Been 2 or 3 weeks since I last posted so thought I'd post on what I've been up to.
I decided that I really wanted to focus on losing some ugly fat in the run up to Christmas. I knew I was way over weight and had been trying to lose it, but suddenly it really mattered and my motivation went through the roof.
I was getting emailed the Purposeful Primative updates on the guy he is training and was like - wow, how is he losing all that weight so easily while I'm busting a gut and going nowhere. So I decided to take a look at the book again.
So I looked at the diet and started hiking and lifting F Squat / Jerk / DL only twice per week. On my 2nd week I thought I had broken my back DLing. Only for a second - but the crack was so loud and pain so bad I genuinely thought I had completely wrecked it.
I iced it and laid low for a week and I am getting around a whole lot better though it will be a week or to before I'm able to do any real physical training. The good thing though is that I immediately said to myself that I am going to have to be extra good about what I eat now. Usually I would have cursed the gods and binged until I could train again.
I am happy to report that I have lost 8lbs so far in total and 3lbs since I've been injured. I hope to add another 14lbs to that total by Christmas.
I have also found an Iyengar Yoga instructor not far from me and am planning taking a class as soon as the back is able.
