Up late once again today which is fine by me...I'm back on 9 1/2 hour work days tomorrow (we don't get paid for lunch how nice)...so I'm enjoying the rest and trying to recoop from this cold...starting to feel a lot better. Starting tomorrow I'm going to go directly from work to the gym that way I can't come home and make excuses...hopefully it won't be too busy then but we'll see. Prior to the holidays I was fine with coming home and changing and going or waiting a few hours and going but I'm getting back on track so I need to eliminate any potential for excuses to not go....my dogs are going to hate me because they are used to my current schedule but they will adjust.

Not sure if I'll workout today...I'm still trying to give my body time to adjust to eating healthy again, on a schedule, getting my vitmains in my system and totally recoop...the bloating from all the sugar and junk finally seems to be going away. Need to get motivated to do something around my house so I'm not sitting on my butt all day...but it's cold and gloomy and i'd love nothing more than to just stay wrapped up on the couch all day.

M1 - wheat/flax lavash w/sol veggie burger, hummus and herb salad mix
M2 - apple nuked for a minute sprinkled with cinnamon
M3 - meal replacement powder, almond milk, raspberries
M4 - raw organic food bar
M5 - shirataki noodles, boca burger, yellow bell pepper, mushrooms and hot sauce....(yes hot sauce goes on everything in this house!)

So as I was drinking my third meal I kept thinking wow this tastes different...so after I went back in the kitchen I looked at the almond milk which I had just bought...uh it expired in May 2008...YIKES!!! I haven't gotten sick yet...

dont work your cold back up again. :(

9.5 hours plus gym may be a little much right away.

Even the energizer bunny needs a recharge. :lol:

M3 - wheat/flax lavash with vegan lunch meat, & herb salad blend, broccoli & cauliflower tossed with vinegar
M4 - meal replacement shake

Snack - celery and hummus

Worked out at home tonight...

30 minutes on my x-bike

Still not feeling great...coughing a lot so didn't go hard or for very long

Hello from Ohio. I use my training log as a confessional some times, too. Relax, you're among friends now. We're all in it for the long run, so don't sweat the small stuff. I wish I was as close to my body-fat goals as you are yours!

Some of the omni boards I posted on were so critical and catty...it's so nice to be amongst like minded people with similar goals!!

My intermediate goals include losing bf enough to be a strong 85 kgs and lowering my resting HR significantly.
My long term goal is to live long!
My ultimate goal is the elimination of suffering for all sentient beings, but I'll probably take a few weeks to get that done!

I haven't posted in a long time...until recently my diet was good and workouts were good...I've been going through a horrible rough patch...was conned in an investment deal and could lose everything I have, money I don't and destroy my credit...so I'm on a three day binge and am determined to get back on track tomorrow...at least I hope so...I can't afford to grocery shop and who knows when I'll be able to but I guess that's ok because I guess that will end the binges.
