A trip to Austin and too much work to finish - lame excuses for not working out.

Today is a new day

Being accountable to all y'all was a huge help. I couldn't face the idea of flaking out one more day when y'all are doing so good :)

Another kick ass day! Hooray!

and no tooth pain!!!!

Plus my sister, a fitness trainer, explained the concept of periodization.
1. Conditioning (2 weeks)
2. Hypertrophy (4-6 weeks)
3. Full on strength (1 - 2 weeks)

I will give it a try, but always being careful I don't use too heavy of weights. My muscles work fine but my ligaments act their age (47) :(

today is a perfect day:
Sunny but not hot
Walking the dogs - 2 miles
Bicycle ride - 12 miles
lower body strength training - 1 hour

Last week: walking the dogs most days
strength training: upper body - 2 days
Lots of stretching

New food plan: follow Dr. McDougall guidelines (I ordered 2 books from Amazon that should be here Friday). Until then, make recipes from website. Why? counting calories didn't help weight loss. my weight plateaued at 195 all month. Too many (1/3 or more) calories were coming from fat (nuts, margarine, chocolate, protein bars, etc)

Need more discipline!?!?!? :shock: Are you kidding? You are doing a great job and are an inspiration to me!! Keep up the great work! :wink:


Thanks Sporty! I can't help feeling that I'm failing because I said I would do weight lifting 3 days per week, and all I've managed to do is an average of 2 days per week.

Yesterday I did a shorter session than usual - strictly chest and triceps. Feelin the pain today :lol: Plus, still staying with McDougall - but not losing any weight. I placate myself by thinking I'm gaining muscle which offsets the weight loss :lol:
