Week 58. No Challenge this week.

January 26, 2013

A week ago I was at 210. Today I’m at 209.

I ended up not doing any challenge working out this week. I spent Saturday and Sunday sick with a cold, felt very weak Sunday morning. I felt like I wouldn’t get anything out of weight lifting that morning.

Monday morning I woke up with the cold pretty much gone and a sore back. It was bad. I could barely walk on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday it was slightly better, I could walk at a normal pace. Yesterday it felt like everything was getting back to normal but felt like I didn’t want to push things since I still had a little bit of back pain. So yeah, a pretty crappy week. I stuck to the food though and now I’m ready to start week 9 tomorrow morning.


C4 W8. Week 57.

January 19, 2013

A week ago I was at 208.6. This morning I’m at 210. Gained a little back this week. Oh well.

I have a cold now. I didn’t work out yesterday morning. Just not feeling very well right now. I tried to stick with the food yesterday, but I I was just not feeling it, when it came time to work out. I think part of it was that I was crazy busy yesterday. I got called in to work at 3:00 yesterday morning and was there for an hour, fixing a machine for over an hour. I just had a hard time dragging myself out of bed yesterday morning.

C4 W7. Week 56.

January 12, 2013

A week ago, I was at 209. This morning I’m at 208.6. So yeah, I would say that I have recovered entirely from Christmas and New Year’s, considering I only gained a little over a pound during the holidays, it wasn’t too hard to recover from the holidays. I would like to maybe take some time off next year during the holidays, but I will have to see where I’m at in December. Overall, I have done pretty well getting back to my normal routine for Challenge number 4.

Today I’m heading to Chicago for a day to see Mystery Science Theater 3000 creator Joel Hodgson at the Mayne Stage doing his Riffing Myself thing. I was supposed to stay at a friend’s apartment nearby, but both his him and his wife have had the flu lately and so I’ll be staying at a hotel nearby instead.

I have a new girlfriend as well. So far, it’s been a lot of fun, but the first few weeks are always the easiest time in a relationship. The hard part is keeping it going over the long haul, which I have never been very successful at. No idea if it’s me or just always picking up on the wrong girls…

C4 W6. Week 55.

January 5, 2013

A week ago, I was at 209.2. This morning I’m at 209. I’d say the week got off to a rough start. I did good on my non-free day on Saturday. On Sunday, I probably had too much to eat at the annual family party. On Monday night, I had some beer, two Tom and Jerrys and some junk during the big annual fondue party at my aunt and uncle’s place (and by big, I mean about 6 people).

But with nothing going on the rest of the week, I was able to get back on course with nutrition, which has worked so far. I missed a meal last night because I fell asleep right after dinner. Oh well.

Continuing with the renovations I started last January. So yeah, going to get more “work out” than I normally get…
