Shifting focus... again...

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

SO!

Things are changing! Yeah -- time to figure out where I'm going with all this... anyway.

I just found out yesterday that my gym membership ends on Saturday. YEAH. I had been looking online at the University Rec Center site trying to find that information -- it's listed nowhere. I get the email newsletter for MAY and it says - hey, by the way, memberships expire the 8th. :P We were thinking it went through the END of May... so I was planning to go gymless for a month maybe.

Now I'm faced with a dilemma -- try to sign up at a local gym like Planet Fitness which is cheap and has no contract OR - use that same money to invest in something that I can continue working with after our move in case I don't end up getting back into a gym membership right away.

I've been mesmerized by a video ZORBS13 posted on her facebook of someone doing an ab workout with a suspension training system (in this case with the TRX system) and I finally looked up the site, expecting this joker to maybe cost $40 and saw that the package with the straps costs $189.99!!!!!!!!!! And that's without the door attachment! Which is another $25!!!! HOLY COW!!!!!!!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME, PEOPLE?!??!?!

So I considered making my own.... and then I saw a review that compared TRX, Freestyle Trainer, and homemade.... and the Freestyle trainer looks like a winner!!! Similar system, from a Ring Training website - mostly selling at home gymnastics ring style stuff - but the freestyle trainer has the handles and loops just like TRX at the ends so you can stick your feet in and whatnot.

The only downside being I'll have to find a park w/ a swingset or something to use it at, it doesn't really do a door attachment like other kinds where you hook it over, but you can slip it over a pullup door attachment (which I THINK my brother in law has which I might be able to use when we move?) If not I can always find a swingset or park pullup bar station or SOMETHING to use. SO!

That costs $50. The local gym membership would be $29 startup, $10 per month - so.... $50 roughly for the two months I'd be doing it.

As much as I love NROL4W and would like to keep doing it, I think the other thing might be more beneficial in the longrun... If I can switch the connector at the top to function w/ a carabiner system I might be able to use it with a standard door attachment thingie from the TRX system since they sell those separately anyway, later on. I think I'd prefer purchasing something than making my own if the difference in cost is $20-25. Ya know?

ANYWAY.

This is what's on my mind right now. Things are going to be tight when we move. But I still think it's the right thing to do.

THE RELAY!

I did 50 laps - .3 miles per, for 15 total miles. My hamstrings were SO SORE - the very first round had me hurting. But because of the cause, I really couldn't stop myself from continuing like I wanted to. so I did 3 mile bouts (10 laps at a time). In between I got SO COLD because of the WIND - I was huddled in a blanket. hahaha.

CLOVERR1 did 150 laps by going allll night - for a total of 45 miles. YEAH! Around a .3 mile loop! INSANE! And AWESOME!

There was a contingent of fleet feet chicks in light teal outfits - tops w/ a team logo on front, fleet feet on the back, and matching running skirts. I think one of them actually went all night, too! Not sure how she matched up - I saw her walking some laps, but mostly she was running - whereas CLOVERR1 kept up a more running style gait, sometimes a bit slower, but never REALLY switching to walking.... ya know? Anyway. I think both of us wanted to kill those chicks! HAHAHAHA.

And also I wanted to be one of them. Speaking of which, I went to Fleet Feet the day after it ended... so like not Saturday but Sunday - and tried on the shoes I'm probably ordering on mega clearance from runnignwarehouse ($39.88!!!!!) and bought some balega enduro socks (have heard rave reviews times a million on these, including from a worker at the store who popped of his shoe to show me he was wearing them RIGHT NOW haha), some mint chocolate gu(HECKYES), and talked to a couple employees about possibly working there when we move and definitely running with a group at some point.

The main guy we talked to about the job was like - YOU WILL LOVE IT. haha. basically. So.... I'm applying. The downside is that the place is far from my in-laws place and even if I can get a full time position, it's likely to be short on hours (like 33hrs vs 40) BUT... the guy DID say it pays well for what it is... so.... whatever that means. It's worth a shot.

We drove past a few gyms that were either closed or only open to members w/ keypad/keys - at least I know where they are. My brother in law is really keen on me working at the new crossfit place that opened up - I'm not sure they want someone with zero gym qualifications except for personal workout history, but heck. You never know till you try!

So we know when we're moving now, the exact days pretty much, and so at the end of this month I'll be letting work know.

