Well, my rest day turned into 3 hours of yard work and a long walk with the family.

Lower body tomorrow. Nothing like a little pain to look forward to! :wink:

Hey JW,

You must be so proud knowing that you are guuiding your whole family towards a healthier lifestyle. Good healthy (and compassionate) food, great workouts from what I have read in this thread, positive attitude, etc.

Keep up the great work!

Also, i hope you realize that you are instilling future healthy exercise habits for your kids as well. You are a great role model for them, and they will follow in your footsteps of healthy living. 8) That's gotta be an awesome feeling.

the 3rd leg was grueling ...especially trying to keep up with my son on the trails. Got some serious air and no wipeouts!!!! It's all good! :D

30 minutes cardio this morning
Nordic Track

A little sore in the upperbody this morning. Funny how the discomfort sometimes shows up the day following a workout.

The weather is getting much nicer now and it's both good and bad.

On the positive, I get much more sunlight, fresh air and exercise

On the negative, warmer weather is SLURPEE SEASON!!!!
If you don't know what these are... they are a frozen drink sold at 7-11 stores (also other convenience stores under different names)
basically they are frozen soft drinks with a smooth icy texture.
For some reason, Winnipeg consistently wins awards for the highest slurpee consumption in North America.

I have to admit, even when I'm watching my diet I still crave these things on a hot day.

went for a run to the playground with the kids and shot some hoops tonight. And a bit of soccer (oh how I miss that game)
It was such a nice evening, I just couldn't resist.
Hopefully I'll have energy tomorrow morning for a good lowerbody workout :D

3x6 squats 100lb
3x12 calf raises 170lb
3x12 lunges w/ 45lb dumbells
3x6 deadlifts 200lb
5 min. abs - crunches & stretches

upped some of my weights today.
went pretty well except squats just do a number on my poor ankle.
might have to look at an alternative excercise.

still noticing progress but I'm still a bit of a bone rack
I have to whittle the waist down a bit to gain better proportion.
I'll get there ................in time..................

Today is one of those "listen to your body" days
woke up feeling tired and sore.
was thinking about 30 minutes of cardio but thought a rest day would do me better today. (tomorrow is upperbody so the rest might come in handy)
I'll probably go for a nice walk today just to burn a few calories.

I have to admit, these logs are helpful when thinking about rest days.
The fatigue and soreness make sense when you look back.

Oh to be able to recover like I used to.......

3x8 shoulder press 80lbs
3x12 shrugs 125 lbs
3x6 curls 70lbs
3x6 bent over rows 125 lbs

still hoping to increase my bench press weight but it's still a struggle to complete the 3rd set.
I guess it will come eventually
