Friday's Update

 

1. Lift things according to program

Deadlifts happened Friday. Most weight I've loaded up with since the back injury (only 125, but it was heavy). Did a 4x3. Also did some front squats, and witnessed my elbow getting angry again. So I must be sometimes doing something funky with my forearm on that. Some bro stuff, the end. Good workout, though.

 

2. Eat 90+g protein

115g

 

3. Eat 2 veggies & a fruit a day

There was kale & banana & pineapple in my breakfast smoothie, and more kale at lunch. Did okay I suppose.

 

4. Don't go over 

1878/1850 today (tuaca overage late at night)

 

5. Don't cut yet, either

6. Write 2000 words a week!

Saturday's Update

 

1. Lift things according to program

Rest day, was out of town so I didn't do off day cardio

 

2. Eat 90+g protein

82g??????

I'm logging by memory. I didn't track because I was having a lot of fun and drinking and playing lots of games. I ate too much and only slightly regret it? I feel like I need days like this, just not too often. I feel like if this was the Harry Potter universe, we'd have a Rememblog, attached to our MFP apps and it would glow red when we forgot to log something

 

3. Eat 2 veggies & a fruit a day

There was pineapple juice in one of my drinks....

............

 

4. Don't go over 

2311/1550 today

1. Lift things according to program

Rest day

 

2. Eat 90+g protein

81g

 

3. Eat 2 veggies & a fruit a day

There was a splash of orange juice in my champagne this morning? Some mushrooms and tomato in the tom kha gai for dinner. That was it :( Sorry fam

 

4. Don't go over 

1277/1550 today 

 

Not on purpose. I was just still so full that I didn't want to eat. That's rare enough and I go over FAR more often that I let it slide.

 

5. Don't cut yet, either

We're right at the 5 lb mark for the bulk. 

 

6. Write 2000 words a week!

2045/2000

(It's so close b/c I was strapped for time)

 

And now another work week already. They always happen so soon :(

 

Here's a graphical summary of so far:

Week 1 gets a C+

with a note from teacher: You can do better :(

this would be brilliant. sometimes at potlucks I'll snap a pic of my plate but that always seems intrusive and i'm like I'm a feckin' oddball. Why aren't we living in the HP universe?

I'm just gonna out myself as that person who logs their shit at the table on Thanksgiving and Christmas because, particularly in the case of the former, screw y'all is what I say to anyone who cares. The event's at my parents' and they get me. My husband tolerates me. Everybody else can GTFO plz. But I get it if you just wanna have a good time and the act of logging harshes your vibes and whatnot (made myself lol...). You do you and as long as nobody's judging anybody for what they are (or aren't....) eating, it should be cool.

That's a great idea and to hell with haters, my problem is less one plate and more a bajillion snacks, so that's where the forgetfulness comes in XD

This one was also an extra hour earlier :( Our team was doing a big push to get the ticket count down and requested everyone come in between certain hours, the latest of which was still well before my normal start time :(

 

Tomorrow is back to normal for a bit, though.

A cover I really like. The original is probably my favorite song ever, but I felt like this would be the thing to post today.

 

W2D1

 

1. Lift things according to program

I didn't do shoulder/arms, but it was because of my elbow. On that topic, today I kind of rubbed the inside of my elbow and when I did that my shoulder popped of its own accord. It felt good and I have full range of motion without discomfort again. So, yeah, that's a thing? I guess I have some mild tendonitis for real that's affecting joints in the whole arm.

 

2. Eat 90+g protein

100g

 

3. Eat 2 veggies & a fruit a day

Spinach in my eggs, salad with lunch, two clementines

 

4. Don't go over 

1545/1550  

Kind of hungry though, chalking it up to the hefty eats on Saturday

 

5. Don't cut yet, either

All bloated this morning :S

 

6. Write 2000 words a week!

be kind to yourself about the weekend! your body may have enjoyed the extra fuel, especially when it told you it was overfull the next day - and that's okay :) 

 

i have had a weekend fiber goal for months btw (which roughly translates to your veg/fruit goal) and it's taken me a long time to figure out the best happy tasty way to make that happen. you'll get there!

So you had a net positive result from the popping? How is it now?

VERY nearly normal. Full range of motion, zero instability, and only the barest hint that something was ever wrong-feeling when it's fully extended and turned out

I'm wondering if that tendon yoink wasn't the thing that needed to happen all along, but there's no way to know so I'll take what I get :)

W2D2

 

1. Lift things according to program

I didn't realize it was deload week til I threw my program into FitNotes late last night. It's been hectic, I guess. Anyway, 2x5 at 80 lbs back squats, and I was fully intending to do 5x20 dumbbell romanian deadlifts but I kind of noticed my lower back was there on set 3, so that was that. I forgot my ab wheel and the gym's is missing so I did knee raises and got almost nothing out of it, so I guess it's core-exercise back up hunting time. (Planks are so boring ;_; but I might have to just deal)

 

2. Eat 90+g protein

88g

Failure to plan is planning to fail... or something

This was the fault of having a nova lox bagel for breakfast, which isn't very high protein, then bringing the protein brownie instead of the cookie (the cookie is less tasty, but 39g for 320 instead of 23g).

 

3. Eat 2 veggies & a fruit a day

Not so great, not sure I want to count today. The bagel had 2 slices of tomato, capers, and 2 slices of onion. Lunch had dolmas and I had a lot of dolmas, and grape leaf is a veggie right? :S Also some hummus. I also had some raisins and almonds. I wasn't bad today actually.

 

4. Don't go over 

1620/1850  

????????????????????? my appetite is wonky, blaming missing a pill and doubling up. Hormones do wacky stuff. I've way more than already made up for this anyway and it's deload week so just gonna leave it

 

5. Don't cut yet, either

Lost 1.4 lbs of bloat overnight mwahaha

 

6. Write 2000 words a week!

Gotta get up at the buttcrack of dawn to have my stupid teeth cleaned. Pity me.

W2D5 (Friday)

 

1. Lift things according to program

Deadlift deload, 2x5 at 90 lbs, felt good and strong. Got sold a personal training session Monday, so we'll see how that all goes.

 

2. Eat 90+g protein

77g :S oopsie

 

3. Eat 2 veggies & a fruit a day

Spinach & tomato at breakfast, and avocado is TECHNICALLY fruit... The rest of the day was a shitpile for food, though, and I've been doing that a lot more than I want to lately. Lunch was boneless chicken tenders with wing sauce, mac & cheese, and tater tots, and I had a seven layer bar (so tasty). Also a froo froo coffee. And 2 beers.

 

4. Don't go over 

2701/1850  

loooool 

 

5. Don't cut yet, either

Somehow lighter today and my bulk tracker thingo is confused, but hey whatever means I still am not in cut territory. (I will be before long if I keep up with days like that.

 

6. Write 2000 words a week!

Gonna relax like WHOA this weekend because next week will be nutsballs at work (two 11 hour days b/c I'm helping with a rollout, both of which begin at 6:30... mama gonna need caffeine on drip)

I don't know if other places sell them but the Murphy's Deli that's on site at work has them (along with Starbucks coffee, so maybe Starbucks has these???)

But it's basically a bottom made of crushed graham cracker, coconut filling, choco chips, and some other stuff. I didn't see seven layers, more like 2, but I'm not going to quibble about the name when it tastes so good. (If you don't like coconut shreds you won't like this, though, it's full of coconut)

I was getting coffee at the deli before work (well, caramel macchiato which is more treat than coffee) and I see this coconut looking bar with chocolate chips and I was definitely saying hell yes to that

 

Mr Ix hates coconut and this pleases me because it means I can have all of it
