Jan 3-
I slept horrible all night. Drinking that much water is no conducive to a good night's sleep :shock:

What sleep I got was riddled with horrible bloodridden horror film type nightmares, something I haven't experienced in years.
Got up at 6:30A tired of fighting the not sleeping issue.

B-water, 1/2 Grapefruit

40 minute cardio on treadmill interval training
Abs -crunches
Stretching

S -Protein Shake w/Lite Soy, coffee w/lite soy
L -large baby spinach salad w/brocolli, mushrooms, celery and a little sunflower seeds, 1/4c rice water, green tea

On a good note, my squat rack has arrived! Yay!

Arms are sore, 'tis good.

S-apple
D-ww spaghetti marinara, and a piece of Italian Bread (I know I shouldn't but this was actual bread from Italy that arrive today as a gift. And it was just a taste)

Now off to put together the squat rack. :)

Seasiren, sorry to hear about your stomach troubles. I had some too yesterday. All of a sudden I had an onset of such intense abdominal pain I had to go to the emergency room.

I'm okay today though. Glad you are starting to feel better too. :D

Thank-you!

For those paying attention; I haven't been slacking, I have been forgetting to post lately. I will try to update later today, as I have a new routine. 8)

I'm jumping in today as well. I'm starting with a routine I found while surfing "over35" BB boards. I have to lift a little more intelligently these days as my body is not as forgiving as it used to be. THe routine is called MAX OT very close to the 5X5 routine I think. One body part per day, 5 days in a row. 2-3 exercise per body part, 2-4 sets with 4-6 reps. I like it because it allows me to concentrate on one body part at once.

We believe you, honestly we do.

I can't believe you gave up on your new years routine on 9th January. I thought you woulda persisted for a lil bit longer. :wink:

same thing...

#13 Postby Phoenix » Wed Jan 25, 2006 9:31 am

Hey SeaSiren,
I'm battling the same thing.... TIME. That's why I'm hoping by splitting the routine into 5 parts it allows me to get a w/o done in under an hour. So even if I have to do something else I can still squeeze the w/o in. But we'll see if one w/o per week is enough to stimulate consistent growth.

Hang in there....

I have mine split also, but don't want to workout past 8PM, it tends to keep me awake at night.

I will have to figure something out, time is even more of a problem in the summer....but then again who needs sleep anyway? :wink:

Don't worry, I'll work it out some kind of way, I always do. :)