    Sounds like a great time at the relay. I can't imagine 45 miles.

I hope you find what you are looking for on the exercise equipment and job hunt. I know I always worry about the exercise equipment dropping a bunch of money and then have it be not what I want.

    Way to go on the relay! I am impressed, especially being sore and all.
I would not quit my gym-not because I'm not disclipined, but because I just love it- I'd miss it and be mad, I think. But, it might be a great opportunity to try things that you just don't try at the gym- what about P90X or something? You might be able to borrow it from someone? ( I don't have it, but just a thought) As for the TRX straps- I'm not surprised at all- you are paying for the novelty and the brand and yadayada. I would love to try them out myself, but I won't pay some really high price for a session- I'm too cheap. Plus, if I get addicted, then I'll want to go all the time and that gets to pricy. Laura teaches a class with them at her YMCA, but she lives 2 hours away-LOL- and my YMCA is just always out of money for extra stuff...
Shifting focus is never a bad thing- too bad you don't have enough dumbbells at home to finish NROLW -- what about just purchasing a few used somewhere?

Not sure what to say about the gym vs. no gym situation. I dropped my gym membership last fall after months of not using it. I have a bunch of stuff I can do at home (light weights, stability ball, resistance bands, Wii Fit, EA Sports Active on the Wii, DVDs, etc.), so I haven't missed it really.

Good luck on your move! I hope you get the Fleet Feet job that you want!

    I had thought about canceling my gym membership since the weather is getting so nice- but then we had a big wind storm and I started thinking- what will I do when the weather is crappy or once it gets too hot? So I decided to keep it (it's only $10 a month). Now listening to your 'what to do with no membership' dilemma- I'm glad I did decide to keep it!
WOOHOO on the 15 miles! Way to go!
I've got my fingers crossed for you for the Fleet Feet job. What I'm thinking is if they give an employee discount what you save with that might make up for the reduced hours :)

    i haven't tried the trx thing but lots of trainers are using them at the gym to train people. $189 though for some straps???? i don't know what to say about the gym or not. i have liked doing both and did fine at home but i am back to loving the gym.

great job on the relay. 15 miles is so great! group running would be a nice change. it just makes some of your runs easier so you forget about the miles.

I hope that the Fleet works out, I think it would be fun to be able to run with your co-workers! Ah, the gym... I have been doing MTC at a park with my body ball, and 2 sets of weights: 5lbs and 10lbs and that is all! We improvise a bit to make up for not having the proper equipment, but it works!

Off to go hike, I have to make up for the fact that I didn't do day9 due to my lower back :( Congrats again on your mileage, it is so cool that you did this! My wishes for your move are that you find happiness in all areas of you life there!
PS, how was the running skirt?

    Geez, your brain is LOADED full of stuff!

I'd sign up for the gym, but that's me. Then, I'd just run outside all the time and use the gym as a shower because why in the WORLD would I work out INSIDE on ANY kind of equipment at any location when I have tennis shoes and a beautiful trail outside.

That would be what landed me in osteoporosis territory, so don't listen to me!

So from this blog it looks like you're a) looking for a new workout home/situation, b) looking for a job? and c) moving?

Think you could pile on a little more there maybe?

How far away are you moving from where you live now? Sorry I haven't been keeping up. I'm just now getting back on SparkPeople a little more regularly.

Funny Compliment!

Thursday, April 29, 2010

I was in the break room a bit ago eating my snack - an orange and a skim mozzarella cheese stick - and my coworkers says,

"Dana, you're gonna live like.. 50 years longer than me!"

HAHA. He's like - we work out about the same, but you're always eating oranges and oatmeal and stuff and I'm eating all this crappy fast food, drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes....

I was like,"HAHAHA Thanks, I try!" :)

On the other hand -- it does make me a little sad that someone who is young and has vigor for life and commitment to exercise would turn around and treat their body so poorly in other aspects...

    I know people who love certain vicces and are willing to be virtuous in almost all other aspects of their lives so that they can continue their vice. Choices, I guess. Frankly, I wouldn't want to live 50 more years if it meant never again eating a Wawa hoagie or Giuseppe's pizza, bur I am willing to eat them rarely for the chance to enjoy many other things. The trick is finding that balance ... which I'm still working on! LOL

    There was something about this on the news the other night--there was a study of a group of people over a 20 year period which concluded that bad habits (smoking, drinking 3+ alcoholic drinks per day, inactivity, and poor diet) age a person by 12 years. I could do a lot with 12 years!

