July 24, 2004

Been a few days since my last entry. I have been delivering training and I don't like updating my journal while it's on the projection screen.

It took me two days to assemble the Bowflex. But I finally got to use it this morning. My arms are quivering from the work out. Not bad at all. I did about 5 minutes of cardio on the elliptical and then did an upper body work out on the Bowflex. It took me longer than I had planned on but part of that is getting used to switching things around and the different exercises. Plus, my Tivo server was on the blink. So I had to stop and fix that. Otherwise I would have had to work out with no music. YUCK.

Yesterday I borrowed the "Eating for Life" book from Eric (buff guy I work with, BFL success story). I tried out one of the recipes last night. Everyone loved it. I made extra so I could eat on it for the next few days.

Last week, I just did my two shakes and then a dinner when I got home. Today, I am bumping it up to 5 meals. Two shakes, two frozen left over meals from yesterday and I will cook something tonight. So roughly my time line should play out like this...

5am wake up
5am work out
6am drink 1 water to cool off and take multivitamin and flax seed oil
6am Shower, drive to work
7am shake
10am meal
1pm shake
4pm meal
6pm drive home
7pm dinner

Of course there are lots more water bottles mixed in there. I am drinking it like mad during the day.

I am making Saturday my weigh in day. So during my lunch break, I am going to go to the YMCA and use their scales. I will enter my weight in later. The scales at home just aren't that accurate. If I lean forward or to the sides at all it changes my weight by up to 10lbs. I am going to accept 270lbs as my starting weight but I haven't checked it since that day.

Second entry: My arms are really feeling it. This mornings work out is doing its thing. I hope I can make it to the end of today.

One of my coworkers, just told me that he is doing the Atkins diet. Everything I have read about that makes me cringe. All that mess can't be good for you. I like my plan. I feel good when I am on it. Atkins people always look so wore out.

Oh, something I forgot to mention from yesterday...I missed my workout completely. I had stayed up late Thursday night to get the gym setup, so I didn't get up at 5am to work out. I figured I would do it later in the day. Then when I got home from work, I cooked, ate and went upstairs to pass the time while my food settled. Well I fell asleep on the couch and didn't wake up until 11:30pm. So I just went to bed. I could have worked out but then I would be all wide awake and it would throw my sleeping off for another night. Better to just go to bed and work out at my planned time (5am).

Third entry: Well that sucks. I weighed in at the YMCA during my lunch break. My weight was 272lbs. I am pretty sure I lost some weight over the past two weeks, which meant I was probably at 275lbs. That's just too depressing. I am going to go with 270lbs as my start weight. 275 is just too close to 300. Steady Bobbo...stay focused. Okay...here are my new goals...
