That's Just Harry


#704

So to sum up the last few days I’ve been lifting, swimming and running. Really getting into the running and swimming. For the first time in a long time actually decided to eat a specific way and see just how fit I can get at 63. Also, I want to make the swim/run when I get back to the Philippines. Eating all my carbs in the morning before I work out. Today, breakfast: 1/4 cup grits, 1/4 cup oatmeal, 3 eggs, swim 1500m. Lunch: 8oz rib eye w/stir fried bok choy, cauliflower and broccoli. After noon run 1.5 mile. Dinner: 8oz Salmon w/basil butter, green beans, spinach salad w/oil % vinegar. Weight in at 219. Had to break out some old shorts.

this will be interesting to follow. I have often thought as I approach 60 what would be possible fit wise. All carbs in the morning sounds smart…probably why I never tried it…Adequate stuff as always, Harry !!


#706

I’ve found oatmeal and grits pack on the weight, but I’m not as active as you. I aim for under 100 carbs/day. Helps keep weight in check.


#707

I’m only doing a half a cup combined and only on a swim run day. Getting ready to start stretching out my distances so figure I’ll need them.


#708

Yesterday
Bench, Smith Incline bench, cable xover, cgb, over tri rope ext
This morning
An estimated 1600+m swim or 1 mile. Time to start stretching the distance out.

Forgot to post. For any of you rasslin’ fans. Glenn Jacobs or Kane, Just got himself elected up the road as mayor of Knox County TN.

I hope I’m as strong as you when I reach your age, inspirational journal.

Kane should get some respect at council meetings.
