OK-the camera I'm using now weighs .04 lbs. as you can see. I knew I was getting leaner, just wasn't sure how much.When I weigh myself, it's gonna be naked and I am subtracting the weight of the camera.Stoopid flash.
I decided to lose 10 lbs for Ironman Canada, it makes the hills on the bike much easier.I've known for a while I would get down to 150 lbs., but not too soon.It's so easy! I am currently 152 lbs.,still 5 weeks to go.
You know, it's absolutely ridiculous that there is an obesity epidemic in the USA (less so in Canada), and every year all you hear is "eat low fat" or "go vegetarian", "eat whole grains", blah,blah, blah.
Can you imagine our primal ancestors eating grain? Not likely. Would you graze? Nature wants the seeds to survive, so they are sorta indigestible unless ground up or sprouted. Even after that they still contain toxins. For me, no pasta, no rice, no bread, no potatoes. Bam. End of story.
I've lost six pounds since I last weighed myself, eating a diet consisting of bacon,pork,eggs, steak, ribs,fish, fresh veggies, cheese, full fat yogurt and cottage cheese.My diet is around 60% fat,30% protein and10% complex carbs (raw veggies) .My only cheating is a few beers at night.
Six tall boys being "a few".It will be two years this fall, and the best part is, I'm not having any trouble with hunger or sticking to my diet.
Swiss showed up at a race one day in some absolutely primo deck shoes and I knew I had to get a a pair, Here they are. I know when Captain sees them he is going to be insanely jealous. Last pair Capper, sorry, no extra large sizes available. These are to be worn only after a race in which you earn a spot on the podium.
On an extremely cool note,we have a huge Pylon turnout shaping up for OHIO in November. When we were there last month, we noticed that people in Ohio HATE people from Michigan, which will be fun. I will be wearing my Michigan shirt and Michigan hat for the run.
Good luck to Beaver at Ironman Lake Placid tomorrow!
