    boy do i suck at doing my other meditations. 

    Today I have my PT appointment and next Thursday I am getting more vaccinations!

    I finished The Wise Man's Fear the other night and now I'm bummed that I don't have another book I'm looking forward to so much. Anyone have any good fiction suggestions? I've read ALL Sanderson, and Rothfuss (except for the slow regard... saving that for my trip.) But don't generally skew towards fantasy. Favorite author is Margaret Atwood.

    Workout:

    Friday night I got more color on my tattoo, so no workouts this weekend. Though our gym was closed on Saturday anyway. Took Sadie to the closer dog park on and the far dog park on Sunday. She loves the far dog park because she gets to swim.

    My arms felt nice and snappy which is good.

    15kg x 3

    25kg x 3

    30kg x 2

    35kg x 5 (all singles)

  6. 7/20

     

    Workout:

    Usual warm up

     

    Power Jerk + Overhead Squat 2+2

    15kg

    20kg

    25kg

    30kg

    33kg 4(2+2)

     

    These felt good, though I don't keep my ribs down as much as I would like. I think I'm super sensitive to it though, so the next time I do power jerks, I'll video it. 

     

    Power Clean Doubles

    15kg

    20kg

    25kg

    30kg

    33kg 4x2

     

    It took all of the strength of mind to not let myself go up to 35 on these. But I still have 6 more weight limit workouts, and I'm going to stick with my plan. These felt good. I kept catching the bar in my throat. It's nice that my elbows are learning to work, but I need my windpipe. 

     

    Front Squat

     

    25kg x 5

    30kg x 3

    35kg x 5x3 (five sets of 3) 

     

    Focused on torso position and keeping as braced and upright throughout the entire movement. 

     

    Clean Pulls

    35kg x 3x3

     

    These felt super light (they are) but I worked on staying over the bar, and then being balanced at the top of the pull. 

     

    Goal 1: Take care of my back by doing more movement throughout the day.

     

    8a - CARs

    10a: cat camel, quad rockbacks, quadreped half down dog, segmented cat camels to isolate t-spine and lumbar. 

    12p: 20min walk with Sadie

    2p: core series 

     

    Goal 2: Track food, hit calorie goals.

    tracked mostly.

    I'm really bad at getting in my other meditations

    No TV in bed on weeknights - reading is OK: read for a while. it was glorious.

    Drink at least 80oz of water: yup!

     

    I had a hard time falling asleep last night. I didn't really eat enough during the day, so I ended up getting a Chi'lantro bowl (rice, chicken, peppers, onions, kimchi, spinach, cabbage, carrot + carrot ginger sauce) and I think it kept me up. I need to make sure that i get most of my calories in before my workouts so I can just have my casein pudding at night on workout nights. I know that works well for me, I just have a hard time with planning when I'm going to eat and then actually going through with it.

    I know!

     

    I remembered this and I just ehm... totally and legally acquired the first book for my kindle device. The sypnosis reminds me a bit of Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer of The Southern Reach Trilogy, which I haven't been able to finish. (haven't found the third book in English, only in Italian).

     

    And now I want to read it again, dammit! I'm 8 books behind on schedule and still have like 50 books to read to finish my reading challenge!

    i wonder where you are totally and legally acquiring these books ;)

    I was actually thinking about this last night/this morning, in regards to my food choices.  I went to the grocery store after work specifically to get junk food.  I ended up with... Stuffed grape leaves (as a dinner side), a pint of Halo Top (a lower calorie one, at that), and some fresh cut pineapple (because pineapple).  Even when I allowed myself to be free with my eating at home, the worst things I ate was a serving and a half of rosemary olive oil popcorn I like to buy now and again, and two bread rolls which were luxury/spoiling-myself items that have lasted over a week now.  And at the end of it all I was still barely 100 calorie over my daily MFP limit.

     

    So yea.  Life.  So weird.

    i've been enjoying sliced mango SO MUCH lately.
