Wednesday 7/17/2013

Diet:
Yesterday I didn't eat as much as I have been, mostly because I fell asleep at 6:30pm.

I had a package of potato crusted cod, a large baked potato with some butter, cheese, and a bit of broccoli on top. I have not been measuring foods yet, simply just learning to cut down on it.

Once I get towards a lower weight I know I will need to do so in order for me to be precise with calorie intake. Right now simply feeling the hunger and grumbling belly is enough to prove that I'm eating less since it's something that doesn't usually happen.

Training:
Bench: 225x5, 135x8 for 3 sets. Warmups felt ok, no real pain but not really happy with how much strength I was getting. Shoulder is still hurt, but I did not feel it too bad. I think I'm going to have to get a slingshot so I can actually train bench.

It's really disappointing when I did 275x5 and 280x3 in Oregon before I got hurt and now I struggled to get 225x5. But alas I'll keep going.

BB Rows: 135x5 warmup, 185x3 for 2 sets. Wait what?? My lower back has been feeling stiff and not happy for a while now and for some reason whenever I really do a row or deadlift it's been tender.

I tried out dumbbell incline to see if shoulder would feel any better
DB Incline Bench: 40x8, 75x5 - Shoulder felt alright, doesn't feel too sturdy and it hurt a little on the last few reps on 75, nothing that is worse than bench, but something obviously isn't right.

Comments:

Today went alright other than falling asleep at 6:30. I'm going to attribute that to getting 5 hours of sleep, working out in the gym, and being outside in the heat and getting quite drenched with sweat.

I did my best re hydrating and I fought a headache and feeling like I was going to throw up for a bit, nothing horrible but just noteworthy.

Feeling good about everything, I actually took a couple pictures so I can compare later.

I've been in a slump myself. But hearing you're not alone still doesn't solve anything. You have the strength, keep striving forward.

I feel your pain literally on the shoulder issue Cutty! Just take what your body will give you and protect that injury. A slingshot or bench daddy might be a good idea until you can heal up.

ED: It just means that we have to hold each other accountable.

KD: Yeah I think I'm going to get a slingshot or maybe see if moving to machines and leaving the barbell alone while I stretch the hell out of my shoulder in all directions and try to rehab it better than I have been.

Brad: Thanks man, we'll get it done

Comments:

So far I woke up after sleeping 11 hours and cooked me another large baked tater, 3/4lb of beef and some sour cream and cheese.

Went out and got the grass cut, got this log up to date, getting a new site set up and launched (will drop the link when it's live) and overall things are going well.

I think your diet approach is exactly right.... focusing on reduced portions and eating for the right reason...calorie counting, etc. is too much detail right now. Good call.

That fatigue can be several things. It could be mental. If so, you've already started the habits that will bring back your drive and energy.

It could be adrenal fatigue, natural hormone fluctuation, CNS overload, stress hormones, not enough sun...anything!

The key is to focus on the basics. Clean eating, good sleep, regular but not punishing exercise, walking away from drama, and getting outside and having some fun.

You're on track. Let this be the week you made the changes, started the journey and did the best you could for yourself!
