Two new PRs!

Back on my meal planning and so far it’s going really well.  Down 4lbs in about a week.  Not bad at all.

Hit two Personal Records today at the gym too!

1.  I did 65kg x2 on the Sumo deadlift.  Wasn’t sure I was going to make it, but there it was.  I was only able to do 1 a few weeks ago.  Everything just felt good today!

2.  I was able to do 5 sets of 6 shoulder presses at 22kg (missed the very last one of my last set of 6).  A few weeks ago, I couldn’t lift the 15kg bar over my head.

All in all, a pretty good day.


First time through…

…the new plan!  We setup a new 3 day cycle, working in my Olympic Weightlifting routine.  So far, it’s been good.   It feels like more work and less work all at the same time.  We took out pushups and some other elements for now, since I wanted to concentrate on more weightlifting.  We also put that work near the beginning of the night.  It’s changing up energy levels for me over the course of the nights/days.  I was doing more, more slowly.  Now I get right into the thick of things and expend alot of energy right off the top.  It means I’m doing a little less of the work I was doing more of, but that’s okay as long as I get everything in.

I’m also recreating my meal plan.  Going to see about shedding a few pounds for my 4 year anniversary (for my weight loss journey).  I know that’s not the best excuse ever, but it’s mine…  I’ll let you know how that goes.

Toronto Screenwriting Conference & WGC Awards…

I’m heading there this weekend to TSC 2011.  Then, Monday night, I’m going to the Writers Guild of Canada Screenwriting Awards.  Lots going on here, lots left to do.  I feel behind.  Will I ever get caught up?  Taking my work on the road with me.  Going to Kingston tomorrow night to visit with a friend then heading to Toronto on Friday.  Looking forward to the train ride.  Been a long time since I’ve done that.

Got some good workouts in this week too.  Getting stronger and faster.  My trainer set out a new routine for me for the month of April.  I bought a scale (something I thought I would never do) since I only check in once a month now.  It will keep me accountable.  Also going to work on a meal plan too.

As I said, lots going on here.
