    Thanks. I wasn't at my best, but I felt good enough to go and at least do something.

    Update

    Exercise for the day was walking a few miles. One of these days I'm going to have to start running again.

    Dinner last night was boneless chicken thighs with various spices, topped with panko bread crumbs, and cooked over cherry wood. The sides were corn and brown rice.

    No social plans tonight; tomorrow night we're going to a fund raiser in Manhattan and, as of now, it's going to be a quiet Sunday. Gym both weekend days as usual and starting tomorrow until Tuesday our neighbor's 15 year old daughter will be staying with us.

    TGIF!

    A very leg centric workout this morning; lots of squats, jumps, and lunges.

    No cooking for me tonight because we're going into Manhattan for a fund raising dinner.

    Have a great day!

    Glad the gastro issue was quickly resolved.

    Enjoy your dinner tonight.

    Thanks about the gastro stuff.

    Last night was an enjoyable evening for a good cause. Just so there's not misimpression the fundraisers we attend are not black tie affairs at the Waldorf Astoria and last night was no exception to that. Food options were less than ideal, but I exerted good portion control. We were home by 11:15 so we were in good shape to hit the gym this AM.

    Update

    Five rounds of:

    Rower
    Stability ball rollouts
    Two arm Kb swings
    Double Db presses
    Lateral sprints between cones
    TRX hangs
    Contra lateral Db reverse lunges

    Since it's a Sunday, I doubt our plans will change so I'll go out on a limb and write that we're having veggie burgers, a garden salad, and roasted potatoes for dinner tonight.

    Have a great day!

    I used to make them when dear daughter was in HS and a vegetarian, but I've rarely made them of late. FWIW, they were well received by all and I may start making them more frequently.

    With the exception of some issues with push ups I had a solid workout. Three rounds of:

    Flat bench Bb bench presses
    Flat bench Bb skullcrushers
    Standing Bb curls
    Incline bench Db flyes
    Incline bench Db chest presses
    Push ups
    Planks

    Have a great day!

    A usual easy exercise Tuesday. A walk into town to meet my friend for breakfast, 35 pushups, and later today likely some snow shoveling.

    Dinner last night was pan seared shrimp in various spices, roasted eggplant with garlic, and an additional side of spaghetti squash with basil, garlic, and EVOO.

    Tonight's dinner will involve cod filets; details to be determined.

    Have a great day!

    I wasn't feeling very energized, but still made it to the gym this AM. Five rounds of:

    Single arm Kb swings
    Db two point rows
    Db single arm squat presses
    Heavy ropes
    Squat jumps
    Bicycles
    Burpees

    At some point I tweaked my lower back so I'm going to do some stretching later today with the hope of alleviating the discomfort.

    Dinner last night was breaded baked cod filets seasoned with lemons, a garden salad with avocados, and couscous.

    Have a great day!

    I almost didn't go to the gym because my lower back was still stiff this morning, but ultimately decided to go. I did some extra stretching before starting to work out and wound up doing much better than I anticipated. Five rounds of:

    High plank around the worlds
    One arm TRX mid level rows
    Rower
    Kb goblet hold squats
    Single arm Db squat presses
    Ab wheel rollouts
    Lateral box runs

    Dinner last night was baby back ribs smoked over cherry wood and a side of corn. No cooking tonight because we're going to dinner with some friends. This is the same group we went out with last year and IIRC last year was only the second time that wifey and I ate out for Valentine's Day. Now the count will be up to three. :D

    Have a great day!

    Minimal exercising today. A walk into town to do some errands, some stretching of my hammies and back, and 30 pushups.

    Dinner last night was a lot of fun and tasty. The appys were eaten family style; most of the crowd chose fried stuff and I stuck with my cornmeal crusted oysters. Dinner entree for me was scallops and shrimp with broccoli rabe and I had a couple of bites of wifey's grilled bronzino. No dessert for me, considered a sin by most at the table. :lol: I did have an espresso and during the course of the evening there were two martinis.

    No social plans for tonight and if the weather holds up wifey and I are going hiking tomorrow morning instead of hitting the gym.

    TGIF!

    Wifey and I along with eight others went on a two hour hike. Slow going as it was icy and although some, including me, wound up with their respective butts on the ground nobody got hurt. We went to lunch afterward and I had a burger with a side salad.

    Dinner last night was meatloaf cooked over mesquite wood with a spring mix salad on the side. No social plans for tonight and we'll be at the gym tomorrow AM.

    Have a great day!

    I know you work with a trainer but IIRC you are only meet with him once per week. Does he give you all the workouts for the week or do you create your own workouts when you are not working out with him? Just curious as you do a wide variety of exercises.

    Mac, I work out with my trainer one on one on Mondays. The rest of the time it's in group classes or by myself. The groups vary between five-six people during the week and about fifteen on weekends.

    In addition to having someone give me some suggestions and watch my form I appreciate that since starting with him and once a week with another person I've never hurt myself, something that would sometimes happen while working alone. For the most part it's due to lower weights and more reps with very little rest.

    Exercise for the day is going to be some stretching, a four mile walk with wifey and dear dog, and maybe some pushups.

    Dinner last night was roasted pork tenderloin served in a light curry sauce. The side was a garden salad.

    Have a great day!

    I wrote this Wednesday, but never hit the "Post" button. :bang:The day started with a subpar workout at o'dark AM. Four rounds of:

    Ball slams
    Burpees
    TRX table top rows
    Rower
    Explosive step ups
    Db double squat presses
    Push ups

    After the gym I hit the supermarket and after being there for a short while realized I didn't have my wallet. A check with customer service and nobody turned it in and a check of my car was to no avail. So I went back to the store and put back the items I had placed in my cart and drove home. Nope, I didn't find it there and got back in the car to head to the gym, although I never bring it inside, when another search found the darn thing under the driver's seat. How it got there is beyond me, but needless to say I was very relieved.

    Take away from the above is there's plenty of room for improvement as the day moves forward.

    Dinner last night was grilled rib eyes and roasted cauliflower.

    Have a great day!

    This is today's update

    A fairly average workout this morning involving a lot of different exercises for a full body experience.

    Dinner last night was roasted chicken thighs and a salad.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks. I normally don't walk around with too much $$, but having to replace the ID's and bank/credit cards would have been a pain.
