Day 325 (M, 111121) — Persistence is Key

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
— Calvin Coolidge

Thanks to David over at David is Fat for this quote.  Nice find, David. =)

Please take a second to visit his blog and read about his journey to better health and fitness.

Life Beckons.
  Sorry but things are crazy busy today so this post is little more than an obligatory placeholder to fill my daily quota.

I apologize for its brevity and lack of content and will be back tomorrow with something more fulfilling.


Exercise.  Back to normal today.

Exercise Sets Reps Notes
1 Myotatic Crunches 2 50
2 Cat Vomit Exercises 2 20 Did sets of 25 today =)
3 Push-ups 2 50 Younger-daughter weighted sets today (42 lbs.)
4 Pull-ups 2 10 Assisted
5 Squats 2 50 Actually done as 3 sets of 33/34
6 Dips 2 10 UNassisted

Review. Pretty good today. I felt strong and persistent. 😉


Plan for Week 46. This week will be a challenge, of course, given the holiday on Thursday and the day off of work on Friday. Plus, today is a second day of family gathering so, while I will try to be moderate in my non-SCD indulgences, there will be some to be sure. To help counteract some of the extra eating I’ll do, I hope to work in an extra run on Friday (in addition to my normal Saturday jog).

Day Fast? SCD? Run/Exer?
Sunday No No No
Monday Yes Yes Yes
Tuesday Yes Yes No
Wednesday Yes Yes Yes
Thursday No No No
Friday Yes Yes Yes
Saturday No No Yes
Red = a negative deviation | Green = a positive deviation | Blue = a note
