**MAIN EVENT WORKOUT
Today I will be doing the same kettlebell workout as last week.
1 full round
- Halos (15 each direction @8KG)
- 2 Hand Swings (20 swings@12KG)
- Goblet Squat (15@12KG)
- 1 hand Rows (15 each side@12KG)
- Reverse Lunges (15 each side@8KG)
I may try to up the lunges to 10KG, though my legs are sore from walking this week. I'll try to do a proper warmup. Next week, I will likely add a second set of Halos and continue from there until I have three full rounds.
I attribute this mostly to walking and the kettlebell routine (plus a slight weight gain), but I am once again down to 20%. I won't really take that number seriously until either (a) I see it 3-4 weeks in a row or (b) I see 19% and my body shows the corresponding definition.
The week before last I achieved something major in my life (not weight/health related). As a result friends and family have all been taking me out to celebrate over various meals. I see this trend continuing over the next couple of weeks. It's not a bad thing. It's just life
The foundation of my eating at home is basically good, such that eating out 3-4 times a week and then a beer/pizza night on Friday isn't going to make or break me.
I gained 1.2 pounds and am up to 198.0. Over the next couple of weeks I may go up to and slightly above 200, but then the weight will taper as I settle back into fairly sparse eating out.
I think my goal for November is going to be to eat more healthy carbs. I'm going to shoot for 1-2 a day. I'm up to 2-3 vegetables a day. Fruit and lean dairy is absolutely not a problem. I think if I can replace a good amount of the dark chocolate I eat with Green Tea and whole grains/sweet potatoes/brown rice, I will hit 195 by the end of the year.
- TD out!
