So very, very, mad at myself. Last night, however, I was very excited to buy a Big Mac and a Quarter Pounder at a ridiculously low price... $3.75 for both!--Some 11/11/11 deal. How could I resist? But in hindsight, I'd like to sock myself right in the flipping nose for it.

Fast food is for the weak! Punishment is a no carb day. Also going to try and get a nice long cardio session in and an extra long and painful yoga session.

10a M1: CC
When I get hungry.. broccoli
Going to do circuits of cardio between treadmill (10 mins each time) and stationary bike (HIIT - 5 mins each time) for as long as I can
1p M2: protein, water, vitamins
4 M3: chicken breast, zucchini
7 M4: protein, water
9 M5: tuna
11 M6: protein

Being in my last month of college... I've had to balance between living it up, saving what little money I make, and preparing for Tough Mudder. I guess I feel like I didn't do enough of any, but that's just who I am--never doing enough or always doing too much. Anyway, wish I had actually stuck to this journal 100% the whole time, but no regrets. I have the rest of my life after this final semester to get it right. By 25 years of age, I hope to have a 6pack (lame goal I know, but I was the kid everyone nicknamed 'fatass' in middle school). So I deserve to want it imo.

Anyway, TM is Dec 4th. I have 2 weeks to get my endurance up, other than that (and my flabby abs) I'm limber & strong enough to finish the race with my team. I won't be the slowest member anyway I'll want to be jogging at least 3 non treadmill miles a day, 5 days a week until then.

What I'm more excited for is moving to S.FL with all my best friends and finally having a training partner again after training solo for 2 years (and most of my 5 year college career). I'm going to be back in shape so fast. 6 meals a day, 5 days a week training, valet job at first, no alcohol, no junk food, and lot's of motivation.


Today:
11a
20 mins cardio Treadmill w/ incline. Moderate to moderate-high speed 10 mins.
Stationary bike HIIT -- 9 minutes of high intensity intervals, 1 min cooldown.
12p M1: banana, protein, water
Time to hit the books at the library until I'm ready for my exam tomorrow.
2 M2: missed the meal
4:45 M3: chicken breast, broccoli
7 M4: chicken, sweet potato
10 M5: protein

Less than a week until Tough Mudder!

Things I've accomplished:
-doubled endurance
-doubled flexibility
-graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Business the day after Tough Mudder

Things I didn't accomplish but wanted to [and plan to complete within the year]:
-fat loss
-quit drinking (**** the day I began to enjoy booze, now I have to strengthen my willpower)


Thanksgiving was a holiday, pardon me for partaking in its earthly delights

But today,

M1: protein shake, water
M2: oatmeal
M3: protein
M4: black beans
M5: veggies, beans, oatmeal, dunno... maybe i'll by meat at the store

Race is on Sunday, I need to do some research on carb loading. Either doing that before sundown on Saturday or on Friday. Otherwise, im going to up the cardio and lower my carb intake (and junk food & beer) as much as I can tolerate.

Goals after graduation: Income, self-sufficiency, fitness, photography, and most of the world too

Bear I should have listened to you! Haha. Too bad I didn't have my computer all weekend >.>

Got my butt handed to me after 8-9 miles. But I completed it none the less! I learned my lesson--got put in my place. Can't wait for next year.



So Tough Mudder is over this year. I am officially a graduate since Tuesday. Waiting on my final grades and diploma.

Moving to Naples, FL this weekend if all goes to plan. After that I will be busting butt being active and healthy with my friends. I plan to log every day's activity and food still. Guess I'll start now...

10a M1: whey protein
12p M2: oatmeal
3 M3: cottage cheese, peanuts
6 M4: chicken sausage, eggs, onion, evoo
9 M5: deli sandwich: whole wheat flat sandwich things, turkey slices, spinach, stone ground mustard
11 M6: cottage cheese


Not planning on activity today, still sore from tm. But I may do some yoga or light cardio in the evening when I get bored

yeah, contrary to popular belief, a carbo load should not be a single event. I would ramp up carbs the whole week prior, with about 2 days out being the "peak" or most carbs taken in, this will allow sufficient muscle loading and storage. its a learning experience, you will do better next year! just stay consistent.
