I caught up today, did the weights and the Fisetin that I was supposed to do yesterday ( a little short on the wine…), got in a session with the hyperbaric chamber.
I mentioned before that I need to transition to free weights from machines. I walked over to the free weight section of the gym and hefted a few weights. Now that I see the possibilities, I’ll work some in for next week. But the Cerbex machines still have their appeal. It’s a good workout and very fast for three sets of nine different exercises.
Quick Note: I stepped on the scale and found that I have lost 5.5 lbs, just short of 2 lbs per week.
I’m liking this.
In fact, I’m quite confident right now that I will be able to continue with the key parts of the project to get to a much better weight, even if the other parts of the experiment do not.
This is good. I can do it, I’m on my way. This is a substantial shift in psychology, from uncertainty, hope and anticipation to an acceptance of a positive change in lifestyle. Will I make it stick? We will see.
One of my favorite foods to eat is rolled oysters with a certain recipe. But they are soooo filling and sooo full of calories I haven’t made them for a while. I was never sure if I could keep to my calorie budget. So I finally decided to add up the calories based on the components, and here is what I came up with.
crackers, three packs 1470
oysters two containers 360
flour 2 oz 206
eggs x 4 312
milk x 3/4 cup 111.75
vegetable oil, 3/8 cup 46.5
honey x 1 oz 172
Total calories 2778.25
Total number of oysters: 22 in a batch
126.3 Calories per oyster (note the decimal precision – yeah, right…)
So now I know how many oysters I can eat and still be on the Project trajectory. Yaaaay! They are good for 2-3 days without spoiling (in my opinion…).
