Week 2 Day 5
Power - I gymmed after work and grocery shopping. I really only needed to finish up squats and then deload on deadlift and bench. I decided to finish it up witha superset of knee pushups and planks. Spreadsheet updated. And now I'm ready for cycle III. I was comparing my lifts so far this time around with my numbers from 5/3/1 from last year. For some reason I never finished cycle III. So far, my squats are 20# ahead of what I did last time, bench is 5# ahead. OHP is about the same and I've taken a 25# hit on DL's. I am looking forward to seeing some gains this time around.
Grace - Nothing scheduled.
Wisdom - I finished off my pizza for dinner. I have stopped putting much effort into logging food so I can't really recall much else. I did get the bare minimum of 4 freggies in and I'm guessing I had 1 sweet.
Freggies - 4
Sweets - 1
Wonder - I realized I had the pattern wrong on the scarf I was making and I had to rip out almost the entire thing. I was determined to catch back up and use up all the yarn gathered in a pile at my feet. I didn't quite make it on Friday but got caught up by Saturday. It looks a ton better.
Week 2 Day 6
Power - Nothing scheduled
Grace - It was hammer day. It was hot and I had forgotten about a party at the neighbors. I pushed this to Sunday
Wisdom - I ate mostly sensibly. We grilled at the neighbors. There were no veggies in sight so rather than have veggies with my dinner, I just grabbed a second burger. When I got home that night I was 1 freggy short of my goal so I had some berries.... covered in chocolate ganache, with a side of ice cream.
Freggies - 4
Sweets - 1
Wonder - I wasn't particularly looking forward to the party and it was hot. It turned out to be not that bad. We had a deadline to leave my 10 since Qbert had to be home and ready for an early morning pick up for his Boundary Waters trip. So I spent only 3 hours at the party, which turned out to be just about right.
Week 2 Day 7
Power - Nothing planned
Grace - It was supposed to be the coolest day of the week but it was turning out to be warmer than forecasted. I slept in until 10am so I figured if I was going to get a my run in I needed to get my arse moving. The humidity was 75% so I wasn't looking forward to it. I did it anyway. It was scheduled as a 'long' run for 2 miles. I ran intervals for the first mile and did decently but then I started skipping some running intervals and shortly didn't have the energy to run at all. I walked most of the 2nd mile. I'm not sure if I pushed myself too much for the first mile, not leaving enough in the tank for the length of the run. As it was, I barely had the energy to walk up the hill to get home. By the time I finally got home, I was hyperventilating and overheated. Luckily LS took care of me and since the kids weren't home I was able to collapse on the floor and strip down and lay in front of the fan. I was pretty much wrecked the rest of the day and didn't have any energy.
Wisdom - I was famished after my run and I made myself a large breakfast with sausages, bacon, eggs, banana, and 2 pieces of toast. It was fantabulous. I didn't eat much except for some fruit for the rest of the day until dinner. LS made me a great dinner with salad, carrots, potatoes, and bacon wrapped chicken legs. He finished it off with some store bought cheesecake.
Freggies - 5
Sweets - 1
Wonder - Since I was wrecked I didn't even have the energy to crochet. That meant holding up my hands. I did manage to run a remote and looked for some movies to flag for watching. Instead of watching a movie though LS and I took a nap. He set an alarm for an hour (since he had to cook dinner) but then I slept another hour an a half.. and could have stayed sleeping. I did watch Hacksaw Ridge after dinner and then went to bed early.
Qbert is now gone galavanting in Boundary Waters on a canoe. My anxiety is extreme at the moment and ahve to get past all these bad thoughts before I can fall asleep. I also learned that they are letting each pair of boys go off on their own and return to camp at a designated time. So I've calculated in my head a certain time that I would expect a phone call if Qberts canoe doesn't make it back in time... Hopefully I can sleep once that time passes and I get no phone calls.
