Happy new year! Today is the first day of my month of sugar and grain free. We ended up staying at the lake an extra day, so I had to make due with what was there this morning, but nothing too out of the ordinary. Rode the trainer when I got home . . . wow, it has been a while since I have done anything and it whipped me. I attached my HR monitor to my aero bars, but realized it wasn’t picking up consistently so I took it off in my 1st interval and wore it on my wrist. I turned it off during the cool-down. I tried to keep my HR up into zone 3 for most of the work, and it hung around in the mid-upper 150s, then came down into the 120s during the rest. I maxed out at 162.
I didn’t take my stats this morning since I wasn’t home, so I will do that in the morning. I am super puffy. If I had to guess I would say that I have put on around 10 lbs since the marathon . . . but a lot of that is water and will hopefully go away this week.
I originally wasn’t planning on focusing on ketosis or fat adaptation during this month, but the more I got into Wheat Belly the more I think it may be something I work toward sooner than later. We will see how these next few weeks go.
