Gun Show

It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for! You will get an exclusive peak at my 5 week Gun Show. Today is Day One of Week Six. The photo is from Day 7 Week 4.

Float like a dragonfly, sting like a diaper rash

I see some progress, and the exciting thing is that I think I’ve only ever done about six weeks at any given time of an exercise regimen. Considering this is only half-way through, I have a lot more work to do, and I hope to see a very big change. Very exciting stuff. My resting heart rate is still 66. Just for fun, I decided to take my ‘maximum’ heart rate, but I don’t know that it means anything. So at the peak intensity of my workout, my heart gets up to 260 bpm. Ouch.

Since this is supposed to be a food blog, I will throw you a bone.

African Sweet Potato and Peanut Soup

1 big can of sweet potatoes

1 regular can diced tomatoes, no need to drain

1 onion

2 cloves garlic

1 tsp minced ginger root


2 chicken bouillon cubes

Saute the onions in vegetable oil until nice and browned; they said about ten minutes. Then add all the other ingredients and bring to a boil. You’ll need to add water for the bouillon cubes. Simmer for thirty minutes and puree the soup in a processor. Add 2 T smooth peanut butter right before serving. We ate it with cornbread….oh em gee. My friend made the cornbread using half corn muffin mix half yellow cake. And I wonder why I can’t get rid of the belly fat.

  1. Max heart rate is a handy number to have to determine your various workout zones. The nice thing is the zones always stay the same as you get older. Your max hr declines over the years. For running I’m usually in the mid 60’s for a long training run. Shorter faster runs are in the moderate zone, around 75 % of max. Racing a marathon I’m in the low 80’s and a 10K hovering around 90%.
