Ship’s Log–December 1st


I spent this past holiday long weekend up on Cape Cod. I didn’t log my food. I ate a mix of healthy options and garbage treats. I didn’t work out much, mainly because it was freezing cold when it wasn’t driving rain or snowing, making running, my only option, too unpleasant to face. I arrived back home bloated and achy. This week will be all about the detox and shedding that extra water I’m now retaining. There’s going to be a lot of green, a lot of fruit, and a lot of working to sweat it out.

This evening my body let me know exactly how unhappy it is with me. During the no-gi class, my legs were cramping like nothing I’ve ever experienced. My calf tapped me out all by itself at one point as it tried to clinch down to the size of a walnut. That’s what I get for going five days without eating so much as one banana. I would have added one in today, but the ones I was able to buy at the market this morning were bright green and hardly appealing as a snack. Hopefully they will be more edible tomorrow so I can load up on the potassium ahead of jujitsu class.
