Pumping iron

Prime goals for today were to keep active and to protect my foot where a blister is developing. Both were achieved. This did mean that the goal of 10,000 steps fell way short - the total was 3779.

However, I did do 30+ minutes in the gym (another goal). Nancy Eng MacNeill went with me and helped me figure out some of the weight machines.

That was pretty cool. I can feel my muscle mass increasing even as I type. Plans to run for governor of California dance through my head. I will be adding some weight work in the days ahead.

Eating also went pretty well. May have overeaten at a dinner hosted by Sara and John. But if I did, it was on higher protein, lower carb foods.

I spent most of my time inhaling steam off a concoction of ginger, lemon, and honey. I am either having massive allergy issues or I have developed a cold. Or I may have both going on at the same time in an effort to have it all. We will see what tomorrow brings.

The hummingbird picture has nothing to do with the day as far as I know. It is just a cool picture from this summer at Ghost Ranch.

  1. Pumping iron always feels good though. I love it. So, I have set a 2010 goal of running a half marathon (I have officially lost my mind). I think it'll be sometime in the fall--and I'll probably try and run for some kind of charity. We'll see how that goes! Training needs to begin now...
