Had a good workout this morning that left me energized instead of wiped out. I also took my measurements again, for the first time in a few weeks. I had noticed that about 2-3 months ago that I had gained some weight. Nothing major, but instead of being at the low end of my +/- 2 weight range, I was staying at the high end. My clothes weren’t fitting differently as far as I could tell and I wondered whether the extra couple pounds could be muscle. Before league finals since about January, I had been doing more weight training. Eric suggested I measure myself, though that was of limited value since I had no baseline. Well, after a few weeks of doing little in the way of weights (or much else), I’m down to my base weight and I’ve lost some arm and leg circumference. Now that my back is feeling pretty good, it’s back to rowing and weights for me.
Set up and started registration for women’s league over the past week. I’m considering playing if only to become familiar with all the new ladies that are signing up. And I could really use the second game in my week. I will miss two games due to our trip to Omaha that’s coming up in June. I’ll probably hold off until the end of registration to see how numbers fall out.
Recently watched a couple of movies of note:
Body of Lies: A very overlooked film from last year. A political thriller with Russel Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ridley Scott, directing. Very well written and good looking too.
Next: Nicolas Cage is a man that can see two minutes into the future (based on a Philip K Dick story, obviously). The movie is flawed in some areas, but I have to give the filmmakers credit for ambition. Plus, it’s just a fun movie.
