Workin' on my Fitness

Back on Feb 26 I weighed in at 193 1/4 pounds. I set a goal to weight in at 185 on March 16th. I knew dropping 8 1/4 pounds in 3 weeks (19 total days) would be pretty tough. Mostly because my average weight loss has been about 2 pounds a week. I knew I would have too change some things up in order to increase my average loss to 2 3/4 pounds a week. So ever since then I have been working out twice a day.

I am not a morning person, if I had my way (and I NEVER get my way) I would sleep till noon and work from 2 in the afternoon until 10 in the evening and then come home get drunk while watching Casablanca and drunk dialing girls and only say "Frankly, my dear I don't give a dam" over and over when they say "What the hell do you want is 4:17 in the morning". And then pass out. Yea, THAT would be pretty sweet.

Anyway, I have been getting up at the crack of dawn, (Dawn is REALLY bitchy in the mornings BTW) or at 5:30 to go for a morning run. I run from my house east on 45th street to North on Jefferson to 43rd, east on 43rd to Mill Creek Park, around the park and back for a total of 4 miles. This route used to take me 1 hour to complete now I can do it in under 40 minuets if I really push myself, under 50 minuets if I take it easy.

I also park on the lowest level of our parking garage and take the stairs up to the second level, which is where my cube is located. It's a total of 5 full flights of stairs. I do them 4 times a day.

After work I have been going to the gym and hitting the tread mill for some more running and walking. I either use the "Fat burner" or "Calorie Burner" (no, I do not know what the difference is but do know that the Calorie Burner is a Motherfucker as far as running goes, the first few minuets for the "Ass-master" as I like to call it are almost straight up) settings and set the time for 60 minuets, put on my Ipod and rock the hizous with some Metallica and bust my ass. When I don't use one of those settings I put it on manual with an incline of 0.0%, set the speed to 7.0, with these settings I can run 2.5 miles with out stopping. Which is HUGE considering where I started. I also do some abdominal work for both my upper and lower abs.

I get home about 7:30 or 8:00 depending on how many sets of crunches and leg lifts I do, usually its just 3 or 4 sets of each, but sometimes when I have a shitty day or if I am just feeling like crap or if I have something bothering me (like there had been lately) I will do 6 or 7 sets, and then crawl to a corner, curl up in the fetal position, and suck my thumb and cry until the pain goes away.

I have also changed the diet, I was eating 1700 calories a day, now I am eating 1500 calories. (Except for the time we went to the Brigade game and ate at Sutera's). The tread mill says that I burn 750 to 800 calories depending on what I set it on and how far I run/walk. So I figure I am burning 1600 or more calories just during the workouts, not counting the calories I burn not working out. I am still eating 3 times a day. But instead of a grilled chicken sammich, fries and a diet coke for dinner. (I would kill for a diet coke right now). I am eating a chicken Caesar salad, with very little lite ranch dressing. Eating a salad every night for 14 days straight is getting pretty fucking old, really fucking fast. I am drinking alot more water to keep my stomach from bitching that it's empty, but I am also pissing a WHOLE lot more, like once an hour, if not more plus I have to keep getting up at night to piss.

My day stares at 5:45 and finally ends at 10 when I am so tired that I fall asleep watching the news.

All this working out is starting to take it's toll on me. I am not losing any motivation, in fact I have even more motivation because of the progress I have made in my distance traveled, speed and endurance. It's just that I am so fucking tired that I am having a hard time staying awake while I am at my desk at work, but right now I am wide a wake.

I usually weigh-in on Mondays evenings after working out. I'm not going to tell you what I weighted in at today but lets just say that's looking pretty good that I will make my goal.

I have also extended the final weight in to Saturday morning just so I can get the 2 more workouts in before the hammer falls.

I will let you all know how it goes on Saturday morning. Fo-sho!!
