Work Out Wednesday
That's SWEAT baby!
My trainer and I talked about:
-How jacked up my body got after the ultra
-Having symmetrical muscle strength
-How he basically has a girlfriend, but he's not ready to call her his girlfriend
-He had a dream about my brother Sky last night
-One of the benches in the gym is The Cadillac of Benches.
First, he wanted to test my leg muscle symmetry. So, he put two marks on my knees:
Then he did all these tests with my leg in different positions, flexing and pushing and weird stuff. I laughed a lot because it was awkward. Verdict: My hips overcompensate for something, but they do it on both sides.
Then, we worked out.
15 seated rows
15 smith machine chest presses
15 squat to high rows
15 rope curls
12 (per side) single arm chest presses
12 things where I would lie on a weight bench face down and pull weights to my chest of something
15 shoulder pull down things
15 tricep extensions
During the rope curls he attacked me with his fancy marker.
I tried to steal the marker from him, but he was too smart for my game.
Him: Are you back to eating normal again?
Him: I can tell. You have salt bloat.
Awesome. But, hey, I had super salty grilled chicken for dinner last night, with super salty beans. So, that's what happens, Rose.
We also talked about finding middle ground with my diet. His theory was that my body was rejecting me going off the Slow Carb Diet, and that's why everything went to shit during the ultra. It did kind of make sense. I don't know.
But, I know that right now I'm eating shitty food "because I can." Even if I don't actually want it. It's not good, it's not healthy, and my jeans are telling me to cut that shit out, yo.
Of course, with my mom in town, all food is up in the air. She's an amazing cook, so I'm not limiting what I eat around her. Once she's gone I'll carve out some way to stop shoveling candy bars in my face "because I can."
It hasn't gone too far, though. I still have three unopened boxes of girl scout cookies in my office, staring at me every day.
What is your workout plan for today?
How have you been eating lately?
