Hey there, Dad! Welcome aboard! Yep, I think you've found your support group! We may not "kick you in the behind" but Mike does wield a mean hammer...

Speaking of Mike, he's off to a grand start for the week!

Thanks for the translation, Ian! ありがとうございます!

I echo what Robin said regarding those with health challenges. Do what you can and take care of yourself. Great job on your week so far, Robin!

Goals for the Week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!): yes, yes
  • Maintain adequate daily hydration: yes, yes
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 1200-1550 calories: 1303, 1361
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 800-1300mg sodium: 940, 859
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 16g fiber: 12, 13
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 30g protein: 39, 37
  • Some sort of physical activity 4x during the week: Mon=nothing, Tues=Taiko ...(1/4)
  • Study every day: yes, yes

Even though I never set it up in my goals list (so you folks weren't aware of it), I've been doing bicep and tricep work daily since the beginning of May. I figured it would be a big help with the taiko and as well as with the yoga. Additionally, it *might* help me avoid (or at least minimize) the dreaded batwings after I get down to my hoped-for weight/body-size. So I've been diligently doing 3 mini-workouts, 3 sets of 10 each. Last week, those mini-workouts fell by the wayside along with so many other things. I resumed yesterday and oooooooo this morning I can really feel it in my shoulders blades and back! Oddly enough, the bi-and triceps feel fine.

Hey, Mike, can I claim the 3 workouts, 3 sets by as my 3-fer?
