  3. Well! Like I've told others, I am a strong advocate of PR tourism. Ppl get ur butts down here!! Some awesome beaches to show off those hard earned muscles! And no matter how much sunblock u slather on a tan is inevitable lol. I'm going hiking soon so I hope to get some nice pix of either El Yunque rain forest (again for anyone who's seen my log on AX) Susua forest or Guilarte mountain trail.

    I am soooo glad I've been surrounding myself with the kind of people who push me, help me to stay motivated and won't talk me out of a long run the day after a leg workout LOL!

    Happy Easter ppl!!

    SO yesterday after telling husband "Wake me up for tomorrows run, do whatever it takes!" I get grumpy and stubborn if waked up before I want. He confiscated my quilt and turned off the fan to get me to get out of bed. Then brought me my coffee

    So no where to turn no place to hide, I got my running clothes on and we did some roadwork. Sun was blazing, the day was beautiful! It was the first time I accompanied him on this run because it begins on a small road that I've run a few times but sort of freaks me out.
    After that road there's bridges over a river, bamboo, and lots of pasture land. Also passed by a few fishermen and a cool looking dirt bike ATV track lol.

    The trip is 5 miles uphill down hill, gravel, dirt, pavement and grass. I didn't run it all, but I ran most and a lot more than I expected after my leg work yesterday Hubby played trainer helping to keep me motivated. Yelling stuff like "Your A Warrior aargh!!" and Me yelling back "I hate u right now honey!!!" lol We had fun and people we ran into were in a very nice friendly mood.

  4. Been following from afar. But Im in this for sure!!!

    RECOVERBRO



  5. Hi Johnny!

    Did what was going to be a small back/shoulder workout and I just kept going. I actually wasn't going to do anything, In laws invited us to dinner and we got home around 9. I usually workout just before 6so I thought oh well and we had a movie to settle us in for the night. But I found myself in the kitchen filling my shaker cup and I ended up in the gym room doing this. Movie was postponed a little but no big deal.

    Weight numbers aren't very high (at all), but I will definitely be feeling this tomorrow. I did these in this exact order and stuck to 8 reps 4 sets each

    DB Bent Over Row
    20lbs each 8x4

    15lbs each 8x4
    -SS-
    DB Overhead press
    15 each 8x4

    Arnolds
    15lbs each 8x4
    -ss-
    Bent Over fly
    15lbs each 8x4

    DB Lat Raise
    10lbs 8x4
    -ss-
    DB Front Raise
    10lbs 8x4

    I hate those 10lb DB, dying to move on from them. Shoulders need lots of work.


    Got on the bike for 30 min, played around with the little resistance knob and that's it

    I hope to get something good done tomorrow.

  6. I thought I already subbed to this, but I guess I did not.

  7. Yesterday I didn't get a workout done but I started constructing a sleigh thingy that holds weight to create some drag when I do short sprints. I didn't get to finish it today because I spent the day sewing with my grandmother (we make baby clothes....awwwww lol) Got home and stripped the paint off a bicycle (one of those classic ones) then did a full body because that was what I was in the mood for
    The little trainer gnome in my head was being really strict today (he can be a slacker at times) and I kept the pace going real nice.

    Circuit fashion little to no rest between exercises 2-3 min rest between rounds. BB was at 40lbs.

    6/6/6 BB Shoulder Press
    8/8/8 Bent Over Row
    10/10/10 Front Squat
    10/10/10 Back Squat
    8/8/8 Burpees (ouch)
    30/30/30 Mountain Climbers
    10/10/10 Front Lift Squat with a 15lb DB
    5/3/3 Pushup Plank 15 sec count each
    5/5/5 Lat Lift Split Squat 10lb DB's Left Leg fwd
    5/5/5 Lat Lift Split Squat 10lb DB's Right Leg fwd
    1/1/1 1 min on bike, Fast on Hardest Setting (Burn baby burn!!)
    1/1/1 Left Side Plank 30 sec count
    1/1/1 Rightt Side Plank 30 sec count
    1/1/1 1 min on bike, Fast on Hardest Setting (ouch)

    25 min on bike to finish
    A bit much to read But Wow I really felt it! was sweating like crazy
    I would like to do this one again to measure improvement. I'm going to have to start running in the morning again because the heat is causing
    rains in the evening.
    40lbs on the BB complexes are an improvement of 5 to 10 lbs over what I usually do.
    Yay!

    nawp, don't have yet. But should def look into it.

    I did about 120 min total on the stationary bike today, played around with the resistance. Got in some really good stretches. Today was a much needed very rainy day, reminded me of the rainy season in Guam were even if it's not raining there seem to be droplets almost suspended in the air. I've been kooked up in the house all day so absolutely have to get out and run tomorrow.

  11. Got a quick run today, 30 min but wasn't really feeling it. I had soooo many things to do that I couldn't get my mind around it. :/
    I've been on the road all day in my crappy little car that doesn't take reverse LOL I complain but I love her.
    A have a few projects all coming to a finish at the same time around August which is getting a bit overwhelming so I'm going to have to make a schedule, ugh. I hate trying to follow schedules. But who knows maybe it'll work this time.

    I picked up two books today. the 2nd edition of "The Warrior Diet" and a really great book so far called "Fighter's Heart" It was in the clearance area looking a little abused. I read the back and found it was about MMA which I know Nothing about and decided it was time to start learning.

