I kid, of course, but if you’ve ever been to a Great Big Sea concert then you know.  You pay for a seat, but you really aren’t allowed to use it much (which is just as well, as the seats in the Michigan theater are wicked narrow compared to me arse).  You are up and bouncing the entire time… I keep thinking it might be fun to wear my heart rate monitor to one of their shows… just to see… it’s a goodly burn!  Regardless, show tonight.  I will absolutely be there.


I did get some actual exercise today.  as indicated yesterday, I went for a run… and it really did hurt.  As you can see from the chart above, it was so so… the red peaks represent speed sessions… the valleys can be considered the sort of slow run/fast shamble that fat guys and oldsters are known for… but the knee was pretty pain-free, so good.  Plus I get an actual fake calorie number… the Garmin says I burned 540 calories… I feel good about those.

No food report today as it’s early, and I’ll be out tonight.  I did go for a red-green smoothie for breakfast:

  • 1 medium beet
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/4″ ginger
  • 1 fuji apple
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 1 cup ice

Blend, blend, blend!  Very red.  Not bad tasting… might add some almond milk next time for protein… and double the ginger.  Filling and rings in well under 200 calories.  Lunch was just a banana and a leftover piece of chicken… probably a sandwich or salad for dinner… not sure yet.
