What a great year. I could go on and on. I guess what's what this blog is, after all. My journal of meanderings. :)
Anyhoo.... I hit my 'body weight back squat' target; actually did 165#. I did not get the pull up. I am still quite happy with progress. On to 2016!
My food tracker reminded me that if "every day were like today" I'd gain 10 pounds in five weeks.
I don't think that's the Christmas spirit. :)
I love "My Fitness Pal", and for sure they don't adopt that social/casual style that some of the brands I love do.... but would it have killed them to say like "Don't worry; there's always tomorrow". or "Don't look; you don't want to know"?
Dude seriously tried to pick me up at physio! And then I was thinking....
Everyone st physio is injured. Is he just a lion trying to pick off weak gazelles and physio is like the buffet of weak gazelles?
I made my target of body-weight squat a week ago. So... I was early! So last night we did a run to hit my 1RM. And... it's 165#... here is the video. I failed out at 170 # (not posting that vid!!), and am pleased that I saw it through!
Now I just to squeeze out that chin up in 2015....
Driving to work in the dark, and back in the dark. Summer is really , really gone. But I had such a GREAT summer, that winter seems less oppressive.
I had a great summer because we were out, active, enjoying the outdoors all the time.
We were out, and active, because I really learned to like cycling and we have some great trails.
I was able to learn to like cycling because it was work, but not too hard, and really actually enjoyable!
It wasn't so hard because I am fit!
I got fit because I joined GOODLIFE and got a trainer and did the work.
So... THANKS GOODLIFE , for the GREAT SUMMER!
Yep. today in yoga I was told to move the ball forward, and back, forward and back.... like I was moving a big ball of chi. 'cause that is a reference that helps. Love this girl; her voice is amazing, and she has a great way about her. But every class, there is one yoga-ism that makes me go "huh?"
On December 16th, I will find out my 1RM for barbell squat. One of my 2 targets for 2015 was to squat my weight, and I am within a few pounds @ 5 reps, so theoretically (mental state not withstanding!), I can do it. So we set the date to go from 'theoretically can' to 'done'. While we are at it (getting 155#), we are going to add in 5# increments and see where my current ceiling is. Probably 160, but who knows, maybe I can even do 165#.
Either way, we'll find out in 9 days!
The Chin up is a ways off yet. But not impossible.
Yesterday I felt weird because I was dis-interested in food. That's like being disinterested in shoes. Or kittens. But I figured it was just a one-off.
But I feel that way again today.
I was thinking of going this direction - SOYLENT. But then I might feel even worse than disinterested.
I wanted the relationship to change. But not this much. Booo!
Well, let's see tomorrow. Tonight is a lovely Italian joint for a work event, so maybe it'll re-pique my appetite.
