So my favorite days are days when good news happens. Unfortunately, I can’t yet divulge the good news until a later time this week, but the news was divulged to me, so it was still a great day.
Other than the good news, I had a relatively good day but it seemed busy and drawn out. I had a lot of work to catch up on because we had data issues previously, and a few other things I had to take care of, so it just sort of felt non-stop. But at least I wasn’t bored. Time didn’t fly because I wasn’t having fun, but it could have been worse.
As far as exercise goes, I didn’t feel that my leg workout from Monday was as effective as I would have liked, so I did it again. Not the exact same workout, but more volume and focused on the legs. I did pyramid squats, banded hip thrusts and finished with Calf Presses with 3 seconds time-under-tension (TUT). Calf presses are pretty easy so I have to increase the difficulty by holding each press longer. It really is how most exercises should be done, but most of us like to get them done quick. I finished with 30 minutes of Hill Mode on the elliptical and went about my day.
I am getting a bit frustrated with my weight. Despite tracking everything accurately, not over-eating, getting exercise… I am still either not losing or gaining slightly. it is making me want to just eat if I am going to gain weight anyway. But I don’t want to give up yet. Just have to adjust and figure out what is going on.
