Oh, There You Are Apathy

So the last few weeks have been busy, chaotic, blah, blah, blah, etc. I’ve not been working out and I’ve been trying to stay with the meal plan but I’ve had little success there. The conference was a good experience. I decided to take the bike down to Orlando so I took a day off and super-slabbed it down. 10 hours later I checked into a hotel on the Disney grounds (yes, the conference was at Disney). I was so tired I grabbed some pizza and crashed. Apparently I don’t do well being tired and trying to find something healthy. …

I’m heading down to FL this week for a conference. I’m taking the bike and planning on doing a bit of camping before the conference and possible after. I think the hotel has a gym. If not I’ll be focusing more on running. Food choice is going to be … interesting..Did I mention that the conference is at Epcot Center? Yea..Wish me luck!

Cheating?

This morning I stopped by Subway and had 2 Western Egg and Cheese Muffin Melts. As I was waiting while they were being made I started asking myself is this cheating on my current meal plan? I’m sticking with the P90x meal plan for the most part. I’m doing a larger calorie deficit than is called for and still having trouble eating enough to meet my daily intake value of 2200 simply because I don’t feel hungry and when I do eat it doesn’t take as much to fill me up. I’ve been taking a Men’s Multi-Pak vitamin pack from …

The Right Decision

First day back in the gym..I’ve made a wise decision. I felt really good before getting to the gym and all through my workout. I went back with a workout I know well. I started with it last year and lost 35lbs with it and some extra cardio. Doug’s Six Day Cutting Routine I’ve pointed several people to this workout because it makes sense and it *works*. I keep my rest between sets to 20 seconds and reps between 6-8. I start out with 10 minutes of moderate cardio to get the blood flowing and warm up. Then move into …

Miserable

The word I use to describe the last week. Some things I’ve learned this week: I don’t like working out at home I don’t like measuring my food I don’t like working out at home I don’t like working out at home I don’t like working out at home As you can tell there’s a subtle underlying theme…For those that don’t pick it up I’ll spell it out, I DON”T LIKE WORKING OUT AT HOME!!!!!!! It’s gotten to the point that I find myself dreading working out so much that I end up over sleeping and have to workout in …

Some Advice To Myself

Don’t worry about 90 days from now. Worry about tomorrow. Worry about getting your food prepared, workouts planned and then execute. Don’t worry if you can’t keep up with the videos..Those people have all done *at least* 3 to 4 rounds of p90x. You’ll get there..Take your time, focus on form and pretty soon you’ll be where they are.

And Then There Were None…

Days that is…February 1st is upon us. Most of my co-workers have decided to take part in this health challenge and I’m stoked that they’re doing it! Hopefully between us all we have the motivation to keep everyone on track. So far only 2 of them have blogs so head on over and heckle support them. Brandi Scott I wrote in my last post that despite all my planning and the motivation that I feel, I still felt uneasy. This afternoon I hit why I felt that and still do. I’m giving up my best friend. I’m giving up something …

The Final Countdown

Ok..So that title sounds a bit dramatic…You may have noticed the countdown thingy over on the right side there…It’s counting down to 2/1/2011..What’s so special about that day? Well, I’m glad you asked! That’s the day that a few co-workers and I myself committed to start a 90 day workout challenge. Back in June of 2010 I took part in a 90 day challenge through work and while I finished it (admittedly not putting 100% out every day) it was tough to stay on track because I only had myself to hold accountable. I ended up losing 35lbs over that …
