Gotta get through this...

Come on...let me get to 275 please.....277.8 today. I needed that boost this morning. Almost a month now of this and if I didn't show any signs soon, I would've been UNHAPPY.

Nevertheless, some improvement.

Last night was fun. 7 games of racquetball (about 1hr 45min) and then a mile at the track (Peter/Adam did more). Then we hung out at Trojan Grounds just telling funny stories and reminiscing about good foods we want to eat but shouldn't! Feelin the annoying stress of school right now...gotta get through this.

adrenaline's still going into tonight's 2 hour racquetball foray.

- 279.3lbs today! Not really a big improvement since I've been here before (once during this diet, 4 or 5 times in life), but i take it more for it's significance - frankly i'm tired of seeing the first two numbers be 2-8.

- ate a 12-in italian sausage sandwich w/caramelized onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, on oats and seeds bread from malibu subs. and kettle chips. i could've picked a healthier choice. wouldn't be surprised if i go back up over that dreaded 2-8-0 mark.

- feelin pretty sore today though. i really pushed it yesterday by upping the weight on everything. oh well, it's a good kind of sore =0)

Feelin good!

- did the 500 crunches that I wanted to
- showed improvement in all of the weights I was lifting
- 45s on the bench
- 100 on lats, butterfly
- 25 on bis, tris

Is it possible?

Well, this is going to be another Gary-downer post. While in the shower I've realized that for the past month, nothing's changed. I'm no closer to my weight goal, the CD has not progressed any further, and I'm just more tired than usual. How can it be possible that I've wasted an entire month?

Yes, I do feel better in shape, but I still weigh the same. My body is still the same.

The diet is going to be running full steam ahead tomorrow, but I'm feeling like that's all I am, full of steam.

I'm going to keep trying things until they work. Whatever it is, I'm going to keep trying.
  • I heard once that Usher (haven't heard of him in awhile) did 1000 sit-ups/crunches a day. 1000! I feel like that would take me two weeks to do a 1000.
  • I heard that holding in your stomach and holding for a little bit, is the same thing as a sit-up.
  • I'm combining the two. I'm going to see if I can do (I'm setting the goal a lot lower b/c I'm not Usher) 500 sit-ups/crunches/holding in my tummy for one day. If I can do it one day, I'm certainly going to keep going. I'm always interested in a challenge. This one might, again, be too lofty. Oh well, I'll let you know how it goes.

Crunch Count
9:00am - woke up
10:00am - 300 crunches
2:40pm - 500 crunches total
(these pseudo-crunches I'm doing aren't as strenuous as regular crunches, but I'm starting to feel it).
