  • I like to wear slightly longer thin socks that I can put the legging bottom over rather than under. But this time of year they look fantastic with stylish boots. You wear the boots over the leggings, thus eliminating the whole sock exposure problem.

    • I can't wear boots all day in the office, my feet are too sweaty and uncomfortable I know, I know, i am high maintenance! I think I will try to knit leg warmers. Though at my pace they will be ready by 2014-2015, sometime, lol!

      Anyway, as I said schedule this week is crazy. Managed to fit in decent cardio yesterday, but I have to drive to get on time, so shorter walks

      This morning, crzay, Jack3D workout: kept the weight the same, but shortened the breaks to 45 sec. Gosh, I wish gym opened up at 5:00 not at 5:30 am. I am sooo envious of 24 hrs fitness facilities. But, then again, can't complain given how much I get with my rec centre.

      Aimed for 600 cals yesterday, but 3 oz of turkey meat just did not cut it, after weighing the bones from the neck and the wind, I over-drafted it by... twice. Still under 900 cals, and get protein in. Still went to bed hungry, but slept decently. Trying for another day like that today.

      Also, seem I got sensitized to eggs, mostly I think egg whites, had a crappy, horrid indigestion spell after eating a cup of ew with 2 eggs yesterday. Normally, I don't care for a little bloat and stuff, but that was actually bad enough to consider laying off egg whites. I really hope that hemp proteins makes it this week, I will need it this weekend if ic an't have egg whites. Gonna try 2 hole eggs today if it fits in calorically, see if I am okay with whole eggs, and it's just massive dosage of egg white that makes me sick now.

      • Okay, the 800 cals did not happen yesterday. Slightly over 1000 cals. Woke up bloated this morning, and had a bad sleep, probably extra coffee/Jack 3D. Never managed to sneak in a stretch, running late, my husband get held up as well, so just not happened.

        The good news are that hole eggs are fine. I am just reacting to the plain egg white. I guess, it's time to stock up on tuna, lol.

        This morning I had a brief but intense session on the elliptical, will try to fit in a brief walk at lunch & trick or treating, of course. It's pretty cold out so I don't think we'll T&T for long....

        I am tempted not to keep track of calories today, not that I am going to eat any candy or fruit, or gods forbid anything grain, but lox and veggies and the mushroom cups stuffed with sausage and celery are just too hard to count since they are non-standard food. This week is non-perfect anyway, with workouts on the wrong days & judging from my weight a maintenance is the best I can do. Cleaner carb up this weekend is the must! Oh, well, we'll see.

        • Looking at my weight behavior, I think I will have to cut back from 3 day carb-up to 2 day carb-up as I did originally. So, an extra carb and calories depletion and cardio day tomorrow & start carb up on Saturday with an Intensity-Tension workout. Obviously, this week is special, with extra caloric load during Halloween (but I was probably rather low carb still, since I was just eating mostly cheese, lox and stuffed mushroom cups, but I did have almond butter and yogurt to keep myself out of the sweets, of course). Anyway, not so bad, but probably will pile up a couple of lbs as a result. Hopefully will be able to drop it next week, back to 120. Heh, yet another time starting with 122 lbs.

          • F**k, f**k, f**k, f**kity f**k

            Gosh, I really LOVE how I feel right now, but hate how I look. Grr. So conflicted. I am compromising by keeping myself more fed, but hoping to be able to push more intense fitness. I doubt it will take the 10 lbs of fat off, but I want to see if I can even further improve my shoulders & keep ignoring my gut and saddle-bags on the thighs. I feel very well, but I look fat, of course, as I always do after cresting 122 lbs.

            My shoulder is much improved after over-training injury (will I ever learn?), so I am kicking of my new programe.
            The goal is 2x swimming (front kroll, no slacking!), 2x lifting max and then to failure; 2x strength balancing excersises + standing at work and walking and elliptical HIT as much as I can do without over-training and messing with the rest of my life.
            I have been feeding a lot lately, so my weight is up, higher end of 120's, I am following slow carbs diet (basically primal + a cup of beans almost daily). In nutrition my goal is potato only carb-ups, nothing else allowed.

