I have several random things floating around in my head, so rather than make them coalesce or elaborate on one while hoping to cover the others later, I'm just going to jump around and cover them all now.
One of the reasons I've not been posting as much is that I seem to be insanely busy on top of being a little out of the habit. Another is that I seem to be perseverating on negativity with regard to my training and nutrition, and I don't want to sound like a broken record. Part of me really wants someone else to write out my workouts, but another part of me is afraid to relinquish that control. LOL Then I think, "Well, YOU aren't getting YOURSELF where you want to be, so someone else can't do too much worse." So at that point my being a tightwad kicks in. :)
I keep having these random thoughts about how to get myself back on track nutritionally. I've known for a long time that my self control is limited to my being a teetotaller. If I never have the first one, I do okay, but as soon as I have ONE, I want the whole container. Tonight, though, I realized that where I wouldn't even consider going to the snack machine and buying a bag of candy, sometimes--once I get started--I'll eat way more than that just because it's there, because I let someone else's "feelings" come before my own. These little insights bring me just a small piece closer to being able to understand myself well enough to keep myself in control.
AS OF RIGHT NOW I WILL MAKE IT THROUGH THE NEXT 168 HOURS WITHOUT BREAD OR PROCESSED SUGAR. That is one week. No bread. No processed sugar. Done.
It hit me tonight that my goal is 39.5# away. That's a lot. That sucks. 39. 5. Ugh. Better stick to the above-mentioned plan. CONSISTENCY. That's the biggest part of what I lack nutritionally. Now's the time to get it back--do the work, quit worrying about the outcome.
Hitting some PR's here and there. Snatching the 20kg for reps feels good--in that masochistic sort of way. Gotta get a new 20kg bell, though. The one I have isn't very good. 20kg TGU's today felt GREAT, sturdy in a new way.
Took the last week off from workouts. I worked 6 days in a row, was a collossal bitch regardless of work status, and just felt like it was time. Today was my first day back.
WORKOUT: 20kg TGU 1/1 x 4
Black and Purple band assisted pullups x 5
perfect pushups x 5
partial pistol 2/2
x for 5 sets
5 min of 16kg snatches=80, gotta get this up significantly.
