Ship’s Log–February 19th


I spent four hours in my car today, driving back and forth across the width of my state for work. In between, I had little time for exercise, though I managed to pace my way through 10,000 steps while working and also squeezed in the Ab Challenge work for the day.

My work day forced my eating to be off schedule too, as I had to sit down to dinner about 4 hours earlier than I do on nights when I hit the mats. I came home from work a good 6 hours after that early dinner quite peckish and allowed myself another small meal of leftovers. I didn’t really need those calories, but it’s better than  what I really wanted: large plate of leftovers and a beer.
