Howdy folks. Thanks again for all the great advice & training tips. Below, I'll post my first food & workout log, hopefully putting it online will help me figure out how to make it more effective & keep me at it.

well... i've been lame about keeping track of this stuff, haven't I?

a couple of updates, though:

for good news, my new gym finally got free weights & i've been hard at it... starting to show a little progress, I think. i'm eating much more food & drinking TONS of water compared to the period before I started training & feeling good overall.

the bad news is, I don't know what half the machines/exercises/techniques are, so I don't really know what some of the things I'm doing are called. plus i'm not really keeping track of weight/reps, but I can tell i'm gaining a little muscle. that's good, right?

Ok... I've been bad about keeping track, but good about hitting the gym.

In another post I asked about how much cardio was too much, but here's what happened today.

Today I hit the gym & ran for about 30 min on the treadmill set to random incline changes. Ended up going about 5k.
After that I did a brief leg routine which consisted of lunges (w/dumbbells), some declined sit-ups(?) w/ a 25lb plate, then finished up with calf raises.
Around 6 p.m., I hiked about 4 miles with my gf & the dogs (not a daily thing - usually happens about twice a week).

It's now 10:14 p.m, and my calorie count is somewhere around 2,910... The treadmill said I burned about 350-ish calories during the run, & I have no idea how many I burned doing my legs/core & then later during the hike.
