That probably wasn’t smart…
1.02 miles. 12:34. No running since last July, so the pace was pretty good I think, but technically against doctor’s orders to go easy if I run…
Breathing sucked. Legs were heavy. Sweating profusely. More saliva than I can handle so spitting like crazy.
Not sure if I liked it or hated it…
Weighed in last Monday for a restart weight since we got back on the train. A week later and I was nervous and excited to see what the scale would show.
- Restart weight: 252
- Current weight: 241
- Loss: 11
Yowza! That was with one bad night too. It’s results like this that keep me motivated. So this morning while I am here at the airport getting ready to be gone for a couple of days, I got an iced “skinny” latte at Starbucks instead of the regular iced latte that I normally get.
Conscious decisions, people. I need to keep making them.
Eating is still going well. Almost fully recovered from Monday’s workout so that I can do it again.
My name is Tristan, and I’m a foodaholic. Yup. Eating healthy or healthier, or just plain not bad eating has always been tough for me. I
like love food. All kinds. I don’t like not eating what I want, when I want. It is harder for me to give up foods that I love than it was for me to give up cigarettes almost 8 years ago. BUT…
Yesterday Heidi and I got back on track. Eating was great all day. Under calories. Went to The Big Top and put in some real good work.
10 min amrap: (completed 3.5 rds)
- 20 sledge swings
- 20 box jumps (20.5” tire)
10 min amrap: (completed 5 rds)
- 10 pushups
- 10 oh walking lunges (25# plate)
5 min amrap: (completed 6 rds)
10 min stationary bike
It was great. No back pain. Felt like I was dying a few times, but that means it was working.
Today was another good day. Eating was really good. Under calories. Since I’m quite sore at this point, I did some light activity when I got home with the kids. We shot baskets, played pass with a football, and played some catch with a baseball. Spent about 30-35 minutes moving around out there before dinner. Now I’m trying to keep moving a little to keep from stiffening up too much.
On goes the good fight…
Saw this while scrolling through my G+ stream. It is relevant here too.
Little Man wasn’t feeling up to par this morning, so it was a work from home day. As the day has gone on, he’s been getting better to the point of normal. So we were sitting here after we ate lunch and I said, “You want to go to TBT?” He was all for it.
7 rds / 1 min per movement with a quick 30 second breather between rds:
- kb swings - 44#
- rope slams
- zercher squats - 40# sandbag
Little Man created his own workout. 3 rds:
- sled push - down/back
- 10 pull ups
- 5 laps around gym
- 5 kb swings - 10#
- 6 crunches
- 15 jumping jacks
We are both chillaxin’ right now before we have to go pick up the daughter at school and have a daddy/kids night since the wife is Vegas bound.
The wife said that if I bought those new shoes, I needed to go to The Big Top more often than I was lately and use them. Granted, I paid for them with a gift card so they were technically free, but it was her gift card…so I would be wise to listen. :)
So since I was alone this afternoon, I hit TBT. I’m still getting back into it, so I’m keeping the weights light until I feel my back is strong enough to push the limits again.
For starters, 3 sets of 10:
- kb c+p r - 30#
- kb c+p l - 30#
- bb squat - 75#
- bb c+p - 75#
Then I got down and dirty with a recent favorite:
- bb double clutch walk 10 ft - 75#/each side
- dragon walk back to start
- walking lunge back to bb
- repeat these three movements until out 60 ft then after last lunge back to bb, dc the bb the full 60 ft back to the start
I’d say that I broke the new sneaks in real well. They may even hate me now…
I don’t think anyone will notice me at The Big Top…
Haven’t been to The Big Top the past couple of weeks. With cheering competitions every weekend and other life events, it’s been hard. So I hit the basement this morning for a workout while the wife is out running 11 miles with a friend.
Did my own version of 200 for time:
- 20 pushups
- 20 weighted lunges
- 20 crunches
- 20 dips
- 20 weighted squats
- 20 t-legs
- 20 one armed plank rows
- 20 weighted step ups
- 20 stability ball ham curl
- 20 dragon walk
21:22. I could tell it had been too long. I was so winded after only a few of each different movement. Crazy how quickly you lose it if you don’t use it.
I’m not sure why it took me so long to just go to the basement and do a workout like this since I haven’t been able to get to TBT, but I’m not going to wait that long again!
We rocked that Father/Daughter dance. Heidi is a bit jealous since I am not the dancing type, but for my baby girl I cut up the floor.
