People say that losing weight is no walk in the park. When I hear that I think, yeah, that's the problem. ~Chris Adams
Good morning all, did you miss me? It may take me a little while to get back into the swing of things here but I assure you I will. I was standing in the kitchen this morning and deciding what to have for breakfast when it struck me that this is exactly how we sabotage ourselves. It would have been very easy to grab a Pop Tart or some sugary granola bar for breakfast instead of holding to my chosen eating plan. I opted for 4 fried eggs and some left over chicken from the night before. Yes Chicken for breakfast why not! I often find myself not having a traditional breakfast. How did we get to a point of thinking certain foods are only meant for certain times of the day. Give me a Western Omelet anytime of the day. I guess my point here is do not let yourself get trapped into thinking you have to have the same food for breakfast everyday.
Now concerning the bicep tendonitis it is feeling pretty good today although I have to admit during vacation all the swimming on the beach did not do it any favors. It must have been the additional stretching and the pulling motion you do when you perform the breaststroke. I will be making another appointment with the physical therapist today. I am currently happy with both my sports medicine doctor and physical therapist. Both are personable and realize that I have goals to hit.
Sunday I hit the gym and did a mock meet to prepare for September 3rd. I warmed up and opened with a lift of 300lbs and then went for 315lbs. I had a couple of guys spot me and give me the calls for the USAPL meet. A start command, a press command, and a rack command. I nailed the two lifts and when I nail them on September 3rd I will decide then what my third lift should be. My weight is good at 166 this morning and I will hit 163 in plenty of time for the meet.
