267 lbs - Typical day after cheat day.

Did upper body today. I'm trying out something new. I decided to add a extra set of reps on to my pyramid. Before I would lift doing 12 repetitions, then increase weight and do 10 reps, then increase weight and do 8 reps, increase weight and do 6 reps. Then do my super sets of 12 reps and then another 12 reps but of a different exercise that targets the same muscle group. So it looked like this...

20 lbs - 12 reps
25 lbs - 10 reps
30 lbs - 8 reps
35 lbs - 6 reps
30 lbs - 12 reps
30 lbs - 12 reps (but with a different exercise for the same muscle group)

Anyway, I added a mini set of 3 reps at a higher weight. So it looks like this...

20 lbs - 12 reps
25 lbs - 10 reps
30 lbs - 8 reps
35 lbs - 6 reps
40 lbs - 3 reps
30 lbs - 12 reps
30 lbs - 12 reps (but with a different exercise for the same muscle group)

I want to push the muscle as far I can so the extra set is there to tell me just how much I can lift once my muscle is primed. I'm only going to do it on upper body for now. I got a pretty good workout with it today.

This evening I took a long walk. This is the first time I got to use the Zune. It was a good walk. I went way farther than I normally do. I even made a call to Dad to catch up with him while I was walking.

My eating was messed up today, however. I just wasn't hungry so I didn't eat much. I did do a protein shake after my workout. So I at least fed my muscles.

I'll eat better tomorrow. And I need to get some meals made up or I'm going to run out this week.

I got some work done on the website today. Still getting my journal parsed out so I can post it. I'm caught up to around September of this year. I'll try to get some more down tomorrow. Some of the links are busted and the year is wrong on some of the entries. Oh, I put up a graph showing my weight loss (and gain). I want to put up some links so people can comment on the different entries. I'm not sure how to do that yet. I might need to consult some web dev sites. I'll get it figured out.

Anyway, its getting late and I'm starting to get sleepy.