    Smoking is huge addiction- I still can't believe my DH quit and is staying strong... it's finally getting a bit better!

As for treating yourself right, I am a big offender myself. I don't know WHY I do it per se--- it's complicated--- but at least I feel like I'm trying! ( you know I don't eat fast food, just too much sugar and too much food at times)

Bad habits and addictions are hard to break- one big thing I have learned that the longer we engage in them, the harder they are to break- of course this is a generalization.

You are a great role model to him and by giving you this compliment, he really wants to be more like you in that way. He might just not have reached his turnaround point!

SO SORE!

Thursday, April 29, 2010

HOLY CRAP.

Wow. um -- those single leg dumbbell deadlifts yesterday made my hamstrings TOAST. Tight achy toast... hahaha. Rowing was a painful endeavor this morning -- as was the 2 miles I decided to do afterward. I burned around 400 total calories this morning but they were TOUGH.

See -- rowing gets my hamstrings anyway -- and part of the stroke requires being bent over arms outstretched over your toes (or ankles or whatever) and I was NOT reaching very far today! HAHA. It felt so awkward.

And my run felt awkward and painful as well... *sigh* I'm feeling bummed about how my last two runs have gone.... but! They're just two runs!!! In the middle of very otherwise physically demanding weeks -- so I'm counting on that meaning this is not the start of a downward spiral, but yet the result of being worn out in other areas and things will get better once things get more balanced again.

In any case! Due to the excessive soreness today I'm making the executive decision NOT to do any ST tomorrow - I might do some yoga and some foam rolling to loosen up, but I want these muscles to recover as much as possible before tomorrow evening.

The other cool thing about the relay is that I get to rest as much as I need to throughout the night -- for ME (unlike CLOVERR1) it is NOT going to be an attempt at a 12hr run. :) Maybe someday I will be that hoss. I'm trying to take off as much pressure as possible regarding the running - walk as much as I want, rest as much as I want, but run as much as I can.

My sweet DH went and purchased some Clif and Tiger's Milk Bars for me yesterday. ♥ awwww haha :D I'm really looking forward to this event. And to not going to work tomorrow. BWAHAHA.

Getting Back on Track!

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Not that I was completely derailed or anything, just feeling a bit meandering. HAHA.

Got plenty of sleep last night and got up changed STRAIGHT into my gym clothes to help prevent too much procrastination and headed to the gym. I had to cut the workout short a bit -- said I might cut the Body Weight matrix, but I also cut a rep each of plank and reverse wood choppers -- and it all went pretty well except for the Dumbbell one arm overhead squat thingie.

The instructions say to have a lighter weight overhead and a weight twice as heavy goes down between the legs as you squat. Well I just don't understand how to keep the weight over my shoulder while I'm leaning forward as I squat. I mean I know you stay as upright as possibly, but your body is still going to fold forward as you squat and that just does not equate w/ me shoulder. My overhead arm starts bending to try to keep the weight overhead... I'm gonna have to work that one out. :P

But otherwise it just felt good to be working out my body and whatnot. I headed home to get showered and fed - I ate aLL my cottage cheese!!! HAHAHA :D This is the first time I've run out of cottage cheese in ages -- I usually buy a few containers at a time... but I had purchased some silken tofu again recently so today's protein smoothie was tofu, skim cow's milk, protein powder, and frozen fruit. It was delicious just different. I also managed to eat some popcorn before it was time to get going! I've entered in all my food today so far except for dinner which I will have to figure out later... but so far so good and a nice range to play with for dinner!

Tomorrow is essentially my "Friday" this week since I'm off on Friday - so that's nice. Gonna start really beefing up on carbs more tomorrow in prep for the race Friday night. I'm getting excited. :)

Also Friday is my weighin for the April Challenge!!! I totally forgot that was coming up!!! So extra motivation to keep my food and water on POINT for today and tomorrow and get plenty of sleep Thursday night.

    those squats are killer. i could never do more than 5lbs over my head and i think i was holding 15 at the bottom of the end. just felt weird. really had to focus on not twisting. smoothies yummy!

