This is something I'd forgotten about living by the coast in the south - how GNARLY the cold air is on my poor face.  I've been on red alert mode over the past week trying to rehydrate like a maniac after my face turned lizard-style, LOL

 

It's about to get absolutely wretched up in here. Prepare maybe?

Nice to hear that you are seeing both decrease in your waist measurement and overall PRs.

 

How do you manage to get such precise measurements? I can get down to fractions of an inch on my calves because they have no fat layer. My waist and hips are padded enough that I just go for the nearest inch. Right now I'm using the fit of my pants as a guide. That's confirming the numbers on the scale that say I am a few pounds up.  I suspect the difference between 156 and 151 is about the same as between 120 and 116 in terms of effort needed to get rid of it. Right there at this is technically okay but not at all where I want to be long-term.

Thanks. I'm working on hammering out exactly how I'm measuring and where, which is why some measurements looked a bit...strange at first. The only real rule is you need to be able to get a finger in between you and the tape measure, at least that I know of. I get the measuring tape tight-ish, but draw the line at seeing skin begin to wrinkle/twist. If I'm seeing that at the spot where I'm reading out my measurement, it's too tight. Back off to just shy of that. I guess the most important thing in this case is consistency however you do it, right?

So have you re-mastered Calculus yet?

 

I have not done a thing about it in a long time.  The last thing I did was a couple of weeks ago, before vacation, figuring out different ways to look at correlation in a statistical analysis.

117.4lbs is a good number. (Wednesday morning weighed 118.6lbs, which is -1lb from typical gym days of prior weeks, making my shorts go from barely tolerable to an okay fit actually) My clothes will fit me best in the 115-118lb range, it seems. I wouldn't want to go lower than 115, I don't think. I'll seek maintenance in the 116-117 range as mentioned earlier, I don't think performance will be harmed, at least not at 117 since I know the difference is not LBM-related. 

 

An uneventful day overall after I stepped off the scale lol. I have decided to investigate what block periodization would look like for me when the day comes that I no longer can keep tweaking my current program without changing the week-to-week structure itself. Planned migration will begin, when forced by performance issues, in the following sequence:

 

1. Experiment with a few key assistance exercises on light days

2. Add a week or two piecemeal

3. Implement new block program, which by this point will only be a couple additional weeks

 

I feel good about getting a new program lined up well before I will need it, like a smart human. New program will likely be basically my current program stretched out (5s/3s weeks become a 4 week period, 3s/2s get 2 weeks, and 1s get two weeks), with a much bigger emphasis on building up stress with volume before shifting intensity up and reps down. The less I change simultaneously, the less likely I am to muck it up. I have literally just begun to design this, so this is subject to change. I've looked at Juggernaut and Danger method, squinted at them, and I just can't see doing either for the reason that they change so much--sets, reps, the periodization--everything from roof to basement is different. I have not deleted either template from my log mainly because it was a lot of damn effort to set them up lol and they are not inherently BAD programs by any means. It just requires gambling a lot by jumping from my current setup to one of them. Going from my proposed block periodization to one of those programs might not be nearly so extreme. If I wear out this new program I will be making much, much slower progress (weekly RMs to every 2 months is a big shift in terms of how much work I have to exert in order to hit a PR), but not as big as going straight to Juggernaut or Danger, which is 3 weeks per rep range (12 week block) and 1 month per rep range (16 weeks per block). I like Danger better in that the entire day's volume has been thoughtfully calculated already instead of forcing me to guess what that ought to look like. Ramping up to the work sets is a very important part of the process. However clearly going from 2 months to 16 is a big jump as well, which demands some consideration. A jaunt through some intermediary programs would be necessary, as well as exposure to these higher volume sessions to see what I am in fact able to do when it takes multiple weeks to make any progress. Things. Stuff.

 

I'm going to need to re-establish moisturizing and house-cleaning habits. All signs indicate this must happen.

Remastery suggests I had it mastered ever. No and no. I just have a clue or two to rub together, nothing more lol. But that's all I really wanted for the most part...