            I can't even define my goals any more beyond fixing my sleep & making sure diet & fitness does not take my life over. I have written down my goals of doing specific things with my daughter on a weekly basis in addition to her afterschool activities and home work (pool 2x, reading new books, puzzle making and family Zumba if there is an opening and she is up to it).

            I am not recording walking and standing at work - I now do it daily, so what's the point?

            3 December 2012: Abs and elliptical (~ 30 mins maybe), stretch, pool play
            4 December 2012: Light lifting (tried to do failure squats with 95 lbs, but it was too light, this Saturday I will do 100 lbs after 2-3 reps on ~ 135-140 lbs; did weighed tilt with 22.5 lbs and shoulder blades on the bench, sidesteps with 17.5 lbs, and 75 lbs 5x5 of split-squats + myotic crunch and Torture Twists; still owe myself Cat Vomiting exerciser); 20 min elliptical HIT
            5 December 2012: stupid crazy day so all I could fit in was ~ 30 min walking and 25 min front kroll (>1K) - My kroll is much improved with Ferris tips, so I am going to build it up to 40 min (about a week at this rate) and start working on the flips so the swim is continuous.
            6 December 2012: PLAN: Strength Balancing workout from Ferris: kneeling chops and lifts, 1 legged deadlift, TGU with 8 lbs and maybe some rope jumping; plus Cat Vomiting and Planks/Push-ups

            Friday is swimming & Saturday I am starting the Max-out lift + 7 reps to failure, doing SQT and BBR + Myotic/TT

            Weight is crappy so far this week, but I am psyching myself for potatoes only Saturday and if it goes well - Sunday as well.

            Been trying to train my brain to vividly see things so I can apply the self-hypnotic technique to start abhorring stupid fruit FOR GOOD. Fingers crossed!

            • Okay, I am desperate, still 126.9 lbs this morning, so I am starting a potato fast. Argh. Part of it is because it is TOM, so I am holding on to water, i guess + appetite is high.... Please, please, please, let me drop a few lbs of fat before going on vacations....

              • I am trying to settle in to the higher weight right now (127-129 lbs):

                the pro's: sleep is magically improved; strength and energy are up (benched 92 lbs again)
                the con's: harder to breathe during dynamic workouts; smaller clothes are too snug

                Got really tired by the end of the last week, so reduced cardio & we had a great weekend with the party I had a few licks and bites of sweets, but I did not feel like devouring anything. In fact the candy tasted atrocious to me. Fruit is still tasting really, really good.

                I have an unfortunately scheduled meeting today, so I am going to go for a swim, and shift lifting by 1 day, probably do Tuesday and Thursday. Other than that, seem to be able to do lifting just fine every 3rd day & support a couple of times a week, and do cardio whenever. Not to bad. Just wish the clothes fit better

                • Actually, higher weight is far higher now than I thought. Did a check this morning, came to 130.6 lbs. Cripes. Of course that gave me a pause, but the only thing I am willing to do differently at the morning is to:
                  a. drop dairy
                  b. put a measuring spoon into the jar of almond butter and limit to 1 tbsp
                  c. record my training to make sure I am not slacking on cardio

                  Finished the last sliver of parmesan this morning with my 2 boiled eggs. 1/2 cup egg whites + 2 eggs + coconut oil (~1/2 tbsp to grease the bowl) for 2nd breakfast & slow cooked pig heart (~ 1 cup), spinach, broccoli slaw mix, a few radishes & 1/2 avocado for lunch. For supper - crisped dark turkey meat with kale, black beans & onions. A few slices of fruit from the fruit plate & some eggplant caviar & almond butter with tea.

                  Weekdays: standing in the office

                  December 16th: 32 min elliptical HIIT; support light lifts
                  December 17th: stretch + Cat Vomit, walk (~ 60 min)
                  December 18th: Max/Failure lifting on SQT, BBR + RJ; planned: KB swings/snatches + elliptical (or swim if have time)

                  • The root causes of my over-eating and not being able to lose fat without obsessing over it & what to do about it:

                    • Lagoon opened up downtown, so hurray, had my first outdoor skate of the season.
                      Those min/max workouts take a few hours to kick in - I only realized how tired the works were when I started stumbling over the jumping rope in the afternoon. So, I did not add cardio after sings and snatches. Sore and beat this morning, hopefully a good sign.

