Training #86 – Twist and shout

A day late with this recap! I ate some cold cereal Monday night for dinner for the first time in over a year and had it sent my blood sugar to the moon and me into a narcoleptic coma-like state. Needless to stay, this post did not get completed in its usual timeframe. Monday morning,…

Health news

So I had an appointment with my endocrinologist today. Guess what? I'm a glowing picture of health. Everything right down the line is normal to great, all without any medication. While I am concerned about my A1c, doc says it's normal to fluctuate, but we will continue to monitor it. The rest of my readings…

A date which will live in infamy

While nothing so significant happened on this date in my personal history as Pearl Harbor is to this country, today is a significant anniversary for me. Looking at my calendar and checking back through the blog's archives, it was this day in 2015 (I was writing and posting recaps the day after and you can…

Training #77 – Let it be

Thursday morning, training with J. We had a nice and breezy training day, which is not to say we took it easy and metaphorically ate bon bons while going through the List. I felt relaxed and ready to work when I arrived this morning, mind was excited and anticipating working on this particular List. What we did…

Training #72 – Reunited

Monday evening was post-vacation training with J. And I have to say, being in the gym for a 5 p.m. appointment after a week away is like being in a completely different gym. There were 5 other trainers present in addition to J, 3 of whom were working in our little room with their clients…

Training #69 – All right now

Monday morning, Labor day, training with J. The gym is on holiday schedule and did not open until 7 this morning, so we changed our appointment yesterday to 7:30. While I have been aware of the holiday schedule since Friday, J has more commitments on his schedule this holiday than I do, so I left it…

Training #68 – I can’t do it alone

Thursday morning, training with J. Review day, teaching day, all about legs today. This was a little unusual, in that we reviewed from shoulders and did not go through all the filler items that are typically on this list. But oh well. It was so much fun! What we did: Standing 1-arm dumbbell snatch (10…

Lets talk numbers

All over the various blogs I follow and forums I read there is chat about end-of-month numbers. As I just finished my self-employment invoicing, I have my own set of significant numbers to share Work. At my part-time job, I logged 116 hours for the month and billed 152 hours for my self-employment gig, bringing…

Training #67 – Losing my religion

Monday morning, training with J. I must confess I was not feeling much like it this morning, kind of low energy funked out, just not wanting to be at the gym and pushing through to some other level. But what I know is that no matter how crappy or cranky I feel walking into the…
