    Even better!

    Nice job with the chin ups. I do mine in reverse order where I do the hardest sets first and then they get lighter as I go--I just started doing chin ups as one of my main exercises a week or two ago (replacing pull ups) and chin ups are a lot harder for me, I was surprised.

    I will give that a try. For me it is the opposite, pull ups are much harder. I think they are actually a better exercise.

    Day #23 - Minimal Food buy (5/06/19-7/04/19) - 60 day goal

    Weds - 5/29/19. 60 minutes elliptical; 15 minutes treadmill. Sauna: 20 min. m-t-d workouts: 25/29. Originally for my no buy year, I was not supposed to buy vitamins & supplements. I wanted to run out of everything, and start over. But I changed that, and am including vitamins and supplements as food. It started when I bought probiotics for my gastro problem (which I don't think did anything). Later I bought BCAA's, and yesterday I bought glutamine. That is the extent of my supplements, except that I do take vitamins & fish oil also. If I can accumulate about 17,000 steps a day through Friday, I can get average up to 15K again. Today should be easy, I already have 11K. I tried for 16K steps yesterday, but I had to stop walking because they had tornado warnings, which is pretty unusual for this area. There were no actual tornadoes, at least in the immediate area. Tomorrow I hope to do back training.

    Thurs - 5/30/19. back training; 6 minutes treadmill (warm up before lifting). Sauna: 20 min. m-t-d workouts: 26/30. Today I hope to accumulate 17K+ steps, which would bring average to above 15K. Tomorrow - leg training. It is great when the holiday is on a Monday, tomorrow is already Friday. :claphigh:

    Day #119 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)
    Day #25 - Minimal Food buy (5/06/19-7/04/19) - 60 day goal

    Friday - 5/31/19. leg; ab training; 7 minutes treadmill (warm up before lifting). Sauna: 20 min. m-t-d workouts: 27/31. These streaks might seem lame (they do at least to me), but they work. If I wasn't keeping track of the steps, there is no way I would have forced myself to walk 17K steps yesterday to put me back over 15K (average for 186 days). While May was a good month both nutritionally and for fitness, I hope to improve upon that in June. One thing I know about myself, is that I don't really like to eat, but I like to eat a lot (quantity). I rarely crave any type of food. But if there is a bag of potato chips open for example, I feel compelled to eat the whole bag in one sitting.:crazy: With this self awareness, I can be in the food store, and know what I can and cannot buy, since I know if I will eat the whole bag or box at one time. Klondike bars are a good example, not really that many calories at roughly 250 calories each, and they taste really good, but they come in boxes of six. When you eat all 6 at one time, that is 1,500 calories, therefore I know I can't buy them (I know that from much past experience). This knowledge is key as to why I never gained back the weight I lost over 10 years ago.

    I am scheduled to run in a 5 mile race in Central Park on Sunday. This time I am not bailing out. It is sponsored by Nutella :drool:, maybe there will samples. :) I doubt I can run the whole race in my present condition (bone spur on right heel), but I am curious how it will go, and how much pain I will be in (after the race). Tomorrow I hope to do chest training.

    Tues - 6/04/19. rest day. m-t-d workouts: 3/4. I have been lax on intermittent fasting, having coffee with milk & splenda 2 or 3 times during the day. No more, starting yesterday, just black coffee. I drink black coffee at home, but when I am at work or out, I always opt for milk or half & half and artificial sweetener. If I am doing 99% of the effort, why not go for 100%. Also regarding nutrition, I have been eating 2 baked potatoes daily. White potatoes have a bad reputation of spiking glucose levels. I read by accident, then saw on some youtube video's, that if you bake the potato, then refrigerate it, it has something called "resistant starch". Some of it doesn't get digested, and works like fermented food, and is good for the bacteria in your gut. Even forgetting that, potatoes are a good prebiotic, and are full of vitamins and minerals (higher in potassium than bananas). Starting yesterday, I bake the potato in the morning, then throw it into the refrigerator. While I will admit that a baked potato tastes better hot, it still tastes pretty good cold (imho). A more thorough explanation is in the youtube video below.

    Thurs - 6/06/19. back training. m-t-d workouts: 5/6. Excellent workout this morning. Probably no fasting today. Intermittent fasting stretch was long yesterday, from about 9:00 pm the prior night, to about 7:30 pm yesterday. Nothing but black coffee. I am not a fan of black coffee, milk and artificial sweeteners do wonders for the taste of coffee.

