Week Summary, 22-28 January 2012

Exercise
Exercise wasn't too bad. I cycled a couple of days. The misses were not lifting weights on Monday due to rec league and not doing plyo on Wednesday.

Food
Eating was still not good, but not quite as bad as last week.

Upcoming week
As far as I can see, I don't have any reason to miss any of my exercise this week. I think my eating will be better this coming week as my partner is also trying to eat better so won't be suggesting we go out to eat as much. My partner has never had to worry about weight as she's been incredibly steady around 50kg/110lbs for the 10 years I've known her, no matter what she eats. But she wants to eat more healthily.

EDIT: Just remembered that I have a team gathering on Wed, which means that I won't have chance to exercise that day.

My league made one of those sh*t X say videos. I have a small (but pivotal) role as "Deathcake".

Tuesday 31 Jan 2012

Exercise
Cycled to work to practice to home (13mi)

Food
Breakfast: usual smoothie
Snack: tea, half a Nakd cocoa mint bar
Lunch: (from health food store food bar) chickpea/veg casserole with brown rice, mint choc chip 'cheesecake'
Snack: Viana Picknicker (snack sausage-y thing)
Dinner: smokey split pea soup with quinoa
Post-practice: chips and hummus

Notes
I went to practice but watched rather than skating. I'm going to be on the travel team selection committee this weekend. I usually am not, as it's primarily coaches who do it, but as a team captain I am filling in for a coach. So I spent the practice watching others skate and thinking about the upcoming selection.

I need to cut down on the crap like the 'cheesecake' and chips.

Wednesday 1 Feb 2012

Exercise
None :(

Food
Breakfast: usual smoothie
Snack: coffee, half a Nakd cocoa mint bar
Lunch: pakora, cabbage dish, veg curry, rice
Snack: tea, half a Nakd cocoa mint bar
Dinner: smokey split pea soup, lots of snacking

Notes
I have a team get-together right after work today somewhere across London, so no chance to do plyo or other exercise today. Everyone brought a bunch of snacky things like hummus, dips, bread, chips, Indian starters, salads, etc., and I ate a bunch of them! My teammates are so nice--they always make sure to get some vegan stuff and let me know what is and isn't vegan.

I've got two bouts this weekend--a public one with my league team against a Welsh league on Saturday, and a closed-door one with the A team against another league on Sunday. I'm a bit nervous about the first one (I'm captain) and excited about the second.

Thursday 2 Feb 2012

Exercise
None, again :(

Food
Breakfast: mini choc chip weetabix
Snack: coffee, ginger choc slice
Lunch: sausage rolls, lentil/veg soup
Dinner: spaghetti 'bolognese'

Notes
I didn't make it to practice because I had lots of work to get done. Practice would take me out of the house from 6:30-11pm and I needed at least some of that time for working. I'm not happy about it, especially because I have the bouts coming up this weekend and would like to do some skating in the run up. Oh well.

Friday 3 Feb 2012

Exercise
None!

Food
Breakfast: usual smoothie
Snack: flat white, half cocoa mint Nakd bar
Lunch: satay tofu/veg
Snack: tea, whole cocoa mint Nakd bar
Dinner: leftover spag bol, little bit lentil/veg soup

Notes
Today sucks! Got lots of work to get done and also had to spend a fair amount of time doing derby stuff for the bout tomorrow. It's 7pm the night before a bout (for which I am captain) and I'm still at work, missing a group dinner I was supposed to go to, with no end in sight. I feel like I'm not going to be able to give the proper thought and preparation to my captaining tomorrow.

I'd put off my work to the weekend, but it's going to be a busy one. The bout tomorrow will take up from around noon to close to midnight (we have to do set up, run the thing, and shut down so it's a full day). Then on Sunday I have to be on the other side of London for an 11am team selection meeting then go straight to a closed door bout in the afternoon and get home around 8:30pm. Will probably have to do some work Sunday night anyway as I know I can't get it all done now.

I feel very distracted and not in a good frame of mind for a pre-bout night.

It's been a busy weekend, so I'm not going to post my exercise and food details for it.

Had a public bout yesterday, my league team (of which I'm captain) versus a team from Cardiff. It was a tough game, but we won, so I'm pretty happy about that.

Today we had a closed door bout, our A travel team versus a league from the Midlands. It was pretty much expected we'd win, and we did, by loads. But it was fun and a good chance to work on teamwork.

Tired now and I have to do some work!

Monday 6 Feb 2012

Exercise
About 1.5 hrs agility and strength training

Food
Breakfast: beans, toast, LM sausage
Lunch: Indian buffet stuff
Snack: tea, cocoa mint Nakd bar
Dinner: mostly bread and hummus
Post-exercise: protein shake

Notes
We (a group of rollergirls) went to our first session with Dynamic Sports Academy. It was an intro session so a little easier than it will be in the future I'm sure. It was 2 hours long, and we rotated through 3 different sesssions: 1/2hr eye/vision training, 1/2hr speed, agility, and quickness training, and 1hr strength training. The strength really focused on legs and core, as that's what's most important for us. We did lots of squats (no weight--most people in the group don't lift) and some lunges and hamstring stuff and some abs. It was good. I'm excited about adding the weights as I don't have access to a squat rack and do only front squats at home. They have 3 squat racks.

We had about 30 people there, and we had the place just to our group. The coaches were great. It's a really amazing deal we got with them, and I'm excited to see how it progresses.

Hello my friend!

How are things?

I also had Indian food today, probably my favorite of all foods. Indian and Thai are tied for my top picks.

Hope all is awesome. Hope to hangout again in the future as our travels cause us to cross paths. I'm on the road right now and continue to meet up with more and more forum members. It's really fun. You have some of the best laughs and smiles though!

All the best. Have fun!

Robert

Tuesday 7 Feb 2012

Exercise
a bit of skating

Food
Breakfast: usual smoothie
Snack: coffee, bread and hummus
Lunch: food from health food store hot bar
Snack: veggie snack sausage thing
Dinner: Amy's daiya mac n cheese
Snack (post practice): small amount of mini choc chip weetabix

Notes
It was a frustrating practice. I had a meeting before it, but due to unforeseen complication we decided we couldn't do what we were there to do. I was a bit late, but went to skate. After half an hour, we were all called together again and spent the next hour talking about whether or not we could do it (we ended on no). So I missed most of the practice.

I've been a wuss and haven't been cycling as it's been quite cold, and occasionally snowing, here in London. I hope it warms up soon or I'm just going to have to suck it up and cycle anyway.
