Weekly Weigh In (week 2)




4 Lbs lost. No big deal. It is due to increased cardio and weight lifting, resulting in water loss, not fat. I have upped all of my weights to 3/4 of the amount I used to lift when I was in great shape a few years back (I am doing 35 Lb one arm curls, sets of ten, I used to do 45 lbs). My cardio workouts have increased in intensity, but have stayed at 30 minutes. I went to the gym 5 days last week. Diet is another story.

I haven't cut out any foods as it would be useless. I went to a Christmas party Saturday night and the Pats game on Sunday. When the holidays are over I'll deal with the food issue, which is always my biggest obstacle to my staying in shape.

Its funny that when I used to go out drinking a few days per week I was in better shape, than now, when my drinking binges are few and far between. I think I used to eat less when I'd go out drinking. Now instead of going out to watch the Sox or Pats at a sports bar I pound down a couple of pounds of boneless chicken wings takeout from the "Hangar" in Amherst or treat myself to a few canolli's and "snickers" cheesecake from La Fiorentina.

I might have to start going out drinking a few nights per week to get back into shape.......NOT! (In my best "Borat" voice)

Next weigh in is Christmas Eve. It will be a moral victory if I can stay at 231.

come on porky, a moral victory? if you can maintain 231? that's like saying your happy with a double bogey...how about toughening up, show a little backbone, when the turkey, stuffing, and gravy come around for 3rd helpings, how about passing..just say no, after all there's cake to eat next...put a ticker up for me, you know where i started...now i am smaller by 8 pounds, putting me at 228, my goal is 225 after christmas...keep in mind this is a marathon and not a sprint, and don't forget show up at the gym tomorrow for your weekly beating in HORSE.....to be continued.................

Ooooh, I was going to say something encouraging, but I think you just got your dose of encouragement right there. Damn.

Don't mind Billy everyone. People with low self esteem and image usually have to lash out at others to deflect attention from themselves. Lets see how much will power he has when my wifes Maple Pumpkin Torte shows up at his door XMas morn. He, He...

I am going through the same shit man. My annual physical just showed that my blood pressure is high and my chlorestoral is through the f--king roof. So I have to get my ass back in the gym too. But man, those Red Stripe's and the meat lovers pizza from Pizza Hut be calling me. And I can't leave out the big slice of chocolate cheese cake from the cheesecake factory.
Lord just kill me now!!!
