I woke up this morning feeling a bit creaky from last night’s class. My calves and forearms (very unexpected) are in semi-DOMS condition already, but I felt peppy enough at 7:30 am to do a shoulder/back workout with Ashlee followed by 20 minutes of gymnastics practice covering the new moves I learned yesterday and my off-side (right arm leading) cartwheel. I think I have the power and strength to do most of the moves, but I need to develop more agility and control. As a side benefit of the PM/AM workouts, I have that beautiful “lean” sensation in my torso today that I normally only get following a run.
Gotta love it.
If I don’t donate blood today at lunch I am going to knock out my missed TT weights and core workouts or sub in a round of Rodney Yee’s Yoga Conditioning for Athletes on DVD at home tonight. I think the capoeira class more than made up for the TT intervals I would have done.
I weighed in at 141.8 lbs this morning with a bf% of 20.9% according to the Omron and a drop of 1% on the Tanita. Not too shabby considering I’ve been cutting at such a high intake level (1800-1900 on average) compared to past efforts. I should have reset my metabolism 2 years ago. It sure makes both lifting heavier AND subsequently dropping fat a lot easier.
I have measurements and pics again on Saturday, so I am shooting for just one cheat during this work week, with my remaining two available for AFTER photos.
