Day 4 – Rest, Relaxation, and Reflection

July 22, 2010

Today was quite unlike yesterday.

Not only was yesterday not a rest day, so it had plenty of activity, but yesterday was also a day without meetings. For those of us in the corporate office world, that means a day in which things actually get done, which are strangely rare. It was bliss.

Today was straight meetings from 9:30 am until 2:00 pm. I believe that having an army of tiny gnomes take sandpaper individually to each nerve ending in my body could have created an equivalent feeling of discomfort and annoyance if they were truly dedicated to their work and put forth their best effort. The best part, of course, is that I also have nearly nothing done to show for it. Actually, I lied – that’s the second-best part. The best part is that I was drained and distracted enough when I left the office that I again forgot to bring my measurements home.

Ah well. At least I got the Before pics done. That counts as reflection, right?

EDIT: The Official Measurements are here. Time to really embarass myself.

Weight: Approximately 204 lbs.

Bodyfat % (caliper test): 21.3%

Blood Pressure: 122/ 78

Resting Heart Rate: 54 bpm

Heart Rate after 3 minute step test: 72 bpm

Strict pushups to failure: 25

Metronome curl-up test: 25 (test cuts off after 1 minute, and 25 is the most you can score)

Bicep: 15″

Waist: 35.25″

Umbilical: 38.5″

Hips: 41.25″

Thigh: 24.13″

Calf: 16.75″

Sit & Reach flexibility best of 3: 25 cm (flexible as a concrete board dipped in shellac)

Breakfast: Half a pound of free-range sausage with a handful of sunflower seeds mixed in, cucumber-tomato salad, small glass of coconut milk, and 3 fish oil caps.

Lunch: Tilapia filet, handful of pecans, 3 fish oil caps, 2000 iU of vitamin D3, massive salad.

Dinner: Half a pound of grass-fed ground beef with guacamole mixed in, small glass of coconut milk, 1000 iU vitamin D3, 3 fish oil caps, cucumber-blueberry mixture.

And I threw in 3 extra strips of bacon a little later, because there’s actually nothing wrong with a little saturated fat.
