Day 1 and 2 - Accountability




Its all about staying accountable, and wow, taking pictures of what I eat is hard to remember to do... but it sure works for the accountability side of things.

Day 1 was easy. Self directed run, and eat healthy.
Day 2 was a bit harder to organize. I had my first of 2 job interviews for the Comfort Inn on Day 2 at and then took my oldest to the hospital, I wasn't able to go to the gym until 8:30pm... but it felt good that I went... because at that point in the day i REALLY didn't want to go. I am a "go to the gym in the Morning" person.

My workout schedule hasn't changed in 20 years.

Day 1 and 4 (Mondays and Thursdays) I workout biceps and triceps.
Day 2 and 5 (Tuesdays and Fridays) I workout chest and back.
Day 3 (Wednesdays) legs and abs and shoulders
Day 6 (Saturdays) longggggg run... and abs... and shoulders.

I usually do 3 sets of 15 reps... 2 - 3 exercises for each muscle group... except legs.
Legs usually involves quad extensions, calf raises, lunges, squats, hamstring curls, leg press, and deadlifts.

I feel good. Not bloated. I plan on weighing myself again at Day 25. I was really excited about my Box Jumps being 6 high... but really sad at my pushups. My right arm has suffered over the last 5 years with tennis elbow and then rotator cuff issues, and i don't normally notice those issues... until i need the strength.

With Day 1 and 2 behind me... I feel good about my decision to do this.
