2016 Day 2

First official weigh-in day of “The New Deal”. At age 54, 5′ 9″ tall, I’m 156.8 lbs and 18% body fat. That’s too much fat. By like, double. So that’s the number I’ll be watching over the course of the next few months and it will be interesting to see what happens to the overall weight with a renewed commitment to The Zone and the Crossfit box.

Had my new standard breakfast and lunch today (see Day 1) and my first trip back to the box in two full weeks. Man it feels good. WOD was 3 rounds of rowing, kettle bell swings, goblin squats and assisted pull ups, after the standard core warmup and some handstand work.

I forgot to bring my Primal Strips vegan jerky snack today, so I was really starving by the time I got home. I’ve been following my Crossfit workouts with a plant-protein shake, so I had one of those and then a little later an ounce of cheese with 4 wheat thins – hey, it’s Friday.

Dinner was vegetable lasagna with a big salad and a glass of cabernet.

A couple of good bike rides planned for the weekend. I’m training to ride RAGBRAI this year, but I’m going to do it on my one speed Bianchi track bike so I’m doing all my riding on that bike to prepare. I just signed up for a flat century next weekend, just to be sure I can go a hundred miles on that bike. Shouldn’t be a problem, but I need to know!
