The Weight Lifter

Friday, August 25, 2006


251 on my scale, 250 at golds. That's 8.76%. So yeah, I'm really loosing some weight. I've been averaging 1 hour a day on the bike.

The Warcraft rule is really working - I have done cardio ever day this week, ranging from 45 minutes to two hours (twice!).

255.6 on my scale (255.1 trend weight). I was 258 at Golds, so I've lost 5.85% of body weight in two weeks - 16 pounds (yikes!)

Back from vacation, still on track.

Woot! Back from vacation, at the same weight. Yeah, kinda sucks, I have now lost a week of weight lost, but at least I didn't put any on. The H2 was a blast to drive - good to see the parents, and the highschool class reunion was a lot of fun (if a bit odd..)

Business Trip and Reunion

Well, this sucks! I'm going to go on a work trip to Chicago, and then home to Michigan for week. I am at 253 right now, with a -3.8 variance. Going GREAT, worried how vacation is going to screw me :(

Warcraft and the Bike?

OK, I've got a idea. I haven't played Warcraft in a year or so. I've been wanting to level my Warlock up, so... I think I'm going to start playing. Of 'course that is a major addiction (I was a senior guide and part of the quest troope for a couple of years in EQ, if that gives you any idea how much I got into it).

Anyway. I hate doing cardio. Having the bike helps a lot, but I think I'm going to combine both. I have hooked up the 47 inch LCD to my XPS Laptop. I've straped the keyboard to the top of the bike, and bought a tall table to put the mouse on.

So, I can ONLY play Warcraft when I do cardio. And when I'm doing cardio, I can play as much Warcraft as I want. I figure this will help regulate the downside to Warcraft, as eventually my legs will give out, LOL!

Bought a Recumbent bike today. Looking back at the last time I lost weight (42 pounds), I did LOT of cardio. But going to the gym every day is a grind. And I SUCK at getting up early and going to the gym (which is the best time to do cardio, from what I read). So this makes sense, I think.

Start of Diet / Golds contest

Did the weigh in today. I was 267 on my scale (258.6 trend) and 274 at Golds. I had a big breakfast and lunch this morning, which accounts for the extra poundage. I damn well better loose some weight, as I've put some on the last couple of weeks.

Two days and counting

Two days to go - I'm at 261 (OUCH!) with a trend of 257.7. I'm WAY overeating, which is bad, I know, but kinda fun :)
