This sounds like a dream day of lifting and beer and like it was overall satisfying! I'm impressed that you are keeping up with the mobility during the work day. Once I get the mobility plan from the new trainer I might have to see if I can fit anything in while I'm at work. 


Keep on keeping on!

Week 2 summary:

 

Quest 1

*within 200 calories of 12,000 for the second week (1700/day) 12,353 for the week, check!

*cook all breakfasts and at least one lunch or dinner meal at home each weekend. 2/8 breakfast and 2/4 other meal cooked. breakfast is lagging due to having plans in the morning but I think I’m making up for it in cooking other meals?

*take measurements and progress photos for challenge end laterz

 

Quest 2

*complete 5 lifting sessions per week Check!

 

Quest 3

*foam rolling or mobility per week 30/30

*complete four yoga sessions throughout the challenge 2/4

*complete 3 cardio sessions throughout the challenge. 2/3

 

still could do better on the weekend with the drinking and the eating.

But you are really keeping it in pretty close with that calorie compliance and getting in those workouts, so great jobbb. :D 

 

definitely improving there! also i realized that all last week i thought my limit was 12200 but it was 12000.. sooo i technically did NOT stay within 200 cals of that. hahaha food

 

W3D1 – Sunday

 

woke up way too early on a Sunday after a late night at the grad party the day before. headed into boston to volunteer at a brewery’s 5-miler run. so no breakfast cooked. ate some free cliff bar samples and an almond milk latte. did a bunch of pretty easy tasks, got free beer/cider and lunch (sausages, pasta, bertuccis roll – hahaha). kind of good the SO couldn’t come seeing as she wouldn’t have been able to eat much!

 

had a good time and wanted to keep the fun going but my ride home wasn’t feeling it and I knew it was for the best. the ride and I went to gym together!

 

*deload* DLs

5x70#

5x90#

15x110# - again just getting in some volume if I have to be deloading

 

RDL

9x115#

9x115#

8x115#

 

alternating bent knee raises

1 min – 71 taps

1 min – 67 taps

1 min – 67 taps

1 min – 67 taps

 

the friend was doing leg press which I’ve never done before so I got in that thing and just did one set of 6 reps at 90#

 

and then I spent about 4 hours meal prepping for the week. the SO is away at a work conference so all the tasks that usually gets done by two people was only done by one. good grief. and I filled the dishwasher but I’m pretty sure it’s kicked the bucket – we should be getting a new one this wednesday. which means if it doesn’t run before then, I’ll have to empty the dirty dishes from it and wash them by hand. ughhhh the horror.

 

Ate some deli turkey, cheese, and celery for dinner. But then also had a quest bar and blueberries which (after the lovely carby lunch) put me way over my 1,800 daily goal.

*lunch or dinner 3/4

Still close to your limit though :)

i know right?! where were you at drink 5?? i was having these spiked selzers that are only 100 cals a pop and a nice 5% abv. the grapefruit ones were pretty good! much better than these which have a weird aftertaste.

I'm in a similar boat today. SO will be away, it'll be hard to sleep. But I cooked extra last night so tonight I can just be productive and get stuff done. And no lifting today, so even more free time! Cooking in bulk is so much winning. I wish I liked chicken thighs though, they always make me queasy. I'm stuck with chicken breast, which isn't so bad but it's more costly than thighs.

is it s texture thing with the thighs? sometimes certain brands are icky or the way i cook them makes them icky as well. i've learned through many trials and errors the best way that i like to eat muh chicken thighs :D

 

hope you're able to get to sleep tonight! i took some melatonin which helped

new dishwasher came last night! and the SO too! haha went to bed a bit late because of all the hubbub. the landlords (2 brothers) also put the metal base of the dishwasher on upsidedown so the dishwasher door wouldn't open. i said to the SO "i'm just going to muscle it open"... she saved the maytag and unscrewed it and installed it right.

 

i am also very excited for boston calling this weekend which i've never been to and love many of the artists that will be there! going to have to reel in the calories though for those days. monday is expected to be a nice lazy day off with food prep and some lifting and probably lattes. can you tell i'm ready for the weekend?

Sunday

 

cooked a couple eggs again for breakfast with some cauliflower. Ate least I’m not starting the days off with crazy food, eh?

 

*breakfast 4/8

 

could not get myself together to go lift. much hungover. went in and enjoyed a bomb bloody mary to get myself together. sunday was my favorite day for music. all of the artists I hadn’t heard of were amazing and then some great ones that I was really excited to see. drank lots of beer. went and grabbed food while the SO held down our spot for Haim. at this point the trucks were running out of stuff so I ended up getting her a plate of steak from ruth’s chris. word to the wise – if you get a plate of steak, put it in a more compact container before trying to cut through a zillion people to get back to your spot near the stage. I got a chicken sandwich from bon me which I had heard was pretty awesome (it was).

 

Haim rocked my socks off. then we listened/danced to disclosure from far away and also ate more bbq since they had made more beans and coleslaw by then.

 

It was a pretty fantastic weekend and I can’t wait to go every year now :D
