Time to catch things up

Okay, I have a lot of catching up to do here, but first I want to talk about my exercise experiment today. I went to school and got home around 10:15. I immediately changed and went to workout. I worked out hard. I mean hard. It was great. I think I'm on to something here. I'm going to get up in the morning and do the elliptical or bike for 30-45 minutes, then do my strength training when I come home. I think this will work out well. So that's going to be my plan for the next week or so, see how it goes.

Now the numbers. I have not had time to really calculate these and I've been avoiding doing it. I knew it wasn't going to be great. But I forced myself to sit down and do it tonight. So here it goes:
Sunday:
Consumed: 1850
Burned: 2250

Monday:
Consumed: 1750
Burned: 2100

Tuesday:
Consumed: 1830
Burned: 1980

Wednesday:
Consumed: 2200
Burned: 2100

Do you see a trend here? My calories consumed slowly increase and the calories burned slowly go down. Hmmmm..... Also, I'm not burning as much as I would like to. This was the first week though and I wanted to get an idea of what was going on. Also, in some really good news, I got a job!! Woo Hoo!! Now my schedule will normalize and I'll be able to set a schedule for workouts. I'm very happy. With this week and with a new job. So now I'm off.

Still working things out

I used to make these snap decisions and immediately rush into implementing whatever weird idea crossed my mind. I would decide I needed to d...
