So I've taken almost a week off except for the chipper WOD we did in the park... Showed up for MMA that day too but nobody was there and James was sleeping. I've been super stressed out having to work more even when I want to call in sick because my coworker was on vacation and now my boss is on vacation (meaning more work, etc.)

So I've been sleeping a lot and I haven't written down my food but for a while but it was super clean and boring. Eggs for breakfast, tons of miso soup and chicken broth and salad and little else. Got really sick of it, actually. I slipped up and had a bunch of Dr. Pepper last night. Need to get back on it...

Maybe I'll put my food and training in this log so it'll all be in one place.

So I've been trying to decide what my goals are and I thought I was trying to get my strength up before adding in more metcon. But I've been *really* wanting to add more in lately, so I hope this happens quickly. It does seem like I'm able to push myself a little harder each time I go in, but I've been terribly inconsistent...

I've decided to just go to the gym every other day for the next four weeks until school is out. And also if I need to break down my workouts in half (like I did yesterday) over two days it's okay. My coach told me that was okay, but the problem is that I didn't think it was okay. I'll do too much and then get sick and be out for a while.

SO my new goals over the month are as follows; hopefully I'll get them soon so that I can add in more metcon once I finish school on May 13th.

Front squat 115 X 5 (I'm at 90 X 5)
Overhead squat 90 X 5 (at 65 X 5)
Back squat 140 X 5 (at 130 X 5)

I'm pretty happy with my standing press numbers, so that's not on there.

For the lifts I want to get my snatch up to 95 X 3 and clean and jerk up to 125, but I'm not sure these are as important to get before adding metcon back in the mix, since it seems cleans transfer well from squats and snatches might take forever.

And for kicks: bench at 105, dead at 175, SDHP at something better than last time I tried (which was <75)...

I have to decide on gyms, too. It really depends on when I allow myself to add more metcon and what I end up doing. There's a boxing gym I've been wanting to join forever that would give me some metcon and improve my stand-up game and also they have weights, there's a gym with bumperplates (!!!) dumbbells and kettlebells, but not much else, this CF gym that may open but I don't know when or what hours, and the gym I go to now which has no bumper plates but has a pool, rowers and a bunch of other equipment.

AND I need to get my food together again. It seems like my best bet is to just alternate between eggs and smoothies for breakfast, make a big-ass salad for the week, and make a big-ass soup for the week. Then freeze extra soup for the next time I get sick or am too busy to cook.

Thought the same thing when I read this thread.

This saying quickly sprung to mind:

How do you eat an elephant? one bite at a time...

I think picking a gym first would help you sort out your goals a bit. Then you can go form there....with gym X I can really hit the olympic stuff hard ....that will be my next 8 week focus. Or something like that.
