  1. well starting the 5k training, looking at the pdf file.I decided that the first couple weeks weren't going to be to bad and since i was aiming for mid march to start this originally, i figured this wouldn't start to get too bad for me until that time anyway..going to hit chest, biceps and do some legs since i didn't do them on Friday.probably just do some leg presses, leg curls and side steps with my ankle bands.
  2. http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/422876_10150604562708970_514773969_9451537_1923721002_n.jpg Shoulder and Triceps Like the other days this week got walked to the gym did my workout and walked to work.Might do legs tomorrow after work though.I am starting to get the sniffles a bit, Haven't really been 100% since i got sick and it has gotten a little colder (more normal for this time of year) anyways we will see, I might even wait til Saturday and work my Legs. Barbell Overhead Press 45x15,65x10,65x8,65x5 Front DB Raise 3x10x10 Side DB Raise 10x10, 10x8, 10x7 Assisted Dip Machine 180x10,165x8,165x8 Machine Tricep Extension 60x15,80x7,70x9,50x12 going really light on the raises since they are really just filler and i am going heavy on the presses, Dip Machine was interesting the spotted weight is similar to what i do on the Assisted Chin Up.hoping to get the weight closer to zero so i am lifting my bodyweight, i will get there soon enough though .I was only taking 60-90 second break between sets cause i was runnng a little later than usual and only had about 30-35 minutes to train today.another couple months I might give stronglifts or Rippletoe a try again but since both use Squats as the main exercise I am going to use a very conservative approach to this..went to walgreens to get some drugs for my sinus today and on my way back, I ran for like 30 seconds and didn't feel any discomfort or any limping.I do feel that my Achilles is still tight a little, doctor did say left Achilles would only be 80% of what it was before strength wise, I wonder if this tightness is what he meant.anycase I am thinking about starting the couch to 5k program soon to kick my cardio up a bit.I am thinking middle of march, that way i'll start the beginning stages in a controlled area like the dreadmill than work on jogging outside when it gets warmer..I am pretty cautious though but i am getting stronger and my cardio is improving thanks to the elliptical training that it 'shouldn't be a problem. Dietwise I had 4 1/2 Ugli fruit today (some of the peeps at work wanted to try it so i handed half of it out) for the first time, it was good.it is like a cross between a grapefruit and a clementine and looks like something that was tossed around a bit., a lot of popcorn ( my biggest vice), Zucchini Pasta with sauce, 10 bananas, Cliff Builder Bar, 4 liters of water...i think i am missing something, should have eaten a lot more fruits and veggies but the popcorn sort of raised the calorie count high..Live and learn.
  3. - 4 mile walk this morning. - 30 minutes doing Interval Training on the Elliptical (155 Max HR, 132 Average) Damn this spaghetti is good..Taste better than Flour Noddles IMO!

  5. Got myself weighed this morning and walked my ass to the gym at 4:00 am before i had to go to work..I like doing these really early workout cause i ain't really worn down from working all day, so i think i actually get a better workout this way.Main reason I don't like overtime at work is it screws this up because the gym doesn't open until 5:00 am and when i have to work at 6:00, sorry Jesse you just have to workout after being on your feet for 9 hours..ugh.. anyways enough whining onto the workout stats Back Assisted Chin Ups - 195x12,165x8,150x6,150x5 Lat Pulldown - 60x12,105x7,105x7,75x10 T-Rows - 50x8, 50x9,50x8 Roman Chair - 15,12,12 Back Extension - 50x30,110x25,135x20 after that I did about 8 minutes of Interval training on the elliptical than I took off and went to work..so Walked a total of 4 miles or so and lifted weights all before i started work...I like IT!! foodwise I haven't really been paying attention, I will be getting on writing it down and all but i figure as long as I try my best to eat clean and get my cals in it really doesn't matter, at least for now.

  7. Thanks for doing this Robert, I have been in a funk the last 8-10 months.This was exactly what i needed to get my ass moving again!!
  8. Thanks for the comments everyone.February will definitely be a great month!
  9. Been a lot better,But this week my diet was crap because when i am sick I am different from most people in that I eat more when i am sick than when i am not sick. I think part of the problem may have been eating a lot of fiber too.my body wasn't used to that.Just got to keep tweaking my diet until i find the right combo for me. I got the spiraler cause one of my prizes last month i got was a raw food cook book so i really want to dive into it and try stuff instead of just looking at the beautiful pictures in the book
