Jord - tackles inertia

So much to do, so little time.

 

Tuesday cals: 1800

Wednesday cals: 1964

 

This is long because it's two days of updates and Italian notes:

 

I've been so constipated and bloated I haven't been able to eat as much. But my weight is still up from those two things. This morning it finally seemed like it's coming back down. I was so full yesterday I didn't really even it dinner, just had PB stuffed pretzels and some vodka bubblies. I've figured out that I get real constipated the week before my period, so I need to figure out a fiber plan for next month.

 

Tuesday's tai chi was fun, he finally played music while we practiced. Last night I went to BB club. It's starting to feel like my squat skills are returning and the weight isn't a TOTAL joke.

 

I'm still going gangbusters with duolingo. Today I looked up some podcasts for learning some italian so i can do it when I'm on the cardio machine. To sum up so far I'm doing...

1) duolingo on the website/app

2) slowly working through the Living Language books and CDs so I can listen on my drive home. I've discovered I can't do it when I'm driving in the morning when it's dark out because I need to concentrate on driving. So I just try to do 10-15 min a day on the way home. Maybe I'll consider sometimes going on the gym on the weekend just to do the seated bike and read the book rather than in my armchair at home?

3) starting podcasts for while on the elliptical.

 

Schedule notes:



Thursday: water aerobics aka swim class

Friday: cardio & cooking

Saturday: laundry & sewing & game night

Sunday: lifting & friend coming over to work on sewing her Halloween costume

Thursday: 2154

 

But water aerobics kicked my ASS, so I'm okay with it. My new water aerobics class (this was week 2) is deep water aerobics and they don't mess around. It's a good 30 min of solid swimming followed by strength and abs work. My abs are always killed by the end.

 

HOWEVER, dealing with changing out of the swimsuit and showering etc is kind of a pain in my ass. I discovered the jazzercise near me has 5:30 am classes every day. So after water aerobics ends in late November I'm going to switch to that. It's closer, before work, and most importantly doesn't involve wet clothing. I kind of would rather just switch to that now, but I'm pretty out of shape, so at least all the work I'm doing now will get me better prepared for fit latte moms.

 

Italian phrase of the day: fratelli = brothers. So in the movie The Goonies, the Fratelli brothers were literally the Brothers brothers.

Brothers^2, perhaps?

Confession time, I didn't really track my weekend calories...

 

Saturday: eggs & toast, snacks like protein bars & a string cheese, a little leftover beef ragu pasta, and then nerd game night with pizza, salad, and way to much vodka

Sunday: worst hangover of my life, taco bell breakfast burrito I was craving, then nothing until I ordered middle eastern combo for two takeout, I didnt eat a lot and was full. Then I fell asleep and didn't eat again after that. So my calories weren't too bad Sunday. But I didn't exercise because I was a hot pile of garbage.

 

Plan for today:

- eat right

- do laundry

 

Today's italian:

 


They have two interesting ways of saying good luck:

In Bocca al Lupo: Into the Mouth of the Wolf

In Culo Alla Balena: In a Whale's Ass

And how you should reply:

When someone says to you "in bocca al lupo" the receiver should answer "crepi" or "crepi il lupo" which means "may the wolf die."

When someone says to you "in culo alla balena" the receiver should answer "speriamo che non caghi" which means "let's hope it doesn't shit!"

I didn't do well yesterday but I'm tracking all my calories today.

HOWEVER, I've got that horrible pre-period constipation where I can't tell if I'm eating too much or just haven't pooped in two days.

 

Also, a sickness is going around work so I've given myself permission just to be nice to myself and get some rest, so I didn't do laundry last night. Tonight I"m getting groceries and going to tai chi. I feel tired and more tired. Tomorrow will be lifting and laundry. But I'm not feeling fabulous so I may just take the day off and catch up on laundry and do reading for work. I'm not full on sick yet but I feel it creepin' on me.

 

I almost forgot! ETA to add your italian for the day. Apparently they have a whole series of hand gestures that mean specific things, so if you get bored at work... Also the one for "are you afraid" is literally like your butt muscles squeezing when you are scared so apparently you are only supposed to use that one with friends...

 

 

This guys videos in general are usually good/funny:

If Oprah says it, then it must be true.

 

Okay I think I got my shit back in order.

 

Tuesday cals: 2155

 

Last night was Tai Chi, I lifted this morning because I have to work late. AND THEN I'm going to do a sourdough baking class, which I wish I wouldn't have signed up for because $ and time, but here we are. I'm still excited though. Dinner yesterday was crockpot chicken beans and green chile type stuff, eaten with sour cream and tortilla chips. But I have earlier in the week leftovers of chicken, veg, barley to finish up for lunch today.

 

I'm going to make fish on Friday and might try making that a thing. I don't want it to be leftovers for work because #microwavesmells but I like that it's low cal and good for you.

 

Planning:

Thursday: Cardio AM, water aerobics PM

Friday: barbell club AM

Wednesday cals: 2155

 

I worked out in the morning because I was going to have a long day. I did all my lifts except step-ups, but I did do my goblet squats. Because my legs were still sore from Mondays split squats, followed by 20 min of elliptical.


Calories were high because I TOOK A SOURDOUGH CLASS. And it was delicious and amazing and how could I not. I should not have, but I did eat some dang on pile of ding dang tasty bread. I have my starter now and shits about to get real. Things I want in my life: sourdough bread, sourdough cinnamon rolls, sourdough pizza, sourdough friends.

 

That kept me out late so I couldn't do morning cardio this morning before my 7:45 am dr. appt. So I have brought my stuff to work to do cardio in the evening.

 

Plan:

Thursday: post work cardio

Friday: AM BB Club

Weekend: traveling

Monday: late evening workout (unless for some crazy weekend we get back early on Monday and I'm all jazzed up to lift)

I think you and I would have been really sad if you hadn't eaten tasty bread!

 

friday night fish sounds like a good idea. i do sometimes make italian seasoned fish in the summer with some homemade coleslaw and then eat that cold the next day... it's not bad!

Thursday cals: 1929  (whoo!)

 

I have a confession. I went to jazzercise yesterday. I didn't die. I think I sweated out a good half a pound.

 

This morning I went to barbell club and wasn't fully recovered so that was akin to torture. Squats took me a good thirty minutes. And it was 5 sets of squats. So much work. Then I had bench press and trap bar deadlift. I ran out of time to do anything else before I had to leave for work.

 

I'm supposed to be going up north this weekend but Mr T is not feeling well, so we'll see. I might still go by myself as a self-care weekend and not waste the rental money.
