A real gym!
The hotel (CLICK FOR HOTEL) has a REAL gym! Super stoked. Had to wait for the squat rack, so was a bit fatigued, but I did get under the bar.
Not sure I will get there every day (it was very busy also), but I got there today, and today is all there is, so far. :)
Won't be getting to the gym today. Already @ the airport (7:30 AM, and at the gate...), and arrive to DFW just in time to check in and get ready for cocktails.
It's funny how addicted I have become to the gym. It isn't even just that I notice if I don't go (after the fact), but...I actually CRAVE it. Such a strange little anticipation feeling... I'd go so far as to say an urgency.
Anyway; @ a trade show for 4 days, so ... I brought gym stuff, but doubt I'll really get into the gym. Let's see how it goes!
I really love this site/app. My_Fitness_Pal_CLICKME
And today, she predicts the above. (She does know what I eat and how I train, so she has the intel). So I will check back in, in 5 weeks. Let's see!
High tea and abs...
I went to a HighTea yesterday (for clarity, this was not a bunch of people with weed and some chamomile) for a friends Wedding Shower. I wore a suitable dress that I just got relatively recently. Which, when I got it, was pretty a pretty tight fit and very stiff fabric (smile, but don't breathe, if you know what I mean). A little lady-like number that would not look out of place at a tea party. So, I wore it. And it didn't fit. Actually, there was ALOT of room. Which is weird cause I didn't think I had lost THAT much weight in the last few months.
As it happens, it's 8# (so a bit more than I thought) in the last few months. Still not enough to have made the amount of room I had in this dress (ps; I do miss my tits, just a little bit)... so it's apparent that indeed you can change your shape without changing your weight. So while you can't believe everything you read, I guess you can believe that.
Back under the bar!
Calendar from LIFTIUM. Love this little app!
2 weeks of mostly white space owing to a back spasm...but back at it now. Exceptionally low weight, but hopefully can get to 135# squat in a week and then fight for the next 20# back.
It's hard to lose traction as I fall SO far back. :(
But I gave a lot of fight in me ...or at least am developing it, so it's not a rush.
Perhaps compassion, to myself, is just another version of restraint to learn.
What are limits?
KH is making me think. And like web-surfing, it starts with a brain-ramble about a narrow topic, and eventually burgeons into something that's like "How did I get here, exactly?"
Anyway, I was thinking about targets, and limits. I set some targets that I think are the upper limit of my potential. But I don't really know what my limits are until I hit them. But then how can you set a target? I don't want to limit to short term thinking only, and don't want to set the bar low. But I don't want to set goals I will consistently miss, or are unattainable. I like small wins.
Anyway, .... it does not really matter that much (.... and yet here I am diary-ing about it), but I DO like to think. I don't know if I like that I like to think....(brain ramble, here we come...)
I got a few training plans from J as an outcome of a recent bet....
Not as good as the real deal, but better than free-style. :) And my quads hurt, so.... there's that....
LONG TERM Goals baby!
Body weight 135#
Lean Body Mass 101#
Wilks Score 250
Push ups set of 50
Carl Jung was right....
You are what you do, not what you say you'll do.
Crinked up for what?
lower back .... ugh. And I hardly did anything. Just the de-rack and PING...
