Osiyo. Dohiju? Hey, welcome back.
Why the jump from 1700+ to over 3000? Well. The first record I have in this blog for working out and weight loss was April 2, 2012. I’m not sure where I was counting from. Even Memorial Day 2018 was only 750 or so days ago. So I’m updating the day to reflect the total time so far.
I’ve been working out very regularly. Still sticking with 1500 or less calories a day. That’s working out marvelously for me. I’m not hungry at the end of the day. I’m not dreading the bland chicken and rice (I do like chicken and rice though). I feel like I’m over eating most of the time. However, weighing everything, tracking everything in MyFitnessPal and I’m always close or below 1500.
My back has been hurting again. My left paraspinal muscle is inflamed causing some pretty bad back pain. I do some hip raises and a couple other TRX exercises then I stretch a bit. I also found a way to tighten the muscle and twist my hip so I get a nice compression and tension stretch. I can’t explain it but I can tell you that it’s helped quite a bit with my back. The stretching and deadlifts help too.
I moved my bike up to my bedroom. I really like having the workout equipment in my path. That means my only excuse for not working out is that i’m completely lazy. So far, I’ve not been lazy. The bike is on a mag trainer and I’ve got a Garmin device attached to it to measure revolutions and pacing so I can get more accurate measurements of my workouts. Maybe in the future I’ll do something with Zwift, idk. My TRX hangs in my bedroom doorway with the bands so I have to physically move it out of the way to get into and out of my bedroom. I get my hourly workout in and go back to work. I’m going to add a short bike ride to the weights and TRX hourly workout. I need to increase my cardio daily.
Tomorrow is full measurement day. I do weight, calipers, and taping. I’m excited because this last week I’ve noticed changes in the mirror. I can see ab definition. I’m still super fat, for sure, but ab definition under 2″ of fat? Looks good. Disclaimer: I actually don’t know how much fat is over my muscles.
Alright it’s time for bed. I just wanted to document this day before I forgot again.
Until next time. Dodadagohvi.
