Weigh-In 8-24 + workouts

232.8 Lbs --- Up .8 lbs

Honestly I'm pretty pissed about it. I messed up really bad last week. I think I actually lost a little bit this week, when I weighed myself last week I was 233 and some change. I gotta get my eating under control, I need to start taking lunch to work again. I was doing that for a while and doing pretty well on the scale, but now I eat out all the time, and I'm thinking its at least partially responsible for the bad numbers I've been having lately. So now, here I am, one week away from my goal date, and a whopping 3 lbs away, yet again. Last time it was 4 lbs, so I guess I'm ahead of the game, not. I have to kick some ass on the workout front this week, and hopefully taking lunch will help.

Sunday Workout---- Went on a run, got about a mile out and my shins felt like they were about to explode, so I had to turn around and limp my ass home. It sucked big time. Can't remember the numbers exactly, but it took me like 35ish minutes and was a total of like 2.1 miles, well over half was walking.

Monday Workout--- Didn't want to run, due to the aforementioned shin issue, so I was going to go up and ride the stationary bike for a while. But then I was reading my daily emails from MensHealth.com, and they had this "15 minute workout to shred your abs" or some such title. It ended up being a short Pilates workout, so I decided to do that instead. And damn was it ever difficult. It consisted of (my short explanations) one legged push ups, a sort of reverse crunch where you start in the up position and lower your torso towards the ground, and a sort of bicycle crunch where you tap your feet on the ground. As I said, it was pretty tough, I was definitely sweating. I think I'm going to make it part of my normal routine. I'm also thinking about purchasing a Pilates dvd and doing that as a total body strength workout. I'll have to look into that.


  1. Dude, you're eating my dust. Better get it in gear or I'm going to be in the 210's before you crack 230. Then the taunting will commence for reals...

  2. Yeah I know for reals. I'm getting it in gear. Obviously I've been struggling, but I'm turning it around.
