VG...congratulations on a return to shoulder work! And glad your wife can tell a diff.
Not so quick
The shoulder never got back to 100% but it it had stopped hurting. Yesterday I did some machines and it did not feel right. I mean it was not as bad as when I got injured but it's just not right! Maybe 85% normal but when I push it then it goes down to say 70%.
Anyway today I was pissed off so just skipped the gym and took out my bike and went for a long ride. Rode for 1hr 20min. The bike speedometer battery died so need to replace it. Plus need to replace the battery for my Polar heart monitor.
Last summer I was doing 60km/30-40miles on each outing (not regularly)...so maybe I will start doing that regularly. Alternate between gym cardio and outdoor bike cardio.
What leads you to believe you're eating too many fruits? Too many for what: your budget, your calorie limit, your...uh...bathroom preferences?
I don't know about you, but I tend to have all-or-nothing thinking....
But maybe that's just me...
Yeah I am like that as well. If I suck a candy then I start thinking about the sugar
Are you doing any work on the mental aspect of muscling up and slimming down? I know I need to do more on that, but that's the part I usually blow off.
What the hell is that?
It's hard enough staying disciplined now you want me to do some mental stuff?
Hey Veggie Guy...
Just thought I would chime in as I was thinking about starting my own training blog. I thought I would share since I think we have similar goals and weight issues.
Chime away and feel free to chime again
You are definitely working out harder than me and have the added bonus of being younger. I'm turning 38 this year.
Trying to anyway
Motivation is not a big problem currently as I want to get fit and then super fit!
Biggest problem seems to be silly things that come in the way like this mini shoulder injury. It's nothing serious but it's preventing me from working my upper body properly! Then this morning my throat got all painful...maybe infection...hurts to swallow. My knees are not the best either so all these small niggles eat you away. As if staying motivated is not hard enough!
I definitely think at the rate you're going, 3-6 months is realistic. Best of luck.
6months if I am lucky!
