Got lots of exercise in at Cubs today! lots of running, so that's a plus!

Making food now, may even have a bottle of beer as I have two left from my birthday and I feel like a treat smile
And I think I've been very good lately

And then onto the exercise once my food has settled! I think I may add even more press-ups today, like another set.

King Tut,
We'll have to change your motto from "...until lambs become lions" to "...until abs become irons."

..unless you buy more beer after you've finished the two remaining. ;-)

Ate too much Chinese food. Still feel sick. I've been active pretty much all day so i suppose thats ok. I'll try better tomorrow though. All week i've been up at 8am tho, which is really good for me. Hopefully i can continue with normal person wake up times when i get home.

Matt - its really interesting what you said about dissociation. For years i have been running though i never called myself a runner. I never competed in any kind of running. Maybe it was like running away from my problems. I have all these journals from years ago that i looked out recently and they're all just logs of distances i've run. With a bit of obsessing about certain girls. When i read them i was like wow dude, you were so boring. I also read somewhere that walking out in nature and talking was good therapy.

Like yesterday, today it was a protein bar for breakfast, a ham and turkey sandwich with some pretzels for lunch and another grilled chicken breast with soup for dinner. (I have yet to eat the dinner but all I have to do is heat it up.) Just got back from a 3.5 mile run in the sweltering-ass heat. Tomorrow I plan to hit the gym early and do my abs and cardio before work. After work, it'll be time for beer and XBOX. cool

That's absolutely a brilliant motto! I love it, I saw your post just before I went to exercise and it definitely helped me to push through and put a smile on my face!

I can happily say I only drank one bottle of beer! The other I think I will have tomorrow. Tomorrow I am packing for my canal trip, and I feel bad leaving a lonely beer in the fridge all on its own lol.

One apprehension I have is that this canal trip is this Saturday to next Saturday- so it will be hard getting back on this exercise routine when I return! But I will do it! And I will get as much exercise as I can while I am away. You will all have to hold down the fort whilst i'm away and keep up the good work! I should still be able to do my exercise tomorrow though.

txb, you are way better than me at the early wake-up times! (or normal people wake up times). I'm still getting into work late every day- but I just start work straight away when I get in, and don't have any breaks, so I get my work done. Nobody complains. It seems to be a "how you use your hours, not how many hours" kind on mentality (productivity, basically), so that's good. I use Nytol now to get to sleep- which really helps! I get a good number of hours of sleep, but still getting up on-time is a struggle. During my canal trip I have to get up at about 7am every morning before the kids wake, so that will force me into an early routine (early to me).

Just noticed your "Edit Reason" Will, "Added 4th beer", it is a dangerous trap to fall into, but I know what it is like especially if, as you say, work sucked all week. Hope you keep your chin up, hope you have a better day tomorrow!

Guys,

Google around on the activity of alcohol in a man's system. I couldn't believe it when I found out what alcohol does to the male body for several days. I've always heard fitness trainers warn about the adverse impact of alcohol on a fitness program but I never knew why.

The short of it is, alcohol gives men a pear-shaped torso. It has to do with hormones as well as carbs and it takes days for the alcohol to leave the system. That means it is doing its work in TWO WAYS on our mid-area (belly, hips, butt, and love handles) FOR DAYS regardless of the cardio or weightlifting we're doing.

The price of ongoing alcoholic beverages? "Goodbye, goal of a V-frame; hello, Baby Huey!" blush

Go Team Tut! laugh

Alcohol is a headwind for sure. Like everything else, moderation is the key. I'm in a pretty good spot in my food/alcohol intake versus exercise regimen. I still have a V frame, but only because I try to strike a balance. I've also heard that ethanol emulates estrogen compounds---which in excess makes the normal fat/muscle distribution go astray (in the male body).

After a really stressful week at work, the four IPAs are more than I normally would have on a Thursday night. I still ended up getting a little bit of exercise by mowing the grass ---albeit with a nice buzz after dinner.

Tomorrow is back to normal with an early morning swim---followed by some lat work to keep the V!

Will
