    Maigs Gives Up

    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

    DaemonCorax has a passenger (incubating pt 3.)

    I've never heard this before but that is the stupidest reasoning I can imagine. I join you in giving the middle finger to those people

    Wednesday Exercise - 9Round day. It was a good workout as always. I definitely felt yesterdays core workout at times. Food - On point again. Normal breakfast, leftovers for lunch, the other half of the protein cookie fro this weekend before my workout, and another big salad for dinner after.

    Tuesday Exercise - I did a core workout today. I tried a different Pinterest routine and this one went pretty well. Still tweaking it but it seemed like a better fit for me than the last one. I read @Kestrel Grey's comment between the two rounds and on the second plank pushed my shoulder blades together and down and it felt more like I think a plank should feel Food - Another solid day. Normal breakfast, leftovers for lunch, potpie casserole for dinner. Calories were spot on goal

    Ooh, I just tried that and it helped a lot! Thanks! I can't plank any longer that way, but it's easier on my shoulders and feels more like it's working my abs instead. I had a trainer a few years ago say I should try to push up (as in towards the sky) with my shoulder blades which now that I think about it I was doing in a way that kinda hunched my shoulders forward/down. So my wrist: When I first started trying to go to the gym (6ish years ago) my right wrist started bothering me in certain positions, pushups being one of them. I actually went to the doctor and because there wasn't an "incident" that started the pain she just chalked it up to when I broke it when I was 8. It was really minor break and I only had a cast for like 3 weeks and didn't bother me for almost 20 years but whatever. The pain has come and gone over the last few years. It doesn't bother me usually but punching things has aggravated it a bit. It's getting better so I think it just needs strengthened but I'm avoiding pushup positions and other things that aggravate it until it stops hurting

    Fonzico's 12 Week Challenge: Part One of Three

    Sorry you're dealing with the struggle bus Fonz. It's a crappy ride and can be so hard to get off and back on track.
