Aces3000 - Keep it simply stupendous


Aces3000

Recommended Posts

I don't like to call anyone, least of all myself, stupid.

 

I'm back in the swing of things after a short time away dealing with some muscle strain issues. After several weeks of physical therapy, I've turned a corner. At least that is what the therapist said the other night during my session.

 

Goal 1 - back to strength training. I'm cleared to work out regularly again. I will have three sessions each week and they will be scheduled in my calendar. That will start with a Thursday session with my trainer.

 

Goal 2 - back to stretching. 10 minutes per day minimum. Also I've found a Yoga basics class that meets on Sundays at a studio that I like. It's going in the calendar.

 

Goal 3 - back to tracking protein intake. 130-150g daily. Logged and accounted for.

 

That is it. I will only be able to post updates once or twice per week. I've recently weaned myself from excessive activity on the internet and it has been amazing. Productivity at work is at an all time high.

Thanks! I'm going to keep it simple this time around. I started reading Steve's book over the weekend and it made me want to get involved again. 

Good thinking. The book motivated me too :)

That must be it.  Perhaps his monkey ought to help train my monkey... 

Wait, that sounded dirty but I have no idea why.

I think I'm going to put my monkey in a box like a gimp and get some work done.  Although I'm really just going to a meeting which is like enforced productivity.

Challenge day 1 was good. Saw the physical therapist last night. Only one more session scheduled and that will be happening Wednesday. I am feeling a lot better. She's given me some great exercises and stretches that will help with developing the smaller muscles around my left shoulder. I definitely had a deficiency and was compensating for it. I was getting up to some heavy loads with the trainer, so it was probably just a matter of time. Anyway, the therapist said she was impressed and surprised at how quickly I turned this around. So yay me, I guess. I see the trainer on Thursday and have scheduled workouts for the rest on the month in my phone.

 

Did not eat enough protein yesterday, but will continue to track.

Saw the Physical Therapist last night and she cleared me for strength training. So I can now get back to my regularly scheduled workout sessions. My experience w/PT was great this time around. She was able to give me some great stretches to do and also some exercises that will continue to strengthen the small muscles in my shoulders, neck and upper back. I definitely need to focus on stretching more. I could stand to spend a little less time lifting when I go the gym and more time on the stretches. In the long run, it's going to make a huge difference. 

 

I see the trainer tonight and will report tomorrow on how it goes!

Great workout last night with the trainer! We're doing a lot of mobility exercises right now for my shoulder. I'm excited to be back in the gym. This weekend should be good and I'll have a chance to catch up on some challenge forums. Happy Friday! Woot woot!

Glad your workout went well.  It must feel great to be back.  And I am soooo glad it's almost the weekend.  I think we managed a Saturday with not much to do so there will be sleeping in..

Quick update since I have a work conference call starting in 3 minutes. Saw the trainer last night and had a great workout. My goal for this week is one more weight lifting session and more stretching. I've been doing stretching and mobility exercises every day and it's starting to pay off already. Gotta run. Have a great Wednesday Doodlies!

A great weekend here in Chicago. Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday! Or is having, depending on your time zone, I suppose! 

 

Had a session with the trainer on Saturday that was very good. I'm cleared to lift weights 2-3x per week again and planned to hit the gym on Saturday. However, my trainer had a time slot open at noon so chose to meet with him. I still feel a bit tentative about lifting on my own for some reason. Anyway, I see him again tomorrow evening and will go to the gym another couple of times this week. It does feel good to be back in the swing of things. Also was good about my stretching and flexibility exercises this weekend. 

 

I guess that is it for this post. Will check in with everyone and their threads later today.

Ha! I've been pretty busy the past few days. We had a two day work conference that was intense but valuable. It's going to be a good week and I should be able to get back to my regular schedule. Also on Wednesday I'm going out of town for a few days. Looking forward to a trip to New Mexico for a visit to my mother.