There is something up with my right knee, or rather the muscles around my right knee. Something's certifiably unhappy and it needs to be found and destroyed. Or something. It's not a problem in everyday life, but it expresses itself most when putting on my knee sleeve. That compression shifting up my leg, y'all. An otherwise completely unremarkable gym session. I did it, I guess? Woo?

 

I worked on my block periodization scheme to make it as believable as possible for me to shift to it right now and it not look super duper foreign in every possible way. Just most of them. No idea how to set the weights for some of the exercise variations, but that's okay I just stuck something in there and we'll get there when/if we get there. 

 

Dojo time was spent on katatetori gokyo, aiki otoshi and its sokumen iriminage cousin, the clothesline. Lol. All my partners weigh more than I do, so God bless squats is all I can say. In aiki otoshi, you have to get a leg behind the person who has grabbed you from behind, squat down, lift up behind their knees, and pitch them over your leg. A full squat is key, quarter squatting is a good way to get a twisted ankle, FYI. Gokyo went well enough, aiki otoshi needs work, and iriminage is lol. 

 

The only way I got over 2000 calories today was by way of inca corn, tortilla chips, and 4 slices of cheese. And now we wait to see if I have brought doom upon us all.

A really uninspired day, truly. I reviewed my Monday techniques and compared them against Wednesday's, otherwise I have precious little to report. It was a high carb day due to me not cooking dinner and Friday morning BM was still somehow normal-ish?

I felt more like I was synchronizing with my work sets better here than I have in prior weeks. It's probably the relatively lower intensity talking.

 

Work was on fire, I was on fire, my desk was on fire, the building was on fire, the whole dang planet was on fire. GOTTA GET IT DONE BY 5PM NO OVERTIME NO NOTICE WHY.

 

Also  my macros stumbled and face-planted. No idea what was up with that aside from too little macro-friendly food and too few give-a-damns to fix the proper stuff. Guess I'll die.

Measurements were up, except for scale weight and waist size, which were low-ish and down, respectively. I'll take it. Got no other options anyway lol. Deadlifts were way harder than squats. Maybe it's because I had two hours to do squats and less than an hour to deadlift all the things? The world may never know. 



Sunday

I sorta thought about jo while lying in bed with the lights off trying to fall asleep. What week is this again?? When will I make Aikido a priority outside the dojo? Argh. I did mop the floor and make gumbo (bacon, beer, and butter...), so there's that.

 

Sorry for the shoestring update, but work has decided to continue being on fire from the moment I sat in my chair, so I am struggling to have a positive, introspective mindset right now and there are no other opportunities to write this stuff down so here we are.

That thing where the day after something needs to go out they rip away all illusion that the peon had any say over how the process works, roll the TPS  BS back, and sorta halfway try to explain how to correct it in -5 minutes because I'm late for a meeting where I'm being asked about the status of testing something that has already been tested it's just the G-D bloody friggin' TPS REPORT that needs to be given just so header and information grouped that way over there. We're having a meeting to straighten this curly fry of a process out.

And from the moment I sat down I am so out of sorts that my stomach just really doesn't want to think about food, but I did make myself eat my fried eggs and guac after being interrupted multiple times by the same people to talk around the issue. On an unrelated note, my head is killing me.

Wait, you're still here? Okay then, you must be really bored. At the gym, the barbells were fine, but the water fountain in the locker room was broken and the repairman came in to work on it right when I needed to get dressed, which is always convenient. Work happened, which I explained sort of above and nobody needs to know or care about the details of it. I don't care to relive the magic, either. Suffice it to say a headache found me and I was so disturbed by it while writing up my weekend recap that I completely forgot to mention we found out my husband is going to need ~hernia surgery ~ Oh boy. This morning we did the consult and D-Day is Wednesday at dark o'thirty, so I sense a nap coming on for the both of us after it's over. At least it's going to be a laproscopic affair, so that will keep the likelihood of infection and prolonged recovery to a minimum and also only one big dose of antibiotics instead of a course afterwar? Guess who's going to be eating yogurt and sauerkraut like it's going out of style very soon.

