Today has been a great day, birthday time!

No workout today, but a lot of food. HEAPS of food. Had a great swim in the ocean which was some exercise.

That's it for today folks.

Around 9.5h sleep.
Such a busy time today. Definitely won' t be anywhere near 9.5 hours tonight.

Food:
Lots of fruit today, a nut bar, two banana soy hemp smoothies, tofu vege stir-fry, brown rice, a big leftover/vege fry-up.

Exercise:
Jogged to a local playground.
Chin-ups: 5-5-5-5-5
Seated dips: 12-12-12-12-12 (! set with my daughter pushing down on my shoulders)
Press-ups (knuckles) 10-10-10-10-10
Bodyweight squats: Three sets of 30, however not very close to each other.
Leg raises: didn't count, just hung around doing leg raises, and the hanging cycle legs (not sure of the proper name heh...)

I do miss the gym though. But I found some plates at an opp shop yesterday so I should have some more home dumbell sets coming through :)

Back at work today, a fair bit of walking but that' s the most physical it got.
My back has been killing me all day - hard to stand up, or do anything. I think it' s from yesterday, running with my daughter on her rip-stick supported by my left arm. Oh well.

A bit of jogging this afternoon. Miss the gym, went in today only to use the shower after work! I should have at least weighed myself when there I couldn't do anything with my back like this though.

Oh yeah, I got a B12 shot yesterday too.

Ate an average amount of food today. Buying at work is expensive, and some of my food went off by my second work meal :/

I found myself with a small amount of time spare before I was due to pick my daughter up from day care today so I darted home, changed into my gym gears and hit the gym.

Warmup rows: setting 12 - 3m - .853km
dumbell rows: 15.5kg 10-10-10
overhead press: 20kg 12-12-9
pullups x6

And that was all I had time for.

My weight was 70.3kg, which is a bit of a bummer, but since starting work I have been getting much more general exercise and I know I've not been keeping up with the eating so much :(

Meal1: Fruit, nuts, seeds
Meal2: Small bean salad with tahini; half wholegrain sandwich; small nut bar; fruit; one small vietnamese vege wrap
Meal3: Toast; banana; soy banana hemp protein smoothie
Meal4: Lentil, vege, tofu, potato curry with brown rice; piece of chocolate cake.

I need to eat more!

I'm very keen to get into a 5x5 routine once I start hitting the gym again.

Weekend, busy times. Ate a lot, and did a few sets of overhead dumbell presses (10kg) and hammer curls, as well as some squats and a few other bits and pieces. I didn't log any of this work though.

Made a decision to get in two hemp protein shakes a day from now.

16 January 2012

First full gym visit in ~10 days.

Weighing in at 71kg exactly - I think the 72kg goal for January is still achievable.

Warmup rows: 3min @ setting 12, .719km
Overhead press 20kg 13-10-9-6 25kg 6
Bentover dumbell rows 20kg 5-5-5 22.5kg 5-5
Squat 40kg 5-5 45kg 5-5-5
dumbell bench press 2x15kg 5-5-5-5-10, last set immediately followed by 10 press-ups (knuckles)
dips 10-7-7
Followed by a couple of sets of leg raises, some asanas and stretching.

As of next Monday I will be regularly hitting the gym and am looking forward to it. I think I definitely want to up some of those weights a bit on a 5x5.

It is impossible to get to the gym at the moment, so I have been trying to make do with pullups, pressups, dips, handstands whnever I get a few moments. I think it is good maintenance at the moment, but that is about it. Between organising my daughter, myself and work there is very little time. Two more days until I start at the gym regularly again.

Still keeping up eating well and with high protein and calorie levels, and overall happy with where I am.

Home workout this morning:
15 mins Kum Nye.
3 sets 20kg deadlifts
3 sets pullups (first two added 2.5kg plate)
3 sets seated dips,
3 sets pressups

Didn't count my reps.

Afternoon: ~3 hrs indoor rock climbing, and my fingers are like rubber!

Can't remember my meals, but have done pretty well, and heaps of fluids.

A good day overall, and now off to dinner.

So the dinner I had at a friends place last night consisted of white pasta with canned pasta sauce. Not what I would usually consume. I bought some tofu and fried it myself so that helped.

Been lazing a bit this morning and have only had a protein shake and two slices of toast thus far. I Must go food shopping today.

Nice little journal, refreshing to see a woman doing chins... and making good work of them as well!

Hit that gym hard girl, although the ocean swims are always a nice addition as well.

Extremely tired today, I had fully intended to hit the gym after work today, when I got there I found I had left my gym shoes at home (if only they allowed bare feet) and once I got home have not felt like doing much at all.

Going to hit the zzzzs pretty soon and get a gym visit in tomorrow.
