  • Hmmm... well, if Naiad likes it, most everyone will, right? lol

    I will still consider it then. I wonder how far off the step count is. Right now, with my arm band, on run days I average 16,000 steps. On weekends, I average 13,000. On non-run days (lifting days) I haverage about 11,000. It'd be interesting to try out the UP and see if the steps match. I would assume that it would have to be less sensitive to movement than the armband to avoid counting simple movement as a step, being on the wrist and all, but maybe it's more sophisticated than your typical pedometer.

    • Between armband and wristband, I believe the difference would be negligible. If it does change, I'd say you'd gain steps.
      I'm actually kinda worried about my intake now. I've hit my summer stride, which, this week, averages out to under 1000 cal/ day, closer to 750. The macros are right, on average. I'm eating until not hungry (not full or stuffed, just not hungry) for lunch and dinner. I'm burning closer to 1500/ day, according to my wristband.

      • Well, with the gelato last night, I hit 820 cal.
        Beast mode engaged! 5x5 70 lb squat, 5x5 55 lb OHP, 1x5 110 lb deadlift. Funnily enough, it wasn't the deadlift that did me in (I've been doing 4 more sets than I should've up until now.) It was those damn overhead presses. The last half of the fourth set and the last set were EVIL. You wouldn't think a 5 lb addition would do that, but oh dear god, I was shaking like a beaten chihuahua at the end of the last set.
        I wonder if it's the lack of caloric intake doing that to me. Research necessary, and figuring out how to cram more calories down my throat. I don't eat breakfast (food isn't appetizing until about 10, I may take the leftover coconut milk and mix it with some coffee at work), and I need to get more fat in elsewhere.

        • Shaking like a beaten chihuahua - perhaps the best description ever. Now I have to write a book just so I can steal that phrase

          • Thanks! I was rather proud of it, and it was the most accurate description.

            • It could just be because we have super slow strength gains in the OHP. It's a hard move. I'm only up to 75 lbs after 8 weeks of lifting. I started at 45 lbs. OHP is hard and it's the first lift you'll plateau on, so says a StrongLifts newsletter I got. Just keep pushing.

              • Oy vey! Can't say I've ever gotten DOMS between the shoulder blades before. Nowhere else, just between the shoulder blades. Stupid deadlift. Goes nicely with the bitten lip and chewed cheek, lemme tellya.
                I'm going to keep upping the weight until it refuses to go up 5x5 with good form (which may well be another 5 lb, but I'm hoping not. I'd like to OHP half my weight or more before I plateau.)

                • Probably a good sign for your posture, though! Not to say that it's bad, but that definitely helps keep things straight.

                  • I'm thinking I finally hit a muscle that rarely gets used. It may be the muscle holding back my pull ups. I hope so.
                    Work drama today. It sucked. I fixed it. It still sucks, but not as bad.

                    Sushi for dinner, when Geek gets done with work.

                    • 5x5 75 lb squat
                      5x5 60 lb deadlift
                      5x5 60 lb barbell row
                      All done in less than 15 minutes, at the house.
                      What's that about needing to be at the gym for an hour?

                        A myth, propagated by gym owners?!

                        • Perk to waking up toodamnearly: I was able to tailor my work polo down for a woman's frame a size smaller than the smallest they had, after working out.
                          Dhansak, I hear ya. I eventually quit going to the gym when I realized I could do better at the house (with a power cage.) No leaving the house, no meatheads, and I can work out in my sports bra and pajama pants without stares (Geek's still asleep when I work out.) No excuses because it's right by the front door, maybe 10 steps away.

                          • Ditto, (apart from the bra)! As long as you got the motivation, it's not a drama, also save about 40 a month!

                            • My insurance company(ies) can suck it. Either they can pay the rest of that bill or the hospital can eat it. I'm not paying more than my co-pay, even if it is less than $100 more. It's the principle.
                              Lunch was 4 bits of sushi (leftover from last night) and leftover spag. Had Fourbucks just now, don't regret that either.
                              I'm a bit miffed at my body right now. It appears to be growing and shrinking in ways that make clothing even more difficult to find. Waist shrank, ribcage shrank, boobs stayed the same, hips grew, thighs gre, calves grew and nothing doing on the belly. I'm already an hourglass, which the modern fashion ijit doesn't design for. I don't need corset like curves that make it even more impossible. (Granted, I'll learn to tailor better if my body keeps doing this, because I like what I'm seeing in the mirror, it's just irritating that designers either design for a stick or a wheat belly with stick legs.)

                              • Workout- 5x5 80 lb squat, x5 60 lb bench press and 1x 125 deadlift.
                                For those who've been following me closely and know the stronglifts progression, that deadlift is 5 lb more than I should've had. That's because I tacked on another 5 lb to make this statement:
                                I JUST DEADLIFTED MY OWN WEIGHT!!!!!! I didn't think I'd ever see that.
                                The just shy of half my weight bench press is pretty awesome too.
