a couple more 555s

May 5th, 2012 at 09:05 pm

May 3 - did manage to get the 1 liter of water by drinking the rest at bed time.

May 4 - got about 3/4 l of water, got 8 hrs sleep, ate avocado green, cucumber and lettuce green, red cabbage, orange carrot, along with a dab of yellow egg salad on a cracker. Trainer had me do a new exercise: the overhead kettlebell swing. I didn't concentrate on locking my wrists so I was dangerously tippy. After a couple of sets he had me switch to three-quarter high swings. He also had me do one-arm snatches with a 20lb dumbbell...(good practice for lifting turkeys out of grocery freezers), but those weren't new. Good day all around for the 555.

I'm about to use the last of the beef - beef shank and bones for beef soup. Plan on making a simple beef vegetable soup with at least five colors so I'll set myself up for a few days next week.

    Nice work! I have thought it would be a thrill to do more than one of my 5s in a single day...since mine are all similar things (workouts) it's less likely, but could happen!

    How are the kettlebells treating you? My wife got me one for Christmas, and it leads to more residual muscle soreness than almost any exercise I have ever done. Hey, as long as I have some insurance of results, it's totally worth it, and I love the simplicity.

    Kettlebells are the only way that I got rid of my back fat ... those little lumps that the bra strap squishes. They are a deceptively good workout, as you have noticed. Let your hips help provide the power when you swing and it will be better. I'm moving my way up on them - the single arm snatches with a kettlebell vs a dumbbell are particularly hard because you have to snap your wrist just right else your forearm gets whacked.
