For motivation, I've also decided I need to read the trainer more often. Jamie Eason has daily videos that I feel I need to watch in order to keep me on track.
Anyway, tomorrow is a new day, and Monday begins a new set of phase 1 workouts. The new workouts are set on a 5 day split rather than a 4 day split with 2 leg days!!! Ahhh!!! The workouts look a lot tougher, and I'm looking forward to working my ass off. I have 22 days until Warrior Dash, and my goal is to kick butt on my workouts and stick to my diet 99% of the time until then. I would really like to make it to Warrior Dash without any cheats, then I can make that an epic cheat day!
Enough talking about the future, let's talk a little bit about the last two days. Yesterday, I worked. I was able to get through my Shoulder/Abs workout and about 10 minutes on the elliptical before I needed to deal with some important family stuff. Today I spent the day on Lake Erie fishing with my dad.
I have been wanting to go walleye fishing on the lake for a while now and finally got a coinciding day off work to go. My distant cousin Ross is a charter boat captain for Bigwater, and he took us out.

With a lot of Ross's help, I was able to reel in a 12-plus pounder that was 31 inches long! This thing was a tank! I had so much fun, and I think I actually got a tan!
|Still can't believe my hand was stuffed up in it's gill!|
|Me and my Dad|
|That thing is looks like it's the size of me almost in this picture!|
I realize fishing is not necessarily "food blog" related, but it was a pretty good workout and a ton of fun. If you like fishing and are near Lake Erie, I would definitely check out Ross and Bigwater. Also, I was starting to notice some thigh definition in this photos, which is pretty exciting.
I was going to go to the gym and run for a little bit, but I was so zapped from the sun that I had zero energy! Tomorrow I am going to try to do some sort of cardio even though the trainer says it's a rest day, because what's a little cardio going to hurt, right?
