It's going great. I just got back from my backpacking trip on the Lost Coast of Northern California. We covered about 25 miles in 5 days or so. We got back yesterday at about 3:00 in the morning. After I got some sleep and a shower in I walked to the store to do some grocery shopping, so that's about 2 miles there. I don't know if I'll get anything in today... lots of studying to catch up on.

I'd like to start getting some more cardio intensive work in to strengthen up my heart and lungs... but I'm not a big fan of running... especially when other people are watching.

I've gotten really bad about posting (especially if I do anything less than about 4 miles). I did 4.7 miles today, about 2 yesterday, and another 4.7 the day before. I need to start wearing my boots because my walking shoes are too worn out... they simply don't provide enough support... and my feet start killing me.

Wow... so I've been pretty absent. And haven't really been consciously doing much in the way of exercise.

I guess... I do get a couple of miles of walking in each day just traveling to and from the farm. And, while I'm working there I often do a lot of heavy lifting and hauling. I have that to thank for the little bit of arm muscle I'm starting to build up.

I practically have the gym to myself... I want to start getting motivated to go (not too much time left in the contest after all).

I also haven't weighed in since... well... whenever the last time I posted my weight was. I keep running into people that I've grown up with, and it blows their mind that I'm in as great of shape that I am. The last time they saw me I weighed in at nearly 300 pounds.

I'm a little anxious to weigh in. I've got to be getting pretty damn close to 200 by now... unless I've gained more muscle than I give myself credit for. 219 the last time I weighed in? I'm definitely lighter now.

In other news... I haven't ridden a bike in probably 6 or 7 years. But I'm really wanting to get a recumbent tadpole trike. Of course, that's only because I can't afford one of these: http://www.go-one.us/. There's a guy in SE Portland that owns one... and I want to take it for a test drive... but it takes so damn long to get to SE by Trimet. o_0 And I don't have the $11,500 to buy one anyways.

Oh well... I'm just hoping I get motivated to really get my ass in gear for these next couple of weeks of the contest so I can be in the best shape for the after shots... ;)

I went to the gym for the first time today! Found someone to go with... kinda flaky, not good for spotting... but at least got me motivated to go. Need to do more cardio next time...

Lifted lots of weights... working on upper body... I'm going to be sore tomorrow.

And on that note ;), the trip to the gym isn't supposed to overshadow the 9 miles I walked last Thursday. But... I seem to have given up on posting my mileage. Why post, when I can be walking? :D

I'm not sure how my slight muscle gain plays into the rest of it all, but I'm sure I'm quickly approaching (or perhaps, have even passed) the 200 pound mark. The lack of scale is really bugging me--you'd think there'd be one in the gym somewhere (but I sure didn't see one).

So many great things to announce... but I suppose I'll save them for another day...

Hmm... I posted a reply... but obviously something went wrong. So, I guess I'll just say this:

I'VE LOST 92 POUNDS!!! I don't think I've been this light since... middle school... o_0

And I walked out to my grandfather's house yesterday... a good 11-11.5 miles. My legs are going to be killing me tomorrow... but it was great while it lasted... :D

I guess I could mention what I attempted to post last time: I just bought my first set of clothes since 92 pounds ago... it's so nice to have something that fits! All handmade from Etsy.com too! I'm excited...

It sure is nice finally getting some new clothes. I've still got some of the big ones though(keep them for laughs and sleeping). The weird thing is that I'm fine wearing some old shoes but the new ones I buy are 1.5 sizes smaller since my feet don't spread out so much anymore.

Well... I've only lost 34 pounds during the contest... which is still a big change, and you can notice the difference. But if you compare pictures from last August to pictures now... :shock: It's mind-blowing.

Yeah... I've noticed that my shoes seem to be fitting a little bigger than they used to. I thought maybe they were stretching out because of all the abuse I've put them through.

I'm hoping to get a new pair from Vegan Essentials soon. All I have are my work boots and my walking shoes (which are a year old, and are falling apart from all of the abuse I've put them through). I'm slowly phasing out all of my non-vegan clothing, etc... like my leather belt and wallet. :pukeright:
