100 Days of Fitness - Day 5

Posted November 12, 2010

What is your biggest food temptation? What food draws you in like a powerful magnet? I think I could eat pimento cheese until chunks of cheddar came out of my ears. Mindless eating of chips during an exciting basketball game on television is also a weakness. What about you? Please share, compare and dare to surprise with your answers.

Okay. You know I’m on this fitness and nutrition campaign. I’m trying to eat less and work out more. It’s called 100 Days of Fitness. This is day five. Piece of cake! No, I better not. But Coach Tara Wind of Lifetime Fitness in Cary has left a big blank on my calendar today so I think I’ll goof off a bit and give my muscles and joints a day to recover after a grueling but totally satisfying week of workouts, Yesterday’s Tempo Cardio 50 minute set was uneventful. I did 10 minutes on the treadmill, 20 minutes on the bicycling, 10 minutes on the elliptical machine and then 10 minutes running and shooting on the basketball court.

I think I’m making progress. My daughter Lauren gave me a hug last night and said: “You feel really strong, Dad!”   More motivation for the 95 days ahead!


Have a great weekend! I get to do an exercise of my choice tomorrow. What is your exercise of choice? Mine is basketball. And don’t forget to comment about food cravings!

    Mindless eating of chips? It is a conspiracy, 1oz or 17oz package; easy to open not easily closed. Obviously - a unit-serve packaging plan by the producers.

    You know Bill every once in a while I get a notion that I need to exercise too, but if lay down long enough it goes away...

    My biggest food craving is peanut butter and jelly sandwich on white bread. with a glass of milk. I could eat 4 of those sandwiches in one sitting. I haven't had a PB&J or milk in over 5 years and hope I never will again, God willing.
