Well I did it. I got up and made it to the gym this morning. I finally figured that I'm going to be tired weather I go to the gym or not, so I may as well go.

At the moment. I'm feeling really good. We'll see how it goes as the day progressess.

We started a new routine today, so Mondays are now 'back'.

After a brief warmup - here's how I did.

Pullups (Assissted): 160 x 17
Close Grip Lat Pulldowns: 120 x 6 / 125 x 5
Bent Rows: 150 x 6 / 160 x 5
Back Extensions: 25 x 15 / 25 x 10

Then we headed over and stretched for a long while. It felt so good!

I would just like to say that I HATE getting up early...Thanks :)

Food should be no problem today. Yogurt and PP for snack, spinich salad for lunch, WW English Muffin and Peanut butter for afternoon snack and some kind of chicken for dinner. All good clean fun.

Food has been and will continue to be challenging as the days go by. I'm back working in the field. This means traveling, client meetings and the like. I'm going to have to be creative with my food and plan well if I want to see progress.

Still no sign that we'll be able to move soon. Fiance has a second iron in the fire now and we'll see how that pans out. As soon as he gets a perminant position we'll start to talk about moving. Until then, I'm stuck getting up at 4:00AM to get my workout in.

I'll do what I've got to do. I'm sick of hating the way I look. I'm tired of avoiding mirrors.

Ok - enough of that - I better post before I lose my network connection (online on the ferry - how cool is that?)