  13. Let me get this posted before too much accumulates. I get lazy to post when my internet is slow.
    Yesterday I did legs

    Squat
    80lbs
    12x //// These suddenly started feeling veeery easy :/ so I just went down deeper

    SL Deads
    80lbs
    12x////
    Again a lot easier could have gone for higher reps

    HackSquat
    45lbs
    12x///

    Jump Squat
    20lb DB
    10x ///

    BB 35lbs Fast Cisrcuit
    Front Squat 12x///
    Back Squat 12x ///
    Deadlift 12x///

    Yes! this was very effective. lol.
    When I had to do my 6 burpees I got a thick sort of cramp from the back to the front of my thighs, but it sort of crept in after i had finished them :/

    My husband took the Swift But then I had to go out so I emptied the rock and sand for the fence were building from the back of the pick up. Took 12 wheel barrows full to do it and I made sure to make them count.
    This is me on the back in the reflection There's a half nudie chick sticker in the corner hiding a mess I made of the glass film LOL.


    Had a nice Friday evening, my mom and I went out for her b-day and we went to a local brewery in old San Juan. I tried the Stout brew called Cerveza Cofresi, after the Caribbean pirate.
    Tasteh!! Dark beers are my favorites but kind of hard to find here.


    My mom took this pic and i liked it, decided to give in to vanity and share it here


    In the restaurant u eat around the big copper kettles of the brewery. The kitchen is behind them and it looks pretty cool when it flames up reflected on the kettles. I seriously recommend this place. They have these tall beer towers with spouts that i would love to order when with a group


    I'm Halfway through A Fighter's Heart and I'm loving it. It speaks to the romantic heart in me. Not like a love story of course (blech), more like the way Rocky does, the writer doesn't seem to purposefully romanticise the sport it's just the way it moves. The only reason I would hesitate to recommend it is the fact that I don't have any prior knowledge really of the sport. But it has awakened a serious desire for me to learn and follow it.
    I hope to be in later after getting in a night time workout. Was haveing some issues with inflammation that i get in my intestines sometimes. It gets pretty painful and I take Bentyl for it so I rested during the day today.
    I know I have to get that checked, I left the process hanging a while back with my doctor. I was thinking of trying some sort of process of elimination diet to see if there may be an allergy to something. But it's so sporatic... anyway If anybody has an idea of a diet like that for pinpointing allergies throw me a line. I'll be doing some research and going to the doc during the week. well, this was a long one

  14. You are one cool chick if I may say so.

    Awesome log so far. Keep up the hard work!

  15. That looks like a really cool place to go, is it a microbrewery of sorts in PR? Definitely would be all over that!


  16. @Ryan1 --> Haloooo thnx for the compliment

    @Ryansm----> yeap, it's a sort of Mom an Pop Brewery that has a restaurant, even round the island you don't find their beers too often. Mostly just in the metro area.

    Didn't get a workout in today, which I'm sort of bummed about but I don't let myself get down.

    I found this to take to my Doc on either Monday or Tuesday Elimination Diet To sort of break the ice and see if we can work out a plan to check if I'm having an allergy or something. Also noted that After 3 doses of Bentyl my stomach measurement went down a little more than half an inch (I took measurements when symptoms started and almost flipped) . Which to me is pretty freaky, seeing as I took the measurements at the same time and after the same meals. I figure due to reduced inflammation I don't know
    This has been happening on and off since my teens and I've never really taken proactive measures to figure out what it is or how to stop it.
    I'd go to the doc say it hurt and they'd give me Bentyl or whatever and I'd get my sick note for work or school and go home.
    Lets see what doc says,

    Got my Burpees done for copycat's challenge at around 10am this morning (well yesterday morning)

  17. This may be helpful

    As for as food allergies and intolerances, especially in regards to inflammation, a Paleo diet is hands down the best choice IMO.

    Also glad your enjoying the Fighters Heart book, now I am definitely gonna be picking it up!

    Actually I've been following the "if your still eating grains" thread and ur posts plus those of some others got me into thinking I've got to do something about this.
    I've had a few sonagrams done the only time doc seemed to take a specific interest and found nothing, tomorrow's my appointment and I'm going with my research like I should have done a long time ago. People forget to do that, they think the doc is going to think of everything (I'm waggling my finger at Me of the Past)
    I also developed acne a few years ago, not to bad but I always had really clear skin.
    I have the Paleo Diet Book reserved at Borders and hope to go get it soon.
    Just want to talk this out with my doctor first I'll def share here what he said.

    Just got 35min in running Woo hoo! tomorrow we're going for a 5mile run.

  22. Haha. That thread is making some waves huh?

    And so is this one!

    Hope your doc comes up with something good... After spending some time in hospitals the last few days (not for me) my faith in our medical system is at an all time low.

    I witnessed a conversation between two people going into surgery:
    "hey what makes a smartphone smart"
    "cause it talks to satilights not towers"
    "oh yeah"

    Incorrectly marked carb information in the hospital cafeteria.
    Rice
    230 cal's
    With 40MG of carbs... My ex is a diabetic. God forbid somebody didn't think for a second or a young type 1 on an insulin pump makes his/her calculations off of that.

    And doctors who were dealing with my grandma without having even looked at the updated blood work they ordered a week ago. It's seems that hospital was a conveyer belt of stupidity.


    On another note! Check out "the pony bar" in NYC. Its like 10th ave and 45th street.
    The Mecca of awesome craft beer. And I live 3 blocks from it!!! ...prob doesn't fit into the paleo diet though...

  23. I'm in that boat to right now Ryan, Grandma's been hospitalized, I usually go to her house 1-2 times a week and help her take care of her sister and husband. Well now we're all divided taking care of all three of them, didn't get anything done today. taking turns at the house and in the hospital.
