NROL - Week 3 - Tuesday

I must state, for the record, that I really dislike the New Rules of Lifting Break In workouts. And I peeked ahead, and the next phase is no picnic. I know it's called working out for a reason but I wanted to cry today!!! My balance for static lunges is horrible! I bought the Wii Fit so I could work on my balance, but I don't use it. I must make a commitment to that, twice a week, maybe on cardio day. Squats were a little better today because I took a bit wider stance, but I was dying by the end of each set. My form is a little off because of my balance issues - no, I haven't backed off the weight yet. I really have to do that, too. It's so weird that it's the leg exercises that are killing me, when any other time, it's the arms. Bah!

Today was the NROL Break In A workout, same parameters as last week:

squats 2x15x27

[superset w/ full rest]:
static lunge 2x15x5
2 pt db row w/ elbows out 2x15x12

[superset w/ full rest]:
push up on knees 2x15xbw
crunch on Swiss ball 2x20xbw

9:10 AM - apple & cottage cheese; eaten on couch before workout

1:00 PM - grilled chicken bacon ranch salad w/ ranch dressing; eaten at McDonald's; I was starving from running errands all day and I'm shocked I didn't buy a candy bar at the store then order something really horrible *coughdoublequarterpounderwithcheeseandlaargefrycough* from McD's.

4:00 PM - walnuts; eaten at desk; I was going to just push on until dinner, but that would be way too long to go without eating

6:40 PM - chicken sandwich (chicken breast, avocado, light mayo, double fiber bread, American cheese) & iced tea; eaten at dinner table; I was hungry and didn't feel completely satisfied after eating, but I didn't eat more

Hi Becky,

I somehow found your blog when I was searching for something on Google and I am SO glad I did. I did a BFL challenge last year and got great results, but I somehow "fell off the wagon" and have gradually gained back a lot of the weight I lost. I've been struggling with bingeing for so many years now and can't seem to go a week without having at least one episode.

Your blog gives me hope and at least lets me know that I'm not alone. I will definitely be a regular reader!

Thanks for your comment, Hayley! It's nice to know there are others out there with this problem! I'm glad you found my blog, and I'd like to check yours out, but I need to be invited!
