Day 341 (W, 111207) — A Collection of Things, Part 2

“A lifetime can well be spent correcting and improving one’s own faults without bothering about others.” — Edward Weston

Catching Up on Good Ideas, Again.  Sorry for the delay in writing today’s post.  (I know you guys just don’t feel like the day has really started until I’ve bloviated my way into your inboxes and RSS readers. 😉

My file of “things to post” is still too big and I’ll never get around to sharing them if I don’t purge them once in a while.  Here are a few more topics, articles, and resources for y’all to take a look at.

  • I don’t agree with everything they wrote in this series, but the overall message is good: 9 Dieting Paradoxes that Make Perfect Sense – Part 1, Part 2, Part 3
    PARADOX 1: Perfectionism does not lead to perfection.
    PARADOX 2: The harder you work, the more fun you’ll have- Really!
    PARADOX 3: Focusing on only one area can hurt your progress in that area.
    PARADOX 6: You can get more results with less effort.
    PARADOX 7: There is such a thing as a good mistake.
    PARADOX 9: The best time to act like a kid is when you’re an adult.
  • I get cramps maybe one or two nights every few weeks, usually in my calves or feet.  This article offers some good advice on How to Eliminate Muscle Cramps: You Can Prevent this Problem.
  • I’ve always hated ab exercises, since long before they decided to upgrade their image by switching to the nouveau hip appellation Core exercises.  The past few months have shown me that even I can do them if I simply make the decision and quit whining about it.  Here are some tips to help you do it, too: Concentrate On Your Core: Exercise Your Body from the Inside-Out.  The first thing they recommend is basically a Cat Vomit Exercise.
  • This article offers tips on something I no longer do but which many people find useful: keeping a food diary.  The Key to Weight Loss Success: It’s Write In Front of You.  If it works for you, do it!

I’ll have one more day of article-dump tomorrow.  Have a great one! =)


Exercise. Last week went well. Monday was good except that I forgot to do my squats.  To make sure I didn’t forget them again, I did my squats this morning at 4:45 AM after I gave up trying to go back to sleep.  We’ll see how the rest of the workout goes this afternoon.

I plan to hit it pretty hard today since I had that Free Meal lunch with my coworkers today instead of my normal fasting.

Exercise Sets Reps Notes
1 Myotatic Crunches 2 25
2 Cat Vomit Exercises 2 20
3 Push-ups 2 50
4 Pull-ups 2 10 assisted
5 Squats 2 4 50  I did 100 in the morning and 100 in the evening.  Are knees supposed to make those noises?
6 Dips 2 20 assisted

Review. Good workout today. =)


Plan for Week 48. Like last week, I am focusing on the basics with one exception: I’m having a Free Meal lunch on Wednesday.

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