Deadlifts Followed By Granola

Writing this to you while having a rare after-training giant bowl of granola and almond milk. This is really BAD idea if you want to lose fat.


Because one serving of granola has a lot of calories...and a serving of granola is tiny. I probably had 6 servings in the bowl. It can easily add up to 1000 calories. So again, not good for fat loss.

On the bright side, eating granola is like a deadlift workout for your face.

Plus, as a "skinny little balding runt" (as one anonymous person once called me on my blog), I can get away with it. Gotta turn the negatives into positives, right?

Haha, who's laughing now, anonymous blog reader/hater?! And I'm wearing a hat, too!

But seriously...

Today's workout:

1) Power Clean

2) Sumo Deadlift

3A) Rack Pull
3B) Ab Wheel

4) 1-leg calf raise (5 second eccentric).

Fortunately I don't have to do any snow shoveling here in Toronto...lots of it today. But it is time to take the dog out for a walk.

Today's resource:

Great workout, but wacky video. It was filmed in a really narrow hallway, I think

Today's kickbutt mindset tips:

"You have to move beyond that vision of the way your life has always looked and begin to picture your life as you want it to look." - Larry Winget


It's easy to get down on yourself for making mistakes, but that doesn't help anything. So learn from the mistake and move on.

(Besides, no one noticed...everyone is too busy worrying about their own mistakes!).

Identify the obstacles in your life and plan 2 solutions to overcome each one. That's a better use of your time than feeling down.

Snow time,

Yeah I sore off granola a long time ago and immediately zap it off my clients' diet when they come to me. But, I have found that if they can control themselves and really want to have it once in a while, they can sprinkle a little into yougurt and fruit for a little crunch and that isn't as bad as eating 6 servings of it! :-)
