Phew, dinner parties and house projects to prep for in the midst of a really busy workday. I could really stand to start getting up earlier, another weak spot for me right now; way too much stuff happens late at night for me.
I'm going to try something new tomorrow with nutrition tracking as I make slight tweaks to the format here. Let's go!
Using the Fitbit Aria 2 scale, here are my stats on the day.
- Weight: 219.6
- Body fat percentage: 23.2%
Slight change in the right direction, hopefully I didn't set myself back too far with the ridiculously rich dinner.
Just signed up for MyFitnessPal again to give it another shot, I've heard it's come a long way since UA bought and invested in it. Going to aim for consistency in food tracking as I think that's my biggest weak point in my overall health journey.
Today was a hectic day with work, family, and home projects but fortunately I was able to take advantage of two breaks and sneak in two separate workouts. Here's what those looked like.
All arms again today, 4 supersets done 3 times each, 2 biceps and 2 triceps. I tried to do this with as little rest as possible. When my arms were completely shot I did some jumping jacks or shadow boxing to keep my heart rate up.
|1a||Inverted chin curls (using bands mounted on ceiling)||to failure|
|1b||Incline DB curls (simultaneous)||to failure|
|2a||High curls getting hands behind head for max stretch||to failure|
|2b||Incline DB curls||to failure|
|3a||Tricep pushdown||to failure|
|3b||DB close grip press||to failure|
|4a||Cobra pushup||to failure|
|4b||DB close grip press||to failure|
After our dinner party at the house tonight I was able to sneak in a quick 30 minutes of pilates/core work and another 30 minutes to walk the dog outside. Really solid recovery for what I know is going to be an extremely busy day tomorrow.
I get a lot of the motivation for my workouts and sometimes the entire workouts from Chris Hemsworth's new app, Centr. It's a really cool app and gives you workouts across a bunch of different dimensions (cardio, strength, stability, power, etc.). Plus...the snacks are amazing.
