Had a session with Tony yesterday & will have one tomorrow. I think tomorrow's my last, but I'm not sure.
We did all upper body yesterday, with a lot of scapular stuff - my upper back burned like crazy.
Today I did 15 minutes of stair ... Read more
I'm feeling a lot feistier today, despite the fact that I was at a party till about 1 am last night where I had a bit too much wine (4 glasses) and a fair amount of junk food (about half a dozen pretzels, and some chocolate wafer cookies). But ... Read more
GSUSA is not good for your health
Three days at Camp Little Cloud was a lot of fun & I got good data, but man it was tough physically. The food was extremely unhealthy (no whole grains, few veggies, lots of high fat meat & cheese, sweets with every meal). And I didn't have time... Read more
I went to a mess of parties this weekend and didn't eat anywhere near as well as I should have. I tried for most of them, but it was difficult as they were potlucks where people tended to bring starchy stuff and desserts. Friday I had way too mu... Read more
...and boy are my legs tired
I just biked to Trader Joe's. It's only about 5 miles each way, but for some reason, my legs felt like lead. I was going to try to do 25 miles total, hitting TJ's on the way back, but I scrapped that. The whole thing took me about an hour, and ... Read more
Lower body today. Working on balance. My left knee is really bothering me again. I'm not sure what to do about it. Going to my PCP seems pointless, as the two times I've seen her already, she's just ignored it.
Single Leg Squats, on bench ... Read more
I was on the 2nd day of my period yesterday and wicked crampy, so I never made it to the gym for my scheduled upper body work out. So today I did upper body weights AND HIIT (lower body). I'll do lower body weights tomorrow, which should be OK.

Yesterday I did HIIT stair sprints, and my recovery is much faster. Yay me!
Today was supposed to be my workout with Tony, but when I got to the gym, he was nowhere to be see. Bash said he took the weekend off & tried to contact me but the ... Read more
Gaining balance and strength
Yesterday I figured out why the speed on my speedometer was wrong. It wasn't. It was just in kpm rather than mph. Duh! I changed it & it's fine. I did HIIT to TJs and then a leisurely ride home.
Today I did lower body work and am very plea... Read more
A bike-y weekend
I biked qutie a bit this weekend. Ed & I biked to MIT & back on Saturday. Not all that far (only 3.5 miles each way) but my legs were still kinda tired from all the squats Tony had me do on Friday.
Sunday we biked the entire bike trail, 25 ... Read more
And by down, I'm talking weight and body fat!
I tried the other scale in the gym, which is out in the main weight area. I had compared it to the locker room one when I was at 155, and it seemed to agree. The locker room one still won't give... Read more
So, what weight AM I?
Swimming today, just 5 laps, but I promised myself at least 5 laps at least 3 times a week and I hope to stick to that.
I don't have a scale at home (for that way lies obsessive compulsive weighing), so I use the one at my gym. It's one of ... Read more
Lower body improvement
Yesterday I biked for about an hour - first I did about 20 minutes of HIIT, which was maybe 7 intervals, which got me the 5 miles to Trader Joes. Then I biked back at a reasonable pace, keeping my heart at about 60% of max,
Today I did lowe... Read more
I spent the weekend in NYC, largely to see my dad, who's undergoing radiation treatment for Prostate Cancer. He's doing very well, but tired, and his digestion is bad. He can't eat veggies, fruit or whole grain. Poor thing. I did pretty well f... Read more
Lower body wowsers
Tony, sadistic psychopath that he is, decided to start this week's session with jumps onto the bench. I did 'em. Not gracefully, mind you, but I did 'em. And I did 'em holding a ball. And I did 'em catching a ball that Tony threw me, and throwi... Read more
