Honey waffle supplement + coffee for pre workout nutrition for bricks.....FAIL.
What am I thinking. A coworker suggested fig newtons and I'm not really interested in trying that right now. Might give it a try if all else fails. Might try gatorade chews again.
Experiment #1 Berry shake + coffee
Expriment #2 Ezekiel bread + honey and coffee
USA Triathlon guide, good book. Should've picked it up sooner. A lot of info on 'detraining'.
My coworker was looking at pictures online; one of them was an xray of a man that swallowed a knife and it was in his esophageal area. She then saw a man that had a beer bottle in his lower part of his colon. She innocently turned around and asked, "Wow, I wonder how he swallowed that?" LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh dear.
I'm not going to lie. Working nights sucks. But if you want something or enjoy something...OR am obligated to some higher cause, you will find a way to do it.
Training...or should I say, overtraining is a big component in fitness as is SLEEP and REST. SO, once you notice a change in attitde (depression, disgust) or are unmotivated, take a break.
You don't want to undo everything you've worked for, you want to keep your MENTAL/emotional/spiritual SANITY to pursue the rest of your goals.
Everyone loves a hardass and a martyr but the mind, body, and soul can only take so much, so don't push until your break or it will barr progress
New year's resolutions should be made on birthdays, not the beginning of the year, because you are celebrating your life. Goals should be measured by what you have done this year and how far you have come from last. Ask yourself, have I improved? what do I need to change? have I changed? what have I done?
Failure and disappointment are ok. As long as at the end of the day, the end of the year, you can ask yourself and answer straight-forwardly; have I done my best? have I done all that I could?
Assess your weaknesses and percieved disabilities. When someone, or society, places a rock in your path; find a way around it, toward your goals. Do not let anyone put a price on your worth. Your weaknesses are gifts and intuition into finding other ways to get to your goals, not disabilities.
Society needs innovators, not sheep. When you successfully prove people wrong and do good for yourself, people will be scared.
Good. Let them be. Take a stand for yourself, and
Do not back down.
I've been working on strength, agility, grace, and endurance and now that I think about it, the pillar is definately precision. Executing something well. Where you are one in control. Because, really, what good is it to have one of those things, or all, and not be masterful. YOU make adjustments; fine-tuning movements, no matter how subtle, even if they are a hairline. They have to all come together as tools you use, not letting them use YOU. And each can be manipulated by diet.
Just food for thought
Though I may not agree with everything he believes in, he definately is worth following
Never let the mindset of the crowd trick you or convince you of WHO YOU ARE and WHAT YOU WANT TO DO with YOUR life. DO NOT fall into place, DO NOT fall in line. DO NOT WAIT for someone to lead you.
If you want a real challenge DEFY what society expects you to be. Physically pushing weights is easy, push BACK expectations and take control of YOUR life. The MORE you do what YOU WANT the LESS criticism and negavity will pierce you.
Be invincible. Work on creating your invisible set of armour.
Feeling exhausted doing two-a-days so I've decided to incorporate:
black coffee + tea & honey + 2 tangerines prior to swimming
preworkout mix of raspberries/blueberries/blackberries, ice, and almond milk.
post-workout chocolate protein, almond milk, ice
We'll see how that goes!
Does anyone have any other suggestions for carb intake for endurance training BESIDES processed foods, ie: bread. Plums, bananas, apples?
Good session at the gym today, probably feel it tomorrow, but that's ok. One of the older men that is there as frequently as me asked me, "Who taught you to train?" For some reason I thought he'd say something mean but, he said "You train like a man." and gave me a thumbs up. Lol. It's always nice to hear that kind of stuff. Then he was talking to another guy and said, "She makes it look easy. She uses a lot of the equipment." Which half the time, I'm not even sure if I'm doing it correctly, lol.
I went to the pool after and one of the regulars was there as well. I had some coffee with me, can you blame me :P, and he asked if I had coke or coffee in my cup. I should've told him crack. LOL. Kind of inappropriate though. But I'm just high on life?
Sometimes I'm kind of focused on myself that I may not pay attention to others but people will notice; your dedication and discipline and maybe sometime, be less afraid each day to do what THEY want in life.
Anyway, I kind of thought to myself, in the long run I most certainly am in it for my own health and well-being, BUT, if I can inspire someone or empower others to cross boundaries and lines in ALL facets of life for their OWN enlightenment and freedom then so be it. I may not know which direction I'm headed in yet but I'm going to enjoy the ride, definately.
I'd like to sit down with Kai Greene and have a cup of coffee
Metabolic rest, exhaustion, and suffering are things that have been on my mind recently. I now understand the need for cheat days...one of them is SANITY. The idea is to push hard enough, not so you break, because the emotions associated with that are a bit extreme, but until you are at your maximum effort without having to do so and are not FORCED into rest....regret.
YOU choose the type of suffering you want to endure.
If you are unsatisfied with some aspect of life, WAKE UP! DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
IGNORE the people that don't want you to do well for yourself and make you feel guilty for accomplishing things. You've EARNED it.
And to the people that criticise and are like black clouds, let them; maybe it isn't their time yet. Standing up to others doesn't necessarily mean being boisterous about it, keep quietly persisting in your dreams and goals because you will get there one day.
Adopt the attitude that NO MATTER WHAT life throws, you think;
Around midnight we got a lot of ER admits so we were all busy. Pts were hilarious though. One of the other nurses was eating from a patient's tray that was discharged during shfit change. I look at him in horror and ask "What the hell? Don't you eat?!" He said, "Yeah, this isn't bad" Porkchops, lmao gross.
One of the nurses told her aide to see what a pt wanted, he came out and said his iv was beeping. She asked him to read what it said, he said 'It said to get off your ass and read it for yourself' LMAO.
One of my coworkers that always comments on my pants said, "Your pants are still sagging!!" I grin and say I think my butt got bigger, she says, "Well it looks like those children that pooped in their diaper." I told her "God dammit, I usually wear my diapers at work and change them regularly"
After explaining to a pt why he can't have caffiene or any by mouth for a procedure, he asks, "Can I have a Sprite?" Ohh brother
Pt w no teeth, "Can I have ice cream?! Anything cold and sweet!" I give him prune juice w his laxative. After drinking it, "What kind of juice is that?!" I tell him. "Ooooohhhh, you dirty." Ha ha ha
