thanks commenters of worker outer blog

Thursday, April 18, 2013

So, I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks to all those who posted on my last blog. "ADVICE FROM REAL WORKER OUTERS NEEDED"...If you havent read it, please feel free and leave me any advice or opinion you want.
Everyone really gave me positive feedback.
I am going to continue to lift weights and not little girly girl weights either.
Of course, I am not going to be dead lifting 200 pounds anytime soon, or probably ever.
But, I feel better about doing 10 lb dumbbells, since the 5 lbs just wasnt giving me the resistance i felt I needed anymore.
But exercise is exercise and what little bit I did today was no match for my appetite.
Seems I went wayyyyy over my calories, I dont really know why.
But, I did go to the walking track, only for 20 minutes, but little by little I am getting back to walking and my foot hasnt been bothering me too much.
I did feel a slight bit of discomfort about 15 minutes into my walk.
I am really looking forward to this foot being healed and my walks increasing to an hour and maybe more.
So, I had an ok day today...had Subway with my friend Amy and a great tan session, I loved sweating it out in the tanning bed.
Hope tomorrow is equally as good.
Thanks again for the comments on the last blog.

    But, but, but.... what's wrong with deadlifting 200lbs? I do that every morning just getting myself out of bed! emoticon

That's great that you're staying with the 10lb weights for now, and don't be afraid of going upwards when you feel that it's the right time to. You've already shown that you can recognize when the resistance just isn't enough, so trust yourself to know when that happens again.

I'm so envious of you being able to lift right now! I'm on restriction (flippin' surgical hernia) and miss my strength. I sure hope that you enjoy the training as much as I always have!

From what I understand, the "hungries" are more likely the day after a major workout, because that's when your muscles are repairing and building. I know that I generally need more fuel the next day, and sometimes even the day after that. I tend to go for a major protein binge on the day after a big workout, but now that I've seen the pattern it's easy to plan for and keep my ranges in line on average for the week.
