Week 12

Week 12 is off to a good start.  Calf muscle is a little tender, but it really only effects me if I'm sprinting.  I've upped my cardio to a minimum of 40 minutes per day, which means I have to get to the gym earlier so I can get home at my normal time to help get the girls ready for school.  Alarm goes off @ 4 AM, I'm usually out the door by 4:30 and lifting by 4:50. 

I'd like to forget week 11 though.  Two misses at the gym, one due to an injury and one due to a post-Willie Nelson hangover.  I didn't even drink that much, but a combo of hardly drinking at all lately, going to sleep about 5 hours past my normal bed time, a baby that doesn't care if you had a late night who was up early, and a full day of soccer put the gym out of the picture.  There was also a few days where I didn't get my six meals in.  While that may sound like a benefit, it's really a huge negative.  As much of a contradiction it might seem to be, you have to eat to lose weight.  Like sleep and workouts, meals are highly perishable.  You can't make up for missed ones.
