11/07/13 A note from my gym
"A scale can essentially only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That's really about it. It cannot measure your brain, your heart, your beauty, your talent, your purpose, your strength, your character, or your l... Read more
My food intake has really been awful. I'm talking a whole bag of chips or whole box/thing of cookies awful. I keep justifying overeating by thinking it's okay because I've been going to the gym quite a bit.
It's really gotten out of han... Read more
The guy who normally runs my Monday and Wednesday evening gym classes has been gone all summer. I think he gets back sometime in September.
But the person filling in is incredibly, and terribly, and insanely attractive.
This has be... Read more
07/17/13 It Could Be Worse
And so my friend, I hear you say that life is s**t
You think that love must always end in pain
You hate the fact you need a man
Someday, you'll need a nurse
Be glad you're well, you fool
It could be worse
You b***h cause you're... Read more
I was weighed at my gym yesterday, and I weighed in at 170.
It's really kind of bothering me.
That's definitely the heaviest I've been in quite a few years.
I vividly remember the 180's.
I haven't weighed myself for a f... Read more
A few nice things.
1. 2 people complimented a new shirt I'm wearing today.
2. Yesterday I really wanted some deep friend chicken. I thought about it a lot, looked at online menus and nutritional information. I never realized how ma... Read more
This morning, my doctor wanted to do an ADHD screen. Although I've never considered this before, I can really see--in retrospect--why she might want to do this. Surely, if I did have it, it would be Inattentive Type vs. Hyperactive or Combined... Read more
Wasn't going to blog today, but one of the articles on the frontpage caught my attention (which is rare). About workout clothing.
I generally wear compression underwear, nylon shorts, 100% cotton socks, and a 100% cotton tshirt. Since I'... Read more
I've got to make some changes to my diet.
Things I've done well:
I've started eating breakfast every day
Here are my goals:
-Eating protein at every meal. Protein at breakfast is the hardest. Greek yogurt is ok. I've fou... Read more
My job regularly takes me to the city's homeless shelter. Having done a year-long internship at The Salvation Army, nothing at the shelter is really all that shocking to ... Read more
Spent the weekend in Missouri with my family. My sister said my arms looked really strong, so that was nice. Overall, I ate wayyy too much food. On Friday night, my sister had a baby shower. I ate some of the leftover food.... Read more
I've been thinking a little bit about body composition/shape lately. Someone at work pointed out how this guy at our office has a really big stomach--like unproportionally big.
I guess I never thought much about this un... Read more
I think things are going well. I've really been craving thin crust pizza and breakfast tacos lately. But not at the same time. I'm thinking of ways to incorporate those things in my diet.
My workout yesterday was fun an... Read more
Well, writing last time how I hadn't stepped on the scale in a long time wasn't a great idea. It just made me curious enough to step on the scale. Not that scales are bad. On one hand, I don't want to worry about numbers. O... Read more
I think things are going well. I honestly haven't stepped on a scale in months. I guess there are days I think my clothes fit well and days they don't fit as well. I'm still not where I want to be though.
I really think the diet could be... Read more
