    I am mostly afraid to shed clothing, since I think, what if it gets colder later, then I will be sorry.


    Running / walking today: 0.00; w-t-d: 0.00; m-t-d: 28.34

    Sat - 7/15/17. back, abs, 30+20 sauna. m-t-d workouts: 15/15. Good back training workout. If I had my official weekly weigh in today, I would have lost about 3 pounds. But I gained weight the last 3 or 4 weigh in's, so it is about time. Today at the pool, they had a DJ, mainly for the little kids. Since I am old now, I found it very loud, and hard to concentrate on the book I am reading, so after getting my 2 hour dose of vitamin D, I left. I just finished reading "In My Own Words", by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It was interesting, but I was expecting more of a biography, not mostly a series of her speeches. But it did give me a better understanding of how the Supreme Court works, the rules of the Supreme Court, how cases are chosen etc. You don't realize how accomplished someone at that level is.

    Sun - 7/16/17. leg training, 30+15 sauna. m-t-d workouts: 16/16. Strong leg training workout. I am off from work tomorrow, so if the long run is happening this week, it is happening tomorrow. I had a high sodium day yesterday, but still was able to lose 2.80 pounds from the prior weigh in a week ago. Without the salt, the results would have been better. On the bright side, that will make next weeks comparison easier.

    Mon - 7/17/17. arms, abs, 15 minutes dreadmill, 30 sauna. m-t-d workouts: 17/17. I wasn't feeling it today to do the long run. Very humid today. But as I saw on someone's t-shirt "wishing is not going to make it happen". Maybe tomorrow.

    Weds - 7/19/17. shoulders; triceps, abs, 30 sauna. m-t-d workouts: 19/19. Tomorrow I hope to run. Once a month in this office, they celebrate the birthday's of the employees who have a birthday that month, with a cake in the boardroom. For me, one piece of cake is never an issue, it is when you eat a whole cake that is when it becomes a problem (which I have done). This time though, they also have a pinata, that turns out to be filled with chocolate. It was broken open early, and there was chocolate all over the floor. So yesterday, not only did I have the cake, but stuffed my face with chocolate also. :( Neither the cake or the chocolate show up in the below numbers. Only salvation was yesterday I ran 6.65 miles in the morning.

    6.65 miles is a nice run.

    I understand the birthday cake and Candy at the office. When they fill the candy bowl with chocolates at my office I can't stay away

    This office actually has a candy closet of free candy (file drawer), and a chip vending machine. I have never succumbed to either (not once) in the years I have worked for this company. Knowing myself as well as I do, anytime I would get stressed, bored or tired, I would be running to the candy drawer, or the vending machine. Then I would spend the rest of the day thinking, how could I go back without anyone noticing.

    Running / walking today: 6.81; w-t-d: 14.89; m-t-d: 43.24

    Thurs - 7/20/17. 70 treadmill, 20 sauna. m-t-d workouts: 20/20. I felt really good running today. I am beginning to think I do have another marathon in me (slow marathon that is). I need to add a 3rd running day per week, and then scale up. The m-t-d of 43 miles in slightly under 3 weeks, I should be doing that per week in order to get ready. Issue is, I don't want to get injured, and I don't want to give up muscle gain. Everything is a tradeoff.

    Friday - 7/21/17. chest; ab training, 25 sauna. m-t-d workouts: 21/21. Fairly good workout today. After, I went to the rheumatologist for an 8:00 am appointment, and just made it to the last express bus. :) I made it to NYC in no time today, apparently nobody works on Friday's in the summer, and there was zero traffic. Good blood pressure results today, 115/61. Why does an arthritis doctor take blood pressure and pulse is a good question.:confused: Tomorrow I hope to train back, abs. Happy Friday.

    That is awesome. Tremendous consistency.

    I've always wondered why my dental hygienist takes my blood pressure before a cleaning. If I were having anesthesia, I could understand but for a routine cleaning?

    Thank you. I am the king of consistency. :) I am on a steak of 67 days in a row of working out. Every day since 5/16/17.

    I mentioned to someone about why does the doctor take blood pressure reading, when it is not related to what they are doing. She said that some do it as a screening, for people who don't go the doctor, and would otherwise not know they are walking around with high blood pressure. Sounds like a reasonable explanation.

    Running / walking today: 2.01; w-t-d: 2.01; m-t-d: 44.24

    Sat - 7/22/17. back; ab training, 20 minutes dreadmill, 30+15 sauna. m-t-d workouts: 22/22. Good workout today. I had on my new lifting gloves, which when you have arthritis in your fingers, are an important piece of equipment. Especially on back day, all "pull exercises" which requires a strong grip. Even though I am always disappointed when I expect weight loss on the scale, I expect to see it tomorrow (even though calories haven't been low). Today swimsuit was loose, and kept sliding down, and I won't be able to wear it anymore. Which I guess is a good problem to have. Tomorrow I hope to train legs, and maybe run.
