Tried lifting in the morning.not sure how i feel about doing it in the morning, feels i have to rush things so i can eat breakfast before work.But on the other hands I am fresh right out of bed and don't have 8-10 hours of being on my feet to hamper my results.So not sure what I am going to do from now on.tomorrow with assisted pull ups i have to lift after work at the gym but all the other days i can do in the morning or afternoon.something for to think about i guess.

Anyways work went well today with just a 8 hour work day (rest of the week is 9 hours)..energy level seemed fine all day..pain free today from legs, usually two days after legs I get that my legs feel like jello feeling but not today.that is about all I have to say..

I can't thank you enough Michelle for your advice and encouragement!! Thanks Karen, there are quite a few people on here that are inspiring, most have different goals overall but the one thing most have in common is having good health.

RANT//// Couldn't eat my oatmeal because the dishes weren't done from the other people in the house the night before..I refuse to clean up after other people especially a brother who only works part time who after making his dinner catches a case of the lazies..this shit just stresses me out!! bad enough having the junk food, soda and all that crap i am trying to quit eating be all around me but just to leave the shit in a pan caked overnight.Pisses me off.one of the reasons i buy can amys soups is because I almost always just pour them out of the can without heating them because i am rolling the dice whether or not a pan will be clean anyways. /RANT

Anyways energy levels were pretty good today after i cooled off from walking to work.I am really loving these Raw Bars from GO RAW, Used up the rest of the Garbanzo Beans.I will make another batch tomorrow :augenroller: (maybe)..I have the next couple days off from lifting so i will do a session of cardio both days than just use Sunday as my day off..

Thanks Robert, I enjoy working with Michelle..It has been a fun month so far getting my ass back on track.


add a kombucha multi green 60 calories to my total...

I fell behind in your log. When did you have your tendon surgery? Are you able to do much with lower body exercises? Looks like you are walking so that's good!

How are you doing, Jesse? How is your strength and stamina during your workouts? Update me when you get a chance. Are you sleeping any better?

lobsteriffic - I had my Tendon Surgery done in June and Ankle Ligament surgery in July..In October I tried to start back up doing Barbell squats and I wasn't ready.I think it put a lot of pressure on my right leg and ended up messing my knee up , doctor had me on Celebrex to help bring down the pain and swelling.It feels better now but all I have done since than is calve raises, leg presses, and lately i started doing DB Goblet Squats..and i also started doing various Pilates like exercises for my leg, Lying Leg raises, side leg raises, putting the band thing around my thighs and walking sidesways (though i am going to look for the one you put around your ankles cause it always moves..

Michelle - sent you an email!

Workout

  • Walk to Work 1.3 miles
  • Elliptical Trainer - an average heart rate of 127 BPM, Max was 151 I believe for 30 minutes


Nutrition


  • Breakfast: Quinoa,Hemp Protein,Olive oil, Dates, flaxseed meal, Bolthouse Carrot Juice
  • 8:00 am: Sunwarrior Ormus Supergreens
  • snack one : Amy's Low Sodium Lentil Soup
  • Lunch: Garbanzo Beans, Spinach, Bragg Kelp seasoning, Bragg Nutritional Yeast,
  • snack 2: Pure Wild Blueberry Bar
  • Dinner : Garbanzo Beans, Tumeric seasoning, Ginger seasoning, Dates, Carrot Juice
  • snack 3: Vega, Hemp Protein

Workout was great..it was nice to actually break a sweat doing cardio.now to get my ass up the gym to actually do it on a regular basis..Something I am eating is giving me an upset stomach...I am thinking it maybe the lentil soup, Some Yogi organic Herbal Ginger tea seemed to have helped a little.Otherwise energy level was pretty good despite small quota numbers at work.Not entirely my fault when the tickets i am picking are small, didn't get bitched at or anything so no biggie.I am falling asleep easier nowadays,being somewhat of an insomniac for the last 15-20 years or so it is a relief to fall asleep around the time i want too,Now if i could just quit waking up at 1-2 in the morning grrr.I am hoping to get off the Trazadone soon though.hopefully within the next few months.

Bought some Organic Peanut Butter from Arrowhead Mills today was thinking of spreading it on some rice cakes or something, i dunno know yet.stocked up on some larabars, local grocery store has them 10 for $10.00 right now so i got a few..

Great log! It's very inspirational. I see your Daily Intake Totals. What website / app are you using to track and calculate those numbers?

Also, I'm guessing you're a Red Sox fan? Awesome! Tough year for them but the Pats & B's are back! I grew up in Mass. and live in NYC now.
