Feb 19 2012: End of Week 1 or 4

This is the end of week 1 of the 12 week challenge – end of week 4 overall… It’s 6:00 on a Sunday morning and I’m writing a journal entry having ALREADY been to the gym. WTF?

Anyway, 4:30am start today, was a little worried about the sore joints/tendons/whatever – these were fine after the warm-up, gave no grief during the training session, and have only now started to hurt a little again. Guess I need to keep moving my arms all day!

Breakfast: 1 slice dry toast with vegemite (pre-gym) Bacon and egg sandwich
Mid-morning: Sliced banana and “Forme” sticky date yoghurt
Lunch: Ham and salad sandwiches (rocket, spinach ,cucumber, tomato)
Mid-afternoon: Sleep 🙂
Dinner: Kangaroo burger and salad sandwich with hand-cut oven-baked chips.

Plain, filtered water: 3500ml
Orange juice: 400ml

Physical, Mood etc.:
Morning – Woke up with arms like lead, positive frame of mind though and keen to get to the gym
Lunch – Aching from the gym, slightly lethargic, had a nap after lunch!
Night – Can straighten arms at last. All starts again tomorrow and I’m ready for it!

Been something of a flat day again – got a few things done on the computer, physically been tired.
