Cardio rebuttal! Got a new pair of sneakies so ran a 5k on the abandoned railroad trail behind the office building. Tempo run today, so I was roasting in the sun by the end.More daily jk fitness journal:
Aw shiiiiit. Is there anything you can do to baby it along? Massage? PT? Not deadlifting? Bouncing quarters off your butt to pass the time?Went to the gym on Friday, yay! First time I had been since October. Bad news - I through my back out on my second deadlift warmup. Same L4/L5/S1 problem I've been having. Hobbled around all Friday afternoon, couldn't move on Saturday, back to hobbling yesterday. Bad pain down the left side this time (normally the right), and my back/butt/hamstrings are tight as a drum trying to "protect" it. This sucks.
The only thing I'm thoroughly bred for is eating pizza.Curse you and your thoroughbred body vs. my workhorse body!
Just...a random 5K? Like. Unplanned? You just...just ran that? I'd shut up if I was your dogs so I wouldn't have to do that again.early AM 5k with the doggos, hopefully that will shut em up during the day so they don't interrupt my very unimportant video calls.
I'm sore but not miserably so. I'm definitely going to keep going. Just need to decide how to fit it in my schedule and what to do (classes, independent work, etc)How...how do you feel? Are you going to go to the gym like me? I was asked by someone right after class ended. They've figured it out and now they're exploiting me!
I say do independent work for a week or two and then maybe try a class? I don't know how hard your classes are, but I know I suck doing independent workouts and need someone to tell me what to do.I'm sore but not miserably so. I'm definitely going to keep going.

I've got to figure out macros/whatever. During the week I have a fairly normal breakfast/lunch (lots of protein shake + salad w/ chicken), but I also feel like...idk. I'm not doing well enough? I feel like eating less processed foods is my main goal, but I am also one of those people that I don't want to leave my snacks in my cabinet languishing? Got to figure out meal planning, but, eh.Y'all are so beastly, I love it.
Nutrition is going pretty well overall. Other than the usual Friday night out (typically sushi, nothing too horrible), food management has been a win. Found my ideal balance of macros and basically eating the same thing every day. Every. Dang. Day. Buuut, I tell myself it's not forever. I have 5-8 pounds left to lose (from a start of +30 pounds) until I can just maintain (the I can add back 300-400 calories).
Edit: Kind of pointless to add much detail since everybody is different/has different preferences. But just wanted to add that I'm very happy with my homemade protein/grain concoction I make for breakfast. In words, it might sound kind of weird, but I think it tastes good and easily keeps me satiated until lunch.
