Day 9: Combining workouts

Well, this is Day 9, and I'm doing pretty well overall. As I mentioned yesterday, I lost 11 pounds in the first week, and I'm feeling pretty good overall.

The biggest two things today have been: first the fact that I've been home all day, almost like a weekend day, so my schedule's been off a bit, and I will be again tomorrow (two vacation days for the NCAA Basketball Tournament!); and second, today is the first day I combined weight training and cardio.

That wasn't actually in the plans, with my original idea just to do a regular weight workout. But, after I was done I was feeling pretty good, and the stationary bike at the gym was open, so why not?

The eating, as you'll see, has been a little different, with my calorie count up a little and my fat content up a lot. That's because it's St. Patrick's Day! That means corn-beef brisket, and this year the story didn't have any of the good, higher-quality ones, so the ones we got were a little on the high-fat side. Well, even the better ones are high in fat, but these were really high!

Otherwise, it's been a decent day for eating.
