Workout 23-June-2017

With the rest day yesterday it was really hard to get up and get back in the swing of things. Need to figure out something so it’s a bit easier next week

Notes for the day: 

  • Having some pain in my right foot..I think its time to switch off the treadmill for a bit and do something less impactful.
  • Had a 30min massage to work on my lower back..Been giving me some issues for a couple of days. Massage definitely helped.
  • Cheat meal was yesterday and I had a *lot* of sodium and I think that’s why I’ve had a headache for most of the day.
  • So damn thirsty today..Probably due to the above.

Workout 21-June-2017

The more I work with the TRX setup the more I enjoy it. Definitely thinking about getting a set to use around the house and if I have to travel. Noticed something pretty cool on the treadmill today. Both sessions I had to kick up the mph to keep my HR around 120-125bpm. And also I could barely keep up with the treadmill last week at 3.5mph and today I was at 3.4mph for my entire afternoon session and it felt really good. I’m also now able to wear shirts that I wasn’t able to fit in a month ago. Most are still 2xl but the fact they were skin tight a month ago and now they’re loose is some kick ass motivation!

Workout 20-June-2017

Tuesday means it’s weigh in day! Today I’m down 3.1lbs from last Tuesday. Overall since May 22nd I’m down 17.3lbs. I’m really happy with the progress so far. Went a bit over on my fat today but getting closer with carbs and even protein. Trying out some new protein cookies to see how I like them. They actually have 10g more protein than the whey protein power I’m using.

Workout 19-June-2017

A new week means a new session/workout with my trainer. She and I meet every Monday morning to run through a new workout and answer any question I have. Forgot to log my bfast this morning so I ended up going over on carbs. Still having some issues getting close to my daily protein goals. I’m eating a lot of turkey, beef and also supplementing with a whey protein powder. I want to continue losing weight but I don’t want to lose strength so I want to definitely hit that protein number.

Workout 18-June-2016

Solid workout today along with a walk on the greenway. I have really come to enjoy using the TRX strap system. It allows me to do things like squats in a modified position to take pressure off my knees. However since I’ve been doing them using TRX straps I’m now almost able to stand completely vertical and do a full depth squat with no pain in my knees.

Workout 17-June-2017

So this morning I woke up and did *not* feel like going to the gym. I thought it was because I was tired and my body was telling me to slow down a bit so I was going to make today a rest day. As I was cooking breakfast and eating I realized I didn’t feel tired or worn out. Giving it some more thought and being totally honest with myself I realized that the workout I was supposed to do today has some exercises that I’m not a huge fan of. Once I realized that it was like a switch flipped and I put my gym clothes on and proceeded to have a *really* good workout. I’m pretty proud of myself for figuring this out and being totally honest about why I didn’t want to workout today. So here’s the workout.
