How a 250+ Pound Couch Potato Got Healthy

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

Hey guys.

Well I just came out of a world class funk. Gosh, I'm not sure how it started, but I sure know how it continued. I woke up Saturday morning at 162 pounds, 2 pounds up. By Saturday night I just didn't have the motivation to do much of anything. Sunday morning, I was still 162. I went to a Christmas party in the afternoon and ended up eating much too much bad stuff there, so by the end of the day I just felt like crap. I went to bed at 8:30 with the hopes I'd feel better in the morning, but Monday morning I felt the same way.

Lucky by afternoon, I felt fine but because I had to go to the DMV, ended up not exercising at all. Today's much better, thank you very much. I was 160 this morning, back to where I'm supposed to be for this, the second week of metabolic adjustment. I'm just afraid I'm going to gain weight this week.

So yeah, I'm having one of those weeks. Next week's Christmas! Alright, here's today's workout:

Warmup, 3 sets of 5 reps, w/45lb bar
* Overhead Squat
* Squat
* Good Morning
* Barbell Lunge
* Romanian Deadlift
* Bent-Over Row

* Bench Press, 125lbs, 3 sets of 5
* Single Arm Dumbbell Row, 45lbs, 3 sets of 6
* External Rotation, 25lbs, 3 sets of 5
* Swiss Ball Crunch, 3 sets of 6

That burned 233 calories according to the heart rate monitor. No jogging today due to the storm, I'm hoping to make up for that this evening. Yeah right, where have you heard that before?
