Day 30 – Labor Day

Happy Labor Day! All in all I think I did pretty good today despite all the fantastic food at our BBQ.

Started the day with wife and kids at the Y. Put on my McDavid Level 3 Ankle Brace to stabilize my ankle and did my 5k on the AMT. The brace really helped me out and is quite comfortable, so I was able to complete the workout with no real pain. Kids played in the Y daycare area and the wife tried out the new Sh’Bam, where apparently as she described it “you shake all your assets”.

Signed up for myfitnesspal yesterday to help with calorie counting. Up until now, I’ve haven’t been counting but the more I get into fitness/healthy lifestyle, the more data I like to look at, so I figure I’d track my calories. It’s pretty neat , easy to use and 100% free. I’m using smartphone app for entry on the go. The also have the cool ticker, which track your loss/#togo , which you can now see on the site. It’s eye opening how easily the calories add up.

Ended the day with a 2 miles walk after the BBQ to burn off some delicious brownies. I am feeling really energetic today for some reason, not sure if its because I took the day off or if its the fact that I am so close to my first goal.
