When will I learn…

… that it’s NEVER easy despite how I think it looks written out? I think I should just make a template for these posts as I am about to say again that I didn’t feel like working out last night. I was drained from the day and it’s activities. With all of that, I didn’t want to do anything at all.

The workout last night was all bodyweight (except for the v-twists):


15 – 9 – 6

  • V-Twists (20lb medicine ball)
  • Lunges
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Push ups
  • Sit ups

I really thought, for some reason that I’d get this done in 10-15. I was wrong. Once I started in on this one, I knew it was going to be closer to 20. In fact, it was 19:23.

If you add it up, it’s 90 reps of everything (v-twists, lunges, and mountain climbers were actually double b/c you had to the amount on BOTH sides), which is more than a 21-15-9 workout (double in fact as 21+15+9 =45).

Again, ab work was my weakest link and slowed me down the most. The v-twists followed by sit ups killed.

In other news, last night for dinner, I tried my hand at some home made gyro meat. My grandmother recently gave me a vertical rotisserie that she had just sitting her garage (boxed, unused). I found a recipe on foodnetwork.com by Alton Brown, which, cannot be bad. I was a little nervous about how it would turn out, but it was really just delicious.

As we are paleo and hardly ever eat dairy (i.e. no Tzatziki sauce), I made a lemon/olive oil dip for the meat. Overall it was delicious and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Here’s the recipe if you are interested:
