||CleanDay 415: Sprinting While Sore||Shoulder kept me up last night, and for the last few days has been doing more of a number on my morale than I’d care to admit — weight’s ticked up a notch; nothing terrible but higher than I’d like. The key right now is not to lean into feeling||2/20/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 414: Holiday Monday; Sore||Late post today because I slept in a bit for a holiday Monday here in Ontario. What I was hoping was a temporarily sore shoulder/neck thing has turned into a pretty acutely sore shoulder/neck thing. Shoulder and neck have been a problem since a bike ac.||2/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 413: Stuffed with Sushi||Ooof. After a good run last week I failed the Sprint with sushi last night. It’s the first time I’ve been officially over on calories since I started the month. Still, I reconnected with an old friend, and made a new one (and even ran into another||2/18/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 412: Weird Dinner Plans||Still sprinting along — a better workout than I usually get on Saturdays this morning. The big challenge today will be meeting friends for dinner (no problem) at 8 p.m. (problem). They’re in town for a Scrabble tournament, which ends at 7:30,||2/17/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 411: Back on my feet; work adjustments||Back on track! A weird week for the Sprint, but it continues. Good snack-resistance last night, good exercise this morning. My wife’s working a new job, which is great financially, but it’s weird-hour shiftwork,||2/16/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 410: Dark Days for the Sprint||I think my body is rebelling, or something. Wild insomnia last night, for a couple hours, so I’m wiped this morning — half-assed exercise, some snacking last night. Insomnia is a pain in the neck. It does not good, doesn’t solve problems,||2/15/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 409: Get back on it!||WEIRD morning — I had a board meeting last night but had to make dinner for tonight. But for the morning so my wife can pack her dinner to take to work for a late shift. I got in late-ish yesterday evening and started something in the slow cooker over||2/14/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 408: Sprinting is Hard!||I am COMMITTED TO THE SPRINT. That being said, a couple of weird days and I really need to keep this from fraying at the edges. Dipping into the cashew butter I made last night. Distracted exercise this morning. The sprint is working! Sustaining it,||2/13/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 407: Weird Day||February Sprint continues with kind of a weird day — I had to return this giant-ass minivan this morning, and the downtown rental lot is TINY, so I thought I’d return it first thing this morning. But the ploughs went by after a day of freezing rain||2/12/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 406: Sprint Sundays||My second Sunday of the February Sprint. Yesterday went well. Sunday is a rest day — no exercise, no checklist — so it’s much more important to plan food and stick to that plan. I don’t think it’ll be super difficult. We rented a car for the w||2/11/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