 

Dojo time involved suwari waza, nikyo and ikyo for days. I'm going to take Wednesday off because it seems fitting to anti-Halloween by hermiting up in a dark house with my laptop doing the Youtube thing with delivered/picked-up food and it turns out most everyone else will be doing Halloween-related things anyway, so there wouldn't be much of a class to attend anyway. I feel very unmotivated to do the candy thing for a host of reasons, not the least of which is nobody is here to eat the inevitable leftover candy, I don't like waste, I don't like answering the door to strangers over and over and over again (but more likely nobody comes up our street because the little snots want to be dropped off at a Flat Neighborhood with Well Lit Streets), etc.

I LOVE Halloween but I hate this part, like, answering the doors over and over and I have to pretend to give a flying hoohoo about Lil Jimmy's Fortnite Costume or whatever no I'd rather be playing video games and drinking pumpkin-flavored liquor or something thanks........

I love orange and black and bats and cats as much as the next person, probably more actually (except orange.....meh), but LBR it ain't like it once was. Once candy was a Big Deal, but those days don't come back. And then there's a tiny part of me that knows this and figures while I'm never going to hand out mini salads to anybody, throwing Kit-Kats at children is probably not helping anyone.

We did the surgery consult, found out it will be on (next) Wednesday early early early. I will be bringing my phone charger and food for the projected 45 minute procedure, hopefully they stick to that timeline so we can drive home, nap, and I can gym while husband of mine naps further. Maybe I'll Aikido, maybe I'll not. Depends on whether he feels okay with me going across town for like 4 hours or so. The commute is brutal and I would need to leave early to avoid screeching in at the bell. Also free food at parents' house. That too.

 

Things to think about.

 

 

The volume of meetings this week is Too Damn High. Bah. 

 

I think hummus is okay-ish. Maybe not in concert with guac, oatmeal, and whatever else, but it's okay-ish. Maybe. Might lead to some misbehavior by my digestive system, just not the usual kind. Not sure if it's the reason I'm holding at 120lbs on the nose this week, but things were normal before I ate 4oz of delicious, delicious smushed chickpeas and garlic.

This was a pretty good session, actually. I got up "on time" for it and everything, so I had enough rest to make 200lbs with proper rest between sets.

 

Who schedules a 3 hour meeting on Halloween? Seriously, who? It was supposed to be a 5 hour meeting but for the fact that nobody was wanting to get out of work at 5:30 on the get-obscenely-drunk-and-take-the-next-day-off-to-recover day. I know that was at least one guy's plan, and he was in that meeting, so there is in fact truth to the previous statement. I got to leave work a half hour early as a consolation prize for being in that meeting, so I ordered food, drove it home, ate it, and went to bed with most of the lights off. Exactly as planned. Nobody knocked on the door, but the neighbors' dogs were going nuts for a few minutes while it was still daylight. My husband was off scaring children at his brother's house until 9PM, which is about when I truly conked out. 

 

I forgot to meal plan for the next day and scoop the cat box, which was unfortunate and now I'm living dangerously just grabbing what looks relevant to my macros and hoping like heck I am not wrong. Apparently this is as close as I get to irresponsible revelry lol--someone else makes my dinner and then I go straight to bed. Where's that meme about all the childhood punishments that have become my life goals....

Macros have been tricky the last few days, fat and fiber especially, due to poor planning and work fatigue. Probably. I dunno. Things are getting better on the work front and I haven't just completely blown anything wide open. Gym time is okay. I can't complain about much (though don't press me, I can probably manage something...). Today's fiber was rescued by me not seeing the second bag of broccoli and that totally in our freezer so I dumped butter peas in along with the one bag of broccoli and that made all the difference. Allll the BM ever followed the caffeine hit of Friday's preworkout. Not noticing an immediate difference from the change in preworkout, positive or negative, but that's probably not a bad thing per say. Extreme changes are not really desirable. I am hoping to see an easing of the digestive....turbulence immediately upon consuming the stuff and/or a change in my tolerance for things that are borderline poorly digestible. AKA we're testing to see if sucralose is evil: defined as small nukes in my bowel undoing a lot of the good I've done with the rest of my diet, even though the human body cannot actually do the normal metabolic things it likes to do with its energy sources. It's a homunculus of sucrose by way of chlorine. Calorie-free! * coughs * Anyway, the new preworkout I got has regular old dirty awful table sugar for its sweetener. Imagine that. Of course there's always just not taking preworkout, but that may get harder rather than easier to do as temperature continues to drop. I am but mortal.