                      Weight was 128.6 lbs this morning, feel a bit better about being under 130 lbs, odd to feel happy about that, but well, small blessings.

                      Today is of course the stupid company lunch so I will lose my walk or have to shorten it a fair bit. I hope to be able to put in the support work and elliptical this morning.

                      December 16th: 32 min elliptical HIIT; support light lifts
                      December 17th: stretch + Cat Vomit, walk (~ 60 min)
                      December 18th: Max/Failure lifting on SQT, BBR + RJ; outdoor skating; KB swings (2-handed, 30 lbs, 80 reps), snatches (25#, 3x12)

                      • Diet wise, i am trying to settle into the a pattern of:

                        protein + fat for breakfast and 2nd breakfast
                        unlimited vegetables with red meat or fatty fish for lunch
                        pre-workout snack of nuts if required
                        and fruit + almond butter for supper.

                        That would give me the bulk of calories during the 5 am to 2 pm time frame, hopefully keeps me going through the workout if I do it in the crappy pm slot & keeps supper at low calories, while not feeling deprived and getting a sugary treat when things tend to break down + have limited time to consume too much fruit. That's the theory, at least. It worked well yesterday, but it's a week or two in, when the best intentions fly outta the window, lol. Dunno still what to do with the bloody weekends.

                        • Max/Failure workouts resonate hard on the body with DOMs for 1-2 consequent days. I do not feel like I am under-lifting. With teh form corrections from the trainer and weight gain, my deadlift is down (a LOT), my Overhead press/Push-press slightly better, bench - slightly better, and squat/BBR pretty much unchanged.

                          Swimming with the 4-hour body recommendations is drastically improved for distance kroll (34 min yesterday, and would have done 40 easily if the pool did not close for classes).

                          Breathing is still problematic with extra weight.

                          Wrist still hurts, so opted out for a walk and a swim yesterday, plus meetings/lunch ate out in the standing time, so as a result no weight loss today, weighed in at 128.4 lbs.

                          • Wrist was better but I decided not to put weight on it for OHP, because that's how it fracked my shoulder last time. So, I did failure OHP at 56 lbs only, no push-press, no max. Deadlifts, I went full tilt, and apparently I did not got the memo on the 'lifting max to the knees', it somehow felt easier to pull the full lift. 165 lbs only, though, DL is still harder with a better form as shown by my PT. Feels puny, but well, what's the point of pulling more, but with the back, not legs? Was runnibng out of time, so just did Torture Twist for abs, and leaving planks and myotic crunch for tomorrow after cardio-o-o.

                            Finally got kroll to 40 min yesterday, no skin of my nose. Now to start working on flips and counting laps to monitor the intensity. Good stuff.

                            • I was chatting with my boss, who is a speed skier and a triathlon-er, and because I have switched gears from running (my summer thing) to swimming (winter thing) he asked me if I am gonna get into triathlon. I am telling him "Nope, feel really uncomfortable on the bike." Actually, I don't even own the bike! He said it was unusual combo for triathletes to be comfortable with: swim and run. I am not a big runner either, though, lol, particularly with the bunion in the last 2 years.

                              • I am really gaining weight, despite showing quite a bit of moderation and continually being active. 131.7 lbs this morning. I don't know if any of it is muscle, after all i am hoping to gain muscle through my lifting max/failure, but I sure know that I dislike the look of my mid-section. (Le Sigh).

                                All I can do for now is remind myself that cutting too early before allowing the body to gain enough muscle mass is the #1 mistake female bodybuilders wannabe make. I am not a body builder, but nothing happened to me really without gain of mass.

                                So, I have no clue how this story ends up.

                                Mom had brilliant idea for fruit limitations without feeling deprived. Buying oranges, and not apples (I am not big as big on citrus fruit as I am on every other fruit + it takes some time to peel one --> brain is more engages into the decision to eat, it is not so immediate). I would also add melons/cantaloupes, because I chop up the whole fruit and then the temptation is short when I dole it out on the fruit plate, so will-power expenditure is minimal. Will see.
