    Day14: March 27, 2007
    Cardio & Core

    Cardio:
    25min ArcTrainer (cardio pre-program)

    Back Extensions:
    BWx12 - BWx10 - BWx10

    Cable Crunches:
    100x20 - 110x20 - 110x20



    Notes: Slept in this morning (about 9.5hrs total). Crazy dreams from the WB lastnight. Took WF on an empty stomach as soon as I got up, got dressed and then headed to the gym with a mix of 2 scoops of Xtend and about 20g of dextrose that I sipped on during the workout. Face tingling was nuts. Only took about 5-10min to feel it. Energy was good and the 25min flew right by. Did another 10min walk on the incline treadmill before I left just to keep the sweat going. Gonna try and do some yard work this afternoon for a second set of cardio (lots to be done). Legs tomorrow assuming I'm not burned out from what I did today - which wasn't very much.

    Been following your log, really nice work -- just a quick question I forgot to ask you...how many calories are you consuming daily? Figured I'd ask since we are about the same height/weight and seem to have similar goals.

    not really sure what my calories are, to be completely honest ... just plug in everything from my first post with my usual meals into fitday and that should give you a pretty good idea ... this is the first time I haven't really been obsessed about tracking calorie intake

    I just make sure to get in lots of protein and at least 3 shakes a day, on off days I lower the amount of carbs I consume and just add more protein to my meals, and on Lower workout days I make sure to get an extra cup of oatmeal in before I go to work in the morning

    seems to be paying off cuz I'm looking bigger and bit leaner ... sorry I couldn't be more specific in my answer, but thanks for following along

    Day15: March 28, 2007
    ME Lower A

    ATG Squats:
    155x10 (warmup) - 215x8 - 235x6 - 235x4 - 155x8 - 155x8

    Iso Leg Curls:
    110x8/8 - 110x8/8 - 110x8/4

    Seated Calf Raises:

    Notes: Weight was 205.0. My worst workout since I started the log. Not sure what happened, but no energy, no focus, just wanted to get the hell out of the gym. No change in diet, but work was wearing on me the day before and I didn't sleep very well. Numbers weren't that great today; no significant changes in the amount of weight or reps. I'll consider this an anomoly (unless it happens again during the log).

    Day16: March 29, 2007
    ME Lower A

    DB Bench Press:

    Pull-ups:

    Triangle Press:

    Notes: Weight was 203.2. I have serious doubts about the accuracy of the scale at the gym this morning. Today's workout was amazing. Finally got back up to the 100's on DB Bench (ran the upper rack from 80-100). My entire upper body filled up and looking big. Wrist is still a little tender from time-to-time, but didn't really hamper any of my lifts today. Went up on just about everything. Definitely today was a night and day difference from yesterday's workout. Energy and focus was back up, and recovery was on point. Got through the workout in about 1.75hrs. Refilled my water bottle once during the workout, and that's becoming the average. Rounded out the morning with some extreme chest, back, and shoulder stretches.

    I wish I could not be obsessed about tracking my calorie intake, I'm just too nervous about consuming too many, or too little calories.

    Hell, if I think I took in too many, I do more cardio. Too little, less/no cardio. As long as I can sit there and know I'm eatting right, and SEE changes, I don't concern myself with exactitudes on caloric intakes. I guesstimate mostly and usually I'd say I'm within 200-400 on my worst days of actual intake.

    Day17: March 30, 2007
    Cardio & Core

    Cardio:
    25min ArcTrainer - Cardio Program @ 15-35 varying resistance

    Cable Crunches:
    110x20 - 120x120 - 120x20

    Side Bends:
    35x20/20 - 35x20/20

    Cardio:
    20min Eliptical (reverse motion) @ 5 Resistance & 3 Incline


    Notes: Once again I forgot to update the workout title for yesterday. It should have said RE Upper, not ME Lower A. That's what I get for using a template and rushing through my updates. Anyway, today's workout was good. As you may already know, I hate cardio but today felt great. I did some stretching for about 10min just to get warm (bitterly cold for spring on the east coast this morning). Energy was up, focus was good, and had a really great sweat during the whole workout. I was worried that I would be lagging because I was up for most of the night tending to my sick wife (who refuses to go see a doctor), but White FLOOD didnt let that happen. Tomorrow will be an off day, but I plan on getting out for some yard work and then some disc golf if the weather is warmer.

    Thats how I'm trying to think from now on -- I spend way too much time obsessing with calories.

    Easy way to do it. Cut out all the bullshit stuff except for occassional cheats. More cardio and harder weights and you WILL lose weight/fat. Even if you lock in at a specific caloric intake, once you start exceeding that with cardio and weight training, weight will come off. It's worked for me since october '06 and I've lost 25 lbs, look like I gained alittle size (definition is much more noticible), and dropped from a 36" waist to a 32" with room to spare. Could probably go 30" but haven't bought smaller pants yet. I'm using the mirror more as my judge and weigh myself in the mornings when I awake. It's all gravy so far.



    Ps. Just moved this weekend so for the last 4 days, nothing but eatting out and at the in-laws (mexican food). Didn't gain a pound and actually LOST 1. Hit the gym today and damn if the 5 day total layoff (save moving furniture) didn't let me come back refreshed, stronger, and with more endurance. It's was sweet all over again.

    So true, but too bad the soreness doesn't agree with the whole picture. Meh, few days and it'll be gone for good. Well worth the price of admission!
