Stranger still, I've begun, with little effort, to eat healthy food because I want to. I don't like "healthy food" in general. I like bad food. Food that gets you real fucking fat, real fast. That's how I made it up to near 300 pounds in the first place. But the other day I realized I was enjoying a salad with some Mediterranean dressing and sund-dried tomatoes and tuna. I actually love my habitual breakfast, which is Greek yogurt followed up with Irish oatmeal and sometimes some fruit. I've begun avoiding even more starchy and sugary food than I had before.
It's like I'm some healthier pod-person version of me (I even cleaned house... thoroughly. Creepy.).
Anyway, I realized today that I've kind of liked doing fitness-related blog posts--after not liking blogging for myself (as opposed to doing it as a job) for quite some time. So here's an easy one--the workout I did today.
Strength-wise I've begun targeting different parts of the body on different days. Today was mainly chest, arms and back:
- Weighted dips x 8--done wearing a backpack containing 30 lbs of weight plates.
- Kettlebell swings x 12--with my 53 lb (24 kg) kettlebell.
- Weighted push-ups x 10--with the same 30 lb backpack.
- Swings again x 12.
- Kettlebell rows x 8, with the 53 lb bell.
- Repeat same number of swings.
- Dumbbell curls--35 lbs, 12/10/8/6/6
- Regular (unweighted) dips, 12/10/8 (I use The Rack to do dips. It looks like an old person's walker on steroids and is perfect for that exercise).
- Unweighted push-ups, 2 x 15.
