Whole30: Day 19

From June 1 through June 30, I’m participating in the Whole30 clean-up/change your life/heal thyself plan. (Here’s why.)

I did it! I planned a workout for today, then I woke up, took Synthroid, waited the required 30 minutes, ate a protein snack as recommended by Dallas and Moxy-Boss, put on my watch, and hit the backyard. I did it!

2:00 jump rope – practice fancy footwork
2X 10 squats + 10 pushups + 10 rotations
high knees, butt kicks, lunge w/ rotation

2X 5 deadhang pullups w/band

4 rounds:
1:00 dumbbell push press, 15# dbs
1:00 burpees
1:00 rest

This was just what I needed. It was all challenging enough to keep me on my toes, but not so hard that I felt overwhelmed. Also, it was sweaty. My reps on the rounds looked like this:
push press: 32 – 33 – 30 – 30
burpess: 12 – 12 – 12 – 11 (damn it!)

I’m still not eating enough, but at least it was clean. Chicken sausage and summer squash for breakfast… Scotch egg with homemade mayo and summer squash for lunch; green peppers, black olives, cucumbers, and hard-boiled egg for a snack.

8.5 beautiful hours, interrupted by an annoying but not too terribly long wake-up around 1:00 a.m.

Thinkin’ you want to take better care of yourself? (And still trust my judgment after this blog post?!) Here are some guidelines you might find helpful.
