HealthyWage Challenge Day 119

Weight: 157 lbs. I ran another 2 hours today. I felt pretty good when I woke up despite not getting 8 hours of sleep (I’m not sure that barely ever do, but I only got about 6 last night); however, my legs, my knees, and the tops of my feet have been sore ever since I finished my run. My arches started cramping up when I was coming down the home stretch with about 1 mile left to go, and I felt like I was hitting that infamous marathon wall. However, God willing, I would like to run another 2 hours...

HealthyWage Challenge Day 118

Weight: 157.6 lbs. I think I spent my calories today. It also was just a good day in general. God blessed me with creativity today as well. I was thinking in rhymes while running. Sometimes that happens, but sometimes I space out or just think about problems and other stuff. Today’s Exercise: QTY 1 ea. sets of the Anderson Ab workout. You can check out the post from Day 2 if you aren’t familiar with it. 2 hour jog QTY 8 ea. pull-ups Breakfast: A bowl of oats and more cereal with whole milk An iced coffee with cream QTY 2 ea. 12 0z.

HealthyWage Challenge Day 117

Weight: 158 lbs. I went on vacation for a week. I ate a lot of junk food. I continued that trend today; however, I did do some walking today. Now, I am back up to 158 lbs. I have to get strict about this diet so that I can win this bet. Today’s Exercise: QTY 1 ea. sets of the Anderson Ab workout. You can check out the post from Day 2 if you aren’t familiar with it. QTY 6 ea sets of QTY 40 ea. push-ups 4  mile walk Breakfast: A bowl of oats and more cereal with strawberries and milk A glass of milk A large...

HealthyWage Challenge Day 108

Weight: 151.4 lbs. Today was pretty similar to yesterday, but I got home late and didn’t feel like making dinner; so, I ate another bowl of cereal. Another positive, is that I went another day without any sweets. That is a good accomplishment for me. Today’s Exercise: QTY 1 ea. sets of the Anderson Ab workout. You can check out the post from Day 2 if you aren’t familiar with it. QTY 40 ea. push-ups 4  mile jog Breakfast: A bowl of cocoa cheerios cereal with raspberries and milk A glass of milk A cup of unsweetened green tea Water Lunch: Half of a kielbasa...

HealthyWage Challenge Day 107

Weight: 152.6 lbs.

Today’s Exercise: QTY 1 ea. sets of the Anderson Ab workout. You can check out the post from Day 2 if you aren’t familiar with it.

HealthyWage Challenge Day 99

Weight: 152.8 lbs.                     This post is from yesterday. I took an updated picture. The one on the right is new and the one on the left is the last picture update. I’m not sure if I’m in any better shape. Today’s Exercise: QTY 3 ea. sets of the Anderson Ab workout. You can check out the post from Day 2 if you aren’t familiar with it.

HealthyWage Challenge Day 98

Weight: 154.2 lbs. I did some good exercise today, but I drank a lot of sugar as well. Although, I did get a free rental from Redbox because of one soda; so, that was cool. At least I think it was free. They still made me swipe my card (as collateral I guess). I saw a boy walking during his soccer training run with his dad, or his trainer. I think it’s a good reminder of inertia. I felt bad for him because I know it will only be worse as the season progresses if he starts walking now. However, if he...

HealthyWage Challenge Day 97

Weight: 151.6 lbs. I ran 13 miles today and did some push-ups, but I think I also ate most of those calories back because I felt like I earned it. Anyway, I only have to do this challenge for about 2 more months, and I only have to lose 3 more pounds to win. I’m just logging the process in case anybody wants to follow my progress as a guide. It might not be for anybody. I don’t like to really like to watch what I eat; so, exercise is my main strategy. Today’s Exercise: 13 mile jog QTY 8 ea. leg –...

HealthyWage Challenge Day 95

Weight: 154 lbs. Junk food city today. One of these days (and then several days after that) I will have to sacrifice this junk food so that I can loose the last 5 or 6 pounds in this challenge. That made me kind of want to watch the Big Lebowski because I thought of that Sam Elliot saying something like “It’s funny how things have a way of playing their selves out”. Today’s Exercise: 4 mile jog QTY 8 ea. leg – leg stabilization exercises. (I’m working to build a discipline of doing these more. My one foot has pain in the...

HealthyWage Challenge Day 94

Weight: 151.8 lbs. Here’s a picture of the stuff on which I am hooked. I usually get one of this flavor and one of the Revel Berry. I just imagine a commercial with a guy taking a sip and saying, “It’s enlightening!…and…minty.” Honestly though, it does have a pretty good taste, and by power of self fulfilling prophecy (I guess), I usually do feel like my mind is a little more fluent. I even came up with this little reggae melody after drinking this stuff. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Kurtis Lunz (@kurtislunz)      ...
