Went the distance now I'm not goin' to stop

Friday, August 02, 2013

Just a man and his will to survive, it's the eye of the tiger it's the thrill of the fight ...

Best. song. ever. Right, Supernatural fans? Okay, fangirl moment over, back to reality.

I tried out a new workout routine this week. I like it. I expanded my 3 day a week weight routine to 4 days a week, but better put together days. I've learned to do a hang and clean this summer, and although I'm still getting the form down, I'm having a blast with it. I think I've got the basics, but my arms don't get high enough.

This week has been iffy for food, but it's the wrong time of the month to get food exactly right anyway. It hasn't been bad, just iffy. I have a new breakfast - one egg cooked in a bit of local butter, 1/2 cup of fruit - preferably berries, 1 tablespoon each of local, raw honey and peanut butter mixed. It's about 300-350 calories which is about right. It's also all local foods, some from right around the corner.

I'm nearly back on schedule with sleep after a week of vacation. Vacation throws me off every time because I sleep oddly in new places and I never had time to nap. I'm trying to stay on schedule now until school starts again so I don't have to adjust to that as well when I jump back on a normal routine. Teaching 24 contact hours again - woohoo!

Okay, time to kettlebell and get moving because it is the last day of the kids science camp I'm helping to run and we have an Olympiad to put together!

Onward and upward!

    Can't have Supernatural without the classic rock! Hope you can ease back into eating healthier. It's hard on the body and the mind to change quickly.

    BTW, have you heard they're developing a spinoff for SPN that'll air as ep 20? Also, did you see they moved the season premiere up a week?

    LOVE LOVE LOVE local foods! I always try to have a good supply of local honey. Seems to really help with allergies. Something about the pollen that the beesuse is local so helps your body adjust to it. Anywhooo, love it. Going to the Farmers Market this morning to get produce.

    HUGS and carry on!
