  • Today:
    A good long session on the stationary bike.  I've also been good on my food intake.
    I got on the scale and I'm at a solid 210 lbs.  My goal would be around 190 (which is where I was this time just last year.  That's 20+ lbs.

    Two years ago I was clocking in at 245 lbs. so I'm still on the right side of the scale.
    190 is very doable.  It's just harder now that I'm getting married to a woman who likes to cook.
    Hopefully, I can convince my fiance to get on the same wagon with me.  It's always nice when couples can support each other.
  • "Likes to cook" and "likes to cook healthy food" don't have to be mutually exclusive. As a matter of fact, you should be able to eat much better with home-cooked food!
  • Monday-nothing.
    Tuesday-walked back and forth to work.
    Wednesday-walked back and forth to work.
  • 25 minutes of jogging (and a little walking).
  • Killer lunchtime back and biceps workout at the gym with a couple of coworkers. Still sore from Monday.
  • @pjperez - even too much *healthy food* is too much.
    I lost over 40 lbs. because I walked more, gave up on eating too much and had less food in the house.
    Eating less in general (even the good foods) is still a good routine for me. Even low calories are still calories.

    I'm an opportunist.  The difference is being influenced for good or evil.  Hahah!  I keed, I keed.
  • Killer workout yesterday, so lighter today, which was easy to achieve because the gym was packed when I got to it, so it was harder to get on machines. the rowing machines are usually free though, and I got lucky when a spectacularly good looking woman got on the treadmill beside me... just little in front and to the side as I looked up with just a small turn of my head. inspiring, I can tell you that!
  • Yesterday was a wash - still fighting a cold and the 13 hours a day I'm away from home suck my motivation dry.  Unless you count trying to move the elliptical train upstairs, which nearly resulted in a sprained back and a crushed wife!
  • edited March 2012
    The physical priority when you have a cold is to get over the cold. Start in again when you're all better.
  • @Jimmie_Robinson i don't know if this is for you, but I'm trying it out (I'll let you know how I do), and I think it's free: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ also available for android and iOS.
  • @ShawnRichison - I'll give it a try.

    As for today... I fell off the wagon a bit because I could NOT sleep last night.  I've been up since 2:30 AM.  At this point hunger took over so I ate waffles, eggs, and a cheese tortilla (flour, even).  Bad, bad, bad... and no work out.  And right now I just want to sleep.

    Sadly, I also need to work on my book.  I'm painted in a corner.
  • The wife uses myfitnesspal. She loves it.
  • New low weigh-in this morning: 197lbs... nice to still see a "1" on the front of that, for a week running now.
    25 minutes on the track, 10 minutes in the pool.
  • @JasonAQuest - Nice!  I hope to have a "1" in front again.
  • Walked to and from work again today. That's three times this week and three times last week. Good for the calorie burn and the environment!
  • I ran 3K today. First time in a couple of weeks.


    I've been struggling getting back to a regular running schedule since I fell off the wagon at Christmas. Work and then a cold slowed me down.

    Like a lot of people here I've been struggling with my weight the last few years. At 6' 2 180 would be my ideal. I've been yo-yo-ing between 200 and 210 the last few years with a spike at 220 a few years back. I'm probably at 210 right now though no official weigh in yet.

  • Ran 3.75 mi tonight, though not terribly fast - about 11:12/mi. Followed it up with some crazy core work.

  • One of my goals is to break the 10-minute mile. :)  I ran it in 6 minutes once in middle school.  I got chased a lot as kid.
  • @jasonaquest

    I'm not sure whether that's funny or sad.

    I ran about 9:50/mi my last 5k. If I can somehow keep it around that for the half-marathon I'm training for, that would be rad, but I have a feeling that won't happen.
  • To develop more speed/faster pace, start incorporating interval training in your workouts. Its also one of the best ways to lose weight.Your body has to work harder to recover and rebuild, and thus expends more calories over time. You also build cardio and muscle because your burning it, going into oxygen debt, burning muscle. Your body rebuilds it, plus more.
  • What do you mean by interval training, Marv?

    I'm always having to run at the end of my strength training, because I'm too exhausted to lift after running.
  • My next gym window is probably Sunday, before Game of Thrones, and I'm going to shoot for 3 miles. I've already blown away my record. I'm entering new territory here, and loving it.

    Perversely, the run actually gets easier toward the end, rather than harder, as my body adjusts to what I'm doing to it.

  • I'm always having to run at the end of my strength training, because I'm too exhausted to lift after running.
    And that is the correct order of operations. Although some would say not to mix your weight-training with your cardio. Also: This is why you work your larger muscle groups first, because they require more energy.
  • @MarvinMann That's part of my half-marathon prep. I also do it on the regular as well. But I'm also focusing more on endurance over speed right now. I used to be a sprinter, so this change to long-distance running has been ... interesting.

    Of course, it also helps that I don't smoke anymore and I'm in much better shape than when I was a young lad. Sadly, my hairline can't say the same.
  • I exaggerate (a bit) about how much I got chased.  Running was just the one athletic activity I had the physical coordination for.  In fact, the one time I did a 6-minute mile it was because I was chasing someone, trying to keep up with this hot kid who did intramural track. Story of my life: he left me in the dust. =((

    Although I am rather fond of the hair on the top of my head, I'd gladly accept a receding hairline if it came with a receding waistline.

  • 25 minutes on the track, 10 minutes in the pool.
  • I've been slacking.  Staying up VERY late hours, waking up even later... less exercising and more snacking.  Stress isn't helping, either.  I have to get back on track.
  • Although I am rather fond of the hair on the top of my head, I'd gladly accept a receding hairline if it came with a receding waistline.

    You can (reasonably) do something about one, but not the other. It's a constant battle for me. My real hurdle is trying to cut back on carbs & processed food. It's hard to do because I've been vegan or vegetarian until the last few years, when I started eating fish. But, really, bread is still my curse.
  • I am a lacto-ovo-poultry-seafood-vegetarian. That is, I avoid eating mammals. Mostly. Reptiles, amphibians, and insects don't come up much.
  • Did an hour of core and upper body after work.
