Tuesday ended up not being so great after the Monday that I had... first of all, my body really hurt after my circuit training on Monday so I didn't get up and go to the gym. I chose to rest a bit. I think that I am going to go to the gym Monday, Wednesday … Continue reading Week 18 – Day 2: And Then This Happened…
It can be difficult to look at things that have happened in the past and try to move on. Especially if those things have happened recently. It is a lot easier to wallow in defeat than it is to pick yourself up, brush yourself off and try to keep going. That is what I want … Continue reading Week 18 – Day 1: A New Beginning
Here's the recap for week 17 of my Project 7x52! Exercise: A- I did actually exercise all 7 days this week even though I didn't head out and go to the gym on the weekend. Technically, that checks the box. However, dinging it a bit since I decided to actively skip out on the gym. … Continue reading Project 7X52: Week 17 Recap
Sunday was just about the perfect way to wrap up the rest of the weekend... weakly. I didn't get my steps in, I didn't really try to get my steps in (I did try for about 30 minutes plus walking around the store shopping, but...), I didn't try to eat well, and I sort of … Continue reading Week 17 – Day 7: Weak!
Not going into detail, but it wasn't the best weekend which was completely my fault and due to my choices. You always have to remember that we are the choices we make. And when we make those choices, we need to live with them. That doesn't mean that we can't push through and find strength … Continue reading Week 17 – Days 5 & 6: Choices
Thursday was another crazy, busy day. There is a lot happening at work and I feel like I almost did nothing this week! We send out weekly PPP (Progress, Plan and Problems) reports and I swear it was like... "I was in meetings!" and that was about it. As far as exercise went, I decided … Continue reading Week 17 – Day 4: Feels Good!
So as I said yesterday, I was told by the doctor that I could start lifting again. I didn't mention to them that I have been doing everything but chest, back and shoulders... but I'll let that slide. So Wednesday I decided to go really light and try out what I could do. And I … Continue reading Week 17 – Day 3: Chest Day
Tuesday was the beginning of the stressful part of the week. Lots of meetings, side-by-sides, lots of work to do, and even a doctor's visit (which really wasn't bad, but still added to it). I handled it rather well I thought and didn't eat anything extra, didn't drink, didn't go crazy. I just exercised, worked … Continue reading Week 17 – Day 2: Doctor’s Visit
Last week I was able to successfully break my deadlift record. I decided on Monday to make an effort to see what I could do with my squat goal. The heaviest I had been able to squat was 385 pounds and I wanted to break that. I took the same mindset that I did with … Continue reading Week 17 – Day 1: Another New Record
Here's the recap for week 16 of my Project 7x52! Exercise: A I hit all 7 days with some sort of activity, was able to lift and run this week, but also had some setbacks. Steps: B+ I got over 10,000 steps only six days this week and totaled 91,263 for the week which is … Continue reading Project 7×52: Week 16 Recap
