Uh Oh....Not Exactly the Day I Had Planned...

Well folks, I was a bad boy today.

No, I didn't blow the diet. In fact, I did quite well on eating. But I didn't do the scheduled weight training. And I didn't do any cardio in its place.

See, the Virginia Cavaliers were playing tonight in the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament. They were playing at 7:10 p.m. I got home at 7:08 p.m., and the gym was closed by the time the game was over.

So no exercise, although I did get a bit of a workout during the game -- lots of pacing the floor, a few spikes in the old heart rate, and I never sat down once. Well, other than at half-time. Funny thing, I was never like this before I coached basketball. If any of my old players, or their parents, are reading this they can tell you I almost never sat during those games -- I just paced the sideline, back and forth, back and forth, occasionally giving a little leap into the air, maybe getting a little animated here and there. 

And while it's been three years since I coached (other than that alumni game a couple of months ago), I still get really, really into the games I watch on television now, particularly if one of my favorite teams is playing. The Cavs are my all-time favorite college team, so I had to stay and watch them.

Anyway, so no workout today.

But I did stay on the eating plan, so here's my food for the day.
