My eating plan: low carb
My exercise plan: weight training 3-4 days a week

Weigh-in and week in review at the beginning of each week.
~get down to and maintain 130 lbs. The weight/size I feel best at.
~regain strength/muscle lost during last year when battling bad carpal tunnel and tendon inflammation issues.
~be healthy, energetic, and enjoying life.
: After a fast day: Weight~ 137 lbs.
3-14-12: I haven't done rack-pulls in AGES, so I tried today, doing 205 lbs. which was what my working weight (10-12 reps) was a couple of years ago. FAIL! I couldn't get the weight off the rack, not even a little.
So I ended up doing reps with 135 lbs. :'( I'll start back doing them until I get my weight back up to 205 lbs.
3-15-12 I never expect to bench press 170 lbs. again...but I am determined to at least get my working weight up to 135. Sadly today I got 115 x 10. I had very bad carpal tunnel problems last year and so had to do very gentle training. Unfortunately that brought on some other problems...so I won't be pushing myself as hard now, but I do need
to do some respectable weights.
I also need to get me one of those tank tops that say, "The older I get...the better I was."
137.8 Waist: 27.5/ Hips: 36.5/ Thighs 35.5 top thigh: 20.75
Week in Review: I missed my shoulder weight training day. After working in the garden, I was too tired. I didn't have peanut butter, but I did over indulge in cheese. Drank more water, but not 64 ozs. daily as planned. :\
So, I could have done better, but all in all...I'll give it a 7 out of 10 pts.
3-19: I quit eating yogurt because it's another something that I won't
control. There, I said it. :| Anyway...I found some that expired on the 13th...I'm almost done eating it, and then...it's on the FORBIDDEN list along with peanut butter and cream cheese. Got my leg work-out done...YAY!! I hate you, squats, and I always will! :|
3-20: I went up to 145 lbs. on the rack pulls this week. I'm not pushing hard...I got time. And...with the injuries I've had to deal with, as I'm getting older (56), I've learned to be more careful, and listen to my body.
3-28: I went up to 155 on rack pulls today. If I can keep up this progress I'll be back to 205 in no time.
What else...oh, I did kneeling pulldowns. I liked them.
