You still look really good. When my mom moves out here you should give her some tips. Good luck on your job hunt.

Finally...a decent day and ran into guy from the gym tonite that was sent by an angel many months back prior to huge event just recent. he was the one that said I couldn't quit...I had to do the competition I entered last Oct. It would set a standard of not following through. I love seeing this guy at the gym hottie dad, but no spark. we are just friends.
45 cardio am. stairmill• Warm up (3 sets of hyper extensions: 15-20 reps)

• Barbell dead lifts (3 x 10) 50#

• Abs 2 x 50 – Hanging leg lifts
really into stir fry w/ shredded spuds and vegan parmesan w/ tofu (I use 1 tblsp earth spread, . I eat a whole Lb thru out the day of tofu
GF bagel and too much almond butters/ organic jelly, no sugar and carrots. food is almost always clean. talking self out of binges but I had GF gumdrops today. Not a whole bag, but two good handfuls.

Thanks Robert.
Giving up potatoes for lent, even tho' I am Jewish ( ha- kidding, don't practice anyways)
and Giving up gumdrops, GF bagels and cream cheese, too. And anything I know I will binge on...I hafta white knuckle it, as until I get a job, the weeks I don't have my 50% custody, I binge...the weeks I have my daughter I am ninja, stealth perfect on diet and training. So, correlation and tie inis EMOTIONAL...and emotions are NOT predictors of whats real. Time to buck up and quit being a f-ing baby. Oh, and EnviroKidz Leapin Lemur bars and cereal...I will make that my next cheat in two weeks! Off to cardio and legs will be later.

My mom lives in Connecticut. I am flying out in May to move her here. She could probably use a friend, and someone to further influence her diet toward Veganism. (:

I'm really craving cinnamon toast crunch. I might buy a box of the Cascadian Farm variety next week.

SAT- I walked 5 at the beach- fast 2.5 on boardwalk. it was a workout in itself, the peeps on bikes was crazy- sunny and gorgeous, so dodging bikes. 2.5 in the sand on waters edge, playing dodge on the waters edge. I am so so lucky!


SUN: Legs
2 x 25 roman chair dsit ups
leg extensions 4 x 15 @ 70
can't do my regular squats and luges as my insides are messed up bad..no downward pressure- I feel like my guts will call out
plie squats 4 x 25 w/ 20 # dumbbells
plated leg squats (machine) , thats what it was called i think 4 x 10 @ 140# ( 70 each side)
leg curls 4 x 10 @50 #
butt blaster 3 x 15 @100#
calf extensions- on horiz leg press 4 x 15 w/ 90 on each side...maybe it was 135 on each side
Something! and y food is better. i am out of binge mode, kinda.
tofu, kombucha 9lots), fake meat and soy yogurt. (i put cocoa powder and agave syrup in it, my bad)- but no potatoes, gum drops or rice bars or almond butter- all bad foods for me right now

I think, and maybe its me- or if anyone reads this...we (peeps that wok out- and for me its been years...upon years- some more than others, but always SOMETHING- to go to 4 or 5 days a week..and from 85 mins to 45 mins ( or 8 and 10 ,miles to 3 to 4)...we are so so hard on ourselves. I have such a warped , twisted way of thinking I am fat, or a lazy person if I take a day off ( in this case two or three). and its still more than many. I am glad I have it, but I think SpartanDiva eluded to it a bit on a post as well, ...its a "constant"...it nags...somedays I find I measure my self worth on whether or not I did cardio or lifted- which has been a good thing--I wish I could channel that same drive to my career and personal life. Maybe I did...hmmm..time to write a best seller and not dawdle on a forum. I worked out- these were my workout thoughts, and all is good.

part two:
went back in the eve. consciously eating less and better- motivated by so many others here when I read stories, see pics, and video. some amazing committed peeps at this forum. So eating a LOT more protein like i did when i trained for my competition.. Tjoes has a fake meat that is uber high in protein- not doing any protein powder right now as it tears my stomach to pieces , and I still have a soft spot for the organic smooth peanut butter (not even buying almond right now- dangerous, and do you know what you can do with agave syrup, cocoa powder, peanut butter and rice puffs (organic)?(i had a luna today and yesterday was a box of choco drizzle envirokidz bars- almost like candy- quite yum, but a whole box is 720 kcal- and mostly carbs- so, -when I carb- I carb- so amping on protein and I can see the difference.
workout
* Incline press, 3 x 15 w/ 5# on ea side ( my right anterior head of my shoulder is jacked up with all sorts of crinkly noises and a modicum of pain attached) and I used big boy bar
*supine all the good benches were taken w/ a bar, so I did supine bench w/ #15 dumbbells, but its all my right shoulder could bear
*dumbbell fly's 3 x 15 w/ 8- again, my shoulder is screaming!
*1- armed scull crushers 3 x 15 w/ 10#
*dips on cybex- 3 x 10 w/ 45# ea side
*tri ceps pull down 4 x 10 w/ I forgot to look, but Great challenge to self w/ weights- so was the dips
can't do my push ups. My shoulder hurts that bad

Good luck with the job hunting, keep your head up.

Some really solid training in here, keep up the good work! BTW, was going to ask you how you perform your 1 x arm skullcrushers? Dumbbell I presume?

Thanks Forklift on the career stuff! It is solid training...I am at a maintenance mode right now--but my mentality screams for, "faster, better, leaner, stronger:.

Yes, I use dumbbells. I had a stress fracture years ago on my front left forearm ad have never been able to do the lie down , with a barbell kind I see the really cool, strong people do at the gym since. have tried. So, now, I have cuyt my weights back even more because of my right anterior deltoid. Sucks getting old, but beats the alternative-...whatever that may be.

Quite the impressive physique in the avatar.

Today- so far-
45 mins on the stair mill- level 16. Its so engrained.
