snack: juicy Colorado peach
dinner: zucchini and pesto and tomato
I made 3 batches of pesto and snacked a lot on the ingredients while making it. So I ate quite a lot today. But that's okay, I don't want to get too skinny. It took two hours to make the pesto. But I was listening to Prairie Home Companion and I made 12 containers, so that's 12 easy meals, so a worthwhile investment of my time.
exercise: jog 3 miles. I tried out my heart monitor and this time it worked. First I checked my resting pulse while sitting on the couch: 46! It still astounds me because before I went vegan it was 70. Then when I jogged, it got up to 152 after about 5 minutes and didn't vary much around that, even going up the hill at the end. I think I must just vary my speed to get a comfortable breathing rate. According to this website, my target heart rate should be between 120 and 155 if I'm in really good shape and doing vigorous exercise. I wouldn't say that was vigorous. I think my heart just beats fast when I exercise. I have a heart murmur (mitral valve prolapse) so maybe my blood flow is not as efficient. But then you'd think my resting rate would be faster too. I wonder why the target heart rate goes down as you age.
