It was a pretty uneventful last week. I got in three good workouts. One with Trevor and two while I was officiating at the state swim meet in Canton.
The hotel I stayed at had a nice fitness room with a treadmill, elliptical machine and recumbent bike, as well as a weight machine, fitness ball and dumbbells. To top it off, there was an indoor pool and hot tub adjacent to the fitness room. I used this facility twice and thoroughly enjoyed it, especially being able to go in the hot tub and pool to relax after the 45-to-60 minute workout.
Eating was not too bad. I had a shake and fruit every morning, a high-protein lunch and normal, balanced dinner each day between sessions of swimming and diving. I tried to have some popcorn at the hotel, but it burned in the microwave, so I guess I wasn’t supposed to have it.
I have lost 37 pounds and 15.5 inches since Jan. 1. Now that swimming is over, I hope to be able to increase my workout frequency and intensity and have a really good month of March. I have only averaged about two workouts a week for the past two months. I have done well, but am looking forward to some really great progress since I will have more time to work out and prepare my food in advance. Also, I hope the weather will break and I can get out and do some bicycling.
