train through play

I like these little “just move” workouts I have made up. It’s like playing….

Deck Squats 16K X 10
Burpees X 10

Then I played around with pistols. I did some doorway pistols, definitely a lot of work to do there. Then I did some wall assisted handstand presses, about 3.

Then I made dinner, mmmm.

Monday Morning Weigh in: 241.0

Posted in Diet and Bodyweight by Mike on September 17, 2007

Dang it.

Why, I don’t know. My knee jerk reaction is the same as it always is. I really want to lock down my diet. That never works though, so after a few deep breathes I’ll dismiss that. Still, 241. I weighed in at 236.4 on Saturday. My guess is that this is the 5 lbs of variability that Stephen and Chris talked about. Still, 241, dang it. I was pretty good this weekend and all last week.

I guess I have to wait and see where  I steady out this week. Last week I did allow myself a little more to eat in the mornings, so if I’m up, I guess that goes away. Shame too, I was so hungry before it. We’ve even been eating healthier for dinner and stuff. I keep hoping this is that last big rise before a loss that I seem to get.

In better news. June of  ’06 I measured my waist and found it to be 47.5 inches (As I recall). A year later I measured it and was 46.5 or 46.25 inches or something like that. I measured it yesterday, 43.75. That’s some progress. Still driving towards 40.0.

This morning I got up early, like when I do a morning workout. Instead of doing a workout though, I just stretched. It felt pretty good. I still have a small amount of residual soreness but I think the rowing yesterday did me a lot of good. The stretching was a nice wake up.

I expect this week will look a lot like last. I’ll try to do a little something every night. Monday and Wednesday, I’ll do some bodyweight/light kettlebell. Tuesday and Thursday will be sprints and heartrate, respectively, on the rower. I’ll also lift a little. Friday is gym day. If Dan shows up, I’ll do whatever. Otherwise, I might do an hour of Oly and an hour of conditioning. We’ll see.

Oh, and I haven’t the slightest clue why comments are turned off on Sunday’s workout.
