I made it through yesterday and didn’t seem to have the snackies today. Of note, there were no nuts left after the poker game! So, I guess I don’t have to worry about that. BTW – if you are interested in the nut recipe, here is the link. Be forewarned – addictive is a mild term for these things. Pecans are the best.
Gym day! I really look forward to going to the gym and doing these workouts.
I finished the A workouts today (B will finish on Saturday). Four weeks later. This stage had a max of 12 reps for each exercise, so what I would do each workout was to either increase to 12 reps or drop back down to 10 and increase the weight. Each session I would increase either weight or reps on several exercises. So, here is my progress on the A workout. I did this workout 6 times over the last 4 weeks.
|Exercise||Set/rep/weight Week 1||Week 4|
|Bird Dog||3 sets of 10||3 sets of 12 with 5# DBs|
|Forward Ball Roll||3 sets of 10||3 sets of 12|
|Step Ups||3 sets of 10 (each leg) with 15# DBs||3 sets of 10 (each leg) with 20# DBs|
|3-point dumbbell row||3 sets of 10 (each arm) with 15# DB||3 sets of 10 (each arm with 20# DBs|
|Partial Co-contraction Lunge||3 sets of 10 each leg||3 sets of 12 each leg|
|Pushup||3 sets of 10||3 sets of 12|
|Hip-thigh Extension (single-leg bridge)||3 sets of 10 each leg||3 sets of 12 each leg|
|Bent Over Reverse Fly||3 sets of 10 with 10# DBs||3 sets of 10 with 13# DBs|
Pretty pleased with this. The co-contraction lunges are hard and I had burning legs and I never did add any weight. Any kind of split-leg stuff is hard for me. I am ready for the next round of pushups with variation, so that should be fun. Feeling nice and strong with that. Update of workout B after this weekend.
I realized that I hadn’t made coconut flour protein waffles in a while, so that is what I made when I got home.
My lap buddy was back. She was totally sacked out today. I was lifting her up here and she doesn’t even care.
She must be part ragdoll. I love my cat big hairy feet and all.
I wanted crunch, so I had some Nut Thins with it. They are the crunchiest cracker ever!
Work was kind of annoying today. We recently got a new supervisor on one of my accounts, and he actually doesn’t know the account very well, which leads to communication problems.
I needed my break today:
I could have used a shot of liquor in there, but I refrained.
It was a poultry kind of day today. Chicken for lunch, turkey for dinner.
Topped with laughing cow and A1 steak sauce. Or turkey sauce, I suppose.
Took a night out to have some coffee. Yes, I brought some pineapple to have with my latte.
Gotta love my netbook and the free wifi!
I think I am going to totally delete my blog feed and reburn it. I did that once already, but I am totally out of ideas about how to stop the comment feed. Of course, this is only with Google reader and not with other subscription feed readers, so I don’t necessarily want to do that and lose those that aren’t having an issue.
The last resort is moving my blog to a new hosting service, but I *really* don’t want to have to do that. I just don’t have the time to be messing with it like that. Nobody seems to be able to help me, either. I guess I have discovered a brand new internet problem to have. Lucky me!
At least tomorrow is Friday!
