weights, deadlift
Thirteen pushups in a row with my hands elevated on the weight bench. I creep ever closer to the elusive push up from the floor.

I also did some messing around with power cleans for the first time in a while. I think I probably need to ask my trainer for some pointers on technique. I can clean 65lbs. fairly easily, but I'm not comfortable putting more weight on the bar until I'm more confident of my form.

As I was leaving the gym, I overheard this conversation between my trainer and another client.

Client: Trainer, I have to confess! I had half a bagel this morning.
Trainer: That's good. That means you had some carbs.

This is part of the reason why I train with this trainer, and not the dude who goes around telling people not to eat carrots because they have "too much sugar".

Dear god, yes. Like my ballet studio, where they took one of the students aside and told her that, contrary to what she thought, she would do better to gain five pounds rather than lose them.

Unless you're in training for a serious competition, that kind of obsessing over your diet isn't worth it.
