My new home gym is working out great! Best time for me to workout is as soon as I wake up. Then I am primed and ready for the day.

I noticed my face starting to hollow out. This is always the first place where I lose weight, which is nice because it’s very visual.

Mike has asked to join me in working out together. He came over for Monday and Tuesday already. I hope he sticks with it. I know he’s unhappy with the way he looks now. He hasn’t put on the kind of weight that I have, thou. Mostly he is looking to increase his upper body strength. He doesn’t think the food plan is practical for him. He might change his mind after what happened on Tuesday. Heather came in and asked what I had been cooking earlier. I had told her that I had a Spanish omelet from the Eating for Life book. She asked if I could fix her one. I think it made an impression on Mike how easy and quick it was to cook good food. Anyway, I am not going to force the issue. If he wants information, I will help him. But he needs to want it on his own. Pushing my path on others is just wrong.

Speaking of the Eating for Life book, this thing is great. So far, I have tried the Spanish omelet, tuna casserole, and the turkey sloppy joes. All have turned out great. Tonight I will try the turkey burgers. This is a major thing as one of my biggest issues with the first time I tried BFL was how restrictive I was making the diet. It was chicken, chicken, and more chicken. It got boring after a time. Now I have some great foods I can cook up and look forward to.

I do have something I need to work on, my sleeping. While at work, I tend to get enough sleep, and the same for the weekend. But moving from weekend mode to workweek mode gives me one night that I only get about 5 hours of sleep. I could sleep in an extra hour and do my first workout of the week later in the day. Or I could just get to bed earlier on my weekend days. I will have to think about it. But I need to get more sleep on that transition day.

I pushed my cardio up to 21 minutes.

Heather asked me to print out a workout plan for her and to help her with the Bowflex.

Second Entry: I am feeling better now. I was having trouble getting myself focused. I went downstairs and took a quick 1 hour nap for my lunch hour. But now that I am awake, I am REALLY wanting to stop at the YMCA on the way home and weigh in, just to check. Stay on target, Bobbo…..Stay on target. Only 3 days until you can weigh in.
