Confession time: I've been bad lately. On Friday I ate two maple bars for breakfast (yes they were delicious) and had five slices of pizza for lunch. It just sounded so much better than cottage cheese and microwaved chicken breasts... again. Oh yeah, and today I ate four cheeseburgers at McD - no fries though. And no exercise for a couple of days either. Feelin the guilt!

Shoulders, Arms, Abs (tricep and forearm blasting session)

Lateral raises: 20x10,8 15x10
Front dumbell raises: 20x10,10 15x10
Bent over lateral raises: 20x10,10 15x10
Barbell upright rows: 110x8 90x10,10
Arnold Presses: 20x10,10 15x10

Curls: 60x10,5 50x5,10
Hammer Curls: 20x10,4 15x6,9,failure
Reverse Curl (bare olympic bar) 10,10,10
Concentration Curl: 20x8, 15x8,8
Finish: set of 21s at 30lb

Wrist curl: 60x10 50x10,10
Reverse wrist curl:30x10,10,10
Forearm Twists: 15x10,10,10
Plate pinching: 25lbx30sec,30,30

Cross Face extensions: 20x10,10 15x10,10,10,10
Skull Crushers: 50x10,10,7 40x10,10
Bench Press (mid grip) 160x2 (too much weight and no spotter!) 130x10,8 110x10 90x 10,10,10,10

Crunches: 20,20,20
Bicycle Crunches: 20,20,20
Oblique sit-ups: 20,20,20
Ab Roller extensions: 15,15,15

Took a long time to get all that done (and I probably went catabolic), but I needed to get back in the groove.

Motivational therapy today...

Bought a sweet curling bar. It's hollow and hardly weighs anything - plus it uses clips instead of screw-on knobs. Also picked up a couple of 25 lb plates for it. I hate doing arm work, and maybe that'll help motivate me a bit

Last night - Cardio... Triceps were *still* sore from the blasting I gave them on the 25th, otherwise I would have done chest exercises. But doing dips and bench presses with sore tri's didn't sound very productive.

2.5 miles, 19 minutes. Lots of walking, but I still got it in under 20 minutes. Guess I started out at too fast a pace

Arms, shoulders, abs.

Had a really really good workout tonight!!! Feeling good!
I also tried a new shocking technique. In this case you superset opposing muscle groups and do 20 sets. I tried that out tonight on arms, using light weights. If I'd gone heavy, I'd never have been able to complete all the sets.

Lateral Raises: 20x10,7 15x7(failure)
Front Raises: 20x10,10 15x10
Bent over lateral raises: 20x10,10,10
Barbell upright row: 110x8 90x10,10
Arnold Presses: 20x10,10 15x10
The shoulders were simply on fire toward the end of this. They continued to burn for quite a while afterwards... not nice, but hopefully they'll grow!

Wrist curls: 60x10,10,10
Reverse wrist curls: 60x8 40x10,10

Shocking set:
Curls: 40x10,9,8,7,6,5,4,5,6,8,10,10,11,12,13,14,15,14,13,12
Skull Crushers: 60x10,9,8,7,6,5,4 40x5,6,8,10,10,11,12,13,14,15,14,13 60x12
Because the weights were light, this wasn't too difficult, except for the last few sets. Had a massive pump going at the end of this! No doubt it'll hurt tomorrow

Crunches: 20,20,20
Bicycle Crunches, 20,20,20
Oblique sit-up: 20,20,20
Ab roller: 15,15,15

Did a really nice slow set on the abs. Got a good burn and a mild runner's high from it.

Oh yeah - I managed to smash my finger tonight at work. Changed some brushes out on the generator, and when I was closing the panel, the fan sucked it shut on my middle finger. Now it's purple and swollen at the last knuckle... and about useless for holding weights.

Today is a rest day.

I'm very close to the one year anniversary of the day I decided to change my life. That's when I gave up my daily (!!!) 3-6 beers, sweets, and starchy food habit.

It seems appropriate to acknowledge that one year of change, and the past 6 months of hard exercise. I want to show others that it *can* be done, and also to acknowledge what has been possible with everyone's continuous and good-natured support.

In the next week, I'll post a pic of what I look like today in gym shorts only. I'm a little self conscious about posting these things Also, I'm not *quite* where I'd like to be BF-wise for a half-nekkid photo, but hey - it's an anniversary, right?

On a less pleasant note, the middle finger I smashed yesterday is a mess... I've been writing in the control room logbook and trying to hold it straight, which looks like I'm flipping someone the bird . Earlier tonight blood started oozing out from the back part of the fingernail. I highly recommend avoiding smashed fingers, on your dominant hand anyway