SEEHOLZ 4/29/2010 12:10PM

    The trick is to start with a lighter weights and get your form right- also asset the angle of the overhead weight. I realized that my left arm wasn't as happy- one thing that might help in the beginning is to keep the squat wider and really try not to lean forward. You are better of not squatting as deep until you get the form down right! I haven't done these forever- must practice! I'm with you on the EXTRA motivation, even though I have to say that TOM week might not do me any favors--- sigh... but it's all about treads, right?!

Btw-- you will appreicate this---from one cottage cheese lover to the next, I HATE Fiber one cottage cheese- it had a coupon and lurred me in (despite the insane amount of sodium 430 per 1/2 cup) and yikes... even though it has 5 gr of fiber- it's NOT worth it. Have you tried it yet? Would like to know what you think, as different cottage cheeses are so different to me--I hate the slimey ones the most!

I have a GREAT feeling about your weigh in!

Anyway, I digress. I am excited for your weigh in. You've been doing really good about staying on track. I could never track calories. I would "save" them all for dinner! Hehe!

Not quite as planned....

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

So... had to wake up reallllly early this morning (talking 4 something?) cause my DH was having some midnight worries and needed to talk so we did that and then there is this place in town called the Waysider which is a local institution -- it's a like... down home cafe type place. Breakfast foods all the time... we got the typical type of thing. Eggs, bacon, grits, biscuits, pancakes. I actually thought the biscuits were not so great - very salty. The eggs were bland. But the pancakes and grits were freaking awesome. haha And the sausage DH got that I tried was good... as were the hasbrown things DH got. They weren't the like... stringy buttery kind. It was the homefry kind, but not all deepfried... I dunno. Just like. Good potatoes. :D hahaha.

Then back home and back to bed. I didn't feel overfull -- I tasted lots but didn't over eat.

Sleep sleep sleep (rowing was cancelled due to the river being HIGH from all the storms) - then I wake up kinda at an awkward time to still be able to go to the gym and decide not to go - and instead I eat more breakfast. Cereal. Cereal. And more cereal. ??!?!?!? WTH!?!?!?!!?

*sigh* So I gotta get on track. I'm all discombobulated. I also don't want to do too much this week leading up cause I've got the Relay for Life Friday night and I intend to run as much of that sucker as possible (7PM-7AM), while being rational and reasonable. So between all the calorie burn overage last week and what I know I'm gonna burn later this week I'm not crazy concerned about my extra food the past few days... (actually yesterday was perfectly in range but still) And I think I did need an extra rest day today... just feel a little off my game in general.

I made a NEW plan for the week - ST tomorrow, minus the body weight matrix if I feel the need. We'll see how the other part of the workout goes before I make any decisions but I think giving myself an "out" of kinds will make it easier for me to get going in a way. Thursday - row and run. Friday - some ST - NO SPRINT INTERVALS - just some plain old lifting keeping in mind not to be too strenuous cause later that night I'll be running running running all night. Plan is to sleep in well on Friday, too since I'll be off work. We'll see. I might scrap Friday's ST depending on when we plan to leave and whatnot to be more well rested for the Relay for Life. I'm sure I'll be TOAST on Saturday. Sunday we'll probably be still visiting the inlaws and travelling back but maybe a nice short recovery run on Sunday.

    Umm--- I didn't go to the gym yesterday, nor today... that is freaking crazy!! I am going tonight, but just like you, I gave myself permission to take it easy... and I'm going for a walk--- so still some movement... I think that this blog reminds me that 1 day does not mean that I've fallen in a deep hole-but rather that my shoe got stuck, you know?
As for your comment of forgiveness- yes, I'm trying. I am not happy with the way I look, my size etc. But, I am trying to buy some new clothes and accept and guess what? (I am much more willing to eat less.. even though the last 2 days don't seem to show it, huh?)
Seriously, though, I am going to try to see what happens if I reduce my calories to 1,800--- and give myself 1 reasonable day to go over... If I strive for 1,800 and end up at 2,200 then life will still be good, you know?
My 2nd challenge is to eat no bread for 1 month... really? Ummm, yeah.
So there- got to e-mail my accountabuddy, so I can keep her posted. and I am actually wanting to weight in on the 30th- just to see and make sure that I didn't gain.
Have a lovely rest of the day--- you can TURN this around!
