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..

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.

I am going to have to take a week off from the lifting part of my workouts unless i can get a good grip i dunno,tried lifting a dumbbell and it was a no go, finger is swollen from where they injected the the stuff that numbed the finger so they could stitch it, so i am still not sure if i will be able to get a good grip even the swelling comes down.because i ain't suppose to be smacking my finger on anything ..grrr tried the bands and it hurt my finger, only thing that didn't bother it to much was a kettlebell but that is only like 20 pounds ( i do have two of them)..probably just do 3-4 all body thing or something..i dunno


tomorrow is my day off so i will figure things out, contact Michelle and see what she thinks...

I'm so sorry to hear about your finger, Jesse. Just do what you can. But if you have to, lay off the weight training and get in as much cardio as you can this week.


Your weight is still steadily dropping. Yay!! Be patient and keep at it. You didn't put on the extra weight in a few weeks; so it won't all come off (permanently) that quickly. You're doing great! Keep it up! : )


I'll take a look at things more closely and send you an email shortly.
