Thanks for reading and for your suggestions.

Swimming would be great, but I can't afford to join any place with a pool soon.

Delivering the 41,000 lbs my small program moved in the past year would have been a challenge on a bike. The other program I work for has received around six tons of food in the last week alone.

Your quads and calves would be so gangster though. ;)

Been doing crunches most days.

Yesterday I Ioaded and unloaded then stacked or shelved 5300# of cased foods. That work exercises my grip and back especially.

Right knee is still not well and calf is still strained from favoring it.

Joined Fitness19 today. It doesn't open for 6 weeks, so I was able to lock in my rate at $12 per month. Also the membership fee before they open the location is $12 rather than $199.

It's been over a week since I lifted, which is a bit depressing. My trip to the chiropractor last week left me with a sore knee and ELBOW. I'd waited a log time to deal with this stuff and it seems things had to to be put back right so as to heal properly, as they were healing in the wrong way. I return for another chiro session today, and hopefully it will be less dramatic. My knee is sure feeling straightened out in a big way, though it didn't enjoy standing on the cold, moist lawn for so many hours at the Obama rally yesterday. I guess after 12 weeks of weights I needed a little break to rest and heal up thoroughly, though my training had already slowed significantly in the previous couple of weeks. I can't wait for my knee to heal enough to hit the cardio hard when Fitness19 finally opens in a few weeks. While I'm not doing cardio or lifting I should be cutting calories.

No worries man, it all seems like a normal-ish fluctuation, especially with all the injuries and niggles lately! You'll be back at it soon enough :)

It's over 2 weeks since I lifted. My elbow and knee still hurt, probably due to the warehouse work I've been unable to avoid. Many tons of canned foods that need all to much handling in my 2 highly inefficient warehouse spaces have kept the injuries from healing. I really want to be ready when the gym I joined opens in a few weeks!

Losing muscle: 212.9 lbs (64 bf, 30.1%!)

It's been 3 1/2 weeks since my left elbow allowed me to lift weights, about 9 since my right knee stopped my running. I could be exercising more, but I haven't. I repeatedly re-injure myself while doing heavy warehouse work for the charities I run, which leaves me tired with negative fitness gains. Acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas, and chiropractic have all been helpful, but ultimately failed due to lack of rest. I'm taking off tomorrow. I desperately want to be well healed in a few weeks when I'll begin a new, recommitted, cardio and weight training program at the gym I joined before it opened. A recommitted hatha yoga practice is what I need most. Food wise I've been back to my bad habits of too little food in the day, too much in the night. I didn't post my weekly numbers yesterday and they follow:
212.8# 63.6 bf 29.9% After this I'll post them monthly.
Thanks for reading and good health to you.

:D

Rest is just as important as training, especially when it comes to meeting goals. Don't feel bad about taking off ANY amount of time to heal up or tend to injuries. Just think of it as PROGRESS towards meeting your goals. I mean if we stretch to avoid injuries and rest inbetween sets to replenish our energy. Then taking time off from the stress that training places on our body is VERY acceptable.

So again Johnny, you're still on track!
