Weight going back down, energy coming back up
Thursday, August 26, 2010      6 comments

This week, aside from the issues with my hamstring (which seem to have mostly dissipated now that I've pushed through it), I seem to be getting back to normal. My weight is dropping back down (another pound or so gone since last week), and last... Read more
Stress weighing me down
Wednesday, August 25, 2010      16 comments

Lately, as of the past couple of weeks or so, I've been noticing that in my sessions and strength classes, I've been more tired, in more pain, just less able to do everything at the intensity I normally do. Now it's starting to look like it... Read more
Workout Adjustment
Tuesday, August 24, 2010      3 comments

My schedule for 5 days of the week should look something like this: Sunday: 3 hour bootcamp challenge (full body circuit - 1 hr, sprint/relay/obstacle/whatever - 45 min, break - 15 min, cardio kickboxking/sparring/rolling - 1 hr) Monda... Read more
Diet Adjustment: Week 1
Monday, August 23, 2010      5 comments

This weekend I started upping my protein and dropping my carbs closer to how I was eating towards the end of my weight training. Basically, this means carbs for breakfast and pre-workout, and a small amount post-workout (if it was tough). Of c... Read more
Shifting dietary needs
Friday, August 20, 2010      7 comments

Sometimes it seems like I just can't get a handle on what I need to eat to fuel my workouts and keep the weight off. Since I've started trying to replace my gym cardio with P90X cardio, I really have no idea. For one thing, I don't do P9... Read more
Always wanting more
Thursday, August 19, 2010      4 comments

It's still weird to me sometimes that this whole workout/fighting craving I have has lasted this long. I usually get interested in something new, then the interest fades. Even the first time I tried Krav Maga, I was excited, then the excitemen... Read more
3 hr asskicking - awesome as predicted
Monday, August 16, 2010      18 comments

Somehow, my sadistic trainer managed to pack all the pain of the previous weekend's 5 hour workout into a measly 3 hours. I blame the sprints. Sprint drills are EVIL. I am terrible at recovery. I foresee more of these in my future. The ... Read more

Decisions, decisions
Friday, August 13, 2010      9 comments

A decision looms before me, and like most decisions, it's difficult for me to pick a side. My gym membership is about to expire, and I can't decide if I want to renew or just let it expire. I only go to this gym now for my cardio workout, ... Read more
Maybe it's the environment
Wednesday, August 11, 2010      15 comments

Ok, I don't enjoy yoga. I don't like it in DVD form, and I don't like it in class form. Why? It's supposed to be relaxing, right? I like pushing myself to do things I can't normally do, right? I like the challenge of yoga, but I think... Read more
My body has a mind of its own
Tuesday, August 10, 2010      7 comments

Usually, my body and my brain agree. Hitting stuff is fun. A hard workout is awesome. Eating healthy feels better. Sometimes, though, I question my body's sanity. Because I'm weird, I will share the exchange I had with my body this morn... Read more
The Giant Five-Hour Workout
Sunday, August 08, 2010      5 comments

Yeah, today needed its own friggin post. Yes, it was 5 hours of group exercise, with a half hour break in between. In my trainer's words: 10:00am Full Body Bootcamp 11:30 - 12:30 Run -pushing my 4runner and pulling in back with the rope... Read more
A change of pace
Saturday, August 07, 2010      3 comments

I did something today I haven't done in a while. I broke out the P90X cardio. Generally, with all I do at the gym, krav maga, and the group classes/personal training, I don't use P90X. But today I didn't feel like driving all the way out to t... Read more
Mental drain vs. physical drain
Wednesday, August 04, 2010      2 comments

It's interesting that sometimes mental drain can feel like physical drain. I've seen a lot of posts that say something like: After a long day at work, I'm too tired to work out. All I want to do is unwind. I feel like this often. Today w... Read more
Apparently, I'm
Tuesday, August 03, 2010      1 comments

I believe tonight was the first time someone said to me, "I wish I had your body". Of course, it was just after my strength/conditioning class when we were just hanging out. People's minds tend to be on fitness (if they're not on soreness). ... Read more
