Monday Jan 3

Is there anyone out there that likes Mondays? Ugh. I got the job done, at least I can say that. I got the job done. Back at work, diet and schedule is back to normal ... or at least what passes for normal around here.

I ate this today:

Breakfast: smoothie; Grapefruit and orange juice blended with frozen berries. Simple and awesome

Snack: I was hungry, so I had tuna on salad. Was pretty solid man. Stopped my stomach from growling.

Lunch: The same again - this time with a bit longer of a break between bites. Almonds and hummus with carrots, too. Prunes to finish. Water to drink.

Dinner: Chicken, rice and some veggies. Smoothie for dessert. Not bad.

Did this workout:

1A) KB Snatch 5 x 5 40 then the 53 lb KB
1B) KB farmer walk 5 x 100' same weights
2) Incline DB bench 4 x 6 - 8 reps 30 lbs
3) Overhead Plate Walking Lunges 3 x 75' 20 lbs this time, more next time
4A) Band face pulls 3 x 15
4B) TRX rowing pull aparts 3 x 10
5) three rounds of:
10 Ab crunches off the end of the bench
10 Ab rollouts on green ball
2 wrist roller up and downs
8-10 chin up bar hangs knee to chest

Right knee kind of giving me a bit of trouble. Behind the knee and to the lateral side. I'm thinking some sort of ligament, but you never know. Short run and ice tonight. That, and a nap - getting back to normal from the messed up scene I've lived with the past two weeks is tough, man. Ugh.

May have a short run with a short workout before hand. Trying to get the best of both worlds. had a decent run tonight, too.

While at work, read this blog post. 500 bucks for a home gym? Hmmm.. not sure what I've paid so far, but it's about than that, I think. Perhaps a little more - not sure. Certainly less than 700 bucks, and I get to keep everything.


  1. I think you got a pretty decent home gym, I looked at that blog and 500$ didn't seem to get him much. Probably b/c the TRX cost about 1/3 of that.

  2. Criagslist, man ... got my TRX for a hundred. Same with the 70 lb KB. The branch and the tires were free, the mats I already owned. I bought the chin up bar and the punching bag for 150 together. The three kb's (not in picture) were also about 150. The bench, bars and cement weights were Kijiji, delivered for 150. The slam ball and the sand bags were pretty cheap, as were the Indian clubs. So .. all told, about 700 bucks.