I'm glad to hear that things are getting better on the work front. 

 

I have my suspicions about sucralose. Just because humans can't metabolize it does not mean that gut bacteria can't. And most likely the gut bacteria that use it are the trouble makers.

 

Mike's surgery is next Wednesday, right? Going out and scaring kids after surgery sounds like a little too much fun.

I have my suspicions about sucralose. Just because humans can't metabolize it does not mean that gut bacteria can't. And most likely the gut bacteria that use it are the trouble makers.

 

Ding ding ding, we have a winner.

Mike's surgery is next Wednesday, right? Going out and scaring kids after surgery sounds like a little too much fun.

 

Yes and if I wasn't a chronically tired introvert who doesn't like interacting with kids on a normal day, I'd agree lol. They had to construct an elaborate lawn contraption complete with actual coffin for hubs to leap out of at the stupid children who are putting themselves in that position for mystery candy. It might not even be good candy...they might be allergic to Reese's cups...they don't know.....

I felt a little weak ramping up for the big time OHP. 76 felt like crap. 78 felt equivalently like crap. Decided since it didn't make much difference between those two singles, why not go for broke(n) and hit 81.5lbs since I'd totally gotten 80-81lbs under my 4" belt. Um no. No honey you did some 80lb singles 4 and 1 months ago, tried and failed 81lbs 3 months ago. Finally got that 81lb single a month ago. I figured this out after I'd done a set or two of 81.5lbs. The mind is a hilarious device. 

 

This work day brought to you by NOTICE ME SEMPAI. You ever have one of those days where exactly nothing on your plate means jack crap to anybody else? That was my life all day long. 

 

I may have eaten an inordinate amount of chocolate because I saw truffles in the store and decided f it, I am getting me some truffles.

Okay Saturday. Saturday. Started off with a WTF because I weighed in at 117.2lbs?? I think I'm seeing a pattern of one day being really really low before it jumps up due to Shark Week then spends the next two weeks walking back down slowly. I think I'd be happy living in the mid-117s, because clearly it is not hurting my ability to PR. But I don't even know what is with those measurements tho. 

 

That deadlift was super scary, I was shaking before the attempt, but it wasn't that much of a grind? A little slow? After maximal squats? Okay?? 



Sunday

Amazingly enough, did not hurt at all on Sunday after that epic session? Not even a little bit? Hurt a lot on Saturday mind you, but Sunday was good. Moved some winter clothes around, put stuff in donation bag, did all the laundry, all the dishes, cooked all the food, all by myself because husband was away at a big car show (I am not about that 8 hour car ride life to get home at midnight on Sunday with no clothes to wear on Monday, no sir no ma'am). Even got my winter skin care stuff out (and hunted for something to use on short notice for Aikido nights at my parents' house). I did everything except Aikido-related things, which is lame but at some point I just had to call it and spend a good slice of time resting because this week is gonna be Extra. Surgery is T-2 days away.

Hey ho Brave New World, how ya been??

 

It's like, sure yeah what you do for a living is meaningful and worthwhile and I pretty much assume Impatient Creations is going to mop up whatever categories are relevant, but I just can't with the driving and the standing around (or sitting around) a lawn after having spend 30 minutes to an hour looking at all the cars and I'm like a child in a jewelry store. It all sure as hell is shiny and I have NO IDEA what any of it is worth. Or is called. Or if it's custom or original. Or the only one ever left in the world ever and I could totally wreck some $800,000+ of investment with one poor choice involving my butt and the "rivets" on my jeans nobody thinks about until they marry into cars. * COUGHS * -100/10 would not recommend over death and permanent disability.

 

Look it's not you, it's me. Taking me to a fancy car show is like taking a theoretical physicist to an anime convention. Or, hell, an anime fan to a physics convention. I'm just not on that level and it stresses me out about what all I'd be missing that Has to Get Done for Us to Live. He got home at actual midnight (the first crack of midnight Monday). Is having surgery on Wednesday. I'm just not cut out of that cloth, gang. I would die.
