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.…Continue

Again, an easy logging day.
Had a scoop of Muscletech Anarchy before training today at about 11am.
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…Continue

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…Continue

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.
5 PRESS/PULLUP SUPERSET LADDERS, 1-4 REPS. 135# ON THE BAR.
TAEKWON-DO HYUNG PRACTICE.
Note: Not many calories overall today, needed more but couldn't eat more. Proof you can't overeat a dense protein source. Stuffed myself baked wild cod with lots of butter and lemon at dinner. Couldn't eat another bite.

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.
