Plank: forgot UGH why are new habits so hard. I'm going to double two sets of side planks tonight before I go to the gym for light treadmill hill work

 

Food is going to be an extra challenge this weekend. We are going to a halloween house party on Saturday and staying the night, which will thus devolve into brunch. My plan is to listen to my body. Too often at parties I keep eating snacks when I'm already full. I won't be able to track calories well, but if I stop when I feel satiated I won't do too much damage. 

 

you got this! stopping when satiated is so hard for me when i'm surrounded by delicious foods.

We have the same plans. I am quietly freaking out about it especially because most of the people there are not the most... health conscious humans I know.

I also find it harder if my feet are stacked

That's funny, I can only do it if my feet are stacked, it's easier to lift my pelvis.

Friday cals: 2122

Went to the gym late and did 35+ min treadmill hill walk, which was wimpy but I woke up lighter this morning so I'll take it. I didn't want to go, but I remembered my goals and Laghail and Br0din told me to suck it up buttercup. Well, Laghail told me I could do burpees at home, but F that noise. I'd rather climb out of bed at 8 pm and drag myself to the gym than do burpees.

Maybe we should bring some gum? A small cooler of fizzy beverages to constantly drink and fill us up? Just cry in a corner?

It's like I'm looking into a facial expression mirror. I'm pretty sure I look dead inside when I plank.

Friday cals: 2122

Saturday cals:  party party party

Sunday cals: 2136

Trying to keep cals moderate because I'm testing 1RM this week and need the energy. 

 

Saturday I got up bright and sun-shiney f'in early to try to get in some exercise before the halloween party. I got to farfit right when it opened at 8 am, then I went for a bright and early mini-hike. But my ankle started to bug me halfway, so when I came to a crossing with the paved part of the park, I slow walked the paved trail back to the parking lot. Laaaame.

Partied a little too hard on Saturday night and my left hip is sore. I brought tylenol with me today and I'm hoping it won't affect my 1RM squat test this afternoon. If I feel like i bombed it though I can repeat it on Thursday. On the plus side pretty sure drunk danced off a chunk of calories. 

 

Zero week cardio on point: 

 

Date Earned Minutes Notes
Wed, Oct 18 $1.67 20 elliptical
Fri, Oct 20 $3.08 37 treadmill
Sat, Oct 21 $4.58 55 hike/walk

Zero Week $9.33    

 

Did side planks on Saturday. Missed them yesterday. Realized I don't have my plank alarm set to go off every day automatically. Went to set it this morning for the week and realized I had actually deleted it. Fixed that. But it's Week 1, giving myself a clean plank slate and away we go!

Well, that's better than looking constipated!  (Who, me?  Not at all!)

 

I mean, isn't that how you HAVE to look when you plank?

ETA: we had cheater beef stew for dinner last night and it was actually pretty great. Mr T threw in beef, carrots, celery, red potato and this bag of mix and it was easy breezy totall worth it for us while I'm having this crazy ass month. I thought it was going to come out thicker, but i'm totally happy with it being more like a stew. more food for the eatin'.

Ooh, this looks good. I've always done the standard beef broth/S&P, garlic powder, onion powder/veggies/roast for pot roast. I've looked for a way to impart more flavor to my pot roast. Possibly herbs? Hrm.

Monday cals: 2328 (maintenance on purpose)

Cardio: skipped hoping my hips will finish recovering for deadlift testing tomorrow (Wednesday)

 

Gotta fuel those 1RMs. 

 

anigif_enhanced-24393-1400474033-18.gif

 

Squat test: 

First PR attempt for a 5# PR went great, 145#! Then coach said I should put on at least 10# more and I thought he was joking but he was not. So 155# away we go!

 

I did it, but I felt like I was frozen in time for a second. He said depth was just barely there but he called it good. (He competes and takes BB club athletes to meets and is used to judging lifts so I know he wasn't BS'ing me.) The main thing is I never handle weights this heavy normally, so I still need to get comfortable squatting to depth. The heaviest singles I've done for working sets have been 125# so far. For the purpose of planning my next program, going with 155# max is the way to go. 


That's a 15# squat PR folks!

 

Bench test: 

First PR attempt for a 3# PR at 85# seemed pretty breezy. Before my arm surgery in May I had gotten 82#. The end of the previous program (6-7 weeks ago) I only got 80# post-surgery. So this is an all time 3# PR, but since the last test, 5# bench PR. Which is pretty decent because bench is lame.

 

Then we went for 90# and I just didn't have it in me. I rested a bit and went for 87#, didn't get that either. I think if I had done 87# first instead of 90 I could have gotten it, but I'll save that for the end of my next program. TL;DR, bench with my shit arms continues to be bench. lol.

Definitely feels like cardio is a never ending cycle.... like the hamster wheel of fitness.

I thought it was pretty wise myself. Exercising pre-party or pre-holiday meal is definitely the way to go!  Not in the right order, but I'm probably going to sign up for some kind of walking 5K for the weekend of Thanksgiving.

Definitely herbs! And a little bit of acidity is also important. You can use things like balsamic vinegar, red wine, or Worcestershire sauce for this.
