3 weeks before going abck to work

2nd day after my circuit trial and shitey are things tender. Strange, after 30, DOMS seems to take longer to kick in. Yesterday I was a wee bit tender and today is much moreso. In years past, the tenderness was always worse the day after that initial workout.

Weigh in was 87.5kg. I’m sick of converting to pounds for a blog that no one reads but me so stiff.

Might try the circuit again tomorrow. Eating properly today refried beans, lentils and frozen vegies.


Day 9 of the 4-Week Challenge

Now, this is what I like to see. A day of bad food munchin’ and a net decrease in weight. Today 182.82 lbs.

Wasn’t too hard to resume the usual routine and I spent most of the evening preparing the beefy, beany stew and the lentils. Grabbed some more tins of mixed beans, re-fried beans etc also another packet of frozen green beans. Should keep me going till pay day.

The wife felt compelled to return to the Mexican restaurant for more tacos, although I couldn’t help her this time. Crazy pregnant chicks…

I am gonna pack some gym clothes this week and get at least one gym session in. I know once I start up and feel that soreness, it gets me eager for more. Some people hate DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), however I have always enjoyed the sensation. It makes me feel like I have some muscle; you can feel bits you haven’t felt for a while and it feels good to stretch it out.

If we take this morning’s weigh-in, then since I began, I have dropped almost 7.5 lbs. Something is obviously working. I would hate to see what happens when I actually throw in some regular cardio…

My interim target is about 176 lbs. From that point, I will be really trying to maintain the weight or even increase it with the focus on shifting the lean tissue/fat ratio. 10% body fat would be an excellent place to be, but in 4 weeks? I don’t think so. Maybe 6 months ….
