Sunday

Sleep is about the same.  I really struggle with getting to bed at night.  I am a night owl.  The problem is then I can't get up in the morning so I sleep half the day.  I don't work outside the home so I don't have a reason that I need to be up early most days so the motivation just isn't there.  I will continue to work  on it.

Took the dog on a walk for about 45 minutes.…

3pm (After about a 24hr fast)

Went to lunch with friends at Sa Wa Dee. Had some fresh spring rolls, that appear to be very paleo friendly and a huge plate of a pineapple fried rice. Hopefully it wasn't prepared in some sort of inflammatory oil (they…

TRAINING:

Back to deadlifts! I haven't done a conventional stance deadlift in over 3 years. I've done plenty of trapbar deads and sumo stance deadlifts, but I switched from conventional to sumo a long time ago and never went back. This should do something because it feels like doing deadlifts for the first time.

I am following Wendler's 5-3-1, and it starts out really light. These weights are about 100lbs less than working sets would have been a few months back with…

Tuesday

I only got about 3,200 steps today.  The day got away from me and I didn't get a walk in.  Oh well, better luck tomorrow.  At least I am more aware of my movement now.

Monday

I am not consuming very many calories but I don't feel deprived or hungry.  I also didn't get vegetables in today.  My lunch was at Smashburger and I ordered a side salad but didn't like it.  I did eat a little but not enough to really log.

Saturday exercise

I noticed my phone wasn't counting steps accurately because I don't carry it around at home. I put it on a cheap pedometer around 8pm before we went for a walk. I didn't take it off until just now and it counted 6410 steps. Jason and I took the dog for a walk for about 40 minutes.
