So out of nowhere my blog just goes, "POOF" and disappears! I couldn't believe it at first when I couldn't find my blog. I thought maybe the server was just down or something, but then Anthony C. posted that his was gone, too, and I began to mourn the loss of all that time and effort. I know I should have had better sense that to think that nothing like that would happen. I should have kept my own back-up. But honestly, that never was a serious consideration on my part. The lesson is learned, now, however, and I will begin the backup as soon as I figure out the best way to do that.
We just got back from Chicago where we've spent the last 5 days at a scuba convention marketing some of my husband's business products there. We had a really great time meeting some pretty cool and occasionally fairly famous (at least in that industry) people. We talked and shmoozed, had some good meals here, took a class or two there, and generally made the most of the long weekend. This is the farthest off my diet I have been since starting this venture last July, but I'm going to do my best not to beat myself up over it. Instead, I plan to buckle down and fall right back onto a good path now that I am home. I did, however, stay on my workout program.
Wednesday before leaving TN: Workout #2
1 min each drill
R L R L R L
Snatch 10 10 11 10 18 18
row 12 12 10 10 14 14
C&P 4 4 5 4 8 8
Lunge 9 11 10 10 13 13
*Completed all drills with one arm, rested one minute, then repeated with the other arm.
* The first 2 rounds I did with the 16 kg then finished up with the 12 kg because my arms had just been completely smoked.
Thursday: The Hyatt had the greatest hotel gym I'm ever seen--better than a lot of regular gyms, and I thoroughly enjoyed working out there.
Interval 2: Snatch 12 kg 15/side then run (or in this case elliptical machine) x 2 min for a total of 6 rounds.
Friday: Circuit 1
1 2 3 4 5
Double Snatch 12 10 10 10 9
Double C&P 4 5 5 5 4
Double Squat 6 6 6 6 6
Alternating Row 9 9 10 10 8--per side.
1 mn each round for a total of 5 rounds, 2 min between rounds. 2 12kg bells. I actually had to set down the bell after the snatch and C&P on each round, though I wasn't supposed to.
Saturday: Scheduled as an off day, but I did 40 minutes on the elliptical machine to sort of compensate for being too liberal with my calories.
Sunday: off day
