Potentially. Have until end of March to find another job, otherwise out of job.
Up 5.7lbs on a few days. Happy Birthday indeed! Not due to drink, only had one bottle wine the whole long weekend. All processed, carby food. Thank god birthdays are yearly.
Sleep weirdish, so no walking to work or AM workout, reckoned sleep was more important to get me started right.
It annoys me that there are no GREAT apps available to track weight training. By GREAT, I mean EASY to use, a GREAT UI, ability to show you the previous workouts weight *and* notes when time comes to do that workout again, and all this without a monthly subscription.
I tried Fitocracy again, and really the interface is just too fucking weird. It's initially sexy, but after a few seconds it;s clear that the interface is in fact, batshit insane.
Fitness Builder is good, but really, it's just too fucking expensive to run.
It's back to trying BodyBuilding.Com website for me, since i work out at home,
Weight: down the 7 lb so far, which is alright.
Blood Pressure: Readings of 134/97 & 139/91 are of concern. Not doctor-type concern yet, but checking every few days now. If they’re CONSISTENTLY over 140/90, I’ll head to docs. although if they’ll just no doubt prescribe lifestyle changes, which I’m doing already.
Nutrition: Better than December, by a long mark. Tracking what I eat again, which is helping me THINK about what i’m eating. A wee habit-chain tracker called Strides (www.stridesapp.com) is helping me avoid almost all biscuits… got a slow cooker, will test it at weekend. This will help with dinners.
Exercise: Using my wee fitbit (http://www.fitbit.com/user/22KCM9) I’m back to about 10k steps per day roughly 5 miles. Achilles can get a bit tender towards the end of the day, but manageable. Need to up my weight training, and get more static biking in - bike’s set up to turbo trainer in front room in front of projector.
Sleeping: Been reading on the effect of darkness & light on a person sleep with regards to melatonin & general health, and now sleep without light, and am getting 5 hours a night instead of 3 to 4. It’ll get better. Nightmares not as horrible at moment. No doubt apnea plays a part.
Pinboard: Have setup with Pinterest, saved lots of motivational pictures (http://www.pinterest.com/belfastbiker/)
Overall: Still a few financial/job/house issues in my life, but I’ll hopefully get those sorted eventually, no let them drag me down mentally again.