    Friday - 6/07/19. leg training. m-t-d workouts: 6/7. Streamlined leg training, by reducing exercises to 6. Squats, Leg press, Hack slide, Glute machine, Prone leg curl, and Bench hip raise. Today was the first time I did the last exercise. Basically, your elbows are on a bench, you have a barbell on your waist, and lower and raise yourself. It was more difficult then it looked, I used a 50 lb fixed weight barbell. Yesterday I started eliminating wheat from my diet, to see if it has a positive effect. I still have gastro problems, hoping this will be a solution. If that doesn't work, next I will try eliminating dairy. I am going to try at least 30 days of no wheat. It is not as easy as you would think, since wheat is in many foods you wouldn't never expect, like the candy Twizzlers.:confused: Unfortunately for me, today is National Donut Day, and there will be no donuts for me.

    Day #35 - Minimal Food buy (5/06/19-7/04/19) - 60 day goal

    Sun - 6/09/19. back / ab training; 18 minutes treadmill (before lifting); 18 minutes treadmill (after lifting). Sauna: 20 / cold shower / 15. m-t-d workouts: 8/9.

    Mon - 6/10/19. shoulders / triceps / ab training; 25 minutes treadmill (before lifting); 15 minutes treadmill (after lifting). Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 9/10. Changed my elimination diet. I was planning to stop having wheat for a month. But instead decided to first stop having artificial sweeteners for a month. I didn't want to both at the same time, since I wouldn't know if things changed, which one was causing the change. I decided on artifical sweeteners, since I was thinking that I started drinking diet soda a few months ago, and that is when the problem developed. To be honest, I think I have IBS (Irittable bowel syndrome), but it can't hurt to do to see what helps alleviate the problem, and what foods make it worse. I do know that I can't have the baked pototoes that I refrigerated, and ate cold, for the benefit of the resistant starch that I read about (I wrote about that a few days ago). Things got remakably worse after a few days doing that. People who have psoriatic arthritis, have 3 times the chance of getting IBS then the general population. Both are autoimume diseases. 3x sounds like a lot, but if 1 in 100 gets IBS, then for someone with psoriatic arthritis it would be 3 in 100, still pretty low odds.

    Weds - 6/12/19. rest day. m-t-d workouts: 10/12. I wrote in someones journal yesterday about starting a youtube channel. I have thought about doing that myself, about the "no buy" year. But doing some research on youtube, "no buy" is not a good segment. The most watched one has only 30K or less subscribers, and most have way less than 1K. Also, it is hard to get advertisers when the theme of the podcast is to not buy anything.:lol:

    Thurs - 6/13/19. back training. Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 11/13. I am short about 45K steps, to get to a 15K average for the step goal. Today is raining, and most likely will be another low step day. I have been doing chin ups, today I added pull ups. Pull ups are harder for me, since I have joint damage in my fingers, but I think they are a slightly better exercise than chin ups. Tomorrow - leg day.

    Friday - 6/14/19. leg training. Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 12/14. All this week, I have been doing a strict version of intermittent fasting, just black coffee, no food from about 8:30 pm until about 7:30 pm the next day. I still have not gotten used to black coffee. Milk or cream and sugar or artificial sweetener is a big improvement for coffee (imho). But like I said, why do 99% of the effort, when you can do 100%. I said at the beginning of the month that I want to consume 3K or less calories a day in June. Of course I am over, but I hope to fast the entire day today until tomorrow morning. Even if I fast, I will still be over 3K a day average for the 14 days so far this month, and will need to fast another day later in the month (or cut down on calories the balance of the month). Everyday at the gym, I try for an improvement over the last time, even if only for one extra rep, or added weight for even just one exercise. That way, over the long term, you are bound to get stronger. TGIF.

    Sat - 6/15/19. chest; abs. Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 13/15. Workout has not happened yet. I had a bunch of things I needed to get done today. But I anticipate it will happen. I will revise tomorrow if things change. I did fast yesterday, I had wanted to fast until this morning, but I was up at 12:00 am, and ate the below 650 calories at that time. I was up at 12:00 am, because I had a black coffee at Starbucks after work to quench my appetite, in addition to the 2 cups of black coffee I had at work during the day. The fast was roughly 28 hours (just black coffee). Now I am slightly above a 3K average for the first 14 days of the month. Fasting did make my memory better. A few weeks ago, I received in the mail a replacement credit card for a card that expired, and didn't remember what I did with it. Last night, it came to me where I put it, and it was there.

    Mon - 6/17/19. 60 elliptical; 15 treadmill. Sauna: 20 min. m-t-d workouts: 15/17. I am cautiously optimistic that since I cut out the artificial sweeteners, it is helping my gastro problems. I pretty much know dairy causes problems, and avoid it already (except cheese). Tomorrow - shoulders / triceps.
