Regimen mambo #2
According to today's measurements, we've seen progress. I received my periodic sniping from Laura-the-trainer today about my wanting to weigh myself once a week. Actually, come to think of it, I think I got a finger waggled at me. I haven't had that happen in a while.
Nevertheless, there's good news. While I'm still having issues with food aversions, I'm apparently managing to keep myself in the general range of my calorie and nutrient needs, because several of my measurements have dropped - enough to be statistically significant. (For those of my friends who have taken up the not-so-gentle checks to make sure that I'm remembering to eat, thank you. Your diligent peskiness is noted, appreciated, and seems to be working.)
You know you're in a bit of denial about whether or not your exercise regimen is working when the first thing you think is, "Well, could some of these measurement changes be because I'm in different clothing?"
(Don't worry, I realized how ludicrous that was, right after I thought it.)
As expected, I picked up regimen #2 this morning. In addition to the new weights work, Laura's asked me to make a change to my elliptical workout. I'll still do the same 45 minutes daily, but on a different program that pushes me a little harder in the middle, but enforces warmup and cooldown times.
Not a bad idea, for those of us who tend to hit things flat-out every day.
Weight regimen #2 is as follows:
(EZ curl bar)
|Barbell French press||30||10|
toes pointed straight
toes pointed outward
toes pointed inward)
(balls of feet only, to work calves)
|Inner/Outer thigh sweeps||50||10|
|'Superman' arm/leg raises||20||n/a|
More thoughts on the specifics later. I just wanted to post these before I forgot.
