Today was a treadmill day. The storm had passed and by noon, the clouds were completely gone and everything was clear, blue, and bright. It was also bitterly cold. Okay, that's a bit of exaggeration. By the late afternoon, it was almost pleasant outside, but still too cold for me. So of course that means the treadmill. 

Since I've been having so much trouble with my tight calf muscles, I've decided not to focus on speed. I kept it at a nice and easy 1.5 mph, though I did up it to 2 for a bit. Instead of worrying about speed, I focused on the incline. I had it up to 5.0 before I had to stop for the laundry--realizing in the process that I once again failed to turn the stupid washer on. So I started the clothes AGAIN and went back to the treadmill. 

This time, I gradually upped the speed and decreased the incline, until I had it set to 1.5 and 3.0 for the speed. I managed to keep that up for about five minutes before my body betrayed me and decided right that second absolutely needed to be a bathroom break.

Time: 35:00
Distance: 1.12

Despite the relatively short distance in that span of time, I had a really good workout. I was drenched in sweat by the time I finished. 

My eating habits are evolving, as usual. Lately I've basically been surviving off of bacon and eggs. You may be wondering how that it is even possible, but bacon and eggs are basically my favorite breakfast food, especially when the bacon is just shy of crispy and the yolks are good and runny. I use pork rinds to replace hashbrowns, and I'm really quite pleased. Of course, the first time I did this diet, I ate tuna fish every day for like 3 months and now I can't really stand the stuff.
