Day 126: The 1st Annual Triathalon

It didn't start out as a great eating day, but I did go a mile on the treadmill (20 min); 2 miles on the elliptical (32 min) and 1.5 laps in the pool. Okay, I am far from an olympic athlete, but even I was starting to impress myself. The lap.5 did take my breath away though, so I obviously need a lot more training before I can do whatever amount you're supposed to do to get a workout (does anyone know this?). Ruby and I spent another hour flailing around the pool. I don't think that counts as exercise. When we got back, we pushed Magnolia around in the jog-stroller for about an hour.

1 Slice Mestemacher Bread (Rye)
1 Tsp Peanut Butter
12 oz coffee
1 Egg (two bites of an omlette Emily made)
1 oz Ham steak

Greek Salad
Burnt Ends (from Blue Ribbon)

1/2 cup Red Grapes
1/4 cup mixed, unsalted nuts
1 oz salted peanuts
12 oz Coke Zero

Steak & Chicken Tips

Having a big exercise day and then eating a big dinner is a little like winning big at the casino and then spending it all before leaving, but that is one thing I feel I still have a ways to go. In order to maximize my 500 calorie deficit, I've really got to watch it at the dinner, but tonight I did eat quite a few steak tips. Ah well, there's more swimming tomorrow.

Hi, Can't tell you how much I missed reading your blogs....staying at David's with no tv (ie. no Wimbledon) and no internet blogs. But I survived this relative primitive state. Their house is great...and I think they will be really happy there. The neighborhood is especially terrific. You don't know it but you look terrific...from a totally unbiased source! So pleased to be able to see you and Em and your beautiful daughters on my way home today! Love, MOM
