1/12 – Nothing much going on

The eating is not going well, but today is better then yesterday!

Exercise:
* 1 mile
* 100 pushups

1/10 Great workout

Like the title says – awesome workout (without treadmill too!), but my diet totally stunk today.
I went down to class at my sister’s school — I’m gonna sleep well tonight.

Exercise:
* 100 pushups
* 150 crunches
* 3 sparring rounds
* 6 form reps

Food:
* Domino’s pizza
* Burger
* Trix cereal
* Coke

1/9 morning workout

I’ll be back later
Workout:
* 1.75 miles
* 20 pushups
* 100 crunches

1/8 So much for habbit

Well, so much for my habit idea! I didn’t workout today. I will be back tomorrow.

1/7 a habit?

I really wanted to just go to sleep while reading (actually I did fall asleep!). Then I took out the dog and thought, “Why not!”. I went downstairs and did a mile, and some pushups / crunches.

This might be becoming a habit. I want points for each day I work out – the number of which will be based on how much I do. I also want a multiplier for each consecutive day I work out. Make it a game!

Exercise:
* 1 mile
* 55 pushups
* 150 crunches

Food:
* Pancakes
* Granola
* Raisin bran (with silk)
* Popcorn
* Pop tarts
* Fruit bar
* Chocolate covered plums
* Saltines
(I think that’s all!)

1/6 Pick up sticks

Got a late start on working out today, but it’s all good.
I finally slept through the night, in my bed since moving to the new place. I ended up sleeping pretty late (10am). We got some stuff done today. Got a new couch (my mom’s old one). Walked around downtown Metuchen (awesome!) had some pizza and ice cream. I just finished up working out, and I’m pretty happy with the exercise, pretty “meh” about the food.

Exercise:
* 2 miles
* 50 pushups
* 100 crunches

Food:
* Pizza (twice, sort of)
* Ice Cream
* Breadsticks

1/5 – Shock and Awe

I’m shocked at how badly it’s been going.

My cough isn’t “productive” yet, but I think it will be soon.

Let’s look at my food over the past (awful) 24 hours:

* Last night:
** Domino’s pizza
** Cherry coke
* Morning:
** trail mix (Planter’s)
* Afternoon:
** Domino’s chicken kickers
* Night:
** Cream soda
** Slice of local pizza
** Half a meatball sub

Wow. Looking back – it’s not great, but it’s FAR better then I thought at first.

Now just to get my butt downstairs!

Exercise:
* 3.5 miles
* 100 crunches
* 50 pushups

1/4 update

Getting out of bed was tough this morning, I think my body needs more rest!
I didn’t hit the treadmill in the morning, but I will after work. I did however get some pushups and crunches in before work.
I am still not eating enough.

I also can’t *wait* to get back to BJJ and TKD (saturday for bjj I hope).

*Update* I am not getting on the treadmill tonight. Between my knee and my cough, I’m choosing not to.
I’m also making a bad food choice tonight.

Food:
* Morning:
** Oatmeal
* Afternoon:
** apple
** Almonds (flavored)
** Noodle dish

Exercise:
* 20 pushups
* 50 crunches

1/3 – Sick

I’m sick today! I have some sort of chest cold welling up, and I feel like warm garbage.
I still want to walk for a bit today – I think the movement will help me out. This might be a good opportunity to go to the doctor’s and address a few issues I have. OTOH, staying in bed most of the day seems fantastic.

Food:
* Morning:
** Oatmeal
* Noonish:
** Tacos (home made)
** Coke
* Later:
** Zone bar
** Apple
** Orange

Exercise:
* 1.11 miles!
* 25 pushups
* 25 crunches

1/2, still going :)

Well, I’m still going strong! Here’s today (will be updated throughout the day).
Today’s morning work out was very difficult. I remember when I was going for the six pack, some days would be easy, and others would be very hard. Today was one of the hard ones where each step was an effort. I pushed through and logged 2 miles. So far today is better then yesterday because I got up early and on my way.

*update*
Well, Today is pretty hard. I’m getting sick – I have a bad cough. I’m not “into” my good eating yet, so I’m doing the default, “Not eating enough” thing.

Exercise:
* 2 miles
* 100 crunches
* 50 pushups

Food:
* Morning:
** Oatmeal
** Zone bar
* Afternoon:
** Turkey noodle soup in a bread bowl
** apple
* Night:
** Chips and salsa (this happens when I don’t eat!)
