.6 is better than 0 :)

That is true! and maybe tomorrow, I will get to see the elusive 159! though I am taking a day off today. Feeling pretty run down. I might still get the energy tonight to go and do Arms at the gym.

It has happened! 159.6 (what's up with this .6 on my scale?) this morning!!

Off to do some gym cardio, as the weather is once again below freezing this morning - but very sunny out! At least all the spring flowers will stay around for all of this week! Even the dogwood's blooms are staying on: a good hot day and a slight breeze will make it look like confetti raining down on my front lawn!

Didn't do Arms yesterday, so that is on the agenda for today. (Took a Dead Sea salt bath instead. Very nice and relaxing - even though I couldn't fully stretch out in my tiny little bathtub/shower combo. I think my quads are feeling a little less sore than usual - though I shall see after my cardio this morning on the elliptical).

After a day off, it was energizing to do a 10K (68 minutes) on the elliptical this morning (level 4) - heartbeat at 135 (so LIT as jungleinthefrunk would say). Arms did a heavy weight set, and some repetitive 12 -15 range sets to get a burn going after the heavy set was done. I did the main exercises first to blast the arms and then the secondary ones: barbell bicep curls and tricep pressdowns first; followed by hammer curls and overhead tricep extensions; then cable single bicep curls at the same time on the Star Trac Tower and Bench dips.

Dinner tonight was a weird combination. My salad mix had gone passed its expiration date (1/2 bag found in the vegetable bin), so I found pieces of slimy-fied lettuce, and threw it in the composter. So I did my usual seiten sausage flashed heated in a pan, and instead of making a salad with 1/2 bag of fancy romaine lettuce salad mix, I had it with 1/2 bag of flash cooked broccoli (pour veggie broth in the pan after taking out the sausages, and as it bubbles away quickly add the broccoli, put on a top, and then turn off the heat) and added the leftover 1/2 box of Crunchy Sprouts from lunchtime. I mixed it up, with no salad vinagerette, and ate it. And I found it really filling. Now with all this satiety I am feeling, what cardio shall I do tonight? It might be too cold to go for a trail walk, so I guess back to the gym for some spinning. . . . -which by the way is getting boring. . . .

Overall, I want over 100 grams of protein (usually Vega Performance Protein Powder (VP), tofu, and seiten - though I have cut back on the tofu and seiten). Carbs and fats are what I am playing with.

I am playing with the edge this week. I wake up to the hungry feeling in the morning. I have a smoothie (fruit and VP) or like today a pear and VP. I feel the energy spread thru my body, and the hunger goes away. Then I do morning cardio accordingly to what the plan for the workout for what bodypart it is for the day.

After that, I am hungry again, and it is a meal of protein and carbs and some fats (stirfry with tofu and veggies). Then an hour before the gym workout, I will be once again hungry, and will do a VP and this week it has been a yam (as my carb to get me thru the workout).

Pre-Workout (Vega) at the gym, workout, then Vega's Accelerator Recovery at the end (I sometimes take it early because I feel really weak and shaky).

Then it is another meal of protein and fat (seiten sausage), and carbs (in the form of salad lately) about an hour after I get home.

If I feel like I want to do some night time cardio, and I feel hungry (but some days I am not hungry- then I go without), then an apple will usually get me thru an hour of spinning. And then I end it all with a VP at night (an hour before bed).

It is because I am on a cardio kick lately. But still not pushing myself if I am tired or sore. Helped me get to 160 for that last week. See what it will do for this week: see if 2lbs is gone by Sunday.
