My outfits for lifting weights have recently been unflattering and embarrassing, so I haven't taken photos on weights days (as I work out at home, I throw on any old thing). But I took a couple yesterday, as I was getting ready for practice. In the second I was trying to get my shoulder/trap.

I'm digging up some past photos, but I think I'll put them in the progress photos forum.

Wednesday 18 Jan 2012

Exercise
2-hour into judo session

Food
Breakfast: my usual smoothie
Lunch: food from health food store hot bar: chickpea curry, some veg thing, brown rice
Dinner (pre-judo): potato/spinach wrap
Post-judo: grilled cheeze sandwich

Notes
I've been really bad about cooking this week. I've done barely any so have eaten out for lunch a lot.

I just realised that I have practice on Friday so it actually works out fine for tomorrow to be my rest day for the week (due to it being my partner's birthday I have it off from work and everything else).

Week Summary, 15-21 January 2012

Exercise
Exercise was OK. I didn't cycle much at all, but did other forms of exercise most days. The major unplanned miss was not lifting weights yesterday (Saturday).

Food
Eating was pretty much terrible. I didn't do any cooking so did a lot of eating out for lunch. In addition, it was my partner's birthday on Thursday, so we went out and ate a whole lot on both Thurs and Sat.

Upcoming week
Definitely need to stick to my exercise better. I don't have any plans that will interfere with that, except that I have to lead rec league practice on Monday evening so can't lift weights. I need to be much, much better about food. I do have a few dishes planned and have the groceries needed to make it, so I hope it will go better.

Monday 23 Jan 2012

Exercise
None--had to coach rec league session

Food
Breakfast: my usual smoothie
Lunch: lentil stew from veg cafe
Snack: tea and Nakd mint chic bar
Dinner: broccoli & chickpea, veggie dog, cupcake

Notes
Weighed myself this morning. On the low side of 70kg. I'm amazed I didn't gain weight after all the eating I did thus past week.

Food was going ok today then just as I was eating my homemade broccoli chickpea dish my partner turned up with a veggie dog and cupcake for me.

I should have lifted weights but I was on the rota to lead a rec league session. It's their all scrimmage session so I did off skates bench coaching and didn't do any skating myself.

Wednesday 25 January 2012

Exercise
Cycled to work and back

Food
Breakfast: my usual smoothie
Snack: tea and half a Nakd cocoa mint bar
Lunch: hummus, pita, cuke, red pepper; a few chips (fries)
Snack: tea and the other half of the Nakd cocoa mint bar
Dinner: big salad, a pasta dish I threw together

Notes
I was thinking of doing some other exercise once I got home, but my legs were so tired when cycling, both this morning and this evening, that I decided to leave it at that. I think they are a bit tired out from yesterday.

We've heard that we are going to start our crosstraining session on 6 Feb. I can't wait! It's with people called Dynamic Sports Academy and we get 2-hour sessions working on weight training and strength/quickness/agility training. I think we'll also do some mental stuff. I'm really looking forward to it.

Friday 27 Jan 2012

Exercise
None

Food
Breakfast: Usual smoothie
Snack: latte
Lunch: teriyaki tofu with bak choi and soba
Snack: hot soya almond drink
Dinner: spring rolls, ma po tofu (takeaway), brownie

Notes
We had some friends over last night and we all ordered takeaway together. I also worked at home so didn't cycle. It doesn't matter too much as Friday is supposed to be my rest day, but I didn't do any exercise on Monday due to leading rec league, so was hoping to squeeze in some exercise today.

Saturday 28 Jan 2012

Exercise
Lifted weights (all weights in pounds):
Cleans: 74x5, 79x5, 84x5
Overhead Press: 69 x3/3/3
Deadlift: 158 x6

Food
Breakfast: tea, brownie, mini weetabix
Snack: kettle corn
Lunch: noodle salad (romaine, cold soba, carrot, cuke, red onion, peanutty dressing)
Dinner: vegan Chinese

Notes
My partner had to work today but I wanted to make sure to lift weights anyway. As I was on my own, I did things that I didn't need a spotter for. I was pretty happy with the cleans--they felt smooth and easy. Not so happy with the overhead press. I feel like that amount of weight shouldn't be so hard.
