Today’s workout went well- despite the mere six hours of sleep I managed to sneak in last night. As a result I am not really entirely checked-in and fading in and out of bouts of drowsiness. My 15 minute power-nap of about 20 minutes ago seems to have done much to reinvigorate me.
There is a good deal to report today in my personal fitness quest. First, my confession that the last few days I have followed anything but a good nutritional plan. My food intake over the last few days has included pizza, pudding, Reece’s Pieces, Hibachi Express rice, and cookies. Today has been my first day back on the healthy wagon. I feel a bit better now that I got that bit of undisciplined cravings satisfied and out of my system. Plus, hopefully it will serve to convince my body to turn over a few more pounds of stubborn fat the the furnace of my metabolism.
Second, I almost completed my first full handstand push-up without any aid from a support structure. Since I couldn’t quite make it I took about 20-30 seconds to hold my body upright and steady in a static position- about halfway into a full push-up. Suffice it to say my shoulders feel well used. Also, even after that grueling half rep I was still able to perform 10 chin-ups- my highest number yet.
Also, I ended up missing my mile run today, as I couldn’t help but feel a lingering malaise. You know how you feel when a cold is coming on, but your not quite sick yet? That is how I felt.
So this week I will be taking it easy on my cardio until that feeling leaves. Then it will be back to running miles and pushing weights.
