What did you do today?????

I think we should have a thread here to post what you did today to go in a positive direction for your health.... did you walk, workout, split wood, or just eat healthy??? I think everyone want's at least 90% the same thing in some way so why not see what everyone is doing to help themselves.

Pretty set schedule for me.

Sunday - Run at least 20 minutes at a 7 minute per mile pace. Light Strength training
Monday - Run at least 20 minutes at a 7 minute per mile pace. Light Strength training
Tuesday - At least an hour of pick up basketball, usually more.
Wednesday - Run at least 17 minutes at a 7 minute per mile pace. Light Strength training
Thursday - At least an hour of pick up basketball, usually more.
Friday - Occasional rest day if hurting from basketball, but usually at least 17 minutes of running at 7 min per mile pace with light strength training
Saturday - Run at least 20 minutes at a 7 minute per mile pace in addition to a usual Saturday hike/walk.

Diet wise, avoid processed foods as best I can: fruits, nuts for snacks. Avoid boxed, processed dinners. Avoid snacking after dinner.

My official diet tip is as follows. Avoid anything with added sugars or processed foods in general. I am by no means a big person and didn't really need to lose weight, but about 3-4 years ago, I decided I was done eating foods with added sugar for a while. My wife and I only kept foods with a single ingredient on them in them house to snack on: fruits, vegetables, nuts.

Without even trying, I lost 10 pounds in a month simply by avoiding processed foods with added sugar while keeping a moderate exercise routine. I found that the fruits, nuts, and veggies suppressed my appetite far more than any processed foods ever could, causing me to not only eat healthy but less at the same time.

I slept in today! LOL I will continue my strict diet today and do some walk/jogging for around 20 minutes when I get home tonight, and do legs and abs tomorrow morning at the gym.

So far today, woke up. That's always a plus

Couple eggs/whites for protein and a whole grain roll. Going to the gym midday for 40 minutes cardio and some light leg work.

I ride the bike to work 3 days a week, 15 miles each way. When I get here I go to the gym and work one of the major muscle groups. On the off days from riding I take a walk at lunch time.

Like tpr25, I'm not trying to lose weight, rather just trying to stay healthy. I too gave up processed and sugar added foods years ago. The majority of my carbs come from veggies, nuts, and fruit. Any breads or pastas that I eat are from whole grain.

51 years old and I'm in measurably better shape than at 35. Measured by BP, blood work, and weight.

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

Woke up did legs and abs at gym for a good hour then some light Cardio after. Have my meals all pieced out today to keep my timing and caloriesee correct for my plan. 11 more weeks of hard cutting before I take a 4 week brake to recover and maintain.

Shoulders today! good day at the gym really hit them hard. I will be heavier on protein today and probably higher calories (1800) and tomorrow I will do some intermittent fasting and only have around 600 calories.

Now that I'm feeling better, I switched up my workouts a little. Been running a 2-day split for the last few weeks. Chest/Back/Arms and Legs/Shoulders/Abs workouts each twice per week. So far so good.


I'm trying to lean out a little for summer and shooting to slowly lose between 8-10 pounds. I'm about halfway there now. My diet is generally OK, so all I've really been doing is basically cutting my carb intake in half.

What I did on my summer vacation, I woke up. Went to the downtown, to look for a job, then I hung out in front of the drug store.

Took the dog for a walk, roughly 1 hr. My poor lab got pretty hot in this weather. Lucky for me the easter bunny did not show up at my house so the temptation to eat chocolate wasn't there.
