Exercise-wise I did a 20 minute core routine before breakfast. mid-morning I walked about a mile (0.5 each way) to a PT appointment - they are working on my shoulders (neck and back) to loosen me up. The goal is to get more range of motion, as I'm limited right now, so that I can swim faster.
But meal-wise things went well! Since I'm blogging daily, I'll keep these brief with a summary of how it went and some photos of my meals. Every so often we'll throw in some metrics, like now!
Starting weight by my scale: 136.2
Body fat by my scale: 23.8%
ISAK skin fold had me at 16.6% body fat. If I had to guess, I'm probably in the middle...but we don't care so much about the numbers right now. I'll weigh weekly and that's it.
I'd prepped myself for the last couple weeks trying out some meals so I was prepared for what was to come.
Here are some pictures of my meals.
|Breakfast - yogurt w/whey protein, fruit and Peanut Butter|
|Lunch: spinach salad with 1/2 avocado and 1 can tuna with EVOO/balsamic vinegar dressing|
|Snack of cottage cheese, grapes, cantalope, milled flax seed and cinnamon|
|Dinner - baked salmon with lemon pepper&dill, and sauted asparagus and cauliflower.|
So let's call day 1 a success - no whole grains or processed foods were consumed. And count 'em, 8-9 servings of fruit and veggies! Now I better get some sleep!
