Back to being on topic... Some kind of flu bug has knocked me out the past couple of days. Today, I will do light stretching and maybe band work just to try to get back into some kind of groove.

I had stomach flu last week. Good luck. Took a few days but it all came back.

I am on a diet and am hungry, tired and unmotivated often. Still getting on the stationary bike almost every morning. First ten minutes are uncomfortable, then I get into the groove and things start flowing.

It is quite interesting to observe the interplay of various things in the body. For example, I feel virtually no hunger after cardio for quite a few hours. If I skip it I am hungry much sooner. Also, cardio is very effective to reduce hunger the next day after lifting session.

Actually testing the willpower is sort of fun, even if in a weird way. Couple of nurses at the hospital where I was working yesterday are American, and they brought food to accompany the Super Bowl. All the nice things: chicken wings, boneless ribs, nachos, guacamole, ice cream, sweets and so on. Very tempting, and it takes an effort to turn away from it. But the feeling of control is worth the sacrifice.

I regularly send food to the ER, specifically pie, when my husband works. I'm their favorite doctors wife.

My wife runs a cake business, and I regularly bring cakes to work. Cheap points, very effective.

Still coming back. Dehydration really messed with me.

I did the "The Warm-Up is All You Do Workout" last night. Which meant for me warming up with some sets of military press, then doing ONE set of 4 w. 135 and thinking "Damn that feels heavy...", racking it, and calling it a day.

When I was younger, I would have probably done at least 3-5 sets of that before seeing if there was something else that would go better. Now I know I'll be lifting again the next day anyway and it's not a big deal.

Knowing when to push and knowing when to stop is a serious skill. As I get older I believe that stopping is more often the right thing to do. There is always another day - until there isn't, but then lifting is not an issue anyway :rolleyes:

Spent a week up in NJ with my brother who is seriously ill. My hip is taking every bit of the 8 months the doc said the rehab would take, and am having opposite leg related problems and plus a pec twinge. So my training is not going in any way that I like. So motivation is low and frustration is very high. Thoughts are there of why even train until everything feels good?

And my brain and heart are sympathetic. It is even logical in a strange way. But I just keep doing what I have honed over the years, just show up and do what you can. I know when to shut it down and how to coax a decent day out of mediocre start or how to just walk away or how far I take a super hero day. The truth is even at the top of my game there were always issues. So do the work. Consistency and Perseverence matter most.

I am pretty sure that is the issue. Bad leg seems to do better in barefoot and using the stomp method. Left leg was shutdown 6-7 months before surgery so rehab, strain from retraction in surgery, and just a new hip is a challenge. Was going to take a post surgery picture of leg but it was so bad I couldn't do it.
