Day 80 Workout


Well then, I’ve been on vacation for a little while, which shouldn’t mean no working out and no food tracking, but, it most certainly did. I honestly didn’t care, though I’m feeling it now. I haven’t weighed myself yet, but I’m sure it’s not a pretty picture.

I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things. I decided since I ate so poorly, I need to focus on some cardio for now. So all of my workouts will be predominately cardio for a while so I can drop those extra pounds I acquired.

Here’s how my workout today went. I didn’t feel the intensity I would have liked, but I did it, and I got a pretty good sweat going. There you have it.

  • Rowing
    • 2.26 Miles @ 15 Minutes
  • Elliptical
    • 2.5 Miles @ 20 Minutes

What is your strategy for coming back from a vacation? Do you workout throughout your vacation no matter what?

Have a great day everyone!

Day 68 Workout


Today’s workout is actually what I was supposed to do yesterday. I didn’t have the energy to do that workout then, and I wouldn’t say I really had the energy to do it today either, but I forced myself.

Worth noting, according to me anyway, I increased my “Crazy Leg Workout” dumbells from 12.5 to 20 pounders. That really set this workout apart. I was just dripping after the CLW (Crazy Leg Workout). I just know I’m going to be feeling that one tomorrow, and Sunday.

One last note. Since I’ve been working out more, I am hungry all the time. Doesn’t matter what I eat. As soon as I’m done eating, I am hungry again. I’m trying my best to eat good, healthy stuff, but holy crap! What’s up? Rhetorical question. I do know what’s up, but I don’t like it. I’d rather eat and be satisfied. I literally ate my breakfast and lunch by 10am today. Had to go get more food at 2pm because I knew I wouldn’t make it.

Well, now that that is done, here’s my workout for the day. Short and sweet.

  • Leg Extension*
    • 10 @ 120 lbs
    • 8 @ 160 lbs

Day 67 Workout


I was going to do my leg workout today, but I just didn’t have the energy to do so. Instead, I chose to do cardio instead. It went really well and I did manage to do my new Ab workout again, which was pretty harsh for my ego.

Anyway, here’s my workout for the day today.

    • 15 MInutes @ 1.9 Miles
  • Rowing Machine
    • 10 Minutes @ 1.5 Miles

Day 66 Workout


This was yesterday’s workout. I would have posted it yesterday, but my workout was pretty late so I didn’t have time to post this.

I decided to switch things up a bit just to see what might happen. Typically I start my upper body workouts with biceps, so I tried moving that to near the end of my workout. That sure helped my Bench Press and Incline Press lifts. I was able to increase my reps by a couple per lift which was pretty sweet. I think I’m going to keep my workout like this for a little while.

  • Bench Press
    • 10 @ 115 lbs (35’s)
    • 8 @ 135 lbs (45’s)
    • 8 @ 155 lbs (45’s & 10’s)

    • 10 @ 115 lbs (35’s)
    • 8 @ 135 lbs (45’s)

Day 64 Workout


I almost forgot to post this today. I cut my weight lifting short a bit so I could throw some cardio in. I was off from work on Friday as we had a wedding to go to so no workout Friday through Sunday, which also meant I ate horribly. Well, I ate really well, but not when your’e trying to maintain a specific weight. Thus, today, I needed some cardio. It went really well, and if I’d had more time I felt great so I could have and and wanted to do more. Oh well, such is life.
