New Rules of Lifting for Abs - Week 6 - Thursday

Of course, as soon as I posted last night that I wasn't hungry for anything, I wanted a peanut butter & nutella sandwich. I probably could have done without it but I will take the 8 point hit.

front plank & pulldown 1x12 each side
side plank & row 1x12 each side
Swiss ball jackknife 1x12
cable kneeling cross-body lift 1x12 each side - I can't do this one because I don't have the equipment, but I'm going to keep writing it in

shoulder press 1x8x45 lbs 1x6x50 lbs, 1x4x55 lbs, 1x8x50 lbs

dumbbell step up 4x8x30 lbs each side
one-arm dumbbell push press 4x8x30 lbs each side

dumbbell offload squat 2x8x10&20 lbs - switch sides on second set
(assisted) mixed grip chin up 2x8 - reverse grip on second set

metabolic workout: dumbbell swings (10-12 swings per minute for 10 minutes) - I did 12 swings per minute with a 20 pound dumbbell. I'd never done swings before. I really had to focus on using my hips to drive the movement and not my arms.

coffee w/ skim milk [3]
banana & cottage cheese [5]
salad w/ cheese, hard boiled egg & homemade dressing [9]
apple, ham & cheese roll up [6]
homemade beef stew [10]
cheese omelet w/ bagel thin [8]

I used all of my daily points and have 22 weekly points remaining. I think I'm going to have to start figuring activity points again because I am hungry! I'm not even craving bad food - just food!
