Progress Report

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

First...progress, or lack thereof, on the homefront...Mom is back in the hospital from another fall, and they are talking about sending her to rehab for a while to build her strength. Daddy is fighting that for whatever reason. We'll see.

Now... I decided to see where the measurements were falling since the weight is staying up.
Sunday the 15th January 22 January 23
Waist 31" 31" 30.75"
belly button 36.75" 36.5" 35.5"
Hips 38.5" 38.5" 37.75"
thighs 22" 21.5"

Since January I have had two PR's including snatching the 20kg for a few reps and push pressing it once on each side.
WORKOUT: No workout today. Rest.

Double 16kg C&P 3 4-rung ladders. The last C&P on the last rung of the final two ladders was a pushpress. I'll have to stick those presses before I move on.
Double 16kg squat 3 3-rung ladders.
16kg snatch 30 sec R, 30 sec L, 30sec rest for 6 rounds.

5 rounds of: Snatch 20kg 3x/side, sprint 40yds, 5 burpees, jog 40 yards, rest 1 min. Then run 9 minutes (trying to build this to a 9 min mile).

5 5-rung ladders of green band assisted pull-ups/pushups.
5 2-rung ladders of assisted pistols
20kg TGU 1/1 x 6
20kg Tabata swing.


  1. Hey Jennifer,
    Sorry to hear about your mom. I hope she recovers quickly.

  2. I'm assuming, based on other things you've said, that your parents are in their 70s. Or at the very least pushing that number.

    Now remembering the average american lifespan for people in your parent's generation, try to think of reasons you Dad might be fighting an in patient rehab center?

    congrats on the Personal Records, and way to go on the measurements too.

  3. Thanks for coming by Angela! I hope things are going well for you. :)

    Yeah,Chris,my mom is 77, and my dad is 72. I guess he is afraid of that rehab turning into a nursing home stay. Man, this whole thing just SUCKS.
