I need a break.

I can't follow anything that requires weights right now. My house is half packed up, and a mess. I'll start NROL over when I get into my new apartment and get my garage set up. I can't do any videos because my kid won't pick up his freaking toys. I'm going to start going for runs, to get out of the house. Ugh, this sucks.

NROL4L - Week 3 - Monday

No workout today.

Food kind of sucked too.

NROL4L - Week 3 - Sunday

I'm still modifying my workouts a bit because of my toe. For the most part, it's fine, but any pressure on the top of it (such as for Bulgarian split squats) bothers me. So today, I did assisted pistols instead. Oh, and one of my core exercises actually should have been done Friday. I messed up.

Swiss ball mountain climber - 2x15 each side
Spiderman plank - 2x15 each side

explosive elevated push up 2x8

RDL 2x15x85 lbs
suspended push up 2x15
assisted pistol squat 2x15 each side
inverted row 2x15

Food:

Let's not talk about food. I had an emotional breakdown at work, where all I had access to was candy bars.

NROL4L - Week 2 - Friday

I had a light English muffin with butter after I blogged last night.

Today was Workout A, still with some modifications because of my toe.

plank - 2xMax
side plank - 2xMax, each side - Oops. I was supposed to do Swiss ball mountain climbers.

box jumps - 2x8

front squat - 2x15x50 lbs
3 pt db row - 2x15x25 lbs
step up - 2x15xbodyweight
push up - 2x15 - All on my knees because of my toe.

I didn't do a metabolic workout today. I wanted to run but it was way too fucking hot outside.And I really bonked on my weights because the only thing I had to eat all day was watermelon. I ate some cheese & pineapple in the middle of my workout.

Food:
coffee w/ milk
watermelon
cheese & pineapple
turkey, bacon & avocado sub
vodka & beer

NROL4L - Week 2 - Wednesday

I did my 5K with no major problems. My toe didn't hurt at all while I was actually running. It felt great to run and there were times when I was really fast. When I hit the trail into the woods, that is when I started having problems. I kept landing on the stupid rocks, just in the wrong place, and that hurt my foot, so I walked most of that part. But on the road, yeah, I was loving it. It was hot as hell and muggy, so I had sweat on the lenses of my glasses. I didn't even think to wear my contacts. I enjoyed this run very much.

Food:
coffee w/ half & half - I stopped by 7-11 after the race before heading to my brother's house to babysit. I really wanted a donut. I did not get a donut.
watermelon
diet soda cake - Yay, portion control again!
hamburger w/ avocado on light English muffin
movie popcorn - Not much...it wasn't that good.

NROL4L - Week 2 - Tuesday

My toe is really bothering me today and that concerns me because I have my 5K in the morning. I really wanted to run it, but now I think I'm going to have no choice but to do an awkward stumble.It is actually more bothersome to walk. I can trot fairly well if I keep weight off my toe. Oh, this is going to be a disaster.

Food:
coffee w/ milk
homemade protein bar
turkey & bacon wrap w/ spicy mayo & guacamole
baby carrots w/ ranch dressing
leftover easy beef & potato casserole

NROL4L - Week 2 - Monday

I had a light English muffin with butter after I blogged last night.

I wasn't going to work out today, since it's not a scheduled lifting day, but I decided to do tomorrow's workout today. I have to change my muffler tomorrow after work. And I actually only did three of the exercises, so I could stay off my toe. It's still sore and I need to run Wednesday.

suspended push up 2x15
RDL 2x15x75 lbs
suspended row 2x15

Food:
coffee w/ milk
homemade protein bar
easy ground beef casserole w/ potatoes & salad w/ cilantro lime dressing
diet soda cake - Again, practicing portion control :)

NROL4L - Week 2 - Sunday

No workout today. My toe is a lot better and I'm hoping to be ready to run by Wednesday. I won't be making any personal records with the Freedom 5K but I would like to run the whole thing.

Food:
coffee w/ milk
homemade protein bar
brown sugar chicken w/ brown rice
cookies - Good portion control!
