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:
Consumed: 1850
Burned: 2250

Consumed: 1750
Burned: 2100

Consumed: 1830
Burned: 1980

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.

Hey, those numbers are really quite good.
Yay for the job. It does help normalize things.

The end is near

 of summer vacation that is. Teachers are due back next Monday, which means this is my last week of freedom. It's been a good summer. I&...
