Day 1 following the long weekend went well. Didn't overeat (well, according to sparkpeople... I'm not sure I love the whole "you get more calories if you exercise more" idea) that much, did three FULL circuits of my cardio "warm-up" [Incline: 5, start @3mph, increase by 0.2 every 30 secs to 5, rinse, repeat] and one incarnation of the "7 minute" workout circuit.
I think the 7 minute workout would be an actual high-intensity workout if they assigned me exercises that I could do for the full 30 seconds each. I.E. pushups: I can't do more than 10 (on my toes) without my wrists screaming at me (same with tricep dips), *sigh* As it is, I just do as many of them as I can, and then rest between.
I also climbed last night, but had to stop earlier than I wanted to because SOMEONE (*gives middle finger on right hand the stinkeye*) collapsed while I was wall walking
ca/2012/05/climbing.html not my kid: but mine will probably do this too: I certainly did)
causing me to fall ingloriously on my bum. And by collapsed, I mean it bent backwards. So it's currently trying to convince me that taping it to my ring finger would be a good idea (I don't think it's actually injured -- no swelling -- but if it still hurts Friday when we climb again, I'll tape it then). So I totally waited for a whole 5 minutes before continuing to climb and redoing that problem. I should probably avoid that one for a while, though. As I was finishing it (sans fall), I realized that there was a lot of strain on my bad knee from the way the ending was set up. Not worth a real injury, that's for sure!
In other news: TOP-ROPING FRIDAY! That's right! I've been bouldering for the last year and a half straight, so Friday we will re-introduce my stomach to my knees as I remember that I'm afraid of heights! Should be interesting to see how well I climb on a rope, after 2 years of experience bouldering!

In other news, apparently sour snowboards and TV don't lead to weight loss. Who knew? Scale was back up, but I've got a handle on it. No more gaining for me. Just the losings! Strength day! Woo!
