I weightlifted when I got home
today. Worked on my chest and triceps. Did the bench press with barbell,
inclined bench press with dumbbells, dumbbell flyes, dips, french curls, and
bent over dumbbell press. When I have a good weightlifting workout, I stay warm
all night long. That means my body is burning calories and I am losing weight.
I had a normal breakfast. Two servings of Instant Grits. A scrambled egg, a
tablespoon of butter, 8 ounces of orange juice and a 6 ounce glass of milk.
I went to Subway for lunch. I had a turkey breast and ham sandwich on wheat
bread. Only 6 inches. I asked for light mayo on the sandwich, included cheese,
spinach, lettuce, and tomatoes. I did have potato chips and a 12 ounce cola.
Mary and I both ate too much for dinner. We made sloppy joes and we both should
have stopped at one sandwich. But we over celebrated fat Tuesday with 3
sandwiches for me and potato chips. I drank water, which was the only positive
So Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and is normally a day of fasting for Roman
Catholics. Fasting doesn't mean you don't eat anything, it normally means you
eat less each meal. So if I normally have 2 servings of grits every morning,
then I should reduce that to one serving. Cut each meal in half.
Even if you are not Catholic, the lenten season is a good time to reevaluate
your New Year resolutions and to re-commit to making positive things happen in
Good luck today and have a great day!
