ALLCON!  I was attempting to make some design changes for the site last night  Cool stuff, but wasn't able to post them.  As I was attempting to put things back to normal , somehow I obliterated yesterdays post.  This was irreversible.  Tried to find a cached version on Google, but no luck. 

IF you remember your time from yesterday's "Lemon" workout - please repost.  It will help you gauge improvement for next time.  If not - We'll just have to call it a throwaway day.  Everyone gets credit for posting yesterday.  If we find that cached version we will manually repost.  

Please forgive me.  I'm a hack at this computer stuff. 



Monika (Troy's sister) is going to be here testing levels of antioxidants in your skin today.  Want to see if the vitamins you are taking work?  Plan a little time to sit down with her while you are in today.  It only takes about 5 minutes or so.  Also you can check out her (Troy's and mine, too) fine products .




"I'm gaining weight from two-a-days?  WTH?!  I thought we'd all lose weight by doing this thing?!"

Well, you will - eventually (if ... right?).  The thing is, this two-a-day thing is pretty hard on your body.  You're likely to have a stress response to the beating you're in the middle of.  It's very common in racers and those who push their bodies to their outermost limits.  Back me up on this?  Anybody?  

Scientists believe it is due to several combinations of factors.  First the obvious.  It's likely swelling and inflammation.  If you have sore muscles and joints, you know exactly what I'm talking about here.  It's hard to think of a scenario where this wouldn't impact your weight.  The next factor has to do with replenishing your glucose supply.  Exercise pulls a lot of glucose out of you.  Your body wants it back, because your brain cannot run without it.  It takes 4 parts water to put back the 1 part glucose you used.  This water adds up and is temporary.  The next factor probably has to do with all the water you are taking in.  Hopefully this is a factor.  You really NEED to be taking in extra water right now.  

Anyway, don't let it get you down.  WE do this same 2-a-day thing with many of the dancer groups we work with.  Most of the dancers gain weight (3-5 lbs. on average) by the end of the week.  Some as high as 10 lbs!  It FREAKS them out!  But, after 3-6 days it usually regulates and even goes WAY down.  You just have to be a little patient and let your body calm down.
