Okay, Friday was spent at home baking and not working out, check out the food blog in my signature to see what I was up to . . .

15 Nov - Saturday it was my birthday today. Now I am officially 29, so I went climbing even though it was cold out (in the 50's). I was setting up to rappel after cleaning up the very first route of the day and I started shivering! Okay, one route was good, right? After getting back on the ground decided to go hike around instead :D . Went home after that and gorged on b-day cake (see signature link!)

16 Nov - Sunday Okay, okay. I am against violence but I do believe in self defense and have no problem with guns in general (we can debate this elsewhere if you wish), but I went out shooting. I don't own a gun, but my climbing partner has a few and let me use them. We went out to a range and were there for over 5 hours! My traps are SO sore today from it, had a lot of fun learning the proper/safe use of guns, how they work, etc :) .

Thanks bodybag :D

17 Nov 08 - Mon
Stayed home today with a bit of a stomach bug in the am (which I caught from my dad, he had been sick on Saturday), but by the afternoon I was feeling better so I dusted off my meager weights at home that total 42.5 lbs, went out in the backyard and did lunge-laps with my brother. Ouch, I think the most I managed at once was like 50 paces. Did 3 sets, and had warmed-up with a set of 8 each leg pistol squats.

Thanks LocalBrada, but do you mean I'm one year older or younger? :)

18 Nov 2008 - Tues
Cardio-licious day, bumped my bench day to tomorrow so I can meet-up with Phil again to lift :) . Started with 10 minutes on the rowing machine, then finished with 41.5 minutes on the eliptical machine. Went to my usual goal of 600 calories. Was greatful for the day away from lifting again, I think I may have strained my trap a bit from Sunday's fun :oops: .

I'm one year younger, which is why I blushed. :oops:

I checked out your cake blog, dang you sure can cook. I don't think I could stick to my meal routine if I had any of those meal options. :popcorn:

I've got to keep mine simple and routine or I'll fall off my diet faster than you can set an egg timer.

Man, don't talk to me about diet! I've been eating cakes and homemade apple pie all weekend :oops: - seriously, its because I live at home. I never ate this bad on my own! Darn mother who 1) convinces me to make my b-day cakes and 2) makes awesome pie and keeps me stocked up on So Delicious vegan ice cream. Dammit!

@Bodybag - don't worry, I blame my mom for a lot of things ;) (jk! only some things. . . )

@Robert - yeah, totally should, but I have no idea how soon you have free time (next month, next year?). I'll be around through the holidays, but the weather will suck then (unless you like to ski). Let me know! :)

19 Nov 08 - Wed - Wahoo! Another workout with Philliped :)

Bench: 10 x bar, 10 x 75 lbs, 10 x 85 lbs, 10 x 95 lbs, 6 x 105 lbs

Push-ups: 3 x 15 x bw

CGBP: 10 x bar, 10 x 65 lbs, 10 x 75 lbs

Chins: 4 x bw

Hammer Curls: 10 x 15's, 10 x 12's, 10 x 12's

*stretching

Ya, met with Phil at my gym this time. Workout went really quickly, I don't think I rest as long with someone else around :) . Man, we need to hang out socially more often (Phil is awesome 8) ) so we can focus more when we workout ;) (just kidding, a little . . .).

After (or while?) doing push-ups, we decided we need to have a push-up challenge :twisted: ! I'll post this elsewhere as well, but starting next Monday, Nov. 24th until Friday Nov. 28th we are going to see how many push-ups we can do. Full ones of course with proper form, but it will be on our honor. It will be legendary!

Had to get lunch afterwards (must feed growing muscles), we went to Sage's cafe this time. This photo looked okay on my little camera screen, but now up close we both have our eyes half shut! Oh well :) :

19 Nov supplemental:
Later in the afternoon, after meeting up with Phil, went out climbing in Little Cottonwood Canyon and I led my first real trad climb! It was a 5.6, but that was good so I could focus more on the placement of gear and less on the technique of the climb. It was awesome :) . After that, did a tricky 5.9 on toprope that was all friction and mantels! Ouch. Climbed until the sun had gone down :D

22 Nov 08 - Saturday
Hiking today in Bells Canyon near Salt Lake City, probably out for 5 hours total even though it felt like longer! It was a lovely day, but much of the trail was iced over and had to go through some snow, although it wasn't ever deeper than a foot or two (1/2 meter tops for you metric peeps).

View up canyon from start of trail:

24 Nov 08 - Mon

10 pistol squat warm-up
Leg Press: 15 x 90 lbs, 12 x 140 lbs, 12 x 180 lbs, 12 x 230 lbs, 10 x 270 lbs

"Hack Slide" machine: 8 x 90 lbs, 8 x 90 lbs, 10 x 90 lbs - whoa, super hard machine, mimics front squats and am I ever weak for that movement!

Legpress Calf: 20 x 90 lbs, 16 x 90 lbs, 16 x 90 lbs

SLDL: 10 x 95 lbs, 10 x 95 lbs, 10 x 115 lbs

Plank: 3 min

Push-ups: 15, 15, 15, 15

*stretching

Okay, wrist is really bad today so squatting was totally out (nothing that requires any sort of wrist bend!). Oh well, that "hack machine" really kicked my arse anyway. Taped up my wrist really good to do the SLDL's. In one aspect, it was a frustrating day, but when I stop to think about it the fact that I can workout at all is amazing and makes me smile :) .

Oh, and with the push-ups from throughout the day plus what I did at the gym, I'm at 200 so far for the competition and it is only 3:40 pm :D
