of this quality health from water you won't even realize is taking place but the biggest thing that I have noticed is that I have to pee a lot. This means that my kidneys are working well and getting rid of the non-healthy things building up. As we get rid -- we must also replace. That's just some of the idea behind water.

Food intake:

1. 1 cup coffee
2. 1 1/2 servings of Raison Bran Cereal
3. Handful of Chips - Dorito again
4. Deli Chicken Sandwhich on wheat w/ cheese and mayo
5. 1 12 oz Diet Pepsi
5. 8 oz of oven roasted chicken on salad (lettuce, cucumbers, black olives, green peppers, and onions w/ thousand island dressing
6. 2 white chip macadamian nut cookies from Subway
7. 1 cup plain yogurt w/banana, strawberry slices, and crushed walnuts on top
8. 1 cupcake (girl brought in snacks for her birthday at school)
9. 60+ ounces of water
