For the year of 2012, I have made a yearlong commitment to better fitness and health that will change my life forever. The way I see it, I've been "talking the talk" for way too long - it's about time I start walking. The plan is to use workouts from The New Rules of Lifting, gradually start eating better, and try out plenty of fun healthy activities along the way. Here's how I fared this week:
This was supposed Week Four of Eight in the New Rules' "Hypertrophy II" Phase. The Hypertrophy point is where muscle-building takes center stage, so I'm getting YOKED.
So why no lifting? Well honestly, I didn't really have the time to get to the gym this week. I had multiple projects coming due at the same time, and work requirements piling up left and right. I made it through alive and with good school/work performance, but I binged my way through it. This is a pretty bad precedent to be setting for my life, and I would like to see what I can do to mitigate situations like this in the future.
I ate really poorly this week in terms of clean eating, but I only binged once - so hooray on that front!
That's all for Week 16, only 36 more to go!
