Project Yeti: The 2nd week and the first two weigh ins
Here is the end of the first week:
Saturday 07 APR 2012
I hope you had a great Good Friday. Again I am sore but nothing a hot shower will not help with. Warm up on the Air Dyne and some new exercises from Pete to try. Ankle Jumps, Brazilian Crunch, Ice Skaters, Air Squats, Leg Raises, Slaloms, Scissor Kicks, Side Lunges, Mountain Climbers, and Push-Ups. A little variety is always good. Tomorrow is the weekly weigh in wish me luck…..
Onto the 2nd week with the first weigh in
Sunday 08 APR 2012
WEIGHT: Attention K-Mart shoppers there is a lost elephant loose in the store
WEEKLY WEIGHT LOSS: 3.00
TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS: 3.00
I was hoping for more of a loss but a loss is still a loss. Moving on. The soreness is still with me like my sisters meatloaf. The new workout is okay but still tough so I will try it again today plus I am walking to my sisters and back for Easter dinner.
Monday 09 APR 2012
Today is an off day but I still got a nice walk in. More tomorrow…..
Tuesday 10 APR 2012
Today more new exercises from the evil genius Pete. A long ride on the Air Dyne today. For some reason I got more juice in the legs. Lunge Twists, Ice Skaters, Wall Sit, Front Pillar Bridge, Push-Ups, Side Bridge, (both sides) V-Sit, Mountain Climbers, Ankle Jumps, and Scissor Kicks. Ending with the Aid Dyne until the wheel falls off.
Wednesday 11 APR 2012
Today started good. Nice warm up on the Air Dyne and then I went to the heavy bag. I stretched very well I swear I did. So minutes into the bag and I felt something went wrong. The Doctor concurred but no x-ray or MRI. Something in the shoulder “popped” but he said rest it and ice it for a few days and he will look at it the first of the week.
Thursday 12 APR 2012
Okay the upper half is on the fritz and I have no one to blame but myself. I was in my Rocky Balboa rhythm and lost focus. Air Dyne until my legs will not move. Since we have a moment, a word or two about my diet. Weight Watchers is okay but FAT FREE FOOD SUCKS. I cannot eat fat free salad dressing or cheese. The other items I can so far deal with but damn!!!!! I will trade off a slower weight loss for Caser Salad Dressing and real whole cheese.
Friday 13 APR 2012
Air Dyne, a long walk when I got home from work and ice still on the shoulder.
Saturday 14 APR 2012
Shoulder feels better and I have good mobility. Air Dyne for almost 45 minutes and more ice. I tried some Tai Chi, I love the forms and the stretch it gives you but the shoulder got mad at me. More ice and wait for Monday……
Sunday 15 APR 2012
WEIGHT: God has a since of humor and is using all of his stage time on me
WEEKLY WEIGHT LOSS: 3.50
TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS: 6.50
Again a loss is a loss. I have to stop thinking long term and focus on short obtainable goals. What do you think internet land? Is it better to look long term at the completion of this puzzle or focus on finding the next piece and where it fits? I slept in today for no other reason than I was feeling sorry for myself. Air Dyne and a shower and yes the scale. I swear I hate weighing in more than my sisters cooking. Truthfully, I am hungry enough to even eat her food. I will let you know how the Doctor visit goes. Thanks for the encouragement, truly from the heart thanks…….
