hope you're feeling better! can you use the arm bike at the gym while your pelvis gets back into its former pelvicness?
Thanks! I am feeling better. My gym has no arm bike.

 

morning

I woke feeling very good, with a lot of energy.

oatmeal w/cinnamon, strong ginger tea, with Assam black tea and soy milk (unsweetened of course)

psylium husks, multi, 800 mg ibuprofen

later am

smoothie: banana, soy milk, unsweetened cocoa, hemp protein

 

afternoon

I went to the chiropractor. She's a great one!

lentil soup

 

gym

Elliptical crosstrainer 2.5 mls @ L 11, then 5 min cool down

 

navel orange

strong ginger tea with black Assam tea and soy milk

planning to have alfalfa sprouts, brussel sprouts w/margarine and 2 boca burgers for dinner, after the 2nd of my 2x daily silent meditations (20 year habit)

 

I feel great! (just a tiny bit of remembrance of the knife in the back feeling from last weeks fall) I'm psyched to continue my cardio blitz and maybe add some lifting again. Still, I'm sporting near 100 kg body weight. I feel confident that I'll redouble my palette control and surpass last year's low of 192 lbs. Honestly I should be in the 170s. I look forward to the increased ability in running and yoga once the weight leaves again. I want to be able to do some pull ups and chin ups! While I've been eating clean, I need to improve portion control. I need to drastically reduce my tortilla chip consumption and could do with out so much pb, if I do have a little. Besides running in the aforementioned 5k events a few of my Democrat pals will have when the warm weather returns to Ohio, my goals include feeling ok about posting "after" pictures in a few months, around the 4 year anniversary of this log. At 2 years I was able to show some impressive progress. I will recapture any lost ground and surpass my previous "after" pics.

Wut?!?! A bike?!?!?!

oh yes you will.

 

how's your injury doing?

My back is much better and I'm off the ibu, not even doing last night's dose, thanks. The recumbent bike was how I healed a limp of over a year a couple of years back. I still wanted to baby my current injuries, so I gave the tread mill a break for a couple days. Most importantly the other machines allow me time in the zone. The machines say I'm their average 20 year old, can I get to a 10 year old's HR?

fool y damas ... that made me laugh... the dummy and the ladies.

how was your injury after running?

No lady would get near this fool after all the garlic in those "Egyptian refries."

My back didn't seem to mind the run, but the inner hips are warning me to rest today and all pertinent muscles were cumulatively tired from before. So, I plan to skip gym today and maybe tomorrow. Which is ok, as I want Sundays to be a gym day, rather than that kind of rest day.

hey, is there any ginger in that menu plan? also, have you thought of boosting your turmeric intake? bromelain is also a good natural anti-inflammatory, your chiro will of course be able to help you with doasage.
I'll try and remember to get some ginger tomorrow and to use more turmeric.
