Draglist's Journal, 19 Apr 15

Good Sunday morning. All is right with the world as I did lose 3.6 pounds during a HIIT workout. Yesterday’s .6 pound workout loss was weird! Woke at 205.2, which was lower than yesterday by a pound. Forgot to do my coconut oil in coffee, but did do a concoction of filtered water, cinnamon, lemon juice, turmeric, black pepper, garlic, and parsley. Heated it up to body temperature and drank a good pint of it. Not really something you do for taste! : ) Did my 1000 calorie HIIT treadmill. Had a hard time keeping my heart rate on target as I was well rested. Usually no problem hitting or exceeding targets when I’m tired and working out during weeknight evenings. Got a nice 202.8 weigh in for my efforts. Need to average 1316 calories a day for the rest of the month to make my 1972 per day calorie average target for April (still paying for Easter indulgence). So I am going to alternate 1000 calorie and 1632 calorie days until the end of the month. That will be easy to do. Should see the 190s again by next weekend or even earlier.

I have to ask, why did you drink this strange brew?

Hi, Instantcrazy. First, we need to get water into us as soon as we wake up. That's the base. The juice of half a lemon is for astringent properties, the cinnamon is thermogenic (heats you up and helps burn fat), the turmeric has great healing properties (Google that), the black pepper helps to activate the turmeric (and is itself thermogenic), garlic has healing properties (Google), and parsley helps to rid extra stored water. I added a teaspoon of raw honey yesterday, but felt that likely broke my fast too soon, so I dropped it.

All true. But what a dose that must have been :) Good job on the drop!!

Ended up eating a little more at 1871 calories and hitting all my macros. Will go light again tomorrow at about 1000 calories or so.

Nicely done! I do cinnamon honey and lemon but I can't get the cinnamon to mix, it just stays in a big lump. Any tips?

I warm the water a bit in the microwave. That might do it...

Thanks for the concoction recipe, Bill. :)

Hi Draglist, i want to explain about the HR-thingy: if your body is tired it already has an average elevated HR. Work outs you do while tired are less effective then the work out you did while rested. While rested your heart has no trouble managing the exercise and tends to drop even during the exercise! That is why we need rest-days :) because you burned way more joules this time, compared to the other ones you do while tired... No workout machine will show you the difference.

You're welcome, Deb! Just did another one. Squirted a few drops of Crystal Light to it today and it made it very easy to drink. Thanks, Maud. Understood on the elevated HR. I figured that, but added it as a note of interest. Thanks, Pam. Sadly, it went on quicker! LOL.
