I unfortunately hurt my back on Friday when deadlifting. I did lots of dancing on New Year's Eve and that hasn't helped matters. It's not horribly painful, but I think it would be wise to hold off lifting weights until it's feeling a bit better. I was supposed to lift weights today, but I'll try Insanity instead.

One more week until we're back to derby practice. This week is supposed to contain cycling, lifting weights, and insanity. There will be some disruption to my schedule as my dad has been over for the holidays and is passing back through London on his way home to NY. So I have dinner with him on Tuesday, which means no cycling to work and no exercise in the evening. Then I'm going to the airport on Wed morning, which means no cycling to work.

Food has been horrendous. Yesterday I spent most of the day with friends eating all sorts of stuff--sandwiches, cake, scones, lemon bars. I'm back to work tomorrow and things will get back to normal then. Today we are having a lazy morning then household chores in the afternoon.

In league news, the Derby News Network did their Best of 2011 poll, and my league was voted most improved and our game against Montreal at the East Region Playoffs was voted bout of the year.

My back isn't feeling too bad, so I'm hoping I'll be able to lift weights toward the end of this week.

Tonight I am having dinner with my dad before he heads home and I doubt I'll get home early enough to do any exercise, but will be able to do some tomorrow evening.

I guess this is really the start of my plan, now that holidays are over. As of this morning I am 71kg (about 156lbs) after having been pretty steady at around 69kg for a while. It's not a massive gain, but it's enough to make weight loss a bit more of a goal for me. I'm not changing any of my plans, but I just need to really stick to eating better and avoiding eating out as much as possible. I'd like to get down to 66kg, a loss of 5kg, but I would still be pretty happy if I could get back to 68/69.

Here's some derby: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7x36T8E ... ature=plcp

This is a game we played in Aug 2011 against the 2010 world champs, Rocky Mountain. As you can see, we lost by a lot, but we were pretty happy with the score given how good they are. I'm in the first jam of this clip. I'm #410 in black.

Wednesday 4 January 2012

Exercise
Insanity Plyo Cardio Circuit

Food
Breakfast: Smoothie (apple, pear, banana, spinach, protein powder (PlantFusion))
Snack: small latte, 1.5 ginger biscuits
Lunch: variety of salads (barley, carrot/coriander, chickpea, broccoli) from Planet Organic food bar, purple corn kale 'chips'
Snack: small Sojade yogurt
Snack: big handful almonds
Dinner: another smoothie, tofu scramble and black beans in wrap

Notes
I'm going to start trying to log my food as I eat so that I have a more accurate record. I'm also going to try to log my food properly every day. Perhaps I'll be less likely to eat crap if I realise I have to log it!

Thursday 5 January 2012

Exercise
Ooops--none! Was supposed to lift weights, but we've put it off to tomorrow.

Food
Breakfast: Usual smoothie
Snack: Small bowl Wheetabix minis with soya milk, cup coffee with soya milk
Lunch: Big salad (romaine, cuke, red onion), cold soba/udon noodles with tahini/soy dipping sauce
Dinner: Tofu scramble & black bean wraps
Snack: A few almonds

Bla bla
Our coaches (who are skaters in the league) are arranging some sessions in other sports for fun cross-training. So it looks like we'll get to do some American Football type drills for footwork and movement, and some martial arts. Another skater will be leading some plyo sessions. I'm pretty excited about this!

Thanks! I'm looking forward to getting back to derby practice, which will mean a step back up in my exercise!

My bike is now in the shop getting new brakes put on. I won't get it back until Monday evening or Tuesday. I'm hoping it's Mon evening so I don't need to miss too many days of cycling.

Today will most likely be a rest day. Saturday is supposed to be my rest day, but because I've had other unplanned rest days this week, I'm considering doing Insanity. We'll see. It's back to derby practice tomorrow, with a 3-hr scrimmage session.

Yep a derby freshie :) I should have finished by now but I tore a ligament in my knee half way through freshmeat which set me back and then 3 weeks ago I dislocated my knee. This year though I will finish freshmeat lol!
