    Maigs Gives Up

    Tuesday Exercise - I had intended to do a core workout while dinner cooked but as you'll see below I didn't end up cooking. I can easily make this up Friday though so no points lost yet Food - Fail. I don't regret the food but it wasn't on plan. I had my normal breakfast and leftovers for lunch. I planned to make Peanut Stew for dinner but Hubs talked me into going out to eat before the concert. I did pick sushi over the burger place since it's probably healthier. But then I also let him talk me into a third roll (in addition to the three for him) which neither of us ended up liking much. THEN we had 45 minutes until the concert started two blocks away so we ordered a dessert to waste some time. It was delicious but I was probably WAY over my calorie goal by that point The concert was awesome!! Both bands were great and had so much energy. Turns out one of my coworkers was there too and while I didn't see him we were talking about it and other recent concerts this morning and he was surprised to learn I'm such a hard rock fan Tonight is game night so no workout again but I think I figured out how to add in a second lifting day and Hubs is okay with giving it a try so I think I'll give it a shot next week. I should foam roll my quads tonight though, they're pretty tight today

    I ate too much sushi and my throat is raw but I finally got to see Disturbed in concert! And Three Days Grace. But Disturbed!!

    Yup, those "ping" injuries are why I don't do cleans. I tweaked my shoulder doing them a while back. My OHP is super weak, I'm just doing 15lbs dumbbells (x2) and struggling by the end.

    I've been "lifting" on and off for about 6 years now (mostly off obviously) so I'm fairly confident on most lifts. I'm the least so on deadlifts but fairly sure it's not bad enough (or heavy enough) for injury. I want to record a lift some time but have to either figure out how or drag Hubs with me The soreness was along the sides of my back (lats maybe?) and is already gone. It was not bad at all, I'm just paranoid because of too many horror stories combined with it being the lift I'm less confident on my form about

    Monday Exercise - Another great 9Round workout. Not much to say that I haven't already. I'm really enjoying kicking things Food - Right on track. I had my normal breakfast and leftovers for lunch. After work I was feeling a bit shakey so I stopped at the convenience shop to buy a protein bar before hitting the gym. Dinner was a salad and some sweet potato fries

    I'm also only cautiously optimistic because I've had success before only to have it peter out pretty quickly. This does seem to be the easiest workout plan for me to stick to even though it's more intense than I've done in the past I definitely won't be ramping up this week since we have a concert tomorrow which would be the day I add in the second lifting session (moving the core workout to Thurs and/or alternating Fri). If I go in next week it'll be more recon to see if after dinner is a good time or not

    Week 2 wrap-up Exercise - 100% I did 9Rounds three times, core work once, and lifting once. Like I said above, I would like to try to add another lifting day but I have to figure how to fit it in my schedule, preferably at a time when the free gym is usually empty Food - 100% I did really well again this week and was within my goal range every day I feel like my goals must have been set too low if I'm nailing them 100% but both are quite a bit above what I was doing before. I'm just super motivated right now. Hopefully I actually found a workout system that I will continue to love that I can really stick with long term, even when the motivation wears off

    Sunday Exercise - rest day Food - Mostly good. Normal breakfast, leftovers for lunch and a salad for dinner. Then I ate two of Hubs lemon Oreos even though I don't like oreos.Was within calories goal but could have done without the cookies and had more real food instead Last night I had problems sleeping because my brain wouldn't turn off so I was trying to figure out how to work a second heavy lifting day into my schedule. Still haven't quite figured it out but I think I do want to try and make it work. It would be easier without a job...

    I can only remember eating it at Cracker Barrel and the way Mom makes it that we stole. At Cracker Barrel I usually ignored the gravy because it's not very good (though they're biscuits are like crack!)

    Lol. Thanks! I have fun finding them On that note, every time I deadlift. I'm pretty sure it's appropriate soreness but have heard too many horror stories to now worry

    Really? They haven't made it up north yet? We have your poutine It is a very 'murican thing and normally I'm just so-so on it because it uses a sausage gravy which I didn't even like when I ate meat. But there's a really good veggie sausage called Gimme Lean (Lifelite brand) that even sausage loving Hubs says is better that real sausage gravy

    Saturday Exercise - Went to the free gym and lifted some heavy weights. I'm pretty happy with the selection exercises I have now. Squat, bench press, deadlift, lat pulldown, ohp, RDL, bicep curls, pushups, and tricep dip (I think that's everything....). Now to hit those consistently so I can make some serious gains, I'm starting pretty low so lots of room for easy gains Food - Did well again. Hubs made biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Lunch was leftovers and dinner was a large salad.

    Friday I didn't end up going to bed early last night, but I got some good domestic rangering in which makes me feel calmer so I felt much better by the time I went to bed. Exercise - 9Round workout. Barely apparently. We got some "nasty" weather that IMO wasn't nearly as bad as everyone made it out to be but it was icy and the gym closed at 6ish, I got there around 5:30. It was a good workout and relatively quiet. I tried to keep in mind "packing my shoulders" but only 1 of the 3 times I planked were static ones. The other two involved moving (slamming a pad in front of me and moving a dumbbell around while planking) Food - Good day again. I had my normal breakfast. I really wasn't feeling the lunch I brought with me and ended up going out for a smoothie instead. Then I made chipotle noodles for dinner and ended up perfectly within my calorie goal.

    That helps a lot, thanks! I'll keep all this in mind during planks and deadlifts

    Thursday Exercise - Rest day Food - High end of but within my calorie goal. Normal breakfast and leftovers for lunch and dinner. I'm a bit grouchy today for no good reason but even though my subconscious wants to eat my grouchiness away, I know that doesn't actually work. I'm gonna do some domestic rangering and go to bed early tonight instead
