Merry Xmas everyone! :D

It's hard not to completely let go here, in the land of best patisserie in the world! I'm managing to keep away, and have allocated cheese to only one meal per day ( dinner). I brought my 90% cocoa chocolate bar to have as dessert after lunch, but amongst the tonnes of chocolates my MIL has prepared there's a pack of dark choc medallions with nuts, and I like them! They're only 70%, though, and therefore rather moreish...

Am walking a lot, resting and meditating. Stretching too, but otherwise no physical activity at all. I might try some planks before bed, as I did here in the summer. Even some bodyweight squats - I feel so lazy at the moment, however, as if I deserve a good rest. The point is, movement is life, and that's the one thing I shouldn't be lazy about!

Thought I should record my Stronglifts in detail here, rather than on my challenge thread.

 

Today was Routine B

 

Squat warm ups: 20 kg x 5 reps x 2 sets

 

Squats:  55 kg x 5 reps x 5 sets

 

Overhead press - no warm up

 

OHP: 22.5 kg x 5 reps x 5 sets

 

Deadlift warm ups: 25 kg x 5 reps x 2 sets

 

Deadlift: 60 kg x 5 reps x 1 set

 

I held strong throughout; it was hard (just unracking the loaded bar for the squat was hard!) but I did it!  Yay! :D

tat

Deadlifts - 70 kg 1x5 (w/u was 30 kg 1x5)

Goal: Liberate and use stored energy, thus improving health and body composition

3.  Stretch thighs and hip flexors at least twice

 

What was great about today?  What did I enjoy? :  The restaurant date with Mr V., and the game

What did I learn today?  What challenged me to grow and how? :  I finished the book (Secret Life of Fat) - not overly impressed

What behaviour would I like to upgrade?  What else can I create? :  I could study the 4th Ed. rules;

Hm, maybe I should set goals/tasks for the weekend too, otherwise I just chill.  Which is not such a terrible thing, though, considering tiredness and recovery.

1.  36 h IF

What behaviour would I like to upgrade?  What else can I create? :  I want to be creative with the new challenge - but I may just be me

What did I do really well today?  What strengths did I use? :  I crushed the gym, also kept firm with the IF! :D

Hm, slightly fallen off the wagon regarding food in the last couple of days.  Not the quality (still LCHF) but the quantity - which means that the proteins were too high for effective keto.  Or were they?  A bit of a mess, but I'll keep pushing through, as in my new challenge
