successful day number six: stronger than yesterday.

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

today was pretty dang awesome, if i do say so myself.. and i do!
i woke sore. very sore. extremely sore.
well, more sore in the mind, i guess, now that im thinking about it.
the thought of doing four hours cardio killed me.

so i decided, okay. bike for two hours, walk for an hour.
and do strength training.
so thats what i did.

i did 50 squats, 50 jumping jacks, 100 lunges..
i did 15 exercises with my kettlebell for 10 reps each..
and i also did 15 ab exercises for 10 reps each.
and then i thought, well, your arms dont feel like noodles so why not do the fitstik?
so i did 20 exercises with the fitstik for 10 reps each.

today i got in the water...tracked my food.
im ending up...not sure. its only 8.30.
currently im at 1500 calories.
i reckon ill end up at 1900 calories or so. i think id like some cereal.

i did the upped fiber today. that had some consequences but its okay.
i was extremely hungry today but i kept that in check. dont know how. but i did.

i weighed in at 178 today. a low 178 which was awesome. almost 177.
178.2 or 178.4...i forget. i think it was 178.2.
or maybe it was 178.4
i dont know. doesnt matter.
low 178.

its just amazing, sometimes, how much how much little things can change.
like 2 or 3 pounds.
last week i needed new pants and this week, they are the most comfortable things in the damn world.
last week i had this huge belly that i was covering up even while sitting on the couch cos i was embarrassed and this week its just my belly again.
so thats good.
i think sometimes that 1/2/3 pounds dont make a difference but thats partly how i got into this weight mess to begin with.
i thought oh, its just 2 pounds. its just five pounds. its just ten pounds. just twenty.
next thing i know "oh, its just 150 pounds i have to lose to be at a healthy weight."

im glad i felt so terrible at 180-something.
opens my eyes.

    Man! You are a machine. Funny story, I use to put all my spare change in a water jug.It was small, just change. I filled it up, had to use a dolly to take it to a bank and it totaled $1,100 which I added to the engagement ring fund I bought my wife. so.... it all adds up, no matter how small. emoticon

    Good for you!! What a great blog. I'm inspired! I just got back from vacation and gained weight over indulging in sweets, but I have no regrets, just a mission to get back to good habits.
