...Am Feelin' Fine (Workout 17) -OR- ...Am Cold
Current Weight: 225 (ish) I’m not too sure on the exact weight today, I forgot to measure at first, so my number is off. I’ll re-weigh tomorrow morning and update the page. I am hoping that this week I start losing weight again. A week has gone by now at school so my body should be getting used to it again. Now the weight should come off again (I hope). All this muscle building...
...Have a Dream
So I’m sitting here at my desk this morning, trying to start my resume, and my mind begins to wander. I am dreaming of a time where I’m in a phone interview. I don’t know who it’s for, but I can feel my heart beating. It is not beating out of fear (totally), but it is beating because I’m anxious, and excited. ”This is the job I want, I can do this,”...
...Am the Grossest Man Aliiiiiiiive (Workout 16)
I feel so gross right now. I think it was originally about 76 in my room this morning when I began to workout. There is no part of my clothes that isn’t socked in sweat right now. The workouts are getting easier as I go. My muscles seem to be growing very very well. The problem I still have is with the sensors sometimes. I had to quit an exercise today because it wouldn’t...
...Can See Some Progress
So I took a peek in the mirror today and noticed something I have not seen since high-school : Ribs This is really nice, I am now happier than I have been, but at the same time, disappointed. Why disappointed? I feel that way because if I’m already seeing some rib, it means my upper body isn’t going to narrow any more. Of course, it’s not a bad thing, it’s just...

My programming class is now all about making games in Python, and making dynamic webpages in Java. I think I just made it to heaven.
...Am A Normal College Student (Workout 15)
Today’s workout was pretty good. There was a lot of focus on the upper body and cardio. These ten pound weights I’m using are just destroying my triceps, but I know I’ll be better off by the end of the three weeks. Other than that, nothing else is really new with the game. I do hope my body gets shocked into weight loss soon though. I’m more active now that I’m...
...Is Very Happy Despite Everything to Do (Workout...
Today’s workout was annoying. I had to skip quite a bit of it so I could make my meeting at 11AM with my class advisor. At my meeting many things were discussed: Can I graduate? May I get into a better class? Do you know about jobs I can get into? Is this class going to be fun? Do you think that professor could get me a job? Answers were: Yes Yes Yes Yes Probably, just tell...
Today I could not work out. I slept until 8:30 which cut my wake up way too close to my 10 AM class. The workout will resume on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Next week it will return to normal if I can get a noon class on Tuesday and Friday. —— Other than that, I had class today. That went well. I got into one of the two courses I wanted to get into. However, that forced...

Current Weight: 225.0 lbs I’m not going to say I’m very surprised with the gain this week. There was a lot of stress put on me by my parents, and myself. As far as I can tell, I gain about a pound or two whenever I move. Today’s workout was pushed as hard as possible, and it showed. Apparently, I worked off about ten calories more than what it thought I would today....
...Am Just Here, Doin' Nothin'
Yesterday I moved back to RPI to begin my final semester. It took me about four hours to unpack what I had because I got so distracted in the process. One of my friends is letting me borrow Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Although I like the story of this game (and the first one), I really dislike the pacing. I agree that there should be some fighting sections to break up the puzzles, but those...
...Am Pooped (Workout 12) -OR- ...Am Anxious
Woohoo! Workout 12 (AKA Phase 1) is complete! Today was no walk in the park either. A lot of the workout consisted of squatting (which I’m almost used to now) and jumping around. At one point of the workout it had Foot Fires lead into Stride Jumps. The Stride Jumps then led into Mountain Climbers. My heart rate climbed to above 170 for the first time (that I’ve noticed) in a...
...Forget to Post (Workout 11) -OR- ...Have to Get...
Tomorrow is the final workout in the first Phase of the 9 Week Program (3 Weeks per Phase [EA Sports Active 2]). I will talk about the differences I’ve noticed over the three weeks after tomorrow, maybe with a picture. There probably should have been a before picture, but I forgot. This picture will serve as a before Week 4 to Week 6 picture so you and I can see the real-life results...
...Am Not In the Mood (Workout 10)
I woke up dizzy/light headed. Not sure what it was, but when it abated I did my workout. I’ve been drinking water too, but I don’t feel like typing too much today. Going to re-play Final Fantasy 13 on my PS3 for the Trophies (I played it once for the 360 before I got rid of my 360). EDIT : I lied, today is definitely a Bethesda day. Time to try and finish New Vegas. Workout...
...Am Here (Workout 9) -OR- ...Try New Things
Current Weight : 224.0 lbs Yay! It may not be lower than the lowest point last week, but it does show that I was right about that last workout. I’m surprised at how quickly my body is beginning to bounce back from exhaustion. —— Today’s workout was tiring to say the least. There was a lot of squatting, jumping, and jogging in place. I found myself gasping for...

