4/365

Did balance drills again today, still having trouble walking backwards with my eyes closed on a rounded ledge. Other than that my muscles are still recovering so I was not able to work out.

9/365

Balance drills. Toe was hurting too much for me to be comfortable working out. Also I am removing the duck walks from my workout due to the mechanics of the movement needing me to support myself on my toes.

11/365

Balance drills, I am getting pretty good at them. I was counting my calories, but then I had a chipotle burrito so I definitely went over. I have been trying out foam rolling, and so far it is working really well. I feel better and less sore after I use it. I also bought some new parkour shoes that will arrive at my house the day of the Jam on the 5th. Should be fun.

Time to start updating this again.

So I have some sad news for me. I had to put the 365 day parkour challenge on hold. Even though I was trying to keep it to as low as an intensity as I could at the end of the day the pain in my foot would not go away. I am going to have to take the next 4-5 months off to try to heal it. All I want to do is parkour, but I am going have to hold myself back until I am ready. That has not prevented me from thinking up routes and challenges to do in all the places I visit. So I will have plenty of things to try out when I am healed.

This means all I can do is upper body, core strengthening, and stretching. And a limited variety at that. But so be it, I am going to keep trying to live the dream I have had since I was 12 years old... Do traceurs dream of vaulting sheep?

Literary references taken care of, I am going to start counting my calories again.

Breakfast
>French Toast: 330
>Bacon: 180
>BANANA!: 120
>Milk: 120
Lunch
>Chicken and Avocado Burrito: 525
>Kiwis: 126
Snack
>Sourdough: 160
>Spinach Dip: 100
Dinner:
>Spaghetti: 800

Total: 2461 cal.

I was not paying attention to calories and over ate by 661 calories. The spaghetti was so good though... I will just have to watch my diet for the next week so it is not a huge deal. My target again will be 1,800 calories a day. Though I will probably only eat 1,600 tomorrow to balance today's amount. That way it will be about 4,000 calories over the two days averaging 2,000.

Side note: I am totally making my personal text "Do traceurs dream of vaulting sheep?"... Nah, never mind.

I got to get back to homework so just a quick update.

Breakfast
>Eggs: 140
>Oatmeal with Strawberries: 213
>BANANA!: 120
>Milk: 120
Lunch
>PB&J: 460
>Mixed Veggies: 120
>Black Berries: 66
Dinner
>Seafood Quesadilla: ???

Total: 1700>x>1119 cal.

I only ate a forth of the seafood quesadilla. I am confident it was less than 500 calories, but I have no way to measure it. Oh, and I switched to a whole grain bread. It's meh, but it does not taste bad.

Side Note: Yea I changed the personal text to "Do traceurs dream of vaulting sheep?" Something to be said for originality.

I strained a ligament in my arm a few days ago, so until that heals I will not be trying to do push-ups or anything.

Breakfast
>PB&J: 440
>Milk: 120
>BANANA!: 120
>Cantaloupe: 50
Snack
>Fig Bar: 220
Lunch
>Eggs, Rice, and Mixed Veggies: 500
Dinner:
>Veggie Burger: 340
>Kiwi: 84
>Crackers: 30

Total: 1904 Cal.

Seems I ate 104 calories over what I expected to, need to pay attention to the amount so I do not keep doing that.

Working on building new workout routine where I can still let my foot heal. This unfortunately means until it heals no leg days. My goal is to use body-weight exercise to strengthen my joints and help lose weight. Also I want to slowly increase my flexibility (need to strengthen and stretch muscles together, if I get to flexible without strengthening than I might have a higher risk of injury). I am going to start sleeping 9 hours a day. I started taking vitamins so I know my foot is getting the calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium it need to heal. Since I have to start going to bed at 8pm I am going to figure out my workout routine tomorrow. I have not been satisfied with sitting around waiting for my foot to heal, so I am going to prepare for when I can move fully again.

Breakfast
>Boiled Eggs: 140
>Cheese: 70
>Vitamins: 30
>Apple: 100
Dinner
>Milk: 120
>Chicken and Avocado Burrito: 525
>Eggs, Rice, and Mixed Veggies: 430

Total: 1415 cal. Under ate, will eat more to make up for it tomorrow.

Do not know how many calories I ate today.

I know I keep putting off figuring out my workout, but I am going to build it and actually do it tomorrow. I am going to do it on a MWF schedule, so that means I will be able to try it out tomorrow to see what I need to adjust.

>The Work Out:

Warm-Up

Cat Camels
Tophold 3x10s
Modified Crunch Hold
Reverse Row Sitback 3*3
Knees To Elbows
Push Ups
Finger Strengthening

Wrist/Hand/Finger Stretches

>Some things I noticed:

Lower back hurts (preexisting condition)
Mid back tight
Wrists poping (no pain)
Shoulders not sore (need exercise for shoulders)
Neck sore (could be from posture)
Blood flow in wrists good
Feel Pretty loose

Will add more push up variations when I get stronger to work chest and shoulders.

Do not feel like typing out what I ate so I am just going to go with the amount of calories:

Total: 1761 cal.


With that out of the way, my reflection on what I need to change about the work out I did yesterday. First off I am going to move my hand and wrist conditioning to the days I am not working out. I was not having any problems with my hands today, but I feel my hands and wrists are not strong enough to take the workout and the conditioning on the same day. I also think I am going to skip the body weight squat progression as I need to use my feet to balance doing the movements which may be aggravating my injury.

Off the topic of training I am going to have to spend tomorrow thinking about where I am headed in life and what I am doing right now... can't do it now if I want a decent nights sleep.

Finals are coming up and I got caught up in stressing over them. I have not been working out or keeping track of my calories. So my goal is to start back up again tomorrow. For now though I need to go to bed.
