I didn't eat much today, busy all day. Food: two fried eggs, a small bit of onions and peppers, a cobb salad (no bacon), a small thing of soup and a few croutons. No exercise other than work.

Not good. You have to eat. Otherwise your body retains EVERYTHING. I've found the best way is to eat healthy to halfway decent, but also filling, small portions every four or so hours you're awake. That might mean a banana and a nutrigrain bar, or a peanut butter sandwich on wheat and water, etc. Eat enough that you're not hungry, but not too much that you're stuffed.

Yesterday: Two hours of Winter Guard practice for our show thats in a month. Spent part of it doing push-ups and running independently while my instructor worked with the Saber line.

Spent the rest of it practicing flagwork, drill, dance, etc. Including being on top of the box half the time to improve my balance.


Today: Walking to the mall to get KH Re:Coded after school, then getting back by 5:30 for more Guard practice till 8:45. Dance, Drill, flagwork, etc. Same as yesterday mostly.

I really hate it when the gym is full, like it was last night. Everyone bouncing around, trying to do cycles but weights keep getting pulled on or taken off. It's a mess, and it doesn't help that the equipment is old. Makes me not wanna be there.

Anyway...

Had an okay chicken parm sandwich for lunch which provided a nice little carboload before going to the gym. That's it though other than copious amounts of coffee and V8 fruit juice.

(200x15)4 Leg lift
(180x15)4 Leg curl (and now the ligements in my feet are sore..wierd)
(15x15)5 Butterfly press
Done in cycle

20x4 Inclined situps
20x4 inclined leglifts
done in cycle (because I was lazy)

(85x4)4 rope pull downs
(85x4)4 rope extends
(180x15)4 stomach press

Done in cycle (cuz there was no room)

and 20 minutes of cardio.

Then I went home and eat a lot of cookies that my roommate and her brother cooked. It's a good thing I don't care about weight.

Light day. Hopefully there won't be a lot of people tonight.

@Mesoian Welcome to the season of New Year's resolutions. Sadly most people will drop their resolution in a few months. But not anyone on here, right guys?!

Food:
Granola and Yogurt w/ berries, a cup and a half of coffee, two cups of water
Half a stuffed chicken breast, a cup of chocolate milk, two cups of water
chili, pasta, salad, a glass of milk, two cups of water
two pieces of chocolate, a cup of tea, more water

Exercise:
Thirty minutes on the treadmill running at 8.5 min/mile pace with a minute and a half of slow jogging between each mile.

I just realized that I've been running on the treadmill without thinking to add some incline, so I might not be able to run the half-marathon I've been training for at the pace I hoped to. arg! All of my long runs have been outside, so hopefully my legs got enough hill work in then.

Exercise
Jillian Michaels Shred-it With Weights: level 1, 30 minutes
Elliptical: 1 hour 5 minutes, 4.73 miles
Hanging leg raises: 3 sets (of 10 reps)

Food
Breakfast: French toast, turkey sausage
Snack: Coffee
Lunch: Rotini primavera with balsamic vinagrette, feta, and chicken breast, craisins
Snack: Strawberry smoothie
Dinner: Chicken breast, mashed potatoes, green beans
Snack: Chex

Got two of my grades from last semester, and one was pretty awful. Oh well, Hakuna Matatta. It's not like I actually plan on being a lawyer.

Instead of letting something so unimportant get me down, I'm going to spend the months leading to May prepping for Anime North. I have a lot of sewing projects, and a lot of weight to lose.

Wish me luck!

Exercise
Jogging: 4mph, 2 miles, 1.5 incline, 30 minutes
Jillian Michaels Banish Fat Boost Metabolism: 45 minutes
Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred: Approx 28 minutes

Food
Breakfast: Pita pizza with chicken breast, milk
Lunch: Rotini Primavera with balsamic vinagrette, feta, and chicken breast
Snack: Chex
Dinner: Chicken breast with hot sauce, vegetarian baked beans, green beans
Snack: Strawberry smoothie, milk

So, I enjoyed Shred-it With Weights so much that I went back to Target and picked up two more Jillian Michaels dvds.

The 30 Day Shred mercifully allows you to choose from three levels. Level one is no joke, but I think I might be moving on to level two sometime next week. We'll see. All in all, I had a moderate workout on level one, not too tough, but after doing taekwondo for so long, that is to be expected.

Banish Fat Boost Metabolism was BRUTAL. From start to finish, it seriously is no joke, and that is a good thing. This one lets you choose to either to do the whole 40 (she lies-it's 45) minute workout, or you can pick and choose circuits from a menu.

All in all, I'd say that was 20 dollars well spent. Now I have something to do at home on the days that it snows to much for me to get to the campus gym. It was either spend some cash, bore myself to death on the treadmill, or dig out my mom's old tae bo tapes. Ha.

Crunches are everybody's friend. ^_^ How soon is your convention?

I won't if I um...remember my New Year's resolution!

I feel kind of pathetic compared to some people here, but here goes.
Food: If you really must know, I ate pasta....and more pasta....
Exercise: Around half an hour of doing my jazz dance and warming up,
another 10 minutes warming up,
then 50 minutes of doing my jazz production dance and learning an insanely long/hard kickline--I actually used my abs! :P

Edit: Does it count if you're exercising your brain? If so, I've been doing that ever since I woke up! >.> Homework...

Oh god you guys. I ate cookies. I ate so many cookies.

My roommate, her boyfriend and I had a movie night and they baked chocolate chip cookies, which resulted in me eatting like a dozen cookies, which completely effed my nutrient intake. Considering all I had for lunch was the worst Steak Bomb sub ever, I'm fairly sure I didn't get enough of what I needed for a good workout.

So..

(25x15)3 Dumbell Curls
(25x15)3 Hammer Curls
(25x15)3 Sitting Dumbell Press
In cycle

20x4 inclined leg lifts
20x4 inclined sit ups

95x3 Rope pulls
95x3 Rope extends

And then (105x15)x2 power cleans...because I ran out of energy.

When people here say eat, they're not bullshitting you. If you have no energy in your system, you're not going to be able to carry yourself through a proper workout. Make sure you're taking in enough calories to actually get enough of a workout where it makes a difference. I did about half a workout in the same timeframe as it usually takes me to rock out a full day's worth of exercise because I put too much bullshit in my system.

Ah...I'm gonna go eat like...9 clementines.