...Hate My Body -OR- ...Hate My Body
Every time I think I’ll do fine and I’ll be able to take a good weight, my body wants to fool with me. Today it put me right back up to 226. I’m chaulking that up to my muscles hurting, no exercise yesterday, and (probably) a lot of salt intake yesterday. The program knows just when to make my muscles burn so that I’m stuck gaining weight for a day or two. It’s...

...Really Hate this System (Workout 8) -OR- ...Do...
Today was a bastard. Three sets of Mountain Climbers, followed by more cardio, followed by all lower body workouts. I am pleased to find out that I can actually do a Squat Hold for 20 seconds without cursing at the television now. It’s amazing how much strength and endurance I’ve attained in how short I’ve used the program. Props to EA Sports for making a really good...
...Get Pushed to My Limit (Workout 7) -OR- ...Am...
Whew, I am sweaty. I believe it had to do with: Wearing a heavier shirt today with sleeves Not opening my window Not getting the best sleep last night Doing 2 sets of 55 Mountain Climbers and 15 Reverse Crunches The more I work with EA Sports Active 2, the more I realize that it’s been put together really really well. Not once have I had two similar workouts (yet) and I have been...

Down another half a pound today. Woohoo! —— I went ahead and did two of last Thursday’s workout, like I did on Sunday. It want a nice break from all the lower body stuff I’ve been doing. —— Yesterday I read all of My Booky Wook 2, Stitches (a graphic memoir), and Coraline. The last two may be shorter reads, but all in all, I got about 800 pages through...

Just glanced into my fridge to see what I could rummage up for a lunch/breakfast today. Noticed the Lettuce Gods have deemed me worthy and bequeathed upon me the gift of a bag of Romaine. Mmmmm Romaine [Insert Homer Simpson Gargle here] ~Jared~
...Ponder (Workout 6) -OR- ...Am Overly Excited
Just finished another pretty demanding workout. There were three new workouts today: Basketball Passing, Basketball Stealing, and Triceps Raises. The first two are squat, lunge, and wiggle my arms around (not too bad) but the triceps workout was picky. It had a difficult time telling I was lifting or putting my arms down. I think it had something to do with how high up my sensors were placed....
...Feel Much Better (Workout 5) -OR- ...Am Awesome...
Current Weight : 226.0 lbs Well, it’s not a great jump down from last week, but it’s a start. —— Today was a pretty good, full body workout. I got fairly tired throughout and am really pleased with the way it went. My hope is that my body now recognizes what I’m doing and reacts appropriately. I could really like it to react appropriately. The only new...
Pumpkin, you’re dating a tumbling, tumbling dickweed.– Patrick Bateman
So today is/was kind of meh. It’s been snowing for most of the day today and I figured it would be a great day for rest. I was wrong. The game had me do a weigh-in and a cardio test today. I feel I did fairly well on the cardio. It focused on doing foot-fires for about a minute or two and then a walk off. Since I was already up and burning calories, I went to the basement to go for...

...Am in So Much Pain (WorkOut 4) -OR-...
I woke up today with a slight tightness in my shoulders and triceps. Nothing too big, I figured I could go ahead and do today’s workout if it had to do with upper body. I thought that it would be two days of lower boady/cardio then two of upper body. Guess who was wrong. This guy. Anyway, I boot up my PS3 and pop in the game and notice that it’s going to be a lower body workout....

...Feel Decent (Day 3) -OR- ...Am Content
I will be doing Current Weight every monday on here from now on. Silly water weight. (Also I’m only putting “days” on posts I make after a workout) —— Today’s workout was so nice. It was only supposed to be twenty or so minutes and focus on the upper body. A lot of the exercises involved shoulders and triceps and running for cardio. I greatly enjoyed a...

Current Weight : No Change Since Yesterday —— I didn’t expect much different from yesterday, my quads/groin/shoulders have been sore since late in the day yesterday. Water weight is what I assume (of course, it could have been that delicious Little Caesar’s). I think I’ll be a little lower tomorrow, if not then I can deal with a little bit of fluctuation. Yeah, I know, I should be...

Current Weight : 225.8 lbs —— EDIT : MY QUADS ARE SOOOOOOOOO TIRED. Glad tomorrow is a rest day. —— Minor progress from yesterday, but I don’t expect too much just starting out. I’m having a bunch of difficulty with the medium workouts. It’s not that I cannot do them, it’s just that they are destroying me. A lot of the workouts...
